        My result is just close to passing and I don’t know what to do and what not. Feeling depressed.

          This is just a blip on your route to greatness, dude. Part of the journey.

          I remember feeling pretty down when that happened to me too (Level 2 fail). I channeled that into anger at L2 which turned into motivation to pass, and did pass the next time around.

          There’s no limit to what determination can get you – we’ve had a reader who passed L2 after 6 years of trying.

          You can also absorb all the motivational energy from our Study Motivation articles here.

          If you need any advice or help along the way, just start a new topic here.

            This is great ! But if I’m not able to clear since 2 yrs and if suppose I clear the 3rd attempt, but what are the chances I can clear level 2 in first ? This is a lot more time consuming !! My age is 23 I have to move on somehow.

                It’s true that if you’re having difficulties at CFA Level 1 you’re in for a world of pain at Level 2. You’ll have to figure out what is it that is hampering your progress and solve it if you want to have a chance at passing Level 2 as well.

                23 years old is pretty much as young as a CFA candidate can be, so I’m not sure what that point was about… ­čśü

                I failed this time because of time mismanagement in 1st half of my exam where solving some difficult questions made me unable to complete other subject on time, so I had to randomly select the other options !! My second half of paper was good

                  Well, there you go. With more mocks and practice, assuming all other factors are maintained you should be good for next time, if you choose to reattempt.
