Waiting for FRM exam results can be an anxious experience.
This isn’t quite helped by the latest vague guidance by Global Association of Risk Professional (GARP):
Once an exam window closes, GARP scores the exams in a timely fashion. Candidates are notified when their results are available in their GARP candidate portal.GARP on when FRM exam results are released
To be helpful, here are our predicted FRM exam results dates in advance for 2021 exams.
When will my FRM exam results be released?
Knowing when your FRM exam results are released in advance may help you relax post exams, so you don’t have to be constant high alert about that subject.
We also asked GARP directly for more details on the exam results release schedule and grading process. Here’s what they said:
“Results from the May 2021 and July 2021 Exams are expected to be available approximately 8 weeks after the close of their respective exam window.
After an exam window closes, GARP combines the candidate responses from all exams and exam sites globally and begins a thorough analysis of item and exam performance in order to determine a minimum passing score.
Following industry best practices, this is a rigorous process and involves multiple steps to ensure item and exam quality as well as fairness for all tested candidates. Once this is complete, a determination of which candidates passed and which did not is performed and their results along with quartile rankings are communicated in a timely fashion.“

With the new computer-based (CBT) exams from 2021, the trend is similar, if not slightly faster (~ 7 weeks).
So here are all our predicted FRM exam results dates for 2021 exams:
- FRM Part 1 Jul 2021: 13 September 2021
- FRM Part 1 Nov 2021: 17 January 2022
- FRM Part 2 Dec 2021: 31 January 2022
How we predict the FRM exam results dates
Given the COVID-19 disruption and FRM exams switching to computer-based testing (CBT), we have shown the recent historical dates of FRM exam windows and the corresponding results days. We’ve also added in our latest predicted exam results dates.

Predicting based on a consistent results day pattern
In pre-2021 paper-based FRM exams, we were able to predict results days consistently.
With COVID-19’s disruption and the new CBT format, all bets are off!
So we have focused heavily on the latest May 2021 exams results pattern as a guide for the first, non-postponed CBT exams. For our predictions, we have assumed a ~7-week post exam window results announcement day, on a Monday.
Hopefully as computer-based exams become a norm, we should have more data to be able to understand if there’s a reliable new pattern for FRM’s results announcement.
