During these unique and challenging times, we understand CPA Exam candidates in India are concerned about their testing options. The Coronavirus pandemic continues to affect all of us in ways we could not have imagined.

Amid this disruption and in response to numerous Indian candidate requests, NASBA, AICPA and Prometric are pleased to announce that Continuous Testing for CPA Exam candidates at test centers in India will begin January 1, 2021. Candidates may begin to use the scheduler on November 2, 2020. Under the Continuous Testing model, candidates will have the ability to take Exam sections, 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. Continuous Testing will replace the existing limited CPA Exam Testing Window model, which only permits candidates to test in India during designated time frames.

The 55 U.S. Boards of Accountancy support the move to Continuous Testing in India, as it positions candidates to retake sections while information is top of mind and may shorten the time needed to complete the four-section Exam. This shift to a Continuous Testing model in India signifies the power of alignment among state boards, NASBA, AICPA and Prometric as these organizations continue to support Exam candidates on their journey to CPA. Candidates are asked to visit NASBA’s website to confirm that their Board of Accountancy has transitioned to the Continuous Testing model. Several Accountancy Boards have not yet shifted to Continuous Testing, but still allow candidates to test each section once per calendar quarter.
