Series 50 FAQ
Can I take the exam even though I am not sponsored?

You must be sponsored by a FINRA member firm in order to take the Series 50. Learn more about sponsorship and consider the SIE exam if you aren't sponsored.

How many questions should I complete on the Series 50 Practice Exams before I take the exam?

You should complete a minimum of 800 practice questions plus the Benchmark exam to be ready to test. Strive for an average of 75%+ before your exam date.

Is there a lot of swap math on the exam?

There are a limited number of calculations on the entire exam. While there may be a swap calculation, it’s most important to understand and apply concepts rather than calculate outcomes.


What is the usual study time for the Series 50 exam?

Assuming you are working full-time while preparing for the examination, you should allow yourself 4-7 weeks or 50-75 hours to read through the material and complete practice exams. 

Should I expect to use the full time allotted on the Series 50 Exam?

Most students are able to finish the exam within the allotted time without being rushed.
