EQE results were released to candidates yesterday. Congratulations if you passed, but if you didn’t, here’s a reminder:
- These exams are hard, and failure is normal. Less than half of the 2019 EQE candidates who took all four papers passed all four. In addition, this year has been particularly difficult and stressful, for pandemic reasons and also because of the exams being online for the first time.
- You can still succeed in your chosen profession. Most of our qualified colleagues have failed at least once on the path to success.
- It’s easy to think that you are the only person struggling, and that everyone else is doing fine. Social media can make this worse. But remember, that’s only half the picture: nobody posts on LinkedIn to tell the world that they didn’t pass the exams.
- If you need support, we have lots of information and resources on the Welfare and Wellbeing tab (in particular, our blog posts on exams and mental health), and you can get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for a confidential chat with a mental health first aider.
- You are not alone!
