|Author||Topic: 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.
|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.
|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.|
