FRM exam structure

August 29, 2014

The FRM Exam structure fundamentally has two parts — Part 1 and Part 2—that are both offered twice a year on the third Saturday of May and November.

FRM exam structure for Part 1 is an equally weighted 100 question multiple-choice exam offered in the morning of the Exam day and FRM exam structure for Part II is an equally-weighted 80 question multiple-choice exam offered in the afternoon of the Exam day.

It is important to note that Part I and Part II of the FRM Exam must be passed sequentially. Therefore, while it is possible to sit for both parts of the examination on the same day, a candidate must receive a passing score on Part I before GARP will mark his or her Part II examination. Most candidates elect to take Part 1 and Part 2 on separate Exam administration days.
