The IMC is assessed through online testing using standard multiple choice, item sets and gap-fill style questions.
Exams are delivered via computer based testing at centres administered by CFA UK’s testing partner, Pearson Vue.
The CBT walkthrough below enables candidates to experience the testing experience prior to taking their actual examinations. Candidates will be able to navigate through the test and become familiar with the functionality available to them.
Please note: although this demonstration mimics the IMC examination that candidates will see at the Test Centre, this is a sample test consisting of 18 questions designed only to allow candidates to familiarise themselves with the functionality of the live exam. However, it is not a live exam, will not be scored and candidates will not receive a pass / fail result at the end of CBT walkthrough.
Similarly, candidates will not be asked to complete a survey on their testing experience as they would normally be asked to do at the end of their exam. Explore the CBT walkthrough.
New from 1 December 2018 (Syllabus Version 16)
For candidates being assessed from 1 December 2018, the live exam will feature new highlighting and strikethrough functionality.
Candidates can familiarise themselves with this new functionality in the CBT walkthrough.
If you are testing prior to 1 December 2018, this functionality will not be available.
