I don't agree with J0_...the exam was not that easy... it was very difficult. Most of the questions were qualitative. The exam was NOT diversified. Many topics were not tested such as Tuchman (interest rate theories), Correlation Modeling, Merton Models...and many.
In some cases, we got 3 question from 1 page such as VAR Backtesting and VAR Analysis (marginal, component..) I can quant abut 7-8 questions about these two points only.
About 50% of the topics were not tested completely. Here is my performance:
35 questions 100% sure.
25 questions between two choices
20 question random guessing...
I am not sure if this will be enough to clear the exam. lets wait and see.
Exactly 2 years ago, i was in your situation and stressed that I failed. I managed to find all the answers to the 80 questions in this forum and looking at other resources. Anyway, I found out that 41 questions correct and all the rest incorrect (with a confidence level of 100% because I remembered exactly what i answered to every questions) and guess what, I scored 1,1,1,2,1. I know its hard to believe but why would I lie, I am not selling anything and you can still check my posts on this forum in 2013, you will see that I was there. So, relax, enjoy your time and i can guarantee that with your 35, 25, 20 you are almost guarantee to pass. Hard to believe but anyone who wants to challenge me on that, be prepared, because I am speaking out of experience (my experience and friends experience too). And the same goes for CAIA that I just cleared (made a LOT of mistakes and still passed it). Just relax
