So no scratch….how do you work out problems? On the exam sheet?

yea exactly…where are we supposed to work out problems?

We are supposed to work them out in our brain. Because we are potential CFAs, we should be smarter than the rest. CFA exams are for the best of the best, not only we can work them out in our brain, we can also do quants without calculator.

Now, how many violations have I made? lol

Just joking, anyone soul who know please let us know.

troll.

1) you can do the rough work / calculations on the question sheet itself
2) yes you can erase and re-mark the answer

^ yes, the question sheets provide you an ample white space to work on the calculations, don’t worry about trivial things like these. Instead, worry more about how much material can you master.

Another query. Maybe it sounds silly, but exam takers allowed to use lavatories during the exam?

……………………. empty your bowels before you go

You can use the bathroom while you’re there but I’m pretty sure they don’t let anyone out of their seat during the last 30 minutes.

Read the exam policies and you should be fine.

It a classic risk/reward scenario. Coffee is a diuretic, too much will make you poop but too little will leave you still groggy.

What to do, what to do?
