Hi there, I would like to ask you guys a question, I am currently in my final year of doing my Bachelors in finance. with three courses a semester (6 hours a week) would it be possible for me to also study for my level 1 till December 2015? How hard is it to do so.

Forgot to mention that I also have a job.

I am not an expert though I could throw up a suggestion. It is great that you have a finance background, with that in mind I think an extra 5 hours if possible to squeeze in along with your busy schedule could be a feasible target of December 2014.

Just got my MSc Finance and Investment. Just thinking of going for CFA how are my chances given there is no passmark, and also will be writing from Africa - someone told me there is a restriction as to how man African candidates should pass. Is it true?

hi Almarri,

I'm also doing my final sem of finance at uni with a job and doing my first level cfa. Have you picked up the cfa?

Mukaranga. I have a self taught finance and investment background and when I took the June 2015 exam I missed passing by 1 percentage point. With your previous history you will likely be successful.
What you have heard about CFA needing to reach a certain number of african males is completely false. They simply take the top x% of scores and that's it.
