What Should You Expect about Exam FM from the Society of Actuaries?

Exam FM is a 3-hour long exam that consists of 30 multiple-choice questions. Just like the P exam, it is a computer-based exam.

The exam focuses on mastering the rudimentary aspects of financial mathematics used in valuing financial instruments such as bonds and interest rate swaps. Knowledge of calculus and an introductory knowledge of probability is assumed. There are 8 board topics listed below. Each topic has several learning objectives around which the exam is concentrated. An examples of a learning objective would be: “Given sufficient information, calculate the market value, notional amount, spot rates or swap rate of an interest rate swap, deferred or otherwise, with either constant or varying notional amount”.

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 8 main topics and their weighting in the exam:

Topic Weighting (%)
1 Time Value of Money 10-15%
2 Annuities/cash flows with non-contingent payments 15-20%
3 Loans 10-20%
4 Bonds 10-20%
5 General Cash Flows and Portfolios 15-20%
6 Immunization 10-15%
7 Interest Rate Swaps 0-10%
8 Determinants of Interest Rates 0-10%

Testimonials

“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.”

“Before I came across this website, I thought I could not manage to take the CFA paper alongside my busy schedule at work. But with the up-to-date study material, there is little to worry about. 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 papers.”
