So, do you do practice questions?

Yes, we do but our focus is on ensuring you have all of the knowledge you need to complete the exam (not just an acknowledgement of what you do or don’t know).

We have exam style Q&As throughout all of our FASEA exam prep training and we provide you with a brilliant little answer guide after the training so you can better understand why the answers are the answers.

Our training walks you through the theory you must know, and importantly, how to apply that theory (because that's what the exam is testing).

About the FASEA exam

Existing advisers must pass the FASEA exam by 1 January 2022*. 

Important: the Government has announced that they will extend the cut‑off date to 30 September 2022 for advisers who have attempted the exam twice prior to 1 January 2022.

Exams will be marked to a credit level and the candidate will be awarded a “pass” or “fail” on this basis.

If you fail the exam, you need to wait 3 months before you can sit the exam again. Do not leave it until the last minute to sit the exam. If you have not passed the exam by 1 January 2022 you will not be able to continue to provide financial advice (unless you have failed twice prior to 1 Jan 2022).

About the exam:

  • 3.5 hour exam (including reading time)
  • Practical application of adviser knowledge in the following competency areas:
  • Financial adviser regulatory & legal obligations(Corporations Act chapter 7, anti-money laundering, Tax Agents Services Act)
  • Financial advice construction- suitability of advice aligned to different consumer groups, incorporating consumer behaviour and decision making
  • Applied ethical and professional reasoning and communication incorporating FASEA Code of Ethics and Code of Monitoring Bodies
  • Limited open book (statutory materials only)
  • The exam is at least 70 questions - At least 64 multiple choice questions and at least 6 written questions. 

*Treasury Laws Amendment (2019 Measures No.3) Bill 2019 , which received Royal Assent on 22 June 2020, provided an extension to the education requirements for financial advisers:

  • Complete the FASEA-approved exam by 1 January 2022 (one additional year); and
  • Meet FASEA's qualification requirements by 1 January 2026 (two additional years).
