I am 36 years old.
I wrote level 1 last summer and did not pass. Was in group 7.
I picked up a severe shoulder injury (ironically, happened while walking to the library to study!!!!) about a month before the exam, required about 12 months of rehab.
Is age nothing but a number?
Reason for CFA: I would like to open my own practice and the designation gives me the credibility and legal right to invest money on the behalf of clients.
