LFFLM (GFM or SOM) COVE: free of charge.

Remark requests: £160.00. We recommend candidates request further feedback first, which’s free of charge. Note that should the result change from “fail” to “pass” after a remark, this fee will be reimbursed.

* The first 60 first-time entrants to the Part 2 LFFLM (SOM) exam, from the time of inception of the DFCASA, will continue to be supported with a grant of half of the fee cost, so that the cost to them is only £340.00. Please note that this is for the first attempt only.

** It is important to note that candidates who choose to sit both the GFM and SOM Part 2 MFFLM exams will be asked to sit both short-answer-question exams (SAQs) on the same day. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. And the same thing will happen on the OSCEs day, which will be the day after (i.e. one OSCE in the morning and one in the afternoon). So it is a very demanding couple of days for those candidates.

† Since March 2016 (including the candidates who sat their Part 2 Examination in that session) it has been possible for MFFLM Part 2 candidates to keep their successful result (either SAQ or OSCE/OSPE), as long as their Part 1 result is still valid. First time Part 2 applicants must apply for both components.


Part 1 and Diploma Examinations are held once a year, in mid-October. They all normally take place from 10:00 to 13:00 in Central London.

Part 2 Examinations are held in mid-March. The SAQs normally take place from 10:30 to 13:00 (or from 10:30 to 13:00 or 14:00 to 16:30, in case any candidate is sitting both GFM and SOM papers).

For the OSCEs (GFM and SOM), candidates are expected to be available either all morning or all afternoon (as a rule of thumb, who goes first depends on the number of applicants for each: the exam, GFM or SOM, that has fewer candidates will usually take place in the morning). Please note that other factors might interfere in the AM/PM choice. OSPEs candidates normally sit their exams in the afternoon.

For specific dates, please visit the page of the exam you would like to sit (DLM, LFFLM (GFM), LFFLM (SOM) and MFFLM).

The application period opens around four months before the exam date (s). Candidates then have four weeks to apply for the exam. For more information and to apply please visit the main Exams page of our website: https://fflm.ac.uk/exams/.

Results are normally published four weeks after the exam date (s).
