and Happy for it to be done with.

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.

Ditto Arakhanna - to both statements.

five years

Level 1–two attempts, one year
Level 2–two attempts
Level 3–two attempts

I studied philosophy at university, so I had zero background in accounting, which made Levels 1+2 a rough ride. Failing Level 3 last year was a big shock, though.

24.. 4/2, L I twice..

24.. 4/3, L I twice..

22 years old.

3/3 in 2 years (Dec 06, June 07, June 08)

Need to wait atleast 2 more years to become charterholder though.

Age: 31

2006: Lv 1 passed
2007: Lv 2 failed
2008: Lv 2 passed
2009: Lv 3 ????

Does anyone actually know the approximate percentage that does the infamous 3/3? I seem to remember it is ballpark 5% of people that pass.

=======================================

can you please explain why is it so infamous???

People seem to be getting a lot of stick when raising the matter, so there was a slight irony to the “infamous” bit.

=======================================

dude, people get a lot of stick because very few can do it , I fully understand that (3x3) does not make for a better analyst

but deep within everyone is trying to for the “REAL” 3x3 tell me one person on AF who does not want an 3x3

if few people get it, its but obvious that those who didn’t are going to give the poor guy lot of stick

equity_research_nds

Agree, it was my goal (and I assume the goal of everyone elses) when I started. I am still lined up for one myself, but that was not the point. I was just trying to get a feeling for the amount of people who do a “real” 3x3

ditto for me, but may I also add relieved. That was the over-arching emotion for me yesterday.

That makes four charterholders in our office (well, will be after I get one more year of work experience) and all four of us went 3/3.

26 3/3

it took me 3 months to prepare for L1 , 5 days L2 and 12 days L3..(narrow escapes)

I’m in the same boat – taking L3 after a year off. Did you find it difficult to pick up where you left off? I’m a little worried the context from L2 will be lost when I go to study.

24 - 2 for 2

22 - 2 for 2

40 (3/3).
