Pass marks are released for CAS-only exams - but 'M' is not a CAS-only exam.

Based on digging up old threads on another forum . . .

In May 2006, the unofficial passmark was around 23-24 out of 40.
In November 2005, the unofficial passmark was 23 out of 40.
In May 2005, the unofficial passmark was 25 out of 40.

However, all of this may be negated after this November, since this is the last offering of SOA M as it exists now. There are multiple threads, I believe, that address the changes it will undergo.
