Other Noteworthy CFA Exam Updates

  • CFA Institute will freeze the 2020 CFA Program® curriculum for two cycles due to the postponement of the June exam. All candidates who take the exam in December 2020, or any dates in 2021, will use the current 2020 CFA Program curriculum.
  • CFA Institute will transition all Level I exams to computer-based testing in 2021. The December 2020 exam is the last paper-based exam for Level I candidates. CFA Institute is transitioning how candidates learn—and test since the investment profession operates in a digital world. 
  • Offering the exams in a digital environment will allow CFA Institute to model the competencies required of investment professionals. Because candidates expect a more flexible approach to exam delivery, CFA Institute will deliver by transitioning Level I exams to computer-based testing in 2021.
