The IFT morning (essay) exam mock is provided in PDF format.
It is recommended that you use a PDF editor and write the answers on the answer sheet (PDF) that we provide which then can be compared to the solution given, or can be submitted for the IFT Grading service (if purchased).
To date, CFA Institute has not provided us with the exact simulator of how the exam will look like in the real exam. This is the first time they are making the essay exam fully online - therefore we have provided this in PDF format.
Here is a free PDF editor which you can download: https://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf-reader/
