What Does the Exam Software Look Like?


Familiarize yourself with CFA® exam software features by watching our software tutorial video. This same tutorial will be available to you on exam day. Please note, it is not intended to serve as a mock exam.

In preparation for your exam, visit your Candidate Resources to review exam policies and procedures. Please note:
1. All candidates must adhere to the CFA® Program Identification Policy on test day.
2. The name listed in your CFA Institute account must match the name on your passport exactly. With past exams, returning candidates may have been admitted with minor differences between the two. However, this will not be the case with computer-based-testing. Any name mismatch, including but not limited to typos, misspellings, nicknames, and suffixes not shown on the passport, will result in you being denied admission to the exam. We strongly encourage you to review your passport and update your CFA Institute account if needed.
For up-to-the-minute exam day and test center details, please visit the Test Center Updates page.

Be sure to confirm your appointment details, including the date, time, and exam center location on your candidate tile. Some appointments have been rescheduled due to COVID related restrictions.
