## Explanation of Calculations

The CFA Estimator Calculator uses the following factors to estimate your readiness:

**Average Studying Hours per Week:**More studying hours generally improve your chances.**Number of Weeks until Exam:**More time to prepare can increase your chances.**Expected Pass Rate:**This is your self-assessment of your probability of passing the exam.**Completion of Study Materials:**Higher completion leads to better preparedness.

## Limitations

This calculator provides an estimate based on self-reported data and general assumptions. It cannot account for individual variations such as study efficiency, exam difficulty, and unexpected life events.
