THE NEXT VERSION OF THE CPA EXAM (continued)
consistent with Exam launches in the past, there will be a delay in score
release following the close of the initial testing window (second quarter
of 2017.)
Scoring weights for AUD, FAR, and REG will be approximately 50%
MCQ/50% TBS while scoring weights for BEC will be approximately 50%
MCQ, 35% TBS and 15% Written Response.
Implementation of the Exam in 2017 will necessitate a cost increase
resulting from the additional hour in candidate seat time for each of the
BEC and REG sections.
The total cost includes application and administration fees, in addition
to examination fees. The cost varies for each jurisdiction and will be
available from NASBA and the Connecticut State Board of Accountancy.
(At the time of this publication going to press, Connecticut's updated
CPA Exam fees had not yet been posted.)
