Total score: 54%


Ethics 80%
Quants 53%
Econ: 50%
FRA: 45%
Corp: 35%
Portfolio: 75%
Fixed Income: 54%
Equity: 50%
Derivatives: 50%
Alt Inv 50%

I am quite shocked by this, my schweser qbank scores were all above 70%. However my AnalystNotes mock exam 1 and 2 were close to 50% which were similar to the real CFAI mock exam's.

I did the exam in timed conditions and found the second part very difficult to keep my mind focuses. I also found there where ALOT less calculations to make compared to qualitative questions.

The main thing i want to know is how in trouble am I, is this recoverable and do I have enough time? I heard Schweser mock exams were much easier than the real one, is that so?

Any advice here on out would be much appreciated.

The consensus seems to be that usually everyone does quite terribly on their first mock. I think it's important to not panic. There's no going back now, so no sense in wondering whether or not it's recoverable. Just keep putting work in, do plenty more mocks, and do the best you can do.

I am using your study notes and I know of at least 5 other friends of mine who used it and passed the exam last Dec. Keep up your great work!
