It's not loading for me either - my guess is they're uploading / updating it now.

I knew if I passed that it would be a 6. Unsurprisingly, I got a 6. After 4 tries I will totally take it. Off to MFE for me!

Luckily got a 7...

I thought myself well-prepared with MC, but did not practice enough on WA...
For those taking this again Fall 2017, practicing on WA is really really really important...

Squeaked by with a 6!

I don't know if I would use TIA again, but that's just my personal opinion after using manuals for the other 4.

I'll see some of you guys & gals in the modules threads!

Congrats. Yeah, I think the only thing we know for sure is we have no idea what the pass marks are or how liberal they are with partial credit. My advice is to continue self grading conservatively when reviewing your FSA exams, it'll never get your hopes too high.

Congrats everyone who passed!

I also passed with an 8

I only used TIA but put in probably near 500 hrs. I didn't feel comfortable on anything less than that unfortunately...

I asked SOA for the July ASA list cutoff and release date. They only replied back with the release date 7/28. Any guess/knowledge if people who met final requirement with today's transcript post will make the July list?
