I have the option to edit for like 5 mins or so, after that the option disappears. Does the option to edit stay for you?January 18, 2021 at 11:21 pm #2300
GoActuary? Never heard of it. I’ll take a look.January 18, 2021 at 11:35 pm #2302
To Red’s point: I was flying in Excel but that is the only environment I practiced in. I didn’t see how we were supposed to practice in the test environment based on what we had to work with. And my experience was similar when I went into the exam. I was a bit surprised about some of the limitations and those certainly cost me alot of time.January 18, 2021 at 11:40 pm #2303ActuarialedParticipant
i got my money that the CAS will just fail everyone. That is everyone who scores under 72%January 18, 2021 at 11:50 pm #2304Tigger0209Participant
You are right. Edit option disappears after a while.January 19, 2021 at 12:05 am #2306ActuarialedParticipant
yes we all miss the old AOJanuary 19, 2021 at 12:25 am #2309
We will never know.January 19, 2021 at 12:30 am #2311
- I practiced in Pearson environment for a few weeks. I was aware of almost all the limitations. Instead of doing problems in Excel, I would just open the Pearson testing environment up and practice there. I finished exam 9 with 45 minutes left. For me the extra time didn’t help because well quite frankly the test was extremely hard. There were four or five questions that probably will make it or break it.
I emailed the CAS about all the issues in the environment and they didn’t tell people. They were aware of them. For example, typing an incorrect formula makes the cell revert back to what was in it previously. So if it was empty it remains empty. If it had a different value or formula it goes back to that one.January 19, 2021 at 1:04 am #2312
Wow. Sounds like you have a great chance. I left 3 blanks for 9 cause I ran out of time. Guess I need to practice smarter next time. The only thing I have going for me is that I felt really good about the IQ.January 19, 2021 at 1:30 am #2314
I’m also not sure how you said you finished 45 mins early and it didn’t matter. Regardless of how hard the test was, you had an answer for everything. To me, that is a huge advantage.January 19, 2021 at 2:29 am #2315Tigger0209Participant
With 45 min to spare, did you write formulas or leave it to markers to check your cell references. I debated just using cell references, but played it safe by writing all formulas, which was a slow process for me.January 19, 2021 at 3:55 am #2321
I spent about 40-45 minutes on IQ in beginning and about another 10 at the end. I did not feel good about it. I didn’t feel bad about it. If I fail it will be most likely because of it and a few other questions…January 19, 2021 at 3:56 am #2322
I had lots of cell references and def could have had mistakes there… Hence the other issue. I would not be surprised with my second five.January 19, 2021 at 3:59 am #2324
I don’t really think I did much to differentiate myself besides for finishing the test. There were a couple of questions I wrote stuff down but who knows if I will get any credit for it. I had enough time to do them though.January 19, 2021 at 7:34 am #2328
Man you’re so pessimistic which surprises me given that you left nothing blank. You also spent almost an hour on the IQ. Hard to see why you’re expecting a 5. Sounds like you’re trying to create a coping mechanism for the worst case scenario.January 19, 2021 at 11:25 am #2332
I have felt this way before and both passed and failed. While I spent close to an hour on the IQ I didn’t feel that good about it. And I can see not doing well on it as a likely possibility.
