The Level III exam is considerably the toughest exams for the CFA® Program, as many of the questions are posed in essay format. The key to success is to practice as many essay type questions as possible and master topics specifically related to portfolio management and asset classes.
CFA® Level III exam is divided into two parts:
As mentioned before, the target of the exam is on portfolio management and asset classes, but it also consists of three more topics viz. Ethics, Professional Standards and Wealth Planning.
The Ethics and Professional Standards takes as much weightage as in the other levels of the exam. The investment tools are not tested separately, except economics, which is a part of the portfolio management and wealth planning section for level III. The major part of the exam revolves around portfolio management and asset classes in the portfolio context.
Candidates need following criteria to become CFA® charter:
|Topic Area||Level III|
|Ethical and Professional Standards||10-15|
