CFA® Level II

Level II is often seen as the toughest technical level of the CFA Program, however with a solid grounding from Level I this next step is immensely rewarding.

In this level you will start to see the “big picture”, with economics, portfolio management and accounting delving into the issues of international investing.

Much of Level II focuses on asset valuation: you will see fixed income and derivative models that look pretty complex, but are, in fact, highly logical when explained in the clear and intuitive Quartic style.

Exams

The final paper-based Level II exam will be held in December 2020 in some locations. This exam is six hours long, split into a morning and afternoon session. You will be given 120 multiple choice questions (3 answer choices). At Level II the exam uses “item sets” or vignette-style questions, in which you are given some case study information followed by four or six multiple choice questions. You then have an average of 18 minutes per six-question set, 12 minutes per four-question set, split across two sessions and covering all ten topics.

From 2021, the Level II exam will move to computer-based testing with two exam windows in each year. In 2021, these will be May and August. The duration of the exam will be approximately 4.5 hours, with up to 90 questions in item set format. The exam will be split across two sessions and will cover all ten topics.

There are test centres in more than 170 cities around the world: for further information see the CFA Institute website for details.
