Q:

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) indicates that if your first language is not English, you may request a time extension for your exam. In some cases, you may also be able to write a version of the exam that is in your first language.

  • Your name.
  • A statement that English is your second language.
  • Be printed on your sponsoring firm's or employer's letterhead.
  • Date of the exam.
