Institute news

CFA UK launched OnVUE Online Proctored examinations, enabling exams to be taken from home as of 1st July 2020. Students can choose to take their exam online or at a CFA UK Pearson VUE test centre (both subject to availability).

You should also note that to enable IMC exams to move to online, two changes have had to be made to the format of the exam. From 1 June candidates will no longer be permitted to use handheld calculators. Instead, an onscreen calculator (Texas Instruments TI-30XS or TI-30XB) will be provided. This applies to all candidates whether testing in a test centre or via OnVUE. Candidates should familiarise themselves with the onscreen calculator.

Candidates sitting via OnVUE will also be provided with an onscreen whiteboard. This only applies to OnVUE sittings. Physical erasable whiteboards will still be available for all candidates sitting in test centres.

An online exam demo incorporating the calculator and scratch pad (in the format of the Pearson VUE real exam) can be found on the Pearson Vue website.

For more detailed information including system requirements please visit the CFA UK website and the Pearson Vue website.


Impact on courses

IMC weekday and evening courses will continue to run per the published 2020 timetable, but will be delivered Live Online. Delegates will be contacted in the two weeks before their course with joining instructions, links for the sessions and printable course materials in PDF format.

End Point Assessments

I was due to sit my End Point Assessment (EPA) in the next few months. What do the exam cancellations mean for my Apprenticeship?

Your Talent Coach will be getting in contact with you, or do speak with your Kaplan Apprenticeship account manager to talk through your timeline and the impact of IMC exam cancellations.

Who is best to contact for help and advice?

If you have any questions or would like further guidance, please email our Client and Student Services team at, or for anyone on an Apprenticeship we recommend reaching out to your talent coach or Kaplan Apprenticeship account manager.
