Instruction set for appearing AMFI Certification Exam

This post will be useful for the candidates appearing for the AMFI Advisor Course Certification Test. If you are a new visitor and want to know what is AMFI Advisor Module Course then I would request you to please visit my earlier post on Career Planning in AMFI Certified Mutual Fund Advisor.

Here I will now list down the important instruction sets that a candidate must follow before giving the AMFI Advisor Test. As you know both written and online tests are available for this course. I personally would prefer to go for online test as it is fast and gives immediate result.

Important points to be remember are as follows
1. Calculators are allowed during the examination.
2. Candidate should carry a valid photo identity card such as PAN card, Driving License, Passport, Voter’ s Identity card, employer’s identity card etc.
3. The AMFI test paper would comprise questions aggregating 100 marks and the minimum mark to be scored by a candidate to be declared qualified is 50. Time duration of the exam is 90 minutes.
4. There will be penalty for wrong answers by one-fourth (25%) of the marks allotted to each question.
5. You have the option to skipping Questions.
6. Do not guess maximum questions.
7. Don’t Attempt ALL Questions unless you are confident.
8. But don’t attempt only 50 to 60% paper only as it will lead you to unsuccessful.
9. Be careful about the negative marking.
10. Read Googly & tough questions two times.
11. Attempt enough MOCK tests before appearing for actual test. Give AMFI mock test & AMFI model manual test as much as possible before appearing for AMFI exam. You can make use of the Mock Test questions I have uploaded in ISC Question Papers section. AMFI Model Mock Sample Tests
12. Read question twice before attempting it & try to understand the logic.
13. Do not try to guess all 2 marks category questions.

So I request all candidates appearing for the AMFI Certification please read the above points and understand it clearly. My experiences if I share then I have attempted all the questions listed in question paper section for AMFI Test and then appeared for online exam. As an online test is of 90 minutes, I have attempted the exam just in 30 minutes and scored 70% marks. So mind well the exam is objective type with multiple choice questions similar as given in mock tests. You just concentrate on the language and try to understand before you give answer.

All the Best for AMFI Advisor Certification Module Test
