Advice for first time failer.
For those who have failed this (or any other CFA exam), do you have any advice for a first time failer?
I have never really ‘failed’ any exam I put this much time/effort into. I was averaging 70%’s on the practice exams but walked out of there with the worst feeling in the world. I could only count 19 out of 60 questions on the PM section I was sure I got right. So I failed.
I am really having a hard time dealing with it. I’ve never had to endure this kind of total failure - where my efforts count for 0 at the end of the day. I think coming on here and seeing all the people who were like - “oh yeah I wasn’t surprised, seemed pretty fair, think I did well” is making it worse.
How do you cope with this kind of failure? What can you do to get your mind off the fact that you just wasted hundreds of hours of your life for no tangible result?
