Feeling confident ??

Hi All, 

I see many people stating that the actual CFA exam is easier than the Mocks, I’ve been scoring in the 60’s should I be worried or keep on grinding? any suggestions would help. Thanks

I would not worry, keep grinding the mocks and reviewing mistakes. Identify topics that you are weak in and focus on them. It would actually be great if the real thing is easier than mocks. There seem to be consensus that this is the case. I have been doing really good on mocks. I do not want to be overconfident because you never know what can happen on exam day. 

Keep grinding. 60% range is not out of the question for passing and you have over two weeks. Keep practicing and focus on your weaker areas.

Don't forget to carry the one.

Keep grinding. I was in a worse position than you, and I passed. At this point in November, I was seriously considering not bothering to take the exam. Stay calm, work hard, and you’ll pass.  

At 60% with 2 weeks to go, I’d say you’re 50/50 odds. Get that closer to 70% and you’ll have much more comfortable time.
