3) Candidates with a degree in progress: If you initially enroll/register as a final year undergraduate student with a degree in progress, you may not register for the Level II exam until you have earned your degree, or obtained professional work experience that meets the program’s entrance requirements. When your degree is awarded, update your account education information to certify that your degree has been received.

CFA Exam Details:

  • The CFA Program includes a series of three exams that are offered in test centers around the world. These three exams — Level I, Level II, and Level III — must be passed sequentially as one of the requirements for earning a CFA charter.
  • You may register for one exam at a time. Once you have received your exam results, you may register for the next one. If you fail an exam, we encourage you to re-take it.
  • Exams are offered in English only, in order to ensure global consistency, both in administering the exam questions and in grading candidate responses.

CFA Exam Schedule:

  • Level I exams are offered in December and June (typically on the first Saturday). Level II and III exams are offered in June only (typically on the first Saturday).
  • Registration usually opens about 11 months before each exam; register early to take advantage of the fee schedule and to have enough time to study and prepare for the exam.

CFA Exam Content:

  • In general, for the CFA Level 1 exam you will be asked basic knowledge and comprehension questions focusing on investment tools, and some questions will require analysis. CFA Level 2 further emphasizes analysis along with application, while CFA Level 3 focuses on synthesizing all of the concepts and analytical methods in a variety of applications for effective portfolio management and wealth planning
  • The progressive nature of the three different levels means that CFA candidates should change their learning focus as they matriculate through the program. The questions at Levels II and III require higher-order thinking than the questions at Level I
