The most likely tested topic is calculating pension PBO in GAAP and in IFRS.

Rumor has it that calculating option prices using BSM will also be in the exam laugh

It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

No. I think there’s almost no chance of Banks or Insurance being tested on the AM. I’ve been seeing a lot of gambler’s fallacy floating around here regarding that topic. I think it’s clear at this point that they prefer not to test these institutions in the AM. They COULD be tested this year, but I still don’t think there’s a significant chance of it happening, and prep time is best used on pensions/foundations/endowments

Nope

Not much to know with either of them so dont sweat it
