About Deep 3 CFA

Although I do work with some first-time CFA Level 3 candidates, the focus of this program is to work with CFA Level 3 re-takers who have failed using alternative study methods and help them overcome this last hurdle.

Academia has been a passion of mine since I first remember stepping into a classroom. Along the way of my academic pursuits, I noticed students at times diverging away from their passions due to hurdles such as the CFA, GMAT, MCAT, DAT or actuarial exams.  Being an academic at heart, I decided to delve deeper into why I was successful when writing these exams but others could not seem to connect the pieces to end up with a high passing grade. I started by teaching the MCAT and actuarial exams where I noted two primary concerns that needed to be addressed for unsuccessful students, which were:

  1. Memory retention lacked in comparison to the top candidates.
  2. An inability to simplify the more complicated material.

Having tackled these issues using a methodical and strategic method for those exams, I eventually developed Deep 3 specifically for CFA Level 3 candidates. We focus on application rather then passive reading to enhance memory retention. Working with hundreds of candidates who were re-taking the exam, I was able to develop material notes that simplified the complicated.

With Deep 3 and you as the candidate, on board, we can overcome this final exam hurdle and keep your passions aligned and on track for your next aspirations.

Why Candidates Choose Deep 3 CFA

In-Depth Essay Marking

Right from week 1, we will jump right into having the essays marked.  Writing a properly structured essay takes a significant amount of time. We begin building a foundation for essays and continue to refine/strengthen this foundation week after week.  Candidates will scan and email their essay responses and I will provide in-depth responses to solutions.  In many instances, candidates leave correct answers but the solutions can be refined and made more efficient.  I provide feedback whenever I see fit and do not merely just grade the essays.

  1. If you don’t pass the CFA Level 3 exam, I will reimburse the full amount of the program registration fee. Unlike other CFA classes that will only allow you to re-take their program, I will return all your money for this course. Now, considering I only take on a limited number of candidates each year, my program is only successful if my candidates as a whole are successful.
  1. More importantly then the financial reimbursement for CFA Level 3 candidates, I allow you to compare programs. Unlike other CFA classes which give you one or two trial classes, I will not pressure you to stay registered with Deep 3, even if a couple months have passed. If you decide not to continue with the Deep 3 program, I will also return your money. Since most of my candidates are re-takers, I want to alleviate any additional stresses, such as what prep provider to choose, so I allow for an extended trial period.

 How am I able to offer this?  I have the utmost confidence in this program and believe you will too after attending and participating in the courses. Due to the overwhelming success and feedback from my past candidates, I have no issue offering these incentives to help encourage candidates to join the Deep 3 program.

On Call Instructor Access

Unlimited on-call access
to course instructor

CFA Level 3 is a unique exam, where a hands-on instructor approach is highly beneficial.  I always limit the number of candidates I accept to ensure full on-call availability.

I know everyone has their own studying habits, so if you’re working on material and have a question – I want to be able to help answer it while you are motivated to learn and still in that frame of mind. When you want to learn but are unable to work through or get an answer to a question, it can stop you in your tracks – you can’t move forward and end up being unproductive. I want to avoid that altogether when candidates are working on material. That’s why I provide my candidates with my email and phone number to reach me at any time.

Providing on-call instructor access helps keep candidates motivated when they are studying and preparing questions so the time you have designated to working on material is not lost but beneficial.

Personalized Learning

A custom personalized
learning experience

Not only do you have access to me to help guide you through questions or concepts but I am proactive about mistakes and errors I see early in the process. I can easily identify candidates who are running into issues since I am marking essays weekly. If I see a candidate struggling in any area, I spend personalized one-on-one time with that student. In the past, I have spent hours of one-on-one time after essay submissions to help identify and correct any issues early in the process.

Let’s face it, while we may all hope for a straightforward year ahead, life is not always straightforward. At times personal issues may arise.  I ask candidates to loop me in, when possible, about what’s going on in their lives. We will work together to layout a strategy when there may be some road bumps or blocks that arise in your life. We work together to develop work arounds to ensure that we stay on track and reach the end goal of passing CFA Level 3.

Forum

Ask questions, get answers and connect with other candidates on the Forum

I have found forums and communication to be instrumental with building confidence leading up to exam day. With re-taker candidates being many Deep 3 candidates, having other candidates who have dealt with similar stresses communicating about their own experiences and process is very beneficial.

Speaking with other candidates in a similar situation helps deal with the adversity of re-taking an exam. It is also more fulfilling and that much sweeter to share your joy and happiness once you have successfully passed.

The forums are also instrumental for further discussing concepts and any questions among your peers.  I am always be available, but a peer forum provides another layer of resources and may deepen your understanding of material, as well as increase your confidence.

Gurmeet Gill

CFA Instructor

Along with teaching actuarial exams, CFA exams, DAT and MCAT, I am an avid math junkie involved in mathematical research with universities throughout Ontario, Canada.  I’ve worked in the New York area as an actuary and lived in London, United Kingdom working on consolidating the actuarial exam process between the actuarial governing bodies.  Everything always brought me back to teaching and working with candidates pursuing their own academic and career paths.

Basketball is a passion of mine and a helpful stress release. I would always jump to the basketball court when I was experiencing moments of anxiety when studying to write any of the numerous exams I have. I still go play ball when life seems too stressful or I need a break. That’s where the inspiration for the name Deep 3 drew from – my love of basketball.  Below you can watch a “Deep 3” I hit at the Air Canada Center – Home of the 2019 NBA Champs “Toronto Raptors” (It’ll happen!)

Harmonize your various passions to further inspire each — to truly see them come to life.
