2018 Actual L3 Exam

I have seen the exam now as well. Two points: I cannot even recall ~30% of the questions + they have definitely edited the exam as I have looked for a certain question and couldnt find it. I still have that question 100% in my mind as I was going nuts in the exam on this particular one. But they removed it.

You’ve made it this far, and you know what it takes to pass. Don’t be fooled by false promises and unrealistic claims. Schweser’s CFA® study packages give you the proven study tools and expert instruction you need to finish the job.

Maybe they edited the equity questions because equity was redone in 2019, and they wanted the questions to be more relevant for current test taker?

I just e-mailed them and they got back to me within 3 minutes with the exam. Seems like the easiest way to do this…

My response took about an hour but I received a copy as well.  Reading through it brought back some rough memories of trying to muscle through that thing…  Glad it is behind me.  Good luck L3 candidates.

Pay close attention to the people who don't clap when you win.

Hi there anybody who received a copy - it would be much appreciated if someone wouldn’t mind sending a copy to my personal mail ((tomcrows@hotmail.com)) - I received a response that this information is property of CFA and don’t share with candidates/members/charterholders ?!

So … if I have this straight … you’re asking the Level III candidates here, who are bound by the Code and Standards, to violate the Standards by sending you the exam.

Hmmm.

Simplify the complicated side; don't complify the simplicated side.

Hi S2000, not sure why you read into my request that I was asking Level III candidates?

My request was referencing previous comments from MrNoFear, bazz etc. (who I believe, like me, sat and passed the exam last year) who advised they had contacted CFA Institute with the same request as mine, yet their request was fulfilled, whereas I was treated differently for some reason. So I was hoping to leverage the good favor that they received and using their good will to send this information to me. I don’t believe this would be in contravention of any standards, nor was it a request that Level III candidates violate the standards, and I take exception to your suggestion that I would be so blase about such a violation.

I believe you also received the information from the CFA Institute:

*****I e-mailed CFA Institute this morning and they e-mailed me the exam and guideline answers this afternoon.

I was particularly interested in the Fixed Income questions and was very happy with what I saw.*****

It would be much appreciated if you could forward same information to me. If you don’t want to, that’s fine. I’m just looking to review the exam for my own intellectual curiosity.

I just took the 2018 AM test for practice… wow what a cake walk compared to some other years exams.

Maybe all the questions have been changed and this isnt the real AM exam, but equity portion is like EOC questions lol. Simple.

No wonder they’re so easy… I just found on Mark Meldrum’s website:

The 2018 Essay Mock Exam is a mixture of 2018 Level III exam content and mock exam content.  Specifically, the questions pertaining to Equity, Private Wealth (Question 5), Fixed Income, and Asset Allocation are new and were not included on the 2018 Level III exam..”

  • Hi,  I am a registered CFA Level III candidate.  I can’t find old exams on the CFAI website.  Can someone explain how to find them of the CFAI website.  Thank you in advance. 

Many thanks for this
