I took L2
three months after my wife had our first child and it was a massive
error. Not only was I completely exhausted, my study time was poor due to
having to look after my new family and I missed out on time with my child when
he was very young. My wife tried to be supportive but after the exam she said
she felt abandoned. I couldn’t imagine what it would have been like if I had had the baby myself!
I spoke to my local CFA society who was trying to sell me on joining and when I
said I had just had a new baby, she said “so you will be deferring
then?” she was very surprised when I said no.
yourself and your family a favor, defer to next year.
I completely agree with @JaminioSilva. I don’t see how it’s possible to have a 2-3 week old stay at home while you go take the exam for the entire day.
It’s a shame to defer for another year, but I’m quite sure it won’t work out if you try and have a kid and the CFA exam a few weeks after that.
