I thought this forum was to discuss topics for L1 exams and study strategies. Instead this forum is becoming more like a spam by advertisers and book sellers trying to sell their material. Just look at threads for earlier years, so much of discussions and meaningful information were shared.

Request to those ppl not to spam here and look for other ways of advertising. 

To others, I request if you all can share your strategies to study in the last 120 odd days remaining for the exam.

Stick to CFA curriculum and try to finish it at least a month before so that you can revise, do mock test etc in last one month. Fixed income and derivative will take more time to study compare to other topics. Practice and lot of it, is the key to pass comfortably in L1.

Guys please help me with the fees payment bit.It is not at all clear to me.They said payment had to be made in dollars. I have State bank Maestro Debit to pay for the fees then?Please help

First pls find out if you can make international transactions with your debit card from your bank. If you can do intl transactions then you simply complete the details on CFA payment site and u will be debited with USD amt just like any other online payment u wld generally do on Indian sites. The bank generally marks up around 3.5% above the exchange rates.

Guys... Exam hall tickets are out... Hope the studying gears are in the top slot with Nitro boost on!!!

ATB to all... And yeah Happy Diwali and a prosperous new year!!!

Finally a relief!!! changed the centre to mumbai... Puys if you have noticed... exams are exactly 100 days from today!!!!:shocked:

ATB for the prep...

I want to apply for CFA L1 December 2011 exam.Until last year by June itself India used to get centers as we can see in the CFA L1 2010 thread of PG.Therefore I was waiting for India to get a center this year too.But the second deadline is approaching fast (24th August) but,India still doesn't have any center.

Dunno what to do

Actually the Court's approval is very much delayed... For last yr Dec'10 L1 exam, it got approved in April'10 and for June'11 exam the same was approved in end of Jan'11... I have already registered for Dec'11 exam with colombo as the centre... Fingers crossed for approval to conduct the exams in India!!!

Historically, the news regarding Indian centre availability comes 2 mnths b4 the exams.... Nevertheless no news yet... keep ur eyes and ears open to all news!!!

can someone please tell the exact amount those bank people charged for level 1 fee payed before 1st deadline. Citiank charged me some 2000 extra as service charges and all.. is it the same with everyone???
originally it was 1055$ at around 45.2 exchange rate... but the bill shows RS 49525.

i applied on 14th March and was charged by Stan chart Credit card for Rs. 47056 (@3.5% mark up price) so works out to be almost same...

So why is the thread so silent nowadays.... are ppl busy with Studies or THE WC Effect....

neways ppl pls throw around ideas for a schedule....
