Do you have any idea how many you got correct? Or atleast felt relatively confident on. I've seen posts that say 20 should get a passing mark, but definitely at 21.

So how do they let you know if you passed or failed? Is it on printout they give you after you come out of the exam room? I need to know what to expect.

it comes up on the screen after you complete their survey... and then they print it out...

"Congratulations! A preliminary analysis of your test results shows that you were successful in achieving the passing score established by SOA/CAS/CIA for exam P/1 (Probability). Your examination responses will be verified by the SOA/CAS/CIA and your official score report will be mailed to you in approximately five to six weeks"

I really hope it stands...

Yayyy I passed. I got the same thing. I thought the test was a lot easier than expected....I think I knew all but 2 or 3 of them....so probably got 22 at the least correct....

What are the odds of them saying you passed only to find out you really failed though???
