2019 CFA Level II CFA Exam Structure(2019年CFA二级考试形式和结构)

Exam Structure and Timing(考试结构和时间安排)

The Level II exam has a total of 20 item set questions:

Morning session:10 item set questions[上午考试部分内容:10个道案例问题]

Afternoon session:10 item set questions[下午午考试部分内容:10个道案例问题]

On the Level II exam,you will have a total of 120 items(20 vignettes with 6 items each)compared to 240 multiple choice items on the Level I exam.[在二级考试中,您将共有120个项目问题(20道题,每个项目6个问题),而一级考试中有240道题。]

The Level II exam is worth 360 points,corresponding to the number of minutes on the exam.The 120 Level II items are equally weighted,3 points each,with no penalty for incorrect answers.

On the Level II(and III)exams,some topics are covered in the morning session only and other topics are covered in the afternoon session only.

Exam Question Format(考试问题格式)

When you prepare for the Level II exam,remember to review the Level I question format details for multiple choice questions.This same question construction applies to the multiple choices presented in item sets.

Item Set Format

Item sets are sometimes called“mini-cases.”Each item set on the CFA exam consists of a vignette(or case statement)and six multiple choice items(questions).

The length of a vignette ranges from about 1 page to 2.5 pages.The average length of the vignettes on the exam is about 1.5 pages.The longer vignettes are those that include several tables of information,such as for a financial statement analysis,statistics,or fixed-income item set.

The six multiple choice items in each item set can only be answered based on the information in the vignette.Hence,the items are not free-standing(as in Level I),but are drawn from the vignette.You will need to read the vignette before answering the items,and you will need to refer back to the vignette for information.The six multiple choice items can be answered independently of each other,but they do require information provided in the vignette.

Examples of Level II Exam Questions(二级考试问题的样例)

See some examples of Level II questions below,but remember that the exam is based on the current curriculum.You can expect to see similar questions in terms of structure,format and level of difficulty,but don't expect to see the same questions repeated on future exams.

2019 CFA Level III CFA Exam Structure(2019年CFA三级考试形式和结构)

Exam Structure and Timing(考试结构和时间安排)

The Level III exam consists of item set and constructed response(essay)questions:

Morning session:Constructed response(essay)questions(usually between 8 and 12 questions,each with several subparts)with a maximum of 180 points.(The point value for each question is provided in the exam book.)

Afternoon session:10 item set questions

Exam Question Format

When you prepare for the Level III exam,remember to review the Level II item set question details.

Constructed Response(Essay)Questions

Each essay question has two or more parts(A,B,etc.)and one or both of the following types of designated answer pages:

One type of answer page is an unlined page,clearly labeled for that question part.You are free to write your response as needed on that page.

The other type of answer page has a structured set of boxes.The boxes are clearly labeled for that question part and provide a visual structure to guide you in writing your responses.

Your Essay Exam Book

Read and follow the instructions on the front cover and throughout the exam book.

Page one of the exam book lists all the questions on the exam as well as the topic and the minutes allocated for each question.

The heading where a question begins states the number of parts in that question and the total number of minutes allocated.For example:“Question 2 has two parts(A,B)for a total of 18 minutes”

Instructions in bold print immediately following the question direct you to the designated answer page for each question part.For example:"Answer 2A on page 17”

Examples of Level III Exam Questions(三级考试问题的例子)

Below are examples of Level III item set questions and an actual 2015 Level III essay exam with guideline answers.You can expect to see similar questions in terms of structure and level of difficulty,but don't expect to see the same questions repeated on your exam.Additionally,the format of the answer pages for each question may change from year to year.
