    T
    Thank you so much :) I didn't want to be the first to make that claim, but yes I agree with you.

    And Lanky is right. But still I agree that there were a few questions I couldn't match answers to.

    Too bad you had to defer Imad, you could've done well on 6 hours a week only.

    Q 53 Yield on zero risky bond is 7.5%
    implied pd 16%
    what is the implied 1 year pd??

    I bet that this q was wrong!

    Actually, I don't want to strain my mind remembering anything right now.

    It's time to chill... King Louie style :)

    Frankly I sat for 30 mints in the car after the exam, closing my eyes, trying get my focus again!!!!
    I hope my efforts will bring me " FRM " designation,

    I will write 3 Qs to David, excluding the one I wrote above, which again I Im sure it is wrong, the answers are totally different

    I didn't think that any question was wrong as such. About 53, I think you must have read it wrong?

    Then, can y plz solve it for me?

    I would have used the formula (1 + rfr) = (1 - PD) * (1 + yield)

    Let us wait for everyone's exam to get over.

    I think they asked for the implied risk-free rate.

    Hi all !

    Back from part II, with a biiiiig headache :) Room was overheated :(
    It didn't seem hard but i'm sure now that a made some (stupid) mistakes ...
    the problem is that it was easy for everyone, it willl be harder to pass :'( :'( :'(
    Whatever, we'll see later for results. great if I pass, no problem if i fail, then I will use all David’s new stuff for November Exam !!!

    I've prepared a little feeddback with few questions i remember on textfile as it's still a little fresh . I'll post it later ;o) And indeed laxmsum, there was a question where risk free rate was asked :)

    Oh well.... I guess it shows that for those who did prep properly, the tree does bear the fruit.... I did not prep nearly as much as I should have and let me tell you I frankly found it brutal. I can honnestly say I counted on one hand the number of questions I was very confident answering properly. The rest, was mostly about eliminating one of the answers and then guessing between the remainding 2 or 3. And finished a good 10 secs before they called the time up.

    Lucky you guys there is me to bring the curve down.... this sucks, I hate those tests....

    I'm sorry to hear this Crablegs.
    Maybe we'll both sit again in November.
    Finishing early does not mean getting the right answers.

    Good luck anyway...you never know
