12.5 weeks for me! I wonder what it'll be like a year from now, since these things only seem to get longer. People are going to be waiting 4 months for results. Something needs to change.

I'm glad to know that I am not the only one who has been waiting forever. I am on Module 6 and haven't received a pass for 2,3 or 4 yet. It has now been 13 weeks since I submitted Module 2. I am starting to get concerned!

I'm on 11 weeks for Module I; at this rate I'll have the FA by the time I'm waiting for Module IV Results!

Of course the SOA doesn't care as much about grading EOMs. They make more money grading IA and FA

Why don't they just give an auto pass after 8 weeks if they haven't looked at it my then...I mean they're probably not going to grade it in the additional 7 weeks that they're taking beyond that point! I guess I'm just frustrated because I've been on these FAP's for 4 months and have little to show for it besides that I've submitted some exercises

I think the assumption is that after you submitted for x weeks (rumor has it, the magic # is 8), they rubber-stamped a pass. Maybe they are just too busy counting the money they collect from people failing the assessments (IA and FA). Sorry, a little bit bitter here because of my 2nd fail attempt at IA. If you are frustrated about it now, talking about IA and their impossibly vague feedback, which of course I hope, you won't have to find out. I understand your impatience about how long this takes. I started FAP last May and still haven't passed IA. Yes, I was taking another exam, then slack off some but still....Good news is I haven't heard anyone failing EOMs. Hang in there.

Ugh. I'm sorry that must suck. I submitted my IA last Friday and am hoping that I did enough to pass. Sorry that you are going through that.
