The three exams of the ARPM Certificate can be pursued in any order.
The Level 1 Exam of the ARPM Certificate tests the following modules from the Body of Knowledge:

The exam includes theoretical questions as well as pseudo-code tests.
The exam is “open book”. Candidates only need a pen/pencil and paper. Candidates have unrestricted access to any materials, including the internet. Candidates are not allowed to communicate with each other in any format: any violation will invalidate the exam.

The exam is administered remotely online via remote screening technology.

The exam is graded according to the breakdown policy specified on the examination sheet. The grade for the exam is a number L1 in the interval [0,1].

Note: Throughout 2021 we will still offer the previous version of the Level 1 Exam, which tests Data Science and Financial Engineering for Investment.
