What Should You Expect from Exam IFM?

Exam IFM is a 3-hour long exam that consists of 30 multiple-choice questions. It is a computer-based exam and each question has five answer choices.

This exam builds up your knowledge of the theoretical elements of corporate finance and financial models. Additionally, you become conversant with how the financial models are utilized not only in insurance but also other financial risks.

Each question is accompanied by 5 unique choices: A, B, C, D, and E. Given your right/wrong answer in each of the questions, you will be given easier or harder questions going forward. As such, each candidate will have a different set of 30 questions.

Here are the ten main topics and their weighting in the exam:

“Thanks to your program I passed the first level of the CFA exam, as I got my results today. You guys are the best. I actually finished the exam with 45 minutes left in [the morning session] and 15 minutes left in [the afternoon session]… I couldn’t even finish with more than 10 minutes left in the AnalystPrep mock exams so your exams had the requisite difficulty level for the actual CFA exam.”

The Premium package is cheaper and the questions are well answered and explained. The question bank has a wide range of examinable questions extracted from across the whole syllabus. Thank you so much for helping me pass my first CFA exam.”
