Third time’s the charm? Fingers crossed!
Good morning everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
Mine was mostly spent studying… I’m finally writing my “Wealth Management Essentials” exam 2 (the last exam for this course) today. This is the third time I’ve been booked to write this case-study-based exam, but only the first (and hopefully only) time I am actually writing.
It’s like I was jinxed during the last two attempts! Both times, I was very sick in the hospital, and I had to postpone the writing. It was kind of weird. But, today feels good – I don’t think I’ll need to be rushed to the hospital this time. Third time’s the charm, right?
This is probably going to be the most difficult of my exams to date – I usually do pretty well with the multiple choice questions, but this one puts all I’ve learned into practice and the questions are based on about four long case studies, with 60 questions posed for them.
And of course, it doesn’t help that since enrolling in this course, I’ve moved to the MFDA platform which doesn’t require me to have the WME within 30 months of my career start. IIROC licensing requires it, but the MFDA does not (and there’s a ton of the content which is based on stock trades I no longer do working at the bank) but it’s good knowledge to have anyhow, in case I ever move back to an IIROC firm.
So, wish me luck… My exam is at 6:30pm today. Let’s hope I don’t have a freak accident before I write tonight!
