Final Advice for Level III Candidates

Dear Level III Candidates,

Over the years I’ve seen intelligent and hardworking Level III candidates fail because they did not manage their time well on the morning (structured response) exam.  Please do not let this happen to you.   Be careful about how much time you should spend on each question and stick to the time limit.  If a question is taking too long just write down the most sensible things you can come up with and move on.  Never ever leave anything blank.  Even if the examiner wants to give you some marks he/she can’t unless you’ve written something.  So that is it.  Stay positive and give it your best shot.

I’d love to hear from you after the exam.  Please let me know how you did and whether you have any feedback on IFT products. Over the summer we’ll use your feedback to improve our material.

Good luck and best wishes,

Arif Irfanullah, CFA
