Is L2 more calculation intensive than L1?

Just wondering. I barely used a calculator on level one. Level two gives you more time per question, does that mean we’ll be doing more calculations?


After taking level 2 last year, I would say that the calculations are more in depth, but there are less of them. There were a lot of questions that required complete understanding of a subject, but little calculation.

Agree with lxada’s comment. A lot of the questions didn’t ask you to calculate a specific number, rather they would ask whether a certain metric or value would increase / decrease. If you understand the concept you can conceptually understand the impact of change and thus no actual calculation is required. That being said, if you perform the calculation you’d be that much more confident in your answer.
