Morning was okay and afternoon was hard! I keep forgetting to refer to the correction papar, and there's 2 questions which I completely left blank.

Better than me. I left two completely, but a bunch of sub questions. I think I can pick up 55 scores from this sitting, which is very dangerous position.

TIA.

Did you attempt this sitting? Seems like there isn't a lot of people taking as compared to the previous sitting, judging from how quiet this thread is

Just curious what people think about the sitting.

I am in Seattle and was the only one here sitting for QFI QF this round.

I felt that the morning session was harder. There were probably 4 questions that I earned about half credit on. I think I did okay on the others.

I think the fall exam papers are testing similar source as spring, especially the forward measure, risk reversal, I cannot believe that they just pop out again.

Yeah agree, and the - N(-d1) derivation. I should had pay more attention to the fall exam solution. I kept thinking that they won't ask the same thing again and they prove me wrong.

Risk reversal questions is fine, I'm glad they asked about the Greeks instead of vanna volga as I did not study in depth canna volga because of the same reason above haha.

I'm also surprised that they asked 2 PCA questions and 1 ESG question. I spend most of my section 5 reading on Tsay material, but I should hopefully be able to score some points from this 3 questions.
