      So I failed L2, comfortably below the MPS so there’s still a lot of work to be done. I don’t mind retaking and as I didn’t put as much time as I should have, I do feel like I didn’t deserve to pass.

      When thinking about retaking though, I’m wondering are there stats on how many people retake, and how many times they do end up retaking before they pass/give up. Are there any stats like these that have been shared in the past, official or otherwise?

      Retaking L2 is very, very common, I wouldn’t obsess too much about comparing with others. Good luck for your retake!

      Second that excelmonkey. It’s a step up from L2 and frankly insane amount of material to absorb.

      Hope you can prep better this time, feel free to ask questions/concept that you need help with here. I got lucky and just became a charterholder, but feel like I forgot half the things already, so very happy to help and refresh concepts 🙂

      I read somewhere that on average candidates take a little over 4 exams in the course of the entire program, so that’s one retake and a bit. And usually it’s L2 that needs retaking, followed by L3.
