    Go to this website:

    https://home.pearsonvue.com/Clients/Casualty-Actuarial-Society-(CAS).aspx

    At the bottom of the page, you’ll find: “SAMPLE SPREADSHEET”. Test your formulas in there to see if you can use it in the exam.

    Hope this helps.

    Does anyone know if we will be asked to make graphs in the exam? Asking because I don’t see any way you could do it in the pearsonvue spreadsheets environment. E.g. Quantile Plot etc.

    I didn’t post in any community in LinkedIn. I just wrote a post and people came across it through their network.

    Thanks Olmstead. Relieved to be honest to be on the other side of this situation.

    That was me. And I shared here the response CAS gave me. They said they’ve let the Exam Chair know about my situation. I used the grievance form right after I came home from the exam. I passed the exam so I don’t know whether they adjusted anything or not. If I had failed, I would have been able to look at the questions I missed and see whether they gave me points for my answers in the grievance form or they didn’t.

    Because in the grievance form, I explained them my situation, provided the PEARSONVUE case number and also mentioned the questions I missed and what I wanted to write in those. I felt good (not exceptional) for the other questions I did in the exam. I believe I did enough to pass.

    My interpretation to this is that they might have checked the exam without considering the missed questions. If I passed, then they will probably ignore looking at my grievance form. If I failed, then probably they would have looked at the questions I missed and then decide whether to adjust my grading in anyway or not.

    The questions I missed were not the calculation ones (as those were the ones I did in the beginning). I left those ‘list items’ type of questions at the end, which is what I missed. And I believe I missed 3 of those questions.

    Hope this helps anyone who might face some difficulty in the future. I really hope no one goes through this torture but in case they do, they know what I did.

    Yeah..that’s what’s been showing since 8am Saturday EST. Prior to that I was able to see my result for 6c at 2am. May be now they are only showing the results to those who were not able to see it on Friday. LOL

    Yes I was able to see my grade at 2am and then at 8am it disappeared. But I was able to download my grade before it disappeared. Now I see nothing. Lol.

    Update: it’s 8:20 am and when I checked my profile again, I don’t see anything under the “acknowledgment” or “official grade” report. Like nothing! But I’ve downloaded my report from earlier today.

    I just checked my profile on casact.org. When I clicked on exam, my grade was there under the exam heading.
