Read more about how to increase the likelihood you'll pass the Level I CAIA® exam.

The CAIA exam pass rate for Level I is estimated to be about 60%. However, only 40% of candidates who begin the program actually earn the charter. You can greatly improve your odds of success by learning from other candidates’ experiences and avoiding common study mistakes.

Access to online products for the March & September 2022 exams expires on October 31, 2022.

Kaplan Schweser releases a new version of products every year as the CAIA curriculum changes. Shared use is strictly prohibited.

The Level I CAIA exam is 200 multiple-choice questions. The exam length is four hours. There are 100 questions in the first two hours, followed by a break, and then 100 more questions in the last two hours.

 
CAIA Association recommends that candidates spend 200 hours studying for the CAIA exam. And, you should do that over a period of a several months. Cramming in the last few weeks for the exam won’t work. The topics you’re being tested on require a type of knowledge that can only be gained over a structured, careful course of study—not last-minute, frantic reviews of core materials.
