Beginning July 1, 2020. Under the new Continuous Testing model, candidates will have the ability to take the Exam year-round, without restriction, other than waiting to receive scores from prior attempts of the same section or when there is a major change to the Exam.

We recommend a total of 800 hours to 1,000 hours of self-study including the classes spread over approximately 9 to 12 months.

The AICPA contracts with third parties to produce multiple-choice questions (MCQs), task-based simulations (TBSs), and written communications (WCs). Exam questions are created and vetted by experts in the fields of accounting, psychometrics, and test development.
Through the development process, these experts ensure that testlets and exam versions will be graded and scored equitably on a comparative basis. The AICPA is ultimately responsible for the creation and maintenance of the CPA Course Exam.

The CPA Exam is administered at prometric test centers in partnership with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). After you apply to your state board of accountancy, you will schedule and sit for your exam with Prometric.

The CPA Exam is scored in a largely automated process. MCQs, TBSs, and WCs are all graded electronically; however, WCs may be reviewed and regraded by human scorers if a candidate’s score is very close to 75. The human grading process can push the release of a BEC score back by a week or so.

The minimum CPA Exam passing score is 75 points, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to answer 75% of questions correctly in order to pass.
The CPA Exam is what is known as a criterion-referenced test, which means every candidate’s performance is measured against established standards to determine whether the candidate has demonstrated the level of knowledge and skill represented by the CPA passing score.
The CPA Exam is not curved in the traditional sense. Every candidate is held to the same standard. The AICPA uses Item Response Theory (IRT) to figure out the relative value of MCQs and TBSs. It rates questions according to three statistics:

    Difficulty – whether the question is generally easier or more difficult for candidates
    Discrimination – how well the question differentiates between more able and less able candidates
    Guessing – the chances of candidates answering the question correctly just by guessing

The calibration for the automatic grading of WCs is done using the input from a network of volunteer CPA readers. This process ensures that scores from different exam forms are comparable. Again, if a candidate’s BEC score is close to 75, WCs may be restored by human graders.
Using the collected data, the AICPA is able to extrapolate scores from different exam forms that accurately represent candidates’ knowledge and skill levels. These scores are comparable because, to put it simply, difficult questions are worth more points and easier questions are worth fewer. It is entirely possible for two candidates to answer the same number of questions correctly and have slightly different scores.
The scores from each testlets are then multiplied by the policy weights:

    50% for multiple-choice and 50% for simulations for AUD, FAR, and REG
    50% for multiple-choice, 35% for simulations, and 15% for written communications for BEC

Finally, the aggregate score is mapped to the 0 to 99 scale used for score reporting.

A Notice to Schedule (NTS) is the authorization sent by NASBA) for an applicant to make an appointment with the testing provider once the examination fees is paid. Once the CPA Exam application has been processed, and a candidate is eligible to take CPA Exam, the NASBA will issue a Notice to Schedule (NTS) to the candidate.

Your NTS will be valid for a specific period of time. This time varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. In most of the states, it is valid for 6 months whereas for a few it has 9 months validity. Candidate must sit for the examination before his / her NTS expires. The expiration date will be mentioned on the NTS.
