How to obtain HKSI Hong Kong Securities and Futures Examination study materials?


Many students asked why there is so little information relating to The Licensing Examination for Securities and Futures Intermediaries. Whether you use Google or Baidu to search for information you will find that this examination is actually taken every day, but there are very few study materials available on the public channels regarding the exam.


There are several reasons for this to occur. Hence I hope everyone can gain a deeper understanding of this exam.


First of all, a very important reason for this to occur is because of legal reasons. Since this exam is a Hong Kong exam, it cannot be viewed from the perspective of Mainlanders. With that said, if you are interested you can read the study manual, and comprehend the official statement issued by the HKSI – the statement states that “past paper” is an intellectual property of HKSI. Since HKSI spent a tremendous amount of time creating the questions, therefore, we can’t disregard the intellectual rights and copy or use the questions casually.

Secondly, the lack of information has something to do with the overall population and market size in Hong Kong. Hypothetically, if the HKSI LE exam is conducted in Mainland China, you will see a ton of information as well as past papers posted on the public channels because after all, there are still 1.3 billion people in Mainland China. Since Hong Kong has a population of only 7 million. Although there are people taking exams every day, its market size determines that it is impossible to accommodate competitions among many tutorial book publishers.


In addition, why is the information so outdated? In fact, it is mainly because the update is not particularly easy, or the update is relatively slow, because the only way to obtain the past paper information is to arrange for a real person to take the exam, and then pay the registration fee of more than $1000 each time. In this way, if you take more than one subject, the cost is quite overwhelming. Even if a person is proficient in the subject, it is impossible to remember all the questions on the spot, nor can he recite the entire question by exact wordings, plus, he cannot take the questions out of the examination room. Since the ability of the brain is limited, it is hard for any person to absolutely memorize everything, hence the questions asked in the exam will rarely be leaked to the public, therefore questions that are worth for references are relatively less. With that said, the information provided on the internet or XX pass books series are very different from the actual exam questions themselves.  


Thirdly, if you are a Hong Kong person or have life experience in Hong Kong, you would know that information technology or e-commerce in Hong Kong as a whole is not so developed. Therefore, some information is not available online, including registration, hence one must sometimes register for things in person or by post, or even by phone. In other words, it will also be difficult to buy books online, therefore one will be better off buying the books in stores. In Hong Kong, people tend to depend on low cost tech tools. Fax, telephone, and post are more commonly used than online communication. In contrast, Mainland China uses more high tech technology when it comes to distributing exam prep related information, hence the information is easier to be obtained.   

So how do you get the information? The first method I think is the most convenient is through the HKSI study manual. After applying for the exam, you can log in and download it directly on the HKSI website.

The second method is to purchase practice materials through 2CEXAM. This organisation produces exam revision materials that allow candidates to pass the exam within a short period of time. We also provide online question banks, as well as a set of handouts summaries of the exam content; we additionally also supply video lectures free of charge; By using 2CEXAM’s revision materials, candidates not only will be able to conduct their revision conveniently, but according to our company’s internal statistics, our clients’ pass rates improved tremendously after using our company’s products. 2CExam has many years of experience in tutoring exams, and through conducting thorough research on exam information, we are certain that 2CEXAM’s exam prep products can help candidates save a lot of time in their exam prep journey.
