The results are out! Did you pass?
After a long wait – the question that has been bugging you has now been answered.
Just a few minutes past 9am ET, the results are finally here, and individual results emails are flying in, being opened and read as this is being typed.
Here’s a quick Q&A to round-up today’s CFA Level I results.
Unfortunately the CFA Institute does not publish your detailed score. You will receive a Pass / Fail grade and in the case of a Fail, an additional Band 1-10 score (10 indicating the closest to a Pass grade). You will also receive a categorical score on your exam topics – just 3 categories: 0-50%, 51-70%, 71% and above.

How does the pass rate compare?
This time, the pass rate was 37% – 1% lower than June 2012.
I didn’t pass 🙁
That really blows. We’ve gone through a few failures ourselves, so we understand how crappy it is to push yourself through all this hard work only to not get through. Here are 5 steps to make the most of this experience.
If you’re not satisfied with your results and wish to request a retabulation, note that this is only a technical check to ensure that your paper was graded correctly with no mistakes. It is not a subjective reconsideration of your case so only request one if you think there has been an error in the grading process.
It’s highly unlikely that you’ll be upgraded to a pass as a result of retabulation – we’ve never heard of it happening, to be honest.
