C++ for FE


Well-Known Member
Is a prior knowledge of finance (black-scholes, monte-carlo methods etc.) required for the last part of the C++ for FE course?
No. In fact, this is a direct quote from the instructions for level 9.

"It is not expected to have the full financial or mathematical background to the enclosed formulae; the focus is on being able to program these formulae in C++."

Thank you.
Also, how many times can the final exam be given? And what happens if it cannot be cleared on the first try?
You can only take the final once. In our experience with thousands of enrolled students, it is rare that someone that has advanced to the final exam will fail it. It is accumulative of all the levels prior to it.
