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 plan for each exam that you need to pass.
We have four packages to suit different needs, namely Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond.
Bronze plan gives you access to the practice questions only. You can do them unlimited times during a one-month period, and they come with answers and explanations.
Practice questions help you discover weak pockets of understanding so you can cover the gaps while learning.
Silver plan gives you 2 months of access to practice questions as well as two additional features: namely translated explanations and SpeedRef™. SpeedRef™ is an on-screen integration of the official study guide so you can quickly reference to it and save loads of time and hassles. You will also have access to E-Learning tutorials which are audio-visual version of the study guides. Silver plans (and higher) come with Pass Guarantee and a 2-month access period.
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!
The Gold plan gives you 3 months of access, and also to an additional product - Mathathon. Mathathon is an innovative product that generates infinite practice questions on Math-related topics to provide you with ample math practices. This plan also allows you to seek clarification or consultation from a virtual mentor via email. The Gold plan is the most popular plan and is of the most value.
The Diamond plan is like a Gold plan. Instead of being limited to 10 e-mails to the virtual mentor, you enjoy unlimited text or voice message exchanges with virtual mentors, such as seeking clarification or a walk-through on applying a formula. This plan gives you a 4-month access period.
We currently have a limited-time PayNow Promo which gives you more savings when you subscribe multiple plans in a single order. The subscriptions are charged on a one-time basis and will not be automatically renewed.
Each plan has its respective start and expiry date even if subscribed in a single order. Each plan will activate and expire depending on the date of 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.
