Do you know your CFA® Program exam date? That might seem like a crazy question—who doesn’t know when they’re taking an exam? But, as you prepare to sit for the exam, time can get away from you. In the case of your CFA Program, it’s important to measure all of your preparation against exam day, ensuring you stay mindful of the time you have to study and prepare.

What’s Different about 2020?

In 2018, candidates were surprised to learn that exam day would not be the first weekend of June, as it had been historically. Instead, CFA Institute announced the exam would be held later in June to avoid conflicting with the observance of Ramadan. In 2019, the CFA Program exam date was mid-June. For 2020, the exam date is moving back to the first weekend of June.
