Only 30 questions from GARP online?

Hey all,

Are there only 30 questions online from GARP in their study center? I went through 30 questions in the “tests” section on their online module, corrected the questions I did. Afterward, I thought I would attempt another 30 questions right away…but I got the exact same questions.

Am I missing something here?


Difficulty of FRM as compared to CFA Level 2/3

Hi everyone, I am taking CFA Level 3 in 2020 and currently considering taking FRM in November of the same year. I am just wondering what the difficulty of FRM exams are like as compared to Level 2 or 3 of CFA. I managed to score exactly on 90th percentile of CFA Level 2 this past June(1st attempt), studied around 230~240 hours. I just want to get a glimpse of FRM difficulty for now so I can determine if I would take both Level 1 and 2 on the same exam day. Any constructive input is appreciated!

frm 1 and 2

Hi guys,

Am a bit new to the frm world. Can I check if its realistic to take both level and level 2 frm in November 2019 if I start preparing now? I am expecting a change of country/location coming up in the next couple of months. Not sure if I am being ambitious by trying to attempt both level 1 and 2. I don’t know what the timelines to start studying are roughly. Any guidance would be very useful for me.


FRM part I&II at the same time

Hi Guys

I just recently finished my Honours at a South African university majoring in Finance. I am hoping to take both levels of FRM in May 2019. I will not be working during the period from January to May and so I will have around 4 months to prepare. I’d like advice about taking both exams on the same day given my time constraints and my educational background.

Thanks in advance.
