FRM Study Plan – Topic-wise time allocation chart

There is no secret formula that can help you navigate through the FRM program and pass the test, but an organized, disciplined approach will help you pass each level of the program and ultimately achieve your goal.

  1. Don’t waste time, get going: Allow a minimum of one week for each study session spread over several days, with completion scheduled for at least 30-45 days prior to the exam. This schedule will allow you to spend the final four to six weeks before the exam reviewing the assigned material and taking multiple online sample exams. Successful candidates report spending an average of about 300 hours reading and studying the curriculum, plus 4-6 weeks reviewing and taking online sample and mock exams.
  2. Skim through the material before starting: After registration, you will receive a curriculum that is divided into about 18 study sessions. Broadly preview each session to determine your familiarity with each topic.
  3. Develop your strategy: Get out your calendar and determine which weeks you will be studying which sections. Plot this on Excel, Outlook or a similar schedule-making program. Schedule your studying so that you finish with all the sections at least one month before the exam, so you can review. Also, schedule in review days as you go along.
  4. Make a review plan: A good review plan can augment your preparation by clarifying or pinpointing concepts you may be having trouble with Pristine has designed exam-focused classroom training & comprehensive reading material to speed-up your preparation which can reduce your exam preparation time from 300-400 hrs to 150-200 hrs!!
