    How is everyone feeling about the exam?

    Not great. I’ve been reading over old exams today and the length of the answers is stressing me out. They don’t seem to be correlated to the number of points assigned to the question. Like some comments say “candidate only got full marks if they listed 4 points” and it’s confusing if a question is only worth 1 mark.

    It’s my first ever FSA exam so I’m trying not to give myself a hard time. Still trying to figure out how to study for this type of exam. I feel like I’m depending a lot on my work experience instead of the actual readings. I also don’t have a good memory so I’m trying to understand everything instead of memorizing it, but that’s not gonna matter if a lot of the questions are straight recall.

    I’m honestly just excited to go back to work on Friday. These last couple weeks have been no fun.

    I’m pretty worried. some practice exams go great, others are a bloodbath. Spring 2020 is brutal to look over. I just hope it more like the fall exams

    How do you think you guys did? I thought it was ok but had a few challenging questions.

    If I needed 30 points to pass that exam there’s no way I’m passing

    Nah I doubt you need 30 points to pass. I think usually the pass mark is ~65%, so 26 points or higher should be safe.

    Hey guys, I forgot to add my candidate ID to the file names when submitting. Do we know if that’s gonna be a big issue?

    I honestly thought that changing file names were optional so did not even pay attention to the file naming section… feeling so bad now.

    I messed up in the 4 point question for Q3…very harsh for an exam with 40 points only

    Have no clues on the calculation for Q1 (total 2 points)…. heard that both PAK and TIA manual does not cover

    if 30 is the passing score I only have 4 point buffer left…. impossible to pass….
