You can enrol in KAPE for $50. This includes three different versions of the practice exam.
On enrolment, you’ll gain access to three versions of KAPE with a different set of questions in each based on FASEA’s three knowledge areas. To offer more flexibility, you’ll be able to complete each version unsupervised without online proctoring, with one attempt for each version of the exam available.
KAPE is now delivered remotely. This means you can now sit KAPE in the comfort of your own home or office.
You’ll have 6 weeks from when your enrolment is activated to sit all three practice exams. You’ll have access to one attempt of each version of the exam available to you from the day of activation.
You’ll be provided with your individual results approximately one week* after you sit a version of the practice exam. Your results will be made available within KapLearn**. This will allow you to pinpoint possible areas of improvement prior to sitting FASEA’s Financial Adviser Examination.
Please note, you won’t be eligible for CPD points by completing KAPE.
*During periods of significant volume, this timeframe may be extended.
