Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why are only papers from the last two or three sessions available?

A: For non-multiple choice examinations, all examination papers and test specifications are made available after each public examination sitting and remain until they are replaced after a further two (or in the case of CF5, three) sittings. This allows candidates who have taken an exam to match the feedback they receive to questions in the paper and to match those questions to the syllabus. This, in turn, allows candidates to focus their studies for future examinations. In addition, new candidates can gain a free example of the exam format and recent exam questions.

The examination guides from the two most recent sittings are available to purchase on the website. Examination guides include examiners comments and key points for inclusion in your answers. The content of the latest Examination guide is also included FREE within the Revision Mate online study tool, provided with a study text purchase. In addition older versions of Examination guides are available for free to members on the Knowledge Services website.

Q: Why does CF5 have three papers available while other units have two?

A: CF5 has more frequent sittings than other units.

Q: What is the test specification?

A: The test specification details the areas of the syllabus that are tested by each question in the examination.

Q: Why do some units have only one paper up while others have 2 or 3?

A: Papers have been uploaded from April 2009 and will remain in accordance with the archive policy.

Q: Why do only some of the papers have matching test specifications?

A: The test specifications are being phased in, starting with the Diploma in Financial Planning units from the July 2009 sitting. From the October 2009 session all the papers, for all units other than Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning units, will be uploaded with a corresponding test specification.
