Here's for hoping all of the results are released by ten so I don't spend the entire day refreshing a page.

To those who mentioned the pass rate was around 75%: is that the rate for first-time takers? If so, I'm absolutely shitting myself this morning.

That is a guestimate at best of the overall passage rate using the percentile chart. My guess is the real passage rate is between 75% to 70% overall. We will know soon enough.

OK, so you're saying it's the overall pass rate, not the rate for first-time takers?

Yes, the percentile chart is not broken down by test takers. So first-timers' is probably higher.

Small consolation, but at least I'm still on my first pair of boxers for the day. Thanks!
