In "Describe the motivations for and calculate the capital conservation buffer and the countercyclical buffer introduced in Basel III, including special rules for globally systemically important banks (G-SIBs)." Within T7-R37-P2-Carey (appx. P.10), the notes state: total tier 1 capital equals 1.5% RWA of AT1 Capital is required to be 8% of RWA (=7%+1.5%).

I think this should in fact state that it's 2.5% RWA of AT1 capital, = 6% + 2.5%, per the fact that it's 2.5% that's added and not 1.5%.
