My grandma, 89, is taking L2 this year. She just requested a seat close to a power outlet so she can plug her artificial kidney. So no, you’re not too old.
Oh and she insists she’s a Level 3 candidate. β€œAsk the CFAI if you don’t believe me”, she says.

I would like to share a feeling about my
motivations in pursuing the charter.
Sometimes, I think I am too old for CFA!
I am 36 years old and still willing to learn
something new, but… some nights, after a long
day at work, I find it very difficult to study for
the exam (level 1) and I chew over my age and my
declining memory.
…
Well, if you want to do it, do it. You can’t do it at age 25 anymore, so the choice is between doing it now, do it later or not doing it at all. You might want to read up on study techniques though, like the SQ3R method. Sign up for some classes (live or on-line) if you think that would help. The declining memory thing could also be about not using proper study techniques; when you’re 17 and still in school you can use brute force and simply study the night before any exam, cramming, an exam which in all likelihood covered only a limited amount of stuff anyway, so there wasn’t much use for a techniqueif you were fairly smart you could get by anyway. It’s different now: the stuff one has to learn for the exam is both huge and fairly difficult and must be mastered in detail. Maybe you belong to the β€˜fairly smart’ category (many people do) so you didn’t actually have to bother about learning any study techniques back then, and now you just don’t have the right technique to assist you.
Views, anyone?
