Default Anyone write STEP 1 on AUG 4TH 2015?

How did you find the exam? in terms of difficulty?

is it true that the curve will be based on all the students that wrote on the same day?

Please, any input is appreciated!

Thank you

Hi I read your posts and wanted to leave you some feedback. I didn't take my exam aug 4 but I did shortly before you.
How did u find the exam ? Did u remember how many you got wrong etc ?
I was told experimental qs were 10 to 20 % but no one knows accurate info on scoring for sure. The curve is forgiving but I'm not sure how it will work for this new exam.

Feeling horrible apparently u need 60 -70% of the exam correct to pass. I don't know is this is reliable or not but after counting really easy qs I got wrong I am so worried!

Thing is the exam was not too bad but I had an issue with timing and rushed the last few qs of almost each block. I had to guess some without even reading it. Never had a problem wit timing in the past so I guess it was the pressure of the exam.
