There was recently an exam with many blatant errors in solutions, and I emailed them about 3 of the most obvious ones (the types that any reasonable actuary would agree on), but couldn't get them to budge on any of them.
I wanted to scour every inch of the syllabus, because I was certain this approach is offered up directly.

I think Group Chapter 22, table 22.2 makes this a much easier argument. Maximum limits versus MOOP, but there should be reasonable expectation for any candidate to apply what they know.

Just a followup. After letting this whole thing run its course, I have the following advice:

Don't bother. There is no evidence from the exam committee's response that my objection was read. It is reasonable to assume they did. I find the response disrespectful to the profession. The moral of this story is if you know more than the syllabus and provide a more accurate answer, you are not a "well prepared candidate."

If changing their mind would not have resulted in a pass, they had a much easier (much faster) way out. It appears I passed, but without credit. I suspect many people did.

The exam committee and I have reached an impasse. I will not contact them again.
