The CFA exams for all the three levels have undergone some major changes after the start of the pandemic. The CFA exam for Level I, Level II, and Level III used to be for a longer duration as compared to now. The current duration for the Level I CFA exam, Level II CFA exam, and Level III CFA exam is 4 hours 30 minutes each with the morning session being 2 hours 15 minutes and the afternoon session being 2 hours 15 minutes. Earlier the exam duration for the Level I CFA exam, Level II CFA exam, and Level III CFA exam was 6 hours each with the morning session being 3 hours and the afternoon session being 3 hours. The CFA exams have completely changed to a computer-based examination format from 2021 and no more paper based examinations are offered by the CFA Institute for either of the Levels. 

There are two registration categories namely, Early registration and Standard registration. The difference between the two is that the dates for exam registration under the Early registration category start well in advance with a discounted CFA exam registration fee.
