GARP EXAM POLICIES

How can I defer my registration?

A candidate can defer their Exam registration once to the next Exam date. Second deferrals will not be considered. A deferral to the next Exam date must be submitted by the last day of registration. There is a $150 fee to defer. Please log in to your account and go to “My Programs” and click on the deferral button

What are the deferral deadlines?

A candidate can defer their Exam registration once to the next administration. Once the deferral deadline has passed, requests for late deferrals will not be considered, nor will second deferral requests. The deadlines are as follows:

  • May Administration – April 15, 2020
  • November Administration – October 15, 2020

Important Notes about Deferrals:-

  • There is a $150 administrative processing fee to defer.
  • As a deferred candidate you will automatically be re-enrolled in the next Exam.
  • If you have deferred and still attend the Exam, the deferral fee will not be refunded.
  • If a candidate defers their FRM Exam Part II but fails the FRM Exam Part I, the FRM Exam Part II will be converted into a Part I registration, once Exam results have been released.

Note: Due to the timeline in which the October 2020 scores will be released, candidates are not permitted to take an exam in October and also take an exam in November. As such, a candidate deferring their October 2020 exam must reach out to GARP at memberservices@garp.com for assistance in moving their exam to May 2021.

Can I cancel my deferral?

Yes. If you registered and PAID for the FRM Exam and later deferred your registration to the next administration and now wish to re-enroll in the current administration, there is a US$150 fee to change your deferral status.

What is GARP's Identification Policy?

A current, original, and not expired government issued passport or driver's license is accepted. The name on your admission ticket must match exactly what you will present on Exam day. The passport or driver's license must include a photograph of the candidate - photocopies are not acceptable.

There are NO exceptions to this policy, regardless of what form of identification a candidate may have used in past Exam administrations. If a candidate arrives on Exam day without a valid passport or driver's license, they will not be allowed to sit for the Exam.

GARP administers its exams in approximately 90 locations in more than 50 countries. Because all of the different forms of identification that are used worldwide, which differ greatly from country to country and from culture to culture, we cannot list all forms of identification that are not acceptable. We require that all candidates must abide by this same rule, worldwide. Additionally, GARP will not accept work/employer identification cards, voter's identification cards, a learner's permit, student ID cards, PAN card, or national ID cards.

A Special Note: If a driver's license is used for admission, it can only be used in the country of origin; otherwise, you must arrive with a valid passport.
