    I definately remember a question that was word for word exactly the same as either the past exams (2010 - 2014) or schweser questions. But cant specifically remember for the life of me. And no this is not the QQ. It was a theoretical.

    The question was find the lowest mvar with treynor ratio greater than 0.1. So yes this will be lowest porfolio beta out of the 3 (because only asset A treynor was less than 0.1) whose treynor ratio come out to be greater than 0.1. I think it was asset B or C. Cant remember Exactly.

    Hello All, To me the exam was a hit or miss. about 30 questions were very straght forward which i think everyone would get right.so im guessing about 25 to 30 correct questions would be the cutoff for the 4th quartile. I struggled with majority of the remaining questions by not being able to...

    If i remember correctly wasnt this the one where the 3 mo and 6 mo spots were given and the 3 mo, 3 months from now forward was to be calculated? I used 182/365 for 6 mo and tried both 92/365 and 91/365 for 3 mo to calc the forward.. I remember both answers were fitting into one choice.

    I think i messed up most of the simple questions and did most complicated ones right. The var and es question. No idea. I just chose the arbitrary averages Bayes question. No idea. Chose B. The scatterplot im my opinion exhibited 0 correlation. Sd of porfolio would just be without corr term...
