Has the 2019 L3 exam been posted?

Does anyone have updates on this topic? I recall Magician said CFAI said they will no longer post it, but want to see if there’s been any changes. Still really curious to see the actual morning session.

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.

No changes; they’re not going to release it.

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

Is this because 2019 exam is not a good resource for 2020 exam because the changes in curriculum? There are still 30+ chapters unchanged, so…

According to Dan McKenna, CFA Institute’s Manager of Supplemental Study Tools, it was a business decision.

Whatever that means.

He did state that it is unrelated to the year-over-year curriculum change.

Has Dan used the word “business” explicitly? Because I don’t see any business improvement for CFAI by deleting 2019 exam. Also considering the CFAI is a non-for-profit organization…

This mean that candidates will be more tilt to buy 3rd parties exam simulations. Don’t want to make further comments. 

They have improved the candidate resources compared to 2016 tho.

Yes.

His reply to my e-mail reads, in part, “While we understand posting the previous year’s essay questions has become a valuable study tool for candidates, we have made the business decision to stop posting them.

Increasing barriers to entry would be my guess. I can’t really think of another reason why they would do it- keep the confidentiality of papers consistent across all 3 levels maybe

The 2019 exam is in my head, and so are the correct answers!

Quite elaborated response, now we know the truth. This is like ” - why did you kill the victim? - Because we took the decision to kill it”

The last time I posted something like this (as a joke) in the L2 boards, several users asked me to reconstruct the exam for them, for $$$!

This is actually a joke.. I barely remember what was on the exam :)

I hope you have a subconscious defense against highly skilled extractors. 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Magician do you stand to sell more of your mocks as a result of this ‘Business’ decision?

That’d be nice.

It’s like asking why they stopped posting the answers and getting an answer “because they can”

It was a long shot, glad i made it.

Even worse, it is like asking:

“Why did you shut down past exams?”

“Yes.”

Thanks man !!

I have been studying sporadically for L3 since 2017 and never took it seriously to pass the exam. This year is different (I think… lol). All this years I have focused my time and effort to work and it has paid off, however, need to close the CFA circle.

Go see Marc L @ Levelup and finish this. Higher probability of passing IMO, then you can teach this stuff if you choose to do so on the side & charge the big bucks :)
