Level I Online Mock Exams

Practice taking the computer-based test before exam day with the Online Schweser Mock Exam. These realistic exams simulate the interface, format, difficulty, and length of the actual CFA exam—helping you develop your test-taking skills, identify your weak areas, and demonstrate your mastery of the CFA Program curriculum. Afterward, view answer explanations, check your score compared to those of other candidates, and drill deeper into each question with our Mock Exam Tutorial. Each full-length mock exam uses a unique set of questions that replicate the difficulty for Level I of the CFA exam.

The Online Schweser Mock Exam features:

  • Three modes: 
    • Exam Sim: Take the exam using the actual interface you’ll encounter on the computer-based CFA exam.
    • Online: Take the exam using the standard Kaplan Schweser online interface.
    • Print: Take the exam on paper and enter your answer choices in an online answer form.
  • CFA Institute's time limits of 4 hours 30 minutes (each exam consists of two sessions of 2 hours 15 minutes)
  • CFA Institute's topic weightings and exam format
  • Online answer explanations
  • Online scoring and performance tracking by topic area with a comparison to other candidates
  • Answer explanations that include LOS references for every question
  • Exam Tutorial
    • Available for Mock Exams 5 & 6 only
    • Detailed video explanations of how to arrive at each of the answer

Mock Exam Options:    

  • Mock Exams 1-4: Four unique sets of questions with three attempts per exam
  • Mock Exams 1-6: Six unique sets of questions with three attempts per exam. Mock exams 5 & 6 include the exam tutorial
  • Mock Exams 5 & 6: Two unique sets of questions with three attempts per exam. Mock exams 5 & 6 include the exam tutorial

Note: The system allows three attempts per mock exam. You cannot switch exam modes after beginning an exam.

Exam Sim allows you to take the computer-based mock exam in the interface used on exam day.


Time Limits

Exam sim uses the same time limits and built-in breaks that CFA Institute uses on the exam; however, you do not need to follow these constraints. These serve as a guideline to you in order to replicate the exam as closely as possible. When the timer hits zero, you can continue completing the mock exam without a time constraint.


Answering Functionality

Answer, skip, flag, and filter questions exactly like the actual exam. This type of practice helps improve efficiency in completing the exam under the time constraints set on exam day. You must answer all questions on the mock exam in order to complete each section. Once you complete both sections of the mock exam, view the detailed results report using our Exam Tutorial.

“Kaplan mock exams are right on par with the difficulty of the actual exam. Their question answers and explanations are also clear, in-depth, and provide additional insight into the broader problem area addressed.”

"My professor recommended to me Kaplan materials, including the live mock. These made all the difference. I walked in to the final exam with confidence knowing success was my only expectation."
