Congrats, what were yo studying strategies

Thank you!
I made a plan to get through all of the Kaplan material by Halloween, taking a couple days to do review questions after each section and then a couple days after that to do review questions on all previous sections I had covered. I didn’t touch the CFAI material. I did ethics last, and did a ton of questions on it and read the answer explanations for every ethics question, even the ones I got right, which made that section quite easy. All of November and the first week of December I spent doing practice questions, mock exams, and then spot review on my worst sections, including Mark Meldrum videos.
If I could do one thing differently, I would have done practice questions after each reading, not just each section. Also would have started a little earlier (mid September wasn’t ideal).
I am not taking level 2 until June 2021 I have decided. I have no relevant work experience yet anyway, so no need to rush it IMO.

Nice! You killed it! Congrats!

good result. Do you plan to register for level 2?

I am confused..If someone can guide me which material should I refer to clear the level 2  then Yes  I will register..But reading curriculum books only in 4 months is tough with full time job..Need advise from experts..

Amazing scores! Congrats

Thanks RoadToPassingCFA and congrats to you too.

Passed.

Corp: 70%

Equity: Above 70%

FI: 50-70%

FRA: 50-70%

Alts & Devs: Above 90%

Ethics: 90%

Econ: Above 70%

PM: 90%

Quant: Above 70%

But 90% is really just the 90 percentile line.  It’s different than the 50% and 70% lines.

The entire grading report is confusing for no reason.  Why not just give a score for each section?

Nothing above 70 is a rough report.  Do you think you could identify how you can improve your prep?  If so, you have nothing to lose but time and money.

This is what my question is. How can I improve?
