Topic Tests Won't All Have 6 Problems Anymore?!?!?!?

Anyone else see the email this morning from the CFA stating problem sets may have more or less than 6 problems each?  The total number of MC questions will be the same.  It’s a little bit of a curve ball but I wish they had decided this earlier so prep providers could have made the right kind of practice exams.  Also, I think all of the CFAI topic tests have 6 questions too, which isn’t the right preparation.

I think this is a way for the CFA to squeeze in more topics rather than have one off questions within other vignettes.  Thoughts?

How much granularity in AM answers
