Step 1 – Registration
To access CMFAS Academy’s content, you need to sign up for a free account. Our free content includes bite-sized explainer videos. You can log in directly using your Facebook or Google account, or create an account using your e-mail address.
Step 2 – Subscribe to a learning package!
Head over to the Subscribe section and pick a suitable package for each exam you need to pass.
We have four packages to suit different needs, namely Basic, Success, Elite, and Biz.
Basic package gives you access to the practice questions only. You can do them unlimited times during the subscription period, and they come with answers. Most come with a reference back to the official study guide as the explanation.
Practice questions help you discover weak pockets of understanding so you can cover the learning gaps.
Success package gives you access to practice questions as well as E-Learning tutorials. Learners can go through the tutorials at their own pace. All packages come with Pass Guarantee and 2-month access period except for the Basic package (1 month).
Pass Guarantee means getting reimbursed for your re-test fee if you fail the exam despite meeting the criteria, such as clearing at least 90% of the practice questions. To have cleared a question means having answered it correctly at least once before. For example, if there are 500 practice questions for your package, there must not be more than 50 questions that you had never answered correctly before. If you miraculously fail again, we will refund you all your money! No risk at your end!
Elite package gives you access to an additional product - Mathathon. Mathathon is a patent-pending engine that generates infinite unique practice questions for Math-related topics to provide you with ample math practices. Elite package is the most popular package and is of the most value.
Biz package offers everything plus an online coach. You get coaching via email such as getting clarification or a walk-through on applying a formula.
We currently have a limited-time PayNow Promo which gives you more savings when you subscribe multiple packages in a single order.
Each exam package has its respective start and expiry date even when purchasedd in a single order. Access period will only start count-down upon activation.
Step 3 - Start Learning!
Note that IBF/SCI will only provide you with the study guide after you have booked an exam date. We encourage you to plan early and follow your study plans to avoid rushing and flustering in the days approaching the exam date. The estimated study time for each exam are indicated in the table on the Pricing page.
If you have access to E-Learning tutorials, go through at your own pace. Then, start doing the practice questions to test your understanding. If you notice weak spots, refer to the study guide provided by IBF/SCI for a detailed explanation. We recommend using the PDF format because you can search for keywords.
Question sets marked as "Premium" are suitable to be taken as a simulated exam. Do them only when you think you are almost ready for the exam. Time yourself and use the “Exam Mode”.
Step 4 – Exam Day
If the exam requires you to bring a calculator, make sure yours is in working condition and it is the allowed type and model. Plan to arrive early for the exam because the exam centre will deny entry to latecomers!
After you pass your exam, do drop us a thank-you note! We’ll greatly appreciate it!
If you fail, we'll reimburse the re-test fee. If you fail again, we'll refund you your money.
Pitfalls to avoid
Focus on one exam and pass it before moving on to the next. Refrain from studying for more than one exam simultaneously.
Do not try to memorize the question or answers to practice questions. You should evaluate your understanding and learn as you do the practice questions.
Lastly, do not use un-dated materials downloaded from the Internet. Exams update regularly, so you must use the most current materials. All content on CMFAS Academy are reviewed regularly to ensure they are up to date.
