    Results are gonna all come out at the same time. That’s for sure. That’s why MAS is taking so long.

    You’re guessing or you know this?

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Not officially. Going off of what someone close to the committee implied. If you think of it, it makes sense too even though it puts the MAS folks in a more inconvenient position this time based on the timing. Results have historically been released at the same time. Other than that motivation to release everything together, there’s no reason MAS shouldn’t be finalized by now based on when the window was especially considering that results over the past few years have come out in 6 weeks rather than 8.</p>

    The results for MAS should never take longer than two weeks.  You don’t even run it through the scantron now.  It is really a question of what is the pass mark and how many answers to questions should they accept.  I don’t really get why the CAS has this thing that all exams should be released at once.

    While I respect how thorough the grading process is for 5-9, you could argue that it shouldn’t take more than 2 or 3 weeks. There are at least 5,000 practicing FCASs in North America and you’re telling me they couldn’t find at least two or three times the volunteers they’re scraping up now to help with this process. No one should have to grade more than a few papers if you think of it if they had enough volunteers.

    I believe each grader grades two questions with someone else.  And then they reconcile the grades between each person.

    I think the CAS prefers when one of the graders is also the question writer.  I don’t think that is always the case though.

    Yep, fully aware of that even though I thought it was one question each. Either way, I think it would be more efficient if they had more volunteers. That way each person wouldn’t be grading 500+ papers (for the same question), maybe they’d be doing 50 instead. One could argue thered be less consistency within the grading for each question but in today’s world there’s definitely inconsistency in the rigor of grading between questions (between different graders). I don’t think anyone can convince me that isn’t the case.

    Does anyone know when results will come out?

    I don’t think the CAS knows yet.  Which is probably why they haven’t said anything…

    I’m just beginning to realize how agonizing this must be for those who took MAS. If we have to wait another month, they would have waited for 3 months!

    They should just release a list of passing candidate numbers for MAS exams.

    It can’t take more than a day to upload to the individual profiles (assuming they have people working there). So I’m not sure they’d decide to release a list of candidate numbers instead. Come think of it, are there even any candidate numbers for TBE? I don’t recall having one.

    The reason everything is released at the same time is because they don’t have a way to release results just for MAS exams.

    Why does it feel like it’s been two months since I took the exam? 😀

    Also why do I feel like CAS is going to surprise us and release the grades within the next two weeks?

    Because you’re an optimist in denial :P?

    There’s technically no reason they shouldn’t be ready in two weeks. Word on the street is the graded papers have already been submitted by the graders. Should be two weeks tops unless they run into some unprecedented dilemma.
