Post Exam MAS-I October 2018 Discussion

Second MAS-I sitting. Might as well start early for it.
Let's share our study progress. Would also appreciate opinion & feedback from the spring exam.

Looks like I'm going to be sitting this for the third time( I did the last sitting of S, and this sitting of MAS-I). Based on the result I'll end up with a 5.... I think I'm definitely taking the source material approach for the third time.

Decent chance I'm here, depending on the pass mark.

I plan on doubling up in Fall because if I fail it will be by 1 question. I don't want 1 question missed to mean 6 more months of winter...

There is a chance I have to retake it too.
Meanwhile, I will get OC1 and OC2 out of the way this summer.

I thought it is a multiple choice exam? Shouldn't pass/fail result be instant?

I know my tentative score. They have not released what score is passing and they have not released the final answer key after the ambiguous and defective question report period.

It was so much fun the first time I thought I'd do a second.

Yeah it was so fun, I'd retake it even if I end up passing it.
