Thank god it’s over, at least for now. I’m glad to see that the months spent preparing for this thing and living like a hermit in all of May paid off. The pass rate for the June exam was an astoundingly high 46%, compared to previous years when it hovered in the ~35% range. I won’t start studying for the level II until October-ish. The level II is supposed to be a real bitch, but at least it covers some interesting topics like econometrics, Miller-Modigliani and Black-Scholes-Merton. Too bad all have very severe practical limitations.
Level 1: Pass
