Virtual Exams: Convenience, Security and Safety

Due to the uncertainty and impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and our concerns for the health and safety of our candidates, proctors, and team members, we have decided to proceed with the 2021 exams in a virtual format. We are excited about this opportunity because it allows candidates to take the exam in any location so long as it complies with our technical requirements and exam rules.

What the FMI Virtual Exams Means for Candidates

  1. The exam will be securely administered within a virtual environment, with the same high standard of proctoring and exam integrity that apply to the FMI’s in-person exams
  2. The exam format will remain a hands-on, challenging test of your financial modeling proficiency, conducted within Excel. Access to external assistance or resources during the exam is strictly prohibited.
  3. Exam time: The exam writing time is 4 hours however please allow additional time before and after the exam for proctor check-in and check-out.
  4. The exam can be taken at your choice of location, provided that it complies with the exam rules and the minimum computer and internet speed requirements. Please see technology requirements below. 
  5. There will be a virtual check-in process. A proctor will verify your identity and inspect your exam environment to ensure that the integrity of the FMI’s closed-book exam is maintained
  6. Further details will be provided to registered candidates closer to exam date.

Before you register, please make sure that your computer and internet speeds meet the minimum requirements below. Please also ensure that you have secured a quiet, distraction-free location to write your exam.
