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.
In the FAQ it literally says SUNDAY 29th and in the Member section it used to be "no later than 29th".
In my understanding, "no later than" means before November 29th, 23:59:59. So I would have expected getting the results latest Monday morning.
It is also a bit funny that they have have had 6...
I see this too, but on the FAQ it says 29th.
No feedback direct from GARP so far.
The whole process is very intransparent, if they need to postpone the publication of results, at least they could have sent a mail instead keeping on our toes for all this time.
Like I said, the early tells are not reliable.
Given the fact that users of the forum / BT subscribers usually have a higher than average pass rate, it is quite unlikely that all who tried this failed.
There was a similar thread back in 2019...
Got the same, however I did not pass 2019 and it seems based on the Date May 16 2020 to retake the exam, it still might be the old letter, just with an updated header (which might be automatically updated)
