My thoughts as well. I guess we'll see if the pass mark is any lower than usual.

I don't think the fall exam pass marks have been released. The model solutions will probably be released at the end of July.

You can have your time adjustment all you want and yet, no one gets the bump from failing to passing.

Well, perhaps if the pass mark was initially adjusted so that the pass ratio is 40 - 45%, then some people with 5's would have passed? I think adjusting to get to 32% raw pass ratio is like using a lifeboat that's full of holes. It may help, but you're probably going to drown anyway.

So how many fails to passes would it take for everyone to feel there was indeed an adjustment for time? 1, 5, 10, 25, 50? Just curious where everyone stands.

I feel like I'm missing something. What's this time adjustment people keep talking about?
