    IMPORTANT 2021 Exam Update from GARP (for 2020 postponed exam updates only)

    Hello Everyone, Wanted to check if anyone has requested for deferral of their exams in Jan 2021 to May 2021 owing to COVID19 situation in their city.

    How many certified FRM's globally? In the USA?

    Oops! Now you know I haven't cleared Level 2 yet:D However, that's informative and nice to learn that. But I wonder why people will opt out ? Due to privacy :eek:? Even CFA has the same option to search CFAs out across the globe.

    How many certified FRM's globally? In the USA?

    How many certified FRM's globally? In the USA?

    Hey @Branislav, I am quoting some pointers i looked out for the part 1 exam: 1. After writing once, one must have already gained a clear understanding of where one is faltering via honest introspection. Once you have identified that start going through concepts once again and try to solve...

    I think quartiles are just indicate range of scores of individuals but the pass/fail decision must be based on a definite cut off or plethora of other sub-cutoffs. Now, even if 2 people have same quartiles, they may have different totals marks which might have been crucial in determining the...

    It was stock price as per my note that i made immediately after the getting out of the exam venue. Considering a 'uniform, linear decline' emphasized in the question, i felt the question was worded in a tricky way to confuse candidates but since the assumption was 'linear and uniform decline' ...

    1-.375=62.5% P = 1- (15 - 0) / (40 - 0) = 0.625 i.e. assuming it's decreasing from 40 to 16. Please let me know your thoughts.
