Just to vent very last minute: this stupid restriction on excel scaling is causing me headaches. It is a stupid rule that makes zero sense when combining it with a 20 page restriction.
A lot of things did not make make sense with board report. For instance, CMA would not accept coiling binding, only Cerlox!

Time to switch gears to presentation mode! What board questions do you think they will ask?

If the practice board report was any indication, it will all be about risk mitigation...

I didn't think the questions were too bad.

At the end of the day we had been working on the case for over 3 months, there was no way the Board knew the case better than we did. That's the mentality we went in with.

The questions were not overly difficult, and the Board did not drill down on a certain area after asking an initial question on it

Reading this thread makes me wanna throw up...
People have dedicated years of work to earn their CMA, but then answers are then easily posted on the internet.

Don't see many CA's or CGA's posting up their answers for 'homework' on RFD...

Guju - A CMA, but really wondering about class of 2013

Anyone know when we can expect to get the results from our Board Report. I believe we just passed Week 5 this past Monday.

It'll have to be before October when convocation is. I can't recall why August seems to be floating around in my mind - perhaps because it's roughly 8 weeks from when people presented.

Is it 8 weeks from presentation date or 8 weeks from when the report was handed in, which would make it around August 3rd. We all presented at different dates, so I can't see why it would be 8 weeks from the date you presented, unless they give out the marks group by group rather than everyone at once

The board probably didn't drill down questions because there won't be enough time to get all the answers for the questions. They understand that the scope of the student's answers are within the case - without taking into consideration too much of the external factors and other issues ;)

Oh and there are lots of CMA's in this board, so whatever is being discussed over the internet has probably been looked at :)
