We can’t tell you the chances because we don’t know. But I got roughly the same scores as you last year, and I was Band 10 as well. I don’t really see much grounds for an appeal, but your call obviously.
the upside is saving a repeat fee and no having to study 400+ hours followed by 2 months of worry and 1 day of excruciating worry.Oh and you get bragging rights if it works out. Only you can put a price on these.
I think it is still worth it… It seems unlikely that a person who got over 70 in everything in the afternoon session to fail almost everything in the morning session!!! Hallo cfa, how fair and objective is that?
Guys, they don’t regrade your exam. Check the CFAI website carefully. For the essay section, they just make sure every question was graded, make sure the totals were added correctly, and make sure the score was correctly marked in the database. For the item sets, they manually grade against an answer key but the machine is probably 99.9% right. So the $100 pays for your peace of mind. Do NOT think that there is even a small chance that your score will change.
And to add to this, I’m sure that they have a template for filling in scores for each essay question. So they would know right away if there was a number left out because a question was not graded, or a score was left out. With all the spaces in the template filled out with a score, then it’s just addition. So the $100 fee is really just a check on their ability to add (punch in numbers in a calculator).
