AuthorTopic: 45 days to go and I just started studying

Hi fellow candidates,

I am re-sitting for the Level I exam in Dec '18, having failed the exam in June with a band 6. However, I have only just started studying for the exam a few days ago.

With 45 days left to the exam day, what do you guys suggest I should do for my study plan? Any ideas? I plan to try and finish studying everything by November 1st and then do as much practice questions as possible.

When I failed in June, I did not do much practice questions and barely finished reading the materials (only started to study 3 weeks before exam). I hope I can finish reading this time around.

You could try completing two readings every day (74 readings / 2 = 37 days) which leaves 8 days for mock exams and taking practice tests.

Alternatively, try skipping the material altogether and just read the end-of-chapter summaries/study notes here.

Good luck

Since you have taken the exam before (with a pretty OK score of 60%), I think should spend more efforts concentrating on mock exams of analystnotes'.

If you have notes, review those and just keep doing practice questions. In 4 weeks you should be able to finish all of practice questions.

Good luck!

Emphasize the area you scored lowest on your first attempt. Interestingly the highest correlation between candidates who don't pass the exam as a whole is with those who don't pass Quantitative Methods even though it has equal weighting to Equity and I think Debt.
