      There will be a tool posted within the next few hours. We need to work on the tool on-the-fly as the results categories change from year to year in Level 3. Stay tuned!

      @vincentt you’re one of the most deserving L3 candidates IMHO. Shame you didn’t make it. ๐Ÿ™

      @sophie not quite, got band 8, afternoon one was okay but morning one I screwed the whole thing up. 6 topics below 50% 4 between and only 1 above 70%.

      Sorry to hear @vincenttโ€Œ – keep going and am sure next year will be better. I completely agree that the morning was bad. 

      Congratulations @Alta12โ€Œ and @Jwaโ€Œ

      @comicbookguy well done; you were a band 10 last year also if I recall?  Congrats to @RaviVooda also who I saw passed. Commiserations to @vincentt

      @Sophie I didn’t clear again. Band 8. Congrats to all those who cleared @Alta12, @RaviVoodaโ€Œ , @comicbookguyโ€Œ , @Jwaโ€Œ. Well done, you deserve it!! @vincentโ€Œ All I can say is I know the feeling, just have to take it on the chin and keep moving.

      I used to postpone a lot of things to do after I complete my CFA, but I realise that I can’t keep putting life on hold while I pursue CFA. I won’t give up but I hope not get too burdened by my own expectations like I used to ๐Ÿ™‚

      sorry to hear that @AjFinanceโ€Œ ! I did poorly on the morning paper, I thought i could answer them okay, didn’t expect to get that bad, not too sure what I could have done differently.

      I don’t want to give up, but I need to reassess other priorities that has been postponed for over 2 years now. We shall see, but not to forget about the first deadline on Sept 24th.

      @vincentt Me too! I might just register after the first deadline.

      @AjFinanceโ€Œ why after the first deadline? You’ll pay an extra $195 (last year was a difference of $180), but to be fair CFAI only releases L3 results in mid Aug, not much time to think.

      @vincenttโ€Œ โ€Œ I know, that makes sense. But like you said, the results don’t give us much time to think.

      @AjFinance, @vincett – I would not rush to make a decision. I needed time to think about it last year and admittedly that came with a financial penalty, but I thnk it was right to step back and also totally reevaluate my approach to LIII.  I know how you feel about CFA taking over your life; my feeling after hearing about passing this year was not one of joy really, but total relief – admittedly my views on the CFA are not wholeheartedly positive and well-trailed on this forum – and my wife was in tears because she knew she had me back! So I would take the ยฃ(no dollar sign on this mobile device) hit and really think about whether you want to proceed.  I ultimately decided I would forget too much and just needed it out the way (before life/family really intervened!), but taking a year or two off might absolutely be the correct action and has proved so for some people who I work with.
