|Author||Topic: Level 1 exam easy!|
What did you all think about the Level 1 exam? I thought Analyst Notes mock exams were much harder. There were only a handful of questions on each exam that were a bit tricky and the CFA mock exam was very similar to the real thing. I am only concerned that if everyone agrees that it wasnt that tough, will the passing mark be set higher? Also I imagine that having only 3 responses as opposed to 4 adds to it being easier. To be honest, there were some questions that were so straight forward I couldnt believe they were on it, especially given the supposedly mythical number of only 35% passing Level 1. Can anyone compare this to Level 1 in Dec? Same difficulty? On a final note, what a slap in the face it will be if they fail me!!! :-))
|I had no idea that the exam format was switching to 3 answers from 4. The only explanation I've heard is that since a higher number of foreigners has been taking the test they needed to make it somewhat easier for them to read and translate all the English.
I suppose it could make the test easier but it also makes it more difficult to get in the right part of the curve.
I took L1 in December and don't remember near as many straightforward questions, so there was definitely a change in the way the test is administered. I thought the ethics questions were actually a little tougher than the questions in the curriculum material.
|Totally agree. The mock exam was so much close to real thing. but still I have a weird feeling that my performance wasn't good enough. we'll see :)|
|The exam was good enough, in that there were quite a lot of direct questions. But I agree with AkuK. One always has a weird feeling. I dont want to be entirely confident that I have got through, since no one knows which way the curve will go!!|
|Hi, I have just ordered the analyst pro version for the December level 1 exam. Does anyone know how many pages is the ebook. What was your study strategy? Did you study online, or did you print the notes, how many pages? Please help...
|I think I would give one advice to everyone. Go through all the materials and expect question from everywhere. The original exam is not quantitative at all, but its covers almost everything.|
|may someone ssist me with L1 study materils?|
|Hi, I have a study plan for CFA Level 2.
