So the passing score has increased to 192 I believe- the last change was in 2006 to 186. Does this mean across the board increase in difficulty? What kind of changes can we expect?

No changes. the difficulty will be the same. the curve will be the same. the threshold for passing is the only thing that will be different (with this change, anyway)

Yea as soon as I posted it I realized that. If systematic changes were to take place then the score to pass wouldn't need to change.

this might be the year that the average breaks 230 which is kinda scary :(

why is this scary? I assume the standardization won't change as much- I mean a 230 is percentile based....if they weren't going to adjust percentiles then changing the minimum pass score makes no sense...
