      Ok, so I’ve come to the conclusion today that I don’t have time to get everything done that I wanted before E-day. Primarily because I am going through all the EOC’S and they are taking longer than I thought they would.

      I have completed all Schweser mocks, and 1.5 CFAI mocks. I have 2 CFAI mocks left, but also have all the EOC’S for volumes 5 and 6 (with the exception of trade execution as I wanted to tackle that today). On the basis that Friday is probably gonna be a half day due to the travelling up to London, I think I’m gonna skip the remaining CFAI mocks and concentrate on the EOC’S, especially as volume 5 is derivatives, and that’s an area I’m struggling on at the moment. I’ll probably read through the mocks just to get a flavour of the questions, but can’t really justify doing them instead of the questions.

      Anyone else feeling the same?

      You are not alone, good sir. There has to be a term for this feeling because it happens so often before a big test.

      Just remember that you’ve busted your ass for a significant amount of time preparing for this thing. Do what you gotta do these last couple days but trust in your preparation and your mind’s ability to recall what you’ve learned. I believe that your months of preparation will contribute more to your performance on test day than what you squeeze in during this final week of chaos.

      Simply put, trust the stuff!

      @MattJuniper: rather than fretting abt the less time…do your bit without the frustration..keep cool and do as much u can with a sane mind and trust your brain for the rest
      as @DollarsToDonuts rightly said the past practice would be more helpful than the crammed up revision you do…so take a back seat and relax a bit..breathe!! You have done our bit already

      There comes a point where you say stop, and it is now. It probably starts to have diminishing marginal returns to your effort anyway, you’re better off doing ‘light’ reviews and eating/sleeping well prior to the exams. 🙂
