Less than 24 hours to go... who's freaking out?

OMG, I’m freaking out. Is anyone else on the same boat? I personally think I’ve failed but I’m trying not to lose hope…(my wish now will be to witness a miracle tomorrow).

I really cannot stand the thought of retaking these exams…the second half of last year was depressing enough (except for the last month of course). :-(

You’re ready to take on the CFA® Program, so stop guessing where you should begin. You give us your study dates, we’ll give you the study plan. Our adaptive activity feed breaks down your 300 hours into bite-sized weekly tasks that fit into your life.

I just got out of our weekly update meeting at work, and I couldn’t focus on anything that was being said. I think I’m on the borderline. If I make it, I’ll be overjoyed. If I don’t, I’ll have to re-consider continuing.

But as of now, I’m freaking out!!!! arghghgh

I am little worried, but I never have confidence in anything anyways. I am already thinking about how i am going to attack Level I for the second time. I would gladly welcome trying to do Level II in 4 months!

I’m preparing my retaking strategy as well. I put myself at borderline, ethics being my main concern. But seriuosly, I’ve been patient with the waiting until now, but I just want my results at this point. Sick of waiting.

If I fail, I don’t think I would ever want to use Stalla again.

For my retake (or CFA level II- I reckon this is highly unlikely) I am quite tempted to use Schweser. Which books did you use as study materials for level I?

I wish I would have used Stalla or Schweser… I focused on the CFAI text, which involved too much reading… I heard lots of good things about the Schweser program, which I will more than likely use if I end up passing

I’m so scared…literally..if i fail..theres a lot to lose but if i pass..theres not much to do..except start thinking about level 2..

Man..at this time tommorrow I hope i’m out treating my friends…

i am on the same boat … sitting next to you i guess. just had my weekly meeting, went in with a pad that’s blank and came out w. it blank.

all i was thinking was tomorrow this time, i’d know the result.

What’s done is done, enjoy your’re last day!

I just signed in to make sure I rememered my password and tried to sign up for LII, just to see, and got this message. I guess there’s no peeking…

“Enrollment/registration access will be closed for maintenance from 9:00 a.m. ET on Monday, 21 January until 9:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday, 23 January. “

Let’s hope we both pass :)

Don’t panic. Rumor is that 90% of the people in AF will pass.

Let’s hope we all pass!:)

I just want this all to be over. Ethics I destroyed and fell i did reasonably well with everything else but ECO…which i pray had a lot of “c” answers. Anyway, if I fail, i’ll probably be really depressed and miserable…feel completely inadequate and horrible and terrible. then after about a week of moping around i’ll get really pissed off and start studying again…so we’ll see, right. However, I think I did pass, and since the G-Men are going to the superbowl, then I should be in good shape. That is correct…I am using the Giants’ victories as a metaphor to my performance.

Bye the way, don’t you think the website is going to get overloaded at 9AM when the thousands and thousands of people who took the test all log-on at the same time?

I’m not worried at all cuz i don’t need the website to tell me that I failed…

I am actually relaxed…strange. I tink I am borderline but really not stressed, I think I have finally realized that at this point, there is nothing I can do about it.

Yeh , makes sense, and I’m not really “worried” just interested to find out the result, what I feel is the same kind of feeling when you had a bet on a game , and then you open the sports page to find out who won…

“whatbeastsdo” - I just want this all to be over. Ethics I destroyed and fell i did reasonably well with everything else but ECO…which i pray had a lot of “c” answers. Anyway, if I fail, i’ll probably be really depressed and miserable…feel completely inadequate and horrible and terrible. then after about a week of moping around i’ll get really pissed off and start studying again…so we’ll see, right.

i completely concur with you….. if i flunk, i’d be really depressed myself… but yea … thats wut beasts don’t do … sulk around …. so be prepared and face it and do whatever it takes for the june session whichever level it may be …. i hope its II … for me and u and for everyone … and I’m going home for a week or so on the 24th .. Hope the result add on to the excitement of going home …… another 20 hours to go
In spite of saying all this, i know i’d be down and out if i don’t clear. Expecting to clear … and everyone knows what happens when expectations are not met..

I’m not really freaking out, since I have no control over the results at this point. When I took the test, I felt very good about the morning session, and pretty good about the afternoon session. I figured I nailed enough questions, and combined with getting some questions I was borderline on correct, I would have enough correct responses for a passing score. But, I came to realize a few of the questions I was certain I nailed contained information I sped past during the exam, forcing me to arrive at the “ha ha, CFAI tricked you!” answer. If I assume I suffered the same fate on other questions, I probably missed too many.

With that said, if I do fail, I know why: going through the questions too quickly and skipping over important information. Honestly, some of the questions seemed too easy, and that concerns me. I don’t think I should have had 30+ minutes free at the end of each session.

If I were to bet on it, I’d put my money on a failing score. But, less than 24 hours will tell. Good luck to all of you. If you didn’t pass, don’t get discouraged. Get right back on it.

I just finished school, and if i find out i passed the test tomorrow it’s gonna be like winning the lottery. I can quit my crappy job as a waiter in a restaurant, and tell my boss to $#@% off. It will be so great. Failing will be equally as miserable though.

i

I used to be a waiter…it was a lot of fun. my only regret was i had a girlfriend the whole time and didn’t bang any of the cute waitresses that worked there. Looking back, now 4 years later, most of them ‘hit the wall’, either still work there or have horrible jobs, and i’m marrying my girlfriend. Don’t let anyone tell you “you make more money waiting tables than you do getting an office job?”…b/c that’s bull

yeah good to know. hopefully I can get an office job soon.

I’m not freaking out. Not much we can do about it now. But I am not sleeping well, and will probably not until tomorrow night, pass or fail.

I know I killed Ethics & quant. Just destroyed those sections. So I feel like my ethics score may be good enough to push me into the pass category if I was boderline everywhere else. We’ll find out soon.

So yee who ‘killed ethics’ (i also feel i did quite well there as well), can a CFA (who passed all the tests, has the experience, paid the fee, signed the form, etc.) put “CFA” next to his or her name on LETTERHEAD?

Not the letterhead again…I just stopped being pissed about that last week!

Haha. I had forgotten about that. Thanks a lot.

So what is the answer to the letterhead one? that’s one topic i wasn’t sure about…i said ‘no’…is that correct?

The handbook states that an individual may use “CFA” next to his or her name on letterhead, but a company cannot. In any case, you shouldn’t be refering to this person as “a CFA”!

the top of page 141 of the Standards says that (153 of 184) of the handbook…looks like i got that one wrong…as like 10 strands of hair fall off the back of my head
