Exam Passing Strategy (PALS)

PALS stands for Proactive Assessment Learning System. PALS is a uniquely designed concept of testing the students during as well as after the class. Proactive assessment has the advantage of developing problem solving skill in the simulated CFA examination environment. It helps to reduce anxiety and develops the confidence in the candidate to face the final examination in a much more prepared way.

PALS also helps in creating a strong foundation about the concepts as more and more problem solving involuntarily helps clarifying concepts and helps in memorizing concepts for longer duration.

Under PALS we suggest to follow the below mentioned guidelines to pass CFA Exam in the first attempt

  • The CFA Institute recommends 250 hours of preparation – In our view you would need around 300 -350 hours for preparation
  • 10 – 12 hours of study per week is the minimum requirement
  • Identification of strength and weak area topics by weight
  • Master the area that caries higher weight and excel in easy topics
  • Focus on what the instructor is stressing, read the concepts
  • Get your doubts cleared in class – no question is silly; ask questions any number of times
  • Work as a team to understand the difficult and tricky areas
  • Understand clearly the concepts and their application to problem solving
  • Without solving questions, it is very difficult to pass CFA
  • Take three offline tests to ensure that you are geared for the grueling six hours
  • Take the CFA mock exam paper
