CFA Eligibility...plz help


Student - IPCC

Hii,

I am currently in FYBcom

I'll be appearing in my Final Year University Exams in April'13.

I have read the eligibility criteria at the CFA institute Website...but got lil confused.

It says "Final year of graduation at the time of registering"

So i just wanna know when CAN i appear in CFA L1 Exam...Dec'12, June'13 or Dec'13...??

Please clear my doubt.

Thankyou

Harsh

Hi Harsh and Jaideep,

 

First I get along with Harsh's question... Harsh, I assume your Final year would begin from June/July 2012. The eligibility for CFA Program offered by CFAI, US demands you to be atleast in the final year of your Bachelor's program. This means you may freely appear for Dec 2012 examinations. Best of luck for that... !

 

Now for Jaideep.... It's good that you wish to appear for CFA examinations but the eligibility demamds you to be atleast in the Final year of your Bachelors degree programme. I suppose, IGNOU has some kind of MoU with ICAI and it treats IPCC passed students as having completed graduation after an examination which the university conducts every year. So If you are not at all registered in any bachelors degree programme please contact IGNOU in this regard for attaining a Bachelors degree without which you will not be eligible for CFA Examinations.

Yes, CFA Institute has alotted New Delhi as a centre for L1 exams in India. Other centres in India are Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Mumbai. Centes in India are alotted only after a judicial verdict issued by the Delhi High court every 6 months. This is due to a conflict concerning CFA Institute and ICFAI.

To appear for the exam (level 1), one needs to be atleast in the final year of his/her bachelors or must have atleast a 4 yrs of professional exp.

 

you will earn your charter once you have obtained 4+ years of experience in investment industry (even if you have passed all the exams).
