Just to update everyone.

I passed my exam today! I would say it was about an earned level of 5 to 6.

MFE in March( Hopefully an employer will pay for this one). I would take it in November but I am defending my Thesis during that time and I wouldn't want to deal with both of them at the same time.

It's going well, I'm on level 5 adapt and I'm hoping to get up to level 7 before taking it on Thursday. How about you?

I take it next Saturday. I'm at a 6.3 on adapt right now just planning on taking level 6 tests and reviewing missed problems. I also need to reread the Determinants of Interest Rates study note at some point.

Good luck with your studying you got this!

I was at an EL of 4.4 but I was reviewing every exam in detail and learning how to do all of the questions I missed. I probably only passed by a question or two haha. Never took an exam on adapt higher than 4.4 but the real thing was a little tougher than 4.4.
