Addition, some examples how it is not supposed to be:
- as a non native English Speaker, I found in some cases in the exam, they used synonyms for words like "good", "acceptable" or "appropriate" which are not that common - like someone said, "we used "best approach" already twice in the exam...
I don't want to unburry an older thread, but I came here from the October 2020 Exam Feedback Thread and wanted to share some of my thoughts.
I think the lack of actual excercises in the curriculum makes it quite hard to pass the exam just with the GARP provided materials - frankly, it is...
Fun fact: Because I already took the Part II exam, I still had the 2019 books, without the Liquidity part - I didn't want to pay for all the books again, so I just had the BT Material to study.
Had a 2 on all topics, except Liquidity, where I scored ... first quartile.
Thanks David and Nicole.
Depending on your timezone it probably doesn't make sense :-)
I think they will release the results during the day American time (not sure which zone they are in).
That's well into the afternoon/evening for Asia and Europe.
What annoys me most:
1. They surely knew well before the 29th that they wouldn't make it in time.
2. They know everyone is waiting for the result anxiously.
3. Just writing a mail maybe with a sincere apology would have cost literally nothing but 10 Minutes effort.
As european, I did not even think of thanksgiving. But it makes a lot of sense now. Probably they just moved the exam date and kept the publication date 6 weeks after the exam, oblivious of the holiday. It really looks that this has taken them by surprise given the late communication.
If you took part 1, it actually could be a good sign.
Historicaly, being able to register for part 2 meant you passed part 1. It was an early tell, but only like some hours before the official confirmation.
Being able to register for the same exam that you took used to be a bad sign.
