      is there a minimum score required for each topic to pass the exam. for example you have to get at least a minimum of 50 percent in FRA to pass, if you go below this even if you get 80% average you still fail. or is the mps for the entire exam?

      thank you guys

      @trix I’d have thought it’s MPS only, however there’s probably a minimum score for Ethics?

      @trix @sophie there is no minimum passing score for any one topic. You can score a zero in any topic (including Ethics) so long as you beat the MPS.

      Thank God! QUANT SS 3 is killing me! Hopefully, just being an ace at qbank basic questions will be sufficient (to build enough points for that section) by June 2014. So much to learn, so little time! *ONLY* 249 days left. Yikes!

      I am considering dropping Creighton and just plow on with Schweser… I ended up buying the CFA ‘SuperSize me’ package. I also have a lot of the other apps, as well as TimePrep. I am finding all the discussion board requirements for the MSA at Creighton to be a real drain on my reading and learning.

      Odd huh, a university course is not helping me study. It almost sounds oxymoron-ic. Oxymoron-ish? Dunno, but I know one thing… it’s way late here in Florida and I have to be up in a few hours!

      Any thoughts on just going the Schweser + TimePrep + apps route? Kind of curious at this point.

      All the best,

      Actually, it isn’t all of SS3 which is killing me, just Reading 11 and then some of the dispersion / probability areas. Grrr… can’t stand statistics. 8-}

      Quant is incredibly important though. It underpins a lot of the other topics, and in Level 2 it becomes even more significant. I’d advise to keep plugging at it, try to kick its ass and become a quant master…

      Schweser + Timeprep is fine – the important thing is to set aside time to absorb the material. If the Creighton stuff is draining rather than helping I’d say no sense in continuing.
