Exam eligibility numbers 

If you are a new financial adviser, or a foreign adviser, ASIC needs to assess your eligibility to sit the exam before you can book for an exam. If ASIC determines that you are eligible to sit the exam, you will be issued with an exam eligibility number which you must use to book for the exam.

To make sure new financial advisers are issued an exam eligibility number in time to book for an exam, their AFS licensee should apply for an exam eligibility number through the ASIC Regulatory Portal no later than 15 days before the last day of the booking period for an exam. For Sitting 20 the deadline is 15 January 2023.

Foreign advisers can apply for an exam eligibility number by emailing ASIC at
