This might make you feel a bit better - I've only been studying for this thing (Part I) for about a week... Because of some life events, I didn't get to put in the effort I would have liked to, and unfortunately I missed the deferral deadline too.
Been taking the older GARP practice exams and scoring in the 60-80% range (I'm an actuary, so I have previous exposure to a lot of the concepts)
However, I have low expectations. This is a disappointingly unlucky situation but I will still at least get a feel of the exam and try my best...who knows, I may even pass!
I also want to express my nervousness in this round. The FRM LvL 1 Exam will be on 18. nov and even though I studied really hard and learned a lot, still I have the feeling that its going to fail. I just don't want to get disappointed at the end.
