FCA Exams - Securities & Regulation | London

Hi Monkeys,

I will be joining a BB for FT role this summer and as part of the training we need to pass the FCA Exams (Securities & Regulation). They set aside 2 weeks for us to study (Mon-Thu) and take exams on Fridays. Are 2 weeks sufficient to pass the exams? How long did it take you to familiarize with the material?

I am not necessarily asking to ace the exams, more like pass with the least effort possible. Would prefer to spend time sightseeing London, instead of deepening my knowledge of the UK regulation.

Thank you for your help!
