Advice Regarding Level 2

I am on the fence about taking level 2 in September.  I have the FRM 2017 books and want to take FRM level 1 this year before the curriculum change next year so that would mean that I would delay taking CAIA Level 2 until next March.   My question for those who have taken CAIA level 2 is how important is it to remember and retain level 1 info in order to do well on level 2?  By not taking both CAIA tests back to back, am I putting myself at a disadvantage?

I took L2 last month.  For the most part, I think L1 and L2 are different enough that you’d probably be okay deferring L2 until next March.  Of course, a lot of it depends also on how well you did at L1.

I would probably place higher priority on doing your FRM L1 before the curriculum changes.

Thanks for the reply. I definitely appreciate the feedback.  I will wait until March to finish CAIA.  On to FRM level 1 :)

You’re welcome.  Good luck with the FRM!
