This is from the CAS, but I think it indicates how you can make exam grading take so long.

Does everyone feel like they either got a 5 or a 6? I re-graded myself and estimated 62.5. I have high hopes that the pass mark is low... but absolutely no way to know. I guess I should assume I got a 5.

I don't remember well enough what answers I put to grade myself... What's your split between MC/WA for the 62.5?

I've actually graded myself between a 63 and a 67.5 (mentally confirmed 32 points for MC). Just hoping the wind blows in my favor.

MC- 28 (only 14 right)
WA- 34.5

For the MC I looked at the PAK, but for WA I just re-did all of them and conservatively graded them. Full points for confident answers, half credit for anything I could've done well on but wasn't 100%, no credit for the covariance question.
