There are a lot of non-sense in this exam in level II especially what is a fail or pass. For those who were amazingly suprise by their results, join this discussion. For my part i gave it for retab especially for the corp/ eco and portfolio management portion.
I was too astonished at my result and still find it very unbelievable… I was pretty confident I passed yet I ended up being placed at band 4 but it seems like there are many complaints of a similar kind this year… What are the chances that the CFAI repeated 2004 mistake and had machine errors while grading some papers? Oh I wish this turns out to be the case to avoid going through this headache again… My morale is severely down… Thinking about it: more people than every other year expressed surprise at their results and also the CFAI obviously experienced technical issues on the results posting day… these are maybe indicators that something went wrong… but even if this is the case, I doubt that they’ll admit it… Not sure I’d be able to regain faith in my ability to pass it having placed in band 4… Very very unbelievable and unexpected to me… I wish I can see how they graded my paper… There’s no way I’d have scored this… No way… I know this for a fact…

You don’t need to be picky with the exact wording. There may have been a bit of exaggeration in my expression yet I meant to say my result was totally totally unexpected although I’m a pessimist in nature…
I also got band 4 and couldn’t believe I failed. I was in band 10 last year. Was a lot more prepared this time around.
Band 7 and Band 4. I would retab for peace of mind for sure.
when will retab marks will be known?
I was astonished. check out the “is anyone questioning the integrity of the test string”.

I have my retab results already. No change.
No change ? sad how quick you got your retab results?
I got them last week. I applied a few days after the results were out.

I gave it for Retab as I could’nt believe my eyes when I saw a 50-70% in FSA, I was expecting a 90% on that section and was a complete lock. The suckers sent me this template as usual.
