AUG 2024 SOON TO COME!
* Importantly, the 16-19 AUG exam window may vary depending on your test center or geographic area. What it means is that for your chosen test center, there may be fewer exam dates available, i.e. the exam window may be shorter. That is why it is significant that you check the test center info when registering for and scheduling your level 3 exam.
Below, you can find all AUG 2024 level 3 CFA exam dates related to registration and scheduling.

The registration window for the AUG 2024 level 3 exam opens on 14 Nov 2023. First, you need to register for your AUG exam, which means you need to pay the due fees.
AUG 2024 CFA exam registration fees go up. The early-bird registration fee is USD 940 (up from USD 900) and the standard registration fee is USD 1250 (up from USD 1200).
2024 CFA EXAM REGISTRATION FEES
The AUG 2024 CFA exam fees paid at registration are
USD 940 or USD 1250, depending on when you register.
After you register, you're bound to self-schedule your exam within the exam window available in your area. The scheduling deadline is not until 21 May.
There's a special registration fee for early birds and it's $940 (it increases for 2024 CFA exams!). It applies from 14 Nov 2023 to 23 Jan 2024.
Please note the special Pay-by-Invoice deadline that falls on 4 Apr for the AUG exam. It was set up for computer-based CFA exams and is now longer than the early registration fee deadline.
The standard registration fee for 2024 CFA exams is $1250 (which is higher than in 2023!). It applies from 24 Jan to 14 May 2024.
Remember that it is not enough just to register for your CBT CFA exam. Registration comes hand in hand with scheduling.
After you register, you're bound to self-schedule your exam within the exam window available for the AUG exam in your area. To this end, you'll need to use the so-called ProScheduler via a dedicated platform.
Importantly, scheduling is free of charge and the scheduling period is longer than the registration period. For the AUG exam, it ends on 21 May. If you fail to schedule your exam appointment, you won’t be able to take your CFA exam and you'll forfeit your registration fees.
A new CFA exam fee, called a rescheduling fee, has been introduced for computer-based exams. CFA exam rescheduling means that you can still change your CFA exam date and/or test center after you register for and schedule your AUG exam. You may change the date and/or test center as many times as you want but every change is going to cost you money.
2024 CFA EXAM RESCHEDULING FEE
For the 2024 CFA exams, the optional CFA exam rescheduling fee is USD 250 per each re-appointment.
How does CFA exam rescheduling work?
It may happen that the optimal-for-you exam date and/or test center is already taken at the time when you schedule your exam. But you will judge it reasonable to schedule your exam anyway. After that, you can go back and check your preferred test center for seating availability at your optimal exam date. As soon as it's available to you, you'll be able to make amendments upon paying your rescheduling fee.
CFA Institute intends to release level 3 CFA exam results in 6-8 weeks after the close of the exam window. So, the most probable CFA exam results date for the AUG 2024 level 3 candidates is 1 or 8 Oct 2024. As always, the Minimum Passing Score (MPS) will be established after the exam by the Board of Governors.
AFTER YOU PASS YOUR AUG EXAM
If you pass your level 3 exam in Aug 2024, your CFA exams are over! That's it for you – now you can become a CFA charterholder and member.
If, however, you fail your level 3 CFA exam, mind the rule of 6-months-between-exams according to which:
- if you fail your Aug 2024 exam the soonest you can retake your level 3 exam is in Feb 2025.
- (read more about the 2023-2024 CFA exams)
To pass your level 3 CFA exam, there are some things you need to know. For starters, the exam will be divided into 2 sessions, 132 minutes each, with an optional break meanwhile.
In your level 3 CFA exam, you may expect some item sets and some constructed response (essay) questions. Previously, essay questions used to be included in the first session of the level 3 CFA exam, while item sets comprised the second session of the exam. Starting in 2023, each exam session contains a mix of essay sets and item sets. There are 11 essay sets and 11 item sets altogether. So, in each session, you can expect either 6 item sets and 5 essay sets or 5 item sets and 6 essay sets. Read more about the new CBT level 3 CFA exam format.
