The computer-based Uniform CPA Examination is oered each calendar quarter.
These months of testing are known as testing windows.
The examination is not given at the end of each calendar quarter to allow for systems and databank maintenance.It is important that you plan accordingly; it is your responsibility to schedule the sections of the examination you have yet to pass so you do not lose credit for previously passed sections.
You can take any or all sections of the examination during any testing window and in any order. However, you may not take the same section more than once during any one testing window.
You should schedule your examination appointments as soon as possible after you receive your NTS. You must schedule your examination appointment at least five days in advance of the test date. To increase the likelihood that you receive your first choice of date, time and location, you should schedule at least 65 days before the desired test date(s). You must take each examination section within the time period for which an NTS is valid (before it expires). Your Board of Accountancy, NASBA, and Prometric are not responsible if you cannot schedule an appointment before a deadline expires in your jurisdiction.
