  1. Hi, how can i contact with the supervisor of 300hours. I need more test bank about the CFA exam. Contact me, i really want to get more practice.

  2. Q16 doesn’t have the correct answer as an option to choose from, but in the email then shows the correct answer. Looks like the DP is in the wrong place. This made me worried for spending time doing the rest of the exam if the questions/answers don’t align.

  3. Good afternoon team, thank you so much for providing the mock questions to us inquisitive newbies. I would like to give the mock a go. Please could you share the answers to me as well?


  4. Do y’all have any data as to the difficulty of this exam compared to other mock exams (i.e. Schweser, Wiley, CFA Institute)?

    • Hi Will, no we don’t as there isn’t such a comparison to begin with. What candidates find difficult varies. IFT is a CFA Institute approved prep provider and we have looked and checked through their questions quality, variety and explanations. That’s why we are sharing it here as a free resource for ou rreaders.

  5. Hello, thank you for providing a free mock, i attempted it just now. I have one doubt, after attempting the mock on the google survey, it says i got 62 out of 90 correct but the detailed result mailed to me says i got 66 correct out of 90, can i get please get a explanation.

    • i figured it out, so some questions that i actually got wrong were shown as if i chose the correct option in the detailed result.
      300Hours please kindly look into it.

      • Hi prathamesh, thanks for letting us know.

        I’m rather scratching my head on this one. I’ve just submitted a test submission, replicating your answers exactly. Both on-screen scores and emailed detailed scores show 66/90 questions. However, your entry record DOES show that the on-screen score shown to you when you did it was 62/90.

        You mentioned that you figured out that some questions that you actually got wrong were shown as if you chose the correct option in the detailed result. Can you let me know which questions were these? That would help me hunt down what went wrong, otherwise I’m inclined to chalk it up as a weird tech burp.

    • Hi! We’ve not received a submission under your email address I’m afraid. The mock submissions seem to be working fine – if you resubmit you should get your analysis and detailed answers sent to your inbox. Hope that helps!

    • Hi Chirayu3, just continue scrolling down? We display all the questions in one page and you can only find the Submit button after completing 60 questions. Hope this helps!

  6. I submitted level 1 mock exam. I see the answers, but would love to have the explanations/calculations.


  7. Your practice tests with answers are highly productive contribution to our study. I shall be grateful if you could increase questions from 120 to 250.
