Before taking the HKSI LE securities exam, students need to do some preparations:


1. Registration

Students need to register for the exam on HKSI’s website first.


2. Download the study manual

Students can download it for free after registration.


3. Search 2CExam’s free video courses

Our senior tutors has navigated the main points of the exam for you throughout the classes. Students can search “HKSI Paper X class” (for example: HKSI paper 1 class) or 2C Exam.com to find related videos on Youtube.


4. For exam papers that need calculation, prepare or buy a financial calculator in advance

HKSI only accepts specific models of calculators. Unqualified calculators are not allowed to be used during the exam. Although the current computer-based exams also provide a financial calculator simulator, in order to be more familiar with and make good use of the built-in functions of the financial calculators to quickly obtain the answer while doing revision. It is recommended that students prepare/buy a Texas Instruments BA II Plus / Texas Instruments BA II Pro financial calculator for the exam.


5. Try to do the past paper published by HKSI in 2006 which contained 40 or 60 questions each paper

Although those past papers were published more than ten years ago, only a small portion of the questions were removed from the exam coverage. Most of which still have reference value. And there is no charge for this material.


6. Try the free mock question chapter at hksiiiqepasspaper.online

This website is an online mock question product. The first chapter of each test paper is a free trial and can be used without charge or login.


7. If you feel that it is not enough, you can buy mock exam questions from 2CExam or hksiiiqepasspaper.online

2CExam’s mock test questions are paid products. Since it is a profit-making organization, it will invest more resources and accumulate more experience in designing exam products, so it has a high reference value.


8. Check if you bring your ID card/passport before departure on the exam day

If you used your ID card to register when you signed up for the exam, you need to bring your ID card; if you used a passport when you signed up, please bring your passport with you. Students who do not carry valid identification documents will not be allowed to enter the examination room.


9. Stay healthy

Candidates with fever can’t enter the examination room!
