      The 6 week mark for MAS-1 and MAS-2 is June 14th if I’m not mistaken as the window went until May 3rd.

       

      No clue when they plan on releasing results but it looks they are opening Fall 2021 registration on June 15th. You would hope they actually release results prior to that but that seems unlikely  for any exams other than MAS-1 and MAS-2 since those would only be around 5 weeks out. I know the process is certainly quicker as you would think they can get the exams immediately to graders  without the need to mail them and then have them scanned in as they did with paper and pencil.

        I haven’t seen anything reporting the pass mark. I also haven’t seen anything saying why that is the case so add that on to the wonderful CAS transparency practices.

          The CAS is about as transparent as the window tint I had on one of my old cars. You know, the same car that the police would regularly pull me over in because of the tint…

            Looks like we just got the update…

             

            Dear Candidates,

            We are following up on an email sent to you in late February about the development of a new fail analysis report that we expected to release via the “My Exams” section of your online profile in mid-March. We understand that candidates are eager to receive the report for its aid in preparing for their next exam, and we sincerely apologize for the delay.

             

            Unfortunately, the development of the electronic version of the report is taking longer than expected, and the new targeted release date is mid-April. We know that receiving these reports is important to candidates, so we will be sending an official hard-copy version in the mail. The reports will be mailed out early next week.

             

            Candidates will be notified as soon as this report is available online. The report will be accessible in the “My Exams” section of candidates’ online CAS profiles. Again, we apologize for the delay in providing this information.

             

            Sincerely,

             

            CAS Office

             

            This is an absolute fucking joke.

            “We understand that candidates are eager to receive the report for its aid in preparing for their next exam.” A lot of help it will be in “Mid-April” when there are only 2-3 weeks left before the spring exams. Let’s be honest though, “Mid-April” will no doubt turn into May 10th anyways when it will be literally no help at all. Can’t wait to hear the excuses on why the snail mail doesn’t actually make it to us either. Still trying to understand how they are able to do snail mail “early next week” but can’t get them on the website until “Mid-April” either. Also stands to make you wonder how long the ability to produce the “hard-copy version” has been available to them as well. I honestly just don’t get why they couldn’t be up front and honest in telling us that we won’t be getting fail reports for the Fall 2020 sittings.

            Anyone else thinking the plan was probably to punt these so far down the line that no one had a hope of making a valid protest on the Fall 2020 sitting unless it was for obvious technical difficulties during the exam?

                I’m sure the CAS doesn’t exclusively target birthday dinners. I’m sure there are plenty of other events you could probably get set up that they would decide to release your results for. Maybe you could be the maid/matron of honor or best man for a friend’s impromptu wedding that is suddenly scheduled for Friday. I bet we could come up with a pretty exhaustive list on here. Once we get those events figured out we’ll have them releasing exam results within a week of everyone taking the exams!

                  Finally agreed to have my girlfriend’s brother and his girlfriend over to celebrate the two ladies’ recent birthdays so naturally the CAS picks the exact day of those plans to drop my exam results soon after the plans are confirmed. The night is about them so I either, hopefully, have to keep amazing news to myself so the focus stays on the ladies or I have to wallow in silent misery while putting on the happiest face I can muster. The joys of exam result release day.

                  In hindsight I clearly should have agreed to do this dinner last week so everyone taking 6U could have had results a week earlier given the CAS clearly was waiting for me to have these plans set in stone so they could pick that day to release results. Sorry to all the other 6U takers out there, had a I realized I would have tried to book this dinner for a month ago.

                  All joking aside though, if you asked me when I started taking exams what I thought the worst part was going to be I never would have expected my answer to be “waiting for results to be released.” Best of luck to everyone getting results tomorrow suffering through these last 20 hours or so before results come out. For the Exam 7 and 9 takers hoping for you to get notified of results dropping Friday.
