Hi,

I working full time as ops analyst in a big hedge fund and they made me to take the imc exam. During the lockdown , all the exams were ceased util further notice and I have seen that the exams will resume on July. I have bought the Kaplan package with online courses and i am wondering if it is enough to read the notes and do the practice questions in order to pass the exam . I have looked for past exams papers but i found only 2. To be honest , i am bit stressed for this exam and i would appreciate any tip. Thanks in advance for your help.

P.S My background is Bsc Economics in University of Sussex and Msc Quantitative Finance in University of Nottingham

if you have done quantitative finance and economics, it shouldn't be too tasking. Unit 1 is more theoretical- mainly read/understand and memorise- the financial markets, structures, ethics, financial crime etc. Unit 2 has some micro/macro econometrics/ into statistics stuff and more quant and calculations e.g VAR, DCF etc .. which wont be too hard for you with your background. I read somewhere total qualification time is 120h per unit, but ill say it takes a little more.

The notes are enough, I make bullet points from the main notes and re-read those. Hoping to take unit 1 in 4 weeks. and unit 2 couple weeks later.

Ps, what s it like working in a hedge fund? I am doing a MSc in FInance right now from a non related background and also a DIploma in statistics, looking to get into an analyst role and later on into Market/Credit RIsk. Not aiming for a big IB , im actually interested in hedge funds or boutique. Can you tell me a little about how you got into your role.
Thanks
P

Also look on Scribd, some people upload their study notes and also the past study text which is good. I downloaded v14 which was for 3 years ago, this years exam uses v17 which has been updated but most information e.g the structure of the financial markets, MIfid rules, remains the same . Helps me understand because its written slightly differently so you can learn from reading across both texts
