can anyone advise as to the structure of the L1 exam? I know its split into two halves but which topics will be tested in the first and which in the second or is that not known?

I think that all sections will be in both halves of the exam...

Traditionally on Level I and II exams, all topics are covered in the morning session and all topics are covered again (with different questions) in the afternoon session. On the Level III exam, some topics are covered in the morning session only and other topics are covered in the afternoon session only.
