  1. Even better! Wow.. a fail rate of 27% is absolutely unheard of for an exam like this. Not sure how this can continue and be sustainable..
  2. I'm certainly no expert in stats.. but my interpretation of the results seems to indicate that roughly 20% of test-takers are now failing based on this new scoring scale... Anyone with more knowledge on statistics, please feel free to correct!

More concerning however is that it was my second attempt at the LMCC2 exam (unable to pass in October 2018 as well). Furthermore, my score somehow dropped lower than the first attempt despite a modified approach, and an overall feeling that my performance was significantly improved the second time around.
