Bloomberg has more on the CFA Level III exam test results:
A lower percentage of Wall Street job applicants passed the third and final test to become Chartered Financial Analysts, a designation that offers an edge during Wall Street’s worst shakeout in at least three decades.
Forty-nine percent of candidates passed the third stage of the test, down from 53 percent last year, the CFA Institute said in an e-mailed statement today.
Level II passes are also down, but Level I passes appear to be up. The CFA Institute shows the following pass rates:
Level I: 46%
Level II: 41%
Level III: 49%
