Additional details can be found at the following:

If anything changes, a further announcement would be made.

Regards,

Candidates who passed either the first exam or the make-up exam will receive a PASS for Exam 5. They will not be informed as to which exam(s) they passed. To allow our graders to focus their time where it could have the most benefit, we decided the make-up exam would not be graded for candidates who passed the first exam. In order to avoid potential disparity across passing candidates, we will not provide the numerical score of 6 to 10 for this sitting.
I understand that there can be a trade-off between transparency and speed in reporting exam results, but it seems that both attempts could eventually at some point be graded, with the better of the two scores becoming the 'official' one.

They're not providing a numerical score for passes. Just pretend it's 2016.

Actually, with regards to a numerical score, I'd better be careful what I wish for...

This seems more reasonable, I bet what they are actually doing is just grading the easiest questions first and as soon as someone has earned the minimum pass mark they exclude them from being graded in other questions. This might be complicated but significantly more efficient. Otherwise I cant think of why they wouldn't give you a score.

I don't quite understand why the "potential disparity" even matters. Employers only care about the PASS, not the exact grade, and it'd have been nice for me to have some idea of how well I did.

Because you might have just barely passed the first one despite horrible problems, and not had the second one (which would have had a high score) graded. It seems kinda unfair to me to publish pass marks that aren't comparable like that.

Welcome to 2016. It's quite new for the CAS to give you a passing score. Most of us posting here never got that info.
