They definitely seemed on the high end across the board but I feel like that is only fair especially for exams that are usually offered 2x a year but candidates only had one opportunity due to COVID-19.
In terms of what CAS is going to do on a test by test basis, it is anybody’s guess. I wouldn’t waste too much energy trying to figure out how hard/easy they are going to grade based on prior results. I would however anticipate an increase in length to account for CBT this time around.
I took Exam 5 written 2x and was very short on time but with CBT I had lots of extra time.
