How did you find complexity level of FRM part 1 May 2013 exam ?

I found that compared to GARP practice exams, It was way too tough ... It may be due to Syllabus changes as well

Bionic question bank is really notch up and helped a lot in preparation.

chebyshev inequality
Pr(abs(X-u)>k*sigma)<1/k^2
Pr(abs(X-10)>2*5)<1/2^2
Pr(X-10>10)+Pr(X-10<-10)<0.25
2Pr(X-10<-10)<0.25 due to symmetrical , so Pr(X-10>10)=Pr(X-10<-10)
Pr(X<0)<0.125

i forgot to sign on question book front page..is it a big problem?..
i have signed on question book while didn't sign on answer sheet...
I dont know whether I have missed the signature or the signature is not required on answer sheet.
I afraid the GARP wont mark my answer sheet if signature is missed
