CFA Exam day Checklist 2021

Do’s & Don’ts just before your Exam

Things You Must Carry

  1. Valid Passport  –  ensure that the passport has not expired and it contains your particulars exactly as submitted to the CFA Institute. 
  2. Calculator –   you may carry extra batteries and a screw driver in case you want to be extra-prepared for a bad luck.
  3. Face mask  – wear it at all times. Avoid masks with exhale/one-way valves. Carry a spare mask.
  4. Confirmation number – there’s no admission ticket. You’ll be required to give your confirmation number received on your email.
  5. Others – necessary articles like eyeglasses, medication can be taken along and need to be kept on the desk in full view. 

Things You Shouldn’t Carry

  1. Books, notes, scratch paper etc. are a strict no-no in the testing room.
  2. Personal belongings that you bring with you on your test day such as your jewelry, wristwatch, mobile phone, wallet, bag, etc. must be kept in a locker outside the testing room.
  3. Food/drinks can be kept in the locker and you can have it during the break. Eatables are not allowed in the testing room.

Final Tips :

  1. Make yourself aware of the location. Plan how you are going to commute.
  2. Leave for the exam center well in advance. You need to reach your test center 30-mins before scheduled time.
  3. Avoid any kind of gadgets or other unnecessary stuff as you’ll have to pass through  inspection and the more stuff you carry, the more will be your waiting period.
  4. In case you are experiencing flu or cold-like symptoms or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14-days, don’t go.

All the Best….!!
