I just did the MC section of Fall 2018 exam and got a 17/20 in just under 80 minutes. Since I get a similar score on an Adapt EL 5 while barely finishing on time, I would estimate these problems between level 3 and 4 for the most part. I'm not sure what the general consensus is on the MC section of this exam, but I know the exam itself had a very low pass rate, so these questions might even be harder than they will be going forward.

As far as ASM, I have not had any experience with those practice exams, so I can't comment.

I've been giving myself about half of the points if the formulas were more or less correct, but I couldn't figure the answer out (for example, if I make a mistake in an integral or something).

I've had a couple written answer questions where I know that I got it right, but I don't know if my explanation was good enough to convey that I knew what I was talking about, so 50% for that as well.

For questions where I don't do any work and just write down the formula, I usually give myself one point (if it's like a 3 pt problem).

Not sure there's a good way to do it. I just try to remember if I'm generous on one part, I'll be harsher on a different part.

Less than two weeks left, but SOA hasn't still updated the exam center yet. Should I expect the exact location sometime this week?
