Q:

You are not permitted to bring in or consume any food or drink in the CFA testing room. The CFA Institute put this rule in place because many exam booklets were significantly damaged from spills in the past. Furthermore, in many testing centers, candidates share a table when writing. Thus, one person's spill has the potential to ruin another candidate's test.

After the first three hours of your exam, you are allowed a lunch break before the last three hours of your exam begins. The total time for the lunch break varies between one and two hours, depending on where your exam testing room is located. Contact your testing center for further information.

If you have diabetes or some other medical condition that requires you to eat food at frequent intervals, you must complete a "Disability Accommodation Form" and submit all required documents at least 75 days prior to your exam.

Medicine can be brought into the room and consumed during the exam, provided that it is kept in your pockets or underneath your chair.
