ASIC names dates for first 2022 FASEA exam
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has announced the first sitting dates for the financial adviser exam for 2022, with the first sitting scheduled for Thursday and Friday, Saturday and Monday the 17, 18, 19 and 21 of February.
The regulator, which takes control of the exam from 1 January, said that to facilitate the administration of the exam it had entered into a contract with the Australian Council of Education Research (ACER) – the same organisation which assisted FASEA.
“We are working with ACER to finalise Sitting 17, Sitting 18, and Sitting 19 of the financial adviser exam for the remainder of 2022. Including the February sitting, there will be three financial adviser exam sittings taking place before 30 September 2022,” the ASIC announcement said.
“During 2022, examinees sitting the first three exams can choose to sit the exam in an exam centre or through remote proctoring. From 1 October 2022, exams will only be available via remote proctoring.”
It said candidates who sat the exam in November 2021 may request a re-mark of their written responses if they do not pass the exam. Applications for a re-mark will be due by 31 December 2021. There are no extensions available for this deadline. Results from the re-mark will be released by ACER in January 2022.
