Just found out I passed QFI IRM.

I started preemptively studying last month. Just about wrapping up section 2 of the syllabus.

I am going to read all the readings then to the TIA seminar.

What are you doing?

Congratulation!
Until now, I have prepared 20% of the new material from QFIQF and enjoy it so much, suddenly, I realized that I passed that exam. ACTUALLY, I don't what I should do from now.

Hi yyConsultant, may I ask that whether CERA is worthy, since I think if I could get FSA, no one really cares about CERA, and it is nothing more than a title.

Though 4 hrs exam (ERM) instead of 2 hrs exam (IRM) gives a new title, I'm not sure if I have enough time to prepare ERM. Is ERM harder than IRM or more time consuming?

Thanks.

I think whether taking ERM or IRM just depends on your situation. I took ERM exam just because I want to use ERM exam as a transitional stage between preliminary exams and 5 hours exam. Since I have no experience on IRM, it is hard to say which on is more difficult. The only difference is that you have read more material and being able to understand risk management deeper from ERM compared with IRM. Besides, I DO think ERM is much difficult than QFIQF.

Thank you so much for your advice.

Well i am almost finished with reading the source readings. This is not that bad. Definitely more gentle than QFI Core.

There is certainly alot of material but not as much of it is super difficult.
