That is, indeed, what it felt like at times.

Here's hoping I can get PA on the 1st try!

Passing Candidates names and percentages are up. Holy crap the pass rate was 49.4%...

If I had to guess, this was a relatively easier exam/more people were prepared, but the SOA did not increase the pass mark by much regardless.

I just looked at actuarial-lookup for LTAM and MLC, and the test has never had a pass rate higher than this sitting's.

With that being said, I passed so I'm not complaining. If anything, I'm glad the SOA passed more people so they don't have to take this stupid test again.

Yeah, I think this is exactly right. It was a slightly easier exam, combined with the fact that people had to prepare like it was going to be just as brutal as Fall '18.

From now on, upcoming sittings will only get harder I'm pretty sure.
