I used to work in the financial industry. You don’t want to date a CFA. They’re picky, by the book, and sticklers for the rules. For them, the perfect situation is when the numbers add up. There’s no wiggle room for anything other than black and white. Chances are that this exam is bringing those quantitative qualities out in your boyfriend, and you’re not measuring up to the Impossible Yardstick of Girlfriend Perfection he’s got. That’s not your fault; it’s his. The other possibility is that he’s realizing this ain’t what he wants to do for the rest of his life but he’s feeling trapped. So he took it out on you. And that’s not fair either. Let this one go. Live well, be happy, and let him eat his decimal place of a heart out

CFA only ruins your life after you pass level 3 and realize there’s no benefit and you just wasted a ton of your life.
