The new exam must be more difficult since they have lowered the passing grade and have stated that they want the same level of difficulty, meaning the same level of passing grades. The questions are either harder, or the reduced time limit made a difference. Any other thoughts?
Have you seen the New Latest post on the new exam ?? There is no way to make an educated guess on the degree of difficulty of the exam. We'll have to wait till the first few people take the exam in October and share their experiences here.. For now, it is not worth worrying about it, instead you should be spending the same time and energy preparing for it!! By the way, PROPER NAMES ARE NOW REQUIRED!
