    Hi Everyone,

    This is for individuals who scored in the range of 300's but less than 360 and could not pass the exam (either part 1 or 2).

    How are you coping with the stress of studying all over again, especially when you felt the previous exam had gone really well.

    How soon are you all targeting to reappear for the exam? What schedule are you following? What has motivated all of you to get back at it?

    Any insight is helpful at this time.

    Thank you,

    I got 330 in my Part 2 exam and right after giving my exam I was aware of the fact that I might not qualify, reason being the essay portion was completely unexpected and lengthy. the examiner literally selected few headings from the book and asked to right all theory. But still I was hoping against all odds but unfortunately I failed. Now planning to appear in April, May as I believe I need to polish the essay portion. I entirely skipped the essay portion as I did in Part 1. I qualified Part 1 but got nailed in part two. it's stressing and painfully learning all over again. 
    since no pain no gain, so will do it again.  Good Luck to you.

    IMA's report card might help finding your weak point and if you have failed multiple times in the range of 300 then it is about time you have to reevaluate your self and change your strategy
