  9. 9. CMT Level III Specification • The CMT Level 3 Examination is a four-hour essay examination that consists of independent questions worth a total of 240 points. These questions have sub-questions within them. Therefore one question may have several parts which call for independent analysis linking that analysis to well supported conclusions. • The primary focus of the Level 3 exam is the practical and ethical application and integration of technical analysis. In other words, all past requirements and background knowledge will be tested in an application format. All candidates must pass and achieve at least a 70% score on ethics. • A candidate will not achieve a pass for the CMT 3 exam unless or until the ethics portion of the exam is passed. Based on information provided by MTA, the point system is predicated on the curriculum and objectives of the Level 3 exam. • The Test Specifications Committee did not assign specific percentages to the knowledge domains; however, the Committee members did discuss the potential test focus in terms of a loose ranking of the knowledge domains from “major focus” to “minor focus”. At the present time, Prometric is involved with the administration, but is not involved with scoring of the CMT Level 3 Examination.
