150,000 Financial Services Employees To Find Out Saturday If Last 4-6 Months Of Their Lives Were Worth It

To most of the world, June 7th is just another summer Saturday. To those sitting for the Level I, II, or III CFA exams, it’s the day that determines if months of sacrificing their personal and professional lives– and in many cases, general standards of hygiene– in exchange for study time paid off. For those taking I and II, successful performances will dictate if they buy the books for II and III, or slink back to their old test prep rooms as if nothing happened. Those who pass III will be one step closer to mecca.

CFA Institute, the global association of investment professionals that sets the standard for professional excellence, announces that 148,927 candidates from 179 countries have registered for Level I, II and III CFA exams, to be administered on June 7 worldwide. This weekend candidates will take the next step towards earning the CFA charter, the mark of excellence within the investment profession, in a commitment to uphold the highest standards of investment practice and to serve investors and the global economy.

    There's still time to cram. I booked a good 70 study hours my last week of L3 a few years back and it made the difference.

    $150 million revenue from an exam, and then there's the December Level I cycle. Not a bad gig if you can get it..

    Experience will get you paid, not the 3 letters. This test is past its prime.
