2019 CFA official mock exam

How many of you guys have done 19 mock? Just finished the AM part, it was much harder than I expected and much hard than 18 mock. I literally scored a little less than 30 /60. Anybody can share your experience with 19 mock?

No. Mocks will still have the old format of all Item sets being 6 questions only

Taken Today

Scored: AM 70%, PM 78%

AM 75% and PM 70%. But I must admit that i had many questions where i guessed the right answer.. I found them very challenging.

Which one is this: mock exam A or B?

-P

Let’s talk about Mock A which is also available on printed version.  

If you are referring to Mock A (printed available) morning exam, yes it is by far the hardest CFAI mock I have taken compared with 2018, 2019 Mock B and older versions.

I have done mock a am part only. It wa very hard. I scored only 67%. Very disappointed. 

I got 72 on it but felt very unsure on a lot of question. Def the hardest item set mock I’ve seen. 

Yea, they were tough. Morning 63.3% and afternoon 75%. Hope the actual exam isn’t so tricky.

Hi all, anyone else got ‘shut of’ after 3 hours online on the website portal?? I was brutally forced to submit my answers, I just wanted to take more time, and I understand under exam conditions you need to finish within 3hours.. but this is not cool. :( How do I download the pdf exam now for AM? I guess I need to reset my answers? horrible… 

Mock A (printable) – 66% (AM) and 65% (PM)

Mock B (online) – 60% (AM) and 58% (PM)

did anyone else get smoked on mock b? total confidence killer. i had been scoring in low 70s on other mocks. 

I just finished both official mock exams and I am starting to get a bit worried…

Mock A: 73% AM and 73% PM

Mock B: 70% AM and 65% PM

Overall, I am very unhappy with Kaplan - I got much higher scores overall in their tests and relative to my peers.

On official CFAI website I am 76% correct on tests, 70% correct on mocks, which makes me better than 76% of other candidates. This should suffice?

are you talking about level 1 or level 2 CFA EXAM?, cause If is for level 2, your scores are very good, anyway for level 1 are good scores, congrats 

Yes I took Mock B today and got 80% on AM, but 68% on PM which was very hard. I felt the questions were very obscure on the PM; for example equity had much about the EEM “excess earning method” which was not shown in topic tests at all. The question asking to calculate the lowest breakeven on a bear spread was totally unfair, as it didn’t even tell whether to use a call or put. I’m saving the printable Mock A for last.

Everyone will feel differently about this, so take it with a grain of salt, but I felt that CFAI Mock A was more difficult than Mock B. I only bring it up to you so that you don’t take Mock A too close to test day and have it hurt your confidence. I’d try to take it today or tomorrow if I was you.  

I’m also averaging around 70-low 70s% on mocks like you, and as a retaker who was pretty close last year, my Mock scores this year are considerably higher. So I’m hoping that means we have enough in the tank to clear.
