I practiced adapt level 5-6 exams for a few weeks before the exam and passed with a 7. I did get an earned level of 7. The qualitative questions were around a 6-7 while the quantitative were 4-5. Good luck if you take it in July or November!

I spent 1.5 months going through the CA manual, spent 9 days doing ADAPT  exams, got an EL of 6.5 and passed with an 8

I had an EL of \~7.5 on ADAPT and passed the exam with a 7. I would say it felt like a level 5-6 (closer to 6)

It was unexpectedly easy for me. I finished all the questions in 2 hours and get an hour for checking. The hour was not wasted because there were so many traps that I didn’t see at first attempt, so watch out for those! I only practiced ADAPT for 2 days to EL4 (but I practiced the hardest level possible) and get a 9 in the exam. Good luck!!

I took this multiple times, including in March. It was not harder in March in my opinion than it was the last time I took it. Not everyone takes the same exam though, remember that lol. So comparing sitting to sitting is kind of irrelevant unless the syllabus changes.

I had an EL of 5.5 and failed, so I’d shoot for a 6 EL.

I thought that P and FM were about a 3-4 EL when I took them. When I took March IFM I thought it was a 6+. Definitely much higher level according to my “eye test”.

For reference, the lowest previous pass rate for any IFM exam was 47.6. March 2022 was 42.0. There’s no doubt that it was a particularly challenging sitting.

I had an EL of ~7, though I felt it was unearned (in my opinion if you get a 90% on one practice exam at level 5 it shouldn't bump you up to a 7 immediately, I was consistently getting around a 60% on subsequent exams).

Passed with a 6. If I remember correctly, it was almost entirely quantitative and it was the first exam that I was unsure of the result when I hit the "submit" button. Obviously I did not pass by a wide margin.
