HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE CFA EXAM?Access the CFA Institute website, register and select one of the available exam windows in your account. You will be asked to submit your application form and make the payment.

Apply before the application deadline!

STEP 2: SCHEDULE (mandatory)

Can I pass the CFA exam in 12 months?

Yes, you can pass the CFA exam, all 3 levels, within one year, i.e. in 12 months!

12 months is the quickest way to get your CFA charter, but you must strictly adhere to the CFA exam schedule in which youcomplete your Level 1 CFA exam in FEB, then Level 2 - in AGO and finally Level 3 - in February of next year. That makes 12 months from level 1 to level 3 of the CFA exam. The assumption, of course, is that you pass all the levels on the first try and the part where you wait for the final CFA exam result no longer counts.

Other scenarios are just over 12 months. Now, with the CBT CFA exams, you canGet your CFA charter in 12 to 18 months.
