        @alta12, @vincentt, @Marc‌ ,@ajfinance how was the exam guys. I think morning was more time consuming than afternoon. I think overall exam difficulty is a bit more than average.

            @RaviVooda‌ I think the morning one was tough and very time consuming i spent too much time on the PM – Individuals, end up having to forego some.

            Afternoon was… let’s just say i have plenty of time to spare.

            @sophie But you were able to make it up in the PM paper!

            @vincentt @Alta12 @RaviVooda‌ I thought the exam was tougher than I expected. Morning was taking ages to get over.
            Although, I finished the afternoon session before time, I felt like I didn’t fare well in that either.

            But I didn’t dissect my performance too much. Who knows, we might just be prone to Availability Bias depending on how the last half hour went 8-| But I agree that it was tougher.

              Well I’m fairly sure I failed. I finished – just – the morning session, but one sub-question I didn’t write anything for and a few others fairly sure I was off the mark badly.

              For the PM, finished within an hour. I’ve got at least 55% correct, but that is far below my average mock score.
              I thought the wording of some of the questions was particularly poor – I think I know what they were trying to ask in terms of CBOK, but in terms of the English language that was not what the question asked. So I had to choose between what I think they were trying to ask and what they actually did ask. Rather unimpressed with that.

              @ravivooda @vincentt @sophie @beancounter @ajfinance It’s going to be a long 2 months wait. I could barely sleep the last few nights. I think I felt better coming out last year from the exam hall than this year. And already the text and phone calls are arriving ‘How did you go?’ Now I have to go into the office and face the same ‘music’ @-)

                @sophie, I would like to thank you and the 300hours team for really guiding and helping us through out ^:)^ . You guys have been really patient in answering our questions. Now need to wait and watch for the results…

                @ravivooda @vincentt I’m worried. I rushed through the morning towards the end. Not sure if I read the questions right but I managed to finish ‘Just!’. I thought afternoon was hard [-(

                  I had some time to spare on the morning session, but I have not heard of anyone else, so I’m starting to worry that I may have missed a question :-O Afternoon session went ok-ish but we’ll have to wait another 10 weeks to know for sure… At least I’m happy that it’s over for now!

                    @vincentt, I felt morning session was too tooo lengthy than being hard (not that it is easy 😀 ).

                    Ugh I know, L3 can be brain draining. I didn’t finish my AM paper remember – so it’s not that bad. 🙂

                      For what it is worth, while the morning session was long, I thought it was more straightforward than last year, if by no means “easy”. However, I would say that the afternoon felt significantly more difficult than last year, and most people I talked to (including some other retakers) thought the same – I can’t even remember if we’re allowed to talk about relative difficulty, but frankly who cares right now!

                        @Alta12‌ i left half of the fixed income question in AM off and few other sub questions blank too, cos it looks like something i have no idea about so might as well just let it go. PM was definitely straight forward compared to all the mocks i’ve done.

                        Don’t worry about it, what we feel might be different to what the results have to say! lol
