Default Coaching Actuaries earned level for LTAM

Hi everyone. Someone has probably asked the somewhere already, but I haven't found a thread yet so I thought I'd start one. For those who have passed LTAM/MLC (or at least taken it), what are your thoughts on ADAPT for this exam? I'm wondering if the good ole "earned level of 7 means 90% pass rate" applies here.

When I've passed previous exams, I've only had an earned level of between 5 and 6 (sometimes lower). My goal is obviously to get my earned level higher, but i'm just wondering how earned level correlates to exam passing for this exam.

Thanks!

Instead of focusing on earned level score, I would advise getting comfortable with passing level 5 exams with ease and then solving every written answer problem you can. From my experience, the multiple choice is pretty straight forward, but you'll need to expose yourself to as many written answer problems as possible. That's how I ended up (finally) passing, but everyone is different!
