    Important instructions and reminders for taking the RMM Exams.   Please Read!


    Do Bring:

    • A calculator. Many Exam questions will require it and calculators are NOT provided.
    • Two sharp pencils and scratch paper. There will likely be some on hand, but I wouldn't risk not having one, and you shouldn't either.

    You will be asked to put away:

    • Cell phones/tablets/laptops. I cannot stress this enough. You may not use your cell phone or tablet as a calculator. You may NOT have your cell phone or tablet out during Exams. Noncompliance will result in being asked to leave the Exam and your candidacy as an RMM will be reviewed. No exceptions.
    • Study resources. This is a CLOSED book Exam. You are not permitted to have anything other than scratch paper and your Exam out.

    Some other helpful info:

    Exam time allotted - 1 1/2 hours - 90 Minutes


    Approval from the Registrar is needed to register and sit for the RMM Exam.
