All CFA exam candidates know it. Others may not understand, but we do - the CFA exams are hardcore. The burnout is real.
Burnout happens when you simply do not have a drive to continue doing this crap any longer. Nothing goes in, and you may feel panicked, overwhelmed and unable to meet the study demands needed to pass the CFA exams. You'll also lose the interest and drive that led you to start the CFA Program in the first place.
