Probably more exams to grade because 7-9 were offered. Also, I think it is taking them longer to grade in Excel. Lastly, they used to have a 2 day meeting to regrade all the close grades and reconcile scores on questions between graders.
I believe that is not occurring now. So that is taking place across a longer period of time.May 11, 2021 at 5:39 pm in reply to: Spring 2021 Exam 7 #4160
The IQ questions in my opinion have to go. I think they are a very poor differentiator.April 12, 2021 at 1:38 pm in reply to: Fail Report Update #3722
They specifically mentioned they don’t intend to release that information.April 6, 2021 at 3:06 pm in reply to: Fail Report Update #3685
They are. CAS is a very “transparent” organization.April 5, 2021 at 4:56 pm in reply to: Fail Report Update #3671
I received mine. It was not helpful.February 24, 2021 at 8:05 pm in reply to: Fail Report Update #3268
I am not sure how they do that exactly, because questions on the test had multiple sections embedded in each other.February 24, 2021 at 8:05 pm in reply to: Fail Report Update #3267
This is pretty much what I expected.February 17, 2021 at 8:59 pm in reply to: Results Release Date #3233
A couple weeks is not a couple of months…February 17, 2021 at 8:36 pm in reply to: Results Release Date #3231
On goactuary someone posted that they contacted the CAS and the CAS implied it would be a couple weeks at least.February 16, 2021 at 1:48 am in reply to: Spring 2021 Exam 7 #3221
I would imagine that since the test is being offered just a few months after the previous test that the style will be the same.
The CAS probably had two exams already ready since exams were pushed off for like a year.February 14, 2021 at 2:35 am in reply to: Spring 2021 Exam 9 Thread #3208
I am not sure what you mean. Cummins cat paper has some memorization and some examples. Cummins and Goldfarb have some specific type of math questions they test, but also have general capital allocation logic.February 8, 2021 at 4:56 pm in reply to: Spring 2021 Exam 9 Thread #3157
I am not really burnt out. Although with taking tests over 13 years now, could have done it.
Well I hope my commentary helped.February 8, 2021 at 3:30 pm in reply to: Spring 2021 Exam 9 Thread #3153
I have studied over a 1000 hours. I am not a good test taker. I think after passing exam 7 (I had already passed 8), the year in between got me out of practice. Then waiting another 1.5 years to take it a second time didn’t bode well.
I am probably going to look up some calming techniques. Because I know I am close, I am just not thinking clearly and figuring out one of the few hard trick problems on the test.
They also are trying to combine the topics in weird ways. While I know all the details of the papers. They aren’t really asking details but weird combinations instead.February 8, 2021 at 3:17 pm in reply to: Spring 2021 Exam 9 Thread #3151
People definitely pass with just TIA or CC. CF didn’t exist beforehand.
If you are very good at puzzles and are naturally smart. You will have an advantage on this exam.February 8, 2021 at 3:15 pm in reply to: Spring 2021 Exam 9 Thread #3150
It depends on a person. I have read all the source at some point and a bunch of manuals. It hasn’t helped me. I have gotten 2 5’s over the last 2.5 years (since it has only been offered twice).
The questions are very tricky and have lots of puzzles.January 29, 2021 at 7:33 pm in reply to: Fall 2020 Exam 6U Unexpected Fail #2924
Try goactuary more people are on it and it allows that stuff.
