AuthorTopic: December Level I & June Level II and III Path

Hi all, looking for some opinions based on feedback I have had from colleagues in work, as well a tuition provider. I am planning to sit Level I in December 2020, followed by Level II the following June.

Out of 20 CFA’s I work with, only 1 followed this approach, with the rest opting for consecutive June sittings. A reputed tuition provider also strongly advised against it. I can’t sit the June 2020 session due the family reasons, hence I want to take this approach.

Has anyone here done the December - June - June route before? If so, did you feel you were under a lot more pressure compared to if you had only taken the exams in June each time?

Thanks in advance.

a friend of mine did that. he passed L1 in dec and L2 in june and L3 the following june. All done with 3 exams in 1.5 years. He never paid the fees so he never used the letters haha.

he's a bright guy. bright as in very good undergrad and great test taker with phenomenal memory.

I did (and passed) the December 2016, June 2017, and June 2018 L1,2, and 3 sequence. I know in the recent passing cohort of L3 in June 2019, there are several active people on AF that also started in December 2017.

Admittedly, the period from ~August 2016 through June 2017 was a lot of work. It felt like I studied for the exams around the clock.

If you're committed to succeeding and can translate that into a great work ethic, it is 100% doable.

Best of luck!
