        Hi everyone!
        Best of luck to everyone with results day coming up tomorrow! Or if you’re a Hunger Games or Star Wars fan, May the odds be ever in your favor/ May the force be with you. How’s everyone feeling?!?

          i’m in the same boat as @Stuj79, whenever I have doubts about the results I go to my quiet place and think for a while over every section in the exam and tell myself I’m over the 70% hurdle…annnd then 10 minutes later I start again. frustrating. The only upside for me is, since I’m not eligible for the L2 exams in June, I get two more chances (which I prefer not to take) before I take the L2, so…but all in all I won’t be sleeping tonight (whether or not I pass or fail) since the results are emailed to me at 1:00am local time.

                      @dphauserโ€Œ I’m just trying to do whatever I can to calm my nerves right now. This forum, Facebook, reading movie reviews. Just so freaking out right now and every minute’s just adding to the pressure.
                      @simply_complex2 I don’t think mine will be in junk because all emails I’ve ever received from the institute arrive directly in my inbox.

                              Well less than 4 hours to go now. Tried to sleep as much as I could so I don’t need to obsess over the results. Now I’m just playing video games to take my mind off it. The sad part is that knowing that I’ve passed will only give me relief rather than make me overjoyed because there are no marks. But if I fail I will feel shattered … 6 months of hard work and all that money is just too much to accept failure.

                                            @jessmatโ€Œ Gotta say that’s the toughest pill to swallow. So close, yet so far. But at least you’ll pass it in June for sure. All the best.
                                            @maverick You must be feeling cheated by your own memory. But that’s pretty close so don’t stress.

                                            Hey Roy.

                                            Nah, I’ve had 17 years to get used to my memory failings now. I’ll just have to repeat and repeat until it’s ingrained by June.
                                            It is irritating to go from 70+ to fail in a few short months though.

                                              But yeah, overall I feel relatively confident (at the risk of looking very silly tomorrow), but just want to get my result now…sick of waiting.

                                                        Memory retention issues strike again. Oh well, there’s always June.

                                                                  I agree that I messed up with the concepts during the real test. The calculation part was really simple (I nailed Quants + Port Mgt, but the rest….)

                                                                  If I go with June14, that gives me 4 months and 1 week to reinforce my conceptual understanding. Won’t lie that I feel kinda sad now. :'(
