The CFA Exam dates and deadline are pretty much the same every year: exam is scheduled every June for all levels, and every December for Level I only.
The June exam in 2018 was held 3 weeks later than normal – June 23 instead of the first Saturday of the month.
In any case, the CFA exam opens its registration a year before, and early bird closes 9 months before the exam date.
The next available exam will be held in December. This is applicable to Level 1 exam only:
There are a few points to consider. For example, do you have enough time to study for Level 2 next June? You won’t know the Dec exam results until late January.Click for the Pros and Cons of the Dec Exam
