Section cut offs

Postby ayon8212 » Thu Nov 05, 2015 3:27 pm

Hello Sir,

Can you let me know whether sectional cutoffs are considered in FRM exam to consider whether a person has cleared the exam?

Hi Ayon,
There is no sectional cut off in FRM level 1 exams.
Each quartile includes 25% of the total observations.
Observations falling:-
below 25% are allocated under 1st quartile (Q1 )
between 25.1% - 50% are allocated under 2nd quartile (Q2)
between 51% - 75% are allocated under 3rd quartile (Q3)
Remaining are allocated under 4th quartile (Q4)
