When trying to schedule for my level 1 exam in November 2021, I could not find CFAINSTITUTE as a test sponsor under the drop-down bar, however I have no issues with checking availability. Am I too early or there is some technical issues here?
How long will it take for my eligibility or authorization to test to be downloaded into the system so that I can schedule an appointment to test?
Please note that not all test sponsors require eligibility, therefore, you may be able to test immediately. For those programs requiring eligibility, the files are downloaded and test appointment scheduling is available within 48-72 hours of receiving authorization from the test sponsor.
Ah I see, I only signed up for CFA test today, it’s my first time so I didn’t knew about the 72 hours before availability of test scheduling. Thank you so much for the clarification, hopefully I would be able to smoothly schedule the test date soon.
No problem – it’s new to everyone so you’re not by any stretch the only confused one.
