After seeing this exam FM, I am shaken in my belief that 70% score passes.
While this may have been the case historically, this exam was so unbelievably
easy, I actually expect the scoring scheme for FM to be:
25 correct = 10
24 correct = 9
23 correct = 8
22 correct = 7
21 correct = 6
That's just my thinking. We'll see. I am amazed. Just as May 2000 exams may have been the hardest ever, this May 2005 exam FM may have been the easiest one ever given. Just my opinion.

I was also disappointed that the exam was made to be much easier than prior exams but a passed exam is a passed exam. I have 24 right and still think the one question I got wrong is ambiguous. In hindsight, I overstudied.

Did the SOA change how they give scores? It used to be 100-110% of the minimum score was a 6, 110-120% was a 7, and so on. That would mean if 21 is the minimum pass, 21 and 22 would be 6; 23 and 24 would be 7, etc.

I think that the expected scores are just high. If they use the method they usually use, there could be no possible score of 10.

yeah i also guess so... i only scored 20, and that really puts me into deep trouble, i thought i had a 23, but came up with some stupid mistakes and carelessness.. too bad...

I agree.

Hey, Dr. O, I think the SOA allows the possibility that a 10 may be impossible.

Yes, you are right. We'll see how this turns out. But I never had so many of my students telling me they got a l l questions. I guess I was very scare the exam was going to be very hard and was going nuts to make them overstudy. On the other hand, I am a firm believer in overstudying.
