Course Overview

The Level III CFA exam is offered twice a year. Topics such as Quantitative Methods, Corporate Finance, and Financial Statement Analysis have been removed from the curriculum. Ethics, Alternative Investments, Derivatives, Equity Investments, and Fixed Income topics mostly preserve the weightings they were assigned in previous exams. Meanwhile, Portfolio Management and Wealth Planning topics weightings now comprise 45%-55% of the Level III exam.


The total duration is set at 4 hours and 24 minutes, evenly distributed into two sessions, with a permissible break in between. You will receive assistance swiftly during the exam from proctors if required, ensuring a smooth examination process.


All questions derive from vignettes, urging candidates to refer to them before crafting each answer. The topic areas cover a broad spectrum including, but not limited to Portfolio Management and Wealth Planning, which dominates 35-40% of the exam syllabus with several sub-topics.

Constructed Response (Essay) Format

  • Command words: Clearly identified in bold within the question stem to guide your responses.
  • Response: Candidates can use bullet points or paragraphs for articulation, with certain questions demanding a specific number of responses.
  • Scoring: Responses are assessed up to the number requested, focusing on the order presented by the candidate.

Item Set Format

Each item set comprises a vignette followed by four multiple-choice questions, each bearing 3 points. The questions are not standalone and are rooted in the vignette, emphasizing the application of knowledge in practical scenarios.

Mixed Distribution of Questions

The February 2023 Level III exam introduces a more balanced delivery of questions through both sessions, diversifying the distribution to include a mix of 6 item sets and 5 essay sets or vice versa. While the total of 11 essay and 11 item sets remains constant, each set carries a weight of 12 points, ensuring a comprehensive evaluation of your knowledge across different areas.

"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 exam 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 exam."

“I bought their FRM Part 1 package and passed the exam. Their customer support answered all of my questions when I had problems with what was written in the curriculum. I'm planning to use them also for the FRM Part 2 exam and Level I of the CFA exam.”

“I bought the FRM exam premium subscription about 2 weeks ago. Very good learning tool. I contacted support a few times for technical questions and Michael was very helpful.”
