Exam Rules

At Tax Accountants Institute Pakistan (CTA), we conduct examinations in June and December. Exams for all programs are held at the end of each semester, with each subject exam lasting three hours and 15 minutes. Our exams are “open book,” allowing candidates to refer to study guides and materials provided on our online learning platform, My Online Learning. For Singapore Taxation, candidates may bring Tax Acts as referenced in the recommended texts section of the Singapore Taxation study guide.

For specific information on exam structure for each subject, please reach out to the relevant department.
