    What is the “save zone” MPS for level 2, is the same as level 1?

    The safe zone is always 70% and above – it applies to all levels 🙂

    Always aim for 70+ %

    I have heard from Schweser professors that 65% is MPS, but you should be targeting 70% on the practice exams.

    You would never know. MPS keeps changing but ofcourse, greater than 70 in FRA, Equity and then average scores in at least Ethics, CFin and Derivatives will almost get you home and dry. Oh Fixed Income is also weighted more now!

    Haha even I was looking for it lately. I got paranoid coz I scored 60% in my morning session practice exam today.

    Well 70+ is the safe zone but the MPS can be anything ranging from 61-67%. I think that’s a reasonable range from all the sources I’ve read.

    The CFAI actually has guidelines on how MPS is established. You can find the info on the bottom of this page: http://www.cfainstitute.org/programs/cfaprogram/exams/Pages/cfa_exam_results.aspx

    I’ve heard 65% from Schweser profs as well. That seems about right to me, but @RoyD is right that it changes for each exam based on the factors you can read about above. I wouldn’t put too much effort into figuring the mechanics out though. I feel like most candidates freak out about the MPS because they’re scoring right around 70% on the mocks, which means being in the fail zone is very possible. The reality though is that even if you knew the MPS ex-ante it wouldn’t actually help you pass. Just focus on crushing it and not worrying about anything but the vignette at hand during the exam.

    Good luck everyone, and may the MPS be ever in your favor.
