The first CFE

Today writers across Canada finished their first day of the brand new Common Final Examination (CFE) for the new CPA designation. Said to be as challenging as the UFE, the CFE is a three day case based exam and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of differences appear, if any.

To those writers who managed their way through the first day, the advice is always the same:

  • Avoid talking about the exam because it will only hurt your confidence – everybody things they did bad.
  • Don’t burden yourself with more studying between days because your brain needs rest right now.
  • Get plenty of sleep and go in everyday giving 100% because you just don’t know how well you did in comparison to everybody else.

Good luck over the next two days!
