      Sounds unbelievable:

      “A truck carrying their exams was hijacked and all the cargo was stolen on Monday, the Brazilian branch of the CFA Institute said in a document obtained by Bloomberg, adding that chances of recovering the material are slim. The robbery affected 140 candidates who paid about $1,000 for the test, Mauro Miranda, the president of CFA Society Brazil, said in an interview.”

      “CFA is offering candidates a full refund or a chance to retake the test in January or June. It will also speed up their scoring, while waiving fees for those who want to take the next level of the exam.”

      I would be PISSED.

      Maybe someone didn’t like how he performed in the CFA exam and decided to invalidate it himself… 🙂

      Seriously though, you could come out ahead if you got L1 Dec reimbursed, took the 13th January exams, passed, and registered for L2 for free.

      That’s a very short window to notify CFA Institute – if you were to be on holiday and not looking at email you’re screwed.
