Once you’ve enrolled in a CPA Program subject, your next step is to schedule an exam via My CPA Program

Once exam scheduling opens on Tuesday 14 July, we recommend you schedule your exam as soon as possible. This gives you the best chance of securing your preferred exam date and time.

Candidates in most locations across the globe* will have the choice between two exam options this semester:

Your Exam Options

*Candidates sitting an exam in Mainland China, Japan, Slovenia and South Korea are advised that exams will be delivered exclusively in test-centres. Learn more

Upon entering My CPA Program, you will see the options available in your region. For both online and test-centre exams, you will need to book an appointment. Find out more about your exam options here.

If you do not schedule your exam by the advertised closing date, CPA Australia will schedule you into an exam appointment on your behalf and you may not be able to change it. 


Exam dates 

CPA Program exams are held at the end of every semester. View the exam period for the current semester in important dates.

Due to the secure nature of the exam process and the large number of exams that are conducted globally each semester, alternative exam dates are not available. If the advertised dates are unsuitable, you should consider deferring your exam to next semester.

If you are enrolled in Singapore Taxation, your exam is on a fixed date and time, and there is no flexibility. If you’re unable to sit your exam on that day, consider deferring your enrolment to the following semester.
