      Hi everyone, I need some advises here. I’ve just decided to take CFA Level 1 exam June 2020.

      I have 4 months left and I’m worried that I may not be able to make it.

      Is four months enough to prepare for it? I’ve got a degree in economics and finance already.

      What study plan would you suggest if you were me?

      Thank you.

      It’s definitely doable. Lots of CFA candidates that passed the December exams recently are just starting their studies for L2.

      We’ve got a free study plan that you can use:

      Tips (most of these are automatically covered by the 3H planner):

      Start ASAP.Block off enough time on a per-week basis so that the total study time adds up to around 300 hours of study.Make sure you study so that you finish about a month before the exams. You need to leave about a month to focus on mock exams and reviews.Focus your time and effort proportionately according to exam weighting, not complexity. i.e. don’t get bogged down by interesting/complicated/frustrating topics that may not be heavily weighted in the exam.

      You are still in the safe zone. As long as you dont have any major commottments in the next 4 months you should be fine.
