Say if I have completed VEE Applied Statistics but I do not pass C, I still have to take the VEE Mathematical Statistics right?

Wow they are still grading 8/21 submissions? Was there a spike in submission on 8/21? The only thing I remember that happened on that day was the solar eclipse.

i think they are just stalled. i doubt there was a spike of submissions. see this thread. sounds like they are doing something now. hopefully this doesn't mean they take care of the backlog and then just sit on the rest of them.

I do think there was a spike in general this year, probably more so the closer we get to the deadline and people are scrambling to complete requirements.

I did a count on the FA results tracking spreadsheet and it looked like (unless I miscounted, which is always possible) there have been twice as many FA submissions this year as last year (with still 1.5 months to go), which means twice as many EOMs.

Not that I appreciate that excuse to delay grading...this is definitely one of those external forces" that causes a "behavioral shift". So at least now it's nice to see that they are adjusting after "monitoring results" for the last 2 months and "re-designing the solution" ...

oh, i meant i doubt there was a spike just on that one day. i agree, there are probably more people doing fap right now in general because of the march deadline. i avoided it a really really long time before they announced this deadline. i'm probably more extreme than most, but i'm sure there is a spike.

Oh yeah, I knew what you meant about the spike on one day. I just wanted to comment about the spike in general, haha.

I'm in the same boat as you...finished my prelims in 2011, just now finishing FAP...should've had it done 3 years ago.

Like you, I took a little time off. I also did the EA exams in that gap.

i'm worse. stopped in 2006. i should have completed FAP immediately. i switched jobs and got overwhelmed at work and found it hard to focus on exams with how overwhelmed i was, so i stopped. trying to rectify that now.

actually, i'm not even sure when i stopped. i passed my last prelim earlier than 2006. i passed my last exam in general in 2006 i think. it was an ea exam though.

several of my exams are from the pre 2000 100 series.
