      @alta12 don’t think too much about it, to be honest i can’t be bothered to even think what if i fail or pass. We can’t change the outcome anymore, just enjoy your time off while waiting for ‘the day’.

      I kinda had a bit of post-test depression. I built up to it so much, then it was over. It really felt weird to be sitting on the couch watching TV when I would normally be studying. It crossed my mind to dig into level 2 already, but my girlfriend reminded me there were things like playing piano that I had longed for while studying.

      Definitely take a break @ensenmason‌ – you have 6 months or so to enjoy, start after Christmas as you’ll need all the energy for L2 🙂


      @Alta12
      ‌ – I’m sure you did your very best, firing all those practice questions in the last month. And that’s all that matters, you just have to trust that the curve will work in your favour! Enjoy these few months off, you guys all deserve it!

      @Alta12‌ honestly since you are at L3 my comment might not even be relevant but still. Honestly, the only reason I could give the L1 exam was cos I got the Access scholarship. It was literally a miracle for me cos I can’t afford the fee. So I have the added pressure of succeeding. I personally don’t think I did enough but what can you or I do? Do you feel that you did the best that you could? If you do, then just let it be. Let it go and try to forget it for now. I hope everyone all the very best and pray that everyone’s efforts are rewarded.

      @ensenmason you definitely need a break after L1. L2 is a beast, you need to reserve all your energy and take a proper break. @cfacharterwannabe when you get to L3, the fatigue really sets in. And the wait is for ‘do i get my life back’ rather than ‘can I proceed to the next level’. Slightly different type of stress. L2 and L3 are just as hard but L3 has an added layer of stress. Well, we will have to wait and see. Good luck with your results guys and welcome to the journey! You will make study buddies here on this forum and help each other succeed.

      I had a very similar experience. You are not alone!

      @Alta12 I went away straight after the exam (well got up at 7am on Sunday!) and just chilled on the West Coast of Ireland for a week. No internet, just beaches, pubs, singalongs and the craic. Consider taking a holiday!

      @jwa Enjoy your getaway. I had no leave left after using it for study prior to the exam. So not much rest for me except the precious weekends.

      Don’t think too much about it. Now it’s over, nothing is in your hands. Take a break and have fun.getting yourself grounded wouldn’t help you or harm others in any way.
