    You have to remember that the CAS operates in the best interest of the CAS and their committees. They’ll always go with the most expedient or convenient option that suits them. The students have to accept it. That’s the power of an oligopoly. Theres no recourse for bad decision-making or incompetence. They know they have something the students want and that’s why they get away with this behavior year in, year out. Its quite unfortunate if you ask me.

    I beg to differ. No FCAS is superior to me as a person. Alot of them suck at their jobs and are just good test takers. From my experience, others are jerks. Dont let them make you feel inferior.

    In what way do they suck at their jobs. Lots of mistakes? Bad time management?

    I may be a cynic, but to be bad you have to assume it’s not intentional and/or they care about consequences.

    To Olmstead: all I’m saying is that becoming an FCAS doesn’t make you some superior being.

    To Tigger: regardless, the only consequences are for the students. There’s never any for the CAS board, committees etc.. That was my main point.

    I do agree, it would be nice if Exam 7 and 9 are also offered in Fall 2021. given Spring 2020 was entirely skipped.

    But then more people would have FCAS. The CAS can’t allow that to happen!

    I heard the SOA is releasing their results the last week in February. I guess the CAS isn’t lagging behind from an industry perspective. Either way, still not sure why results couldn’t have been ready next week.

    The reason that I heard is because the new format is taking longer to grade.  The only reasonable conclusion I can come out of it, is that they are finding a lot of reference errors, where it is clear what the person intended.  This might actually be a good thing because the CAS said before they would not guess what people intended.  But maybe they are finding that they do need to do a better job grading.

    Yeah… it sucks 7 and 9 isn’t offered in October. Since 8 had an extra sitting it would have been nice if they offered 7 and 9 an extra sitting as well.

    Dumb question: is there a way to edit your post?

    You can edit but I’ve found that after you edit twice, it disables your ability to edit again. I really miss everything about the old Outpost! No idea why they did away with it.

    I was just watching the recording of the Fall Meeting recognition ceremony. They had Chuck Norris and Daymond John (from Shark Tank) give a shoutout to the new designees. That was pretty cool.

    The syllabus hasn’t changed so it shouldn’t matter.
