CFA...one of the most difficult exams in the world?
I happened to google “top 10 most difficult exams in the world”. In most rankings, CFA is in top-6 and WSJ even goes as far as saying it’s the most difficult exam in the world.
Can this be really true? I’d say anyone with a normal IQ and time to study will clear all three CFA exams. The level of math required is very low. There are few, if any, topics which would require a highly functioning brain in order to understand the concept.
Just really surprised by the ranking, that’s all.
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.
Study together. Pass together.
