Are we required to memorize the exact wording and paragraphs of the Standards, or do we only need to understand it?

That is, do we have to know for example that action X is a violation against Standard IV-A1-c "quote........", or simply understand that action X violates the Standards.

Even I too want to know the answer for that question

I passed level I first attempt with >70% in ethics, and await response from level II.

I dont believe that it is that necessary to know the exact wording of, say, standard II-B. I think that it is sufficient, given some scenario, to detect whether a violation has taken place, and to identify verbally which standard that has been violated, i.e. whether it is about independence/objectivity, or misrepresentation, or whatever.

My impression is that you should first of all work carefully through the worked examples and the exercises in the notes. This will to a large extent make you able to smell whether something unethical has happened in a given scenario, and also to categorize in terms of the names of the standards, which one(s) that has (have) been violated. I belive that this would take you a part of the way through exam questions on ethics.
