Can I enter for an exam during the initial registration process?

Yes. During the CTA-PAKISTAN online registration process, you will be given the option to enter provisionally for one of the next two examination sessions. Alternatively, you may enter for exams at a later date.

How long do I have to complete the exams?

You have ten years to complete all the exams – which starts from the date you registered as a student, not the date when you start taking exams.

Where can I take my exams?

You have the choice of sitting paper-based exams in any one of the exam centers around the world. More information on exam centers can be found at the office. Any changes to the available centers will be detailed on the website. Please note that, due to limited facilities being available at some centers, we reserve the right to transfer candidates to alternative centers. We also reserve the right, in exceptional circumstances, to hold exams at times and places other than those listed.

How many exams can I take at each exam session under Foundations in Accountancy?

There is no restriction to the number of exams you may attempt, allowing you to choose to sit as many or as few papers as you like at each exam session. You are, however, recommended to attempt a maximum of four papers in each six-month period.

Will I be able to sit my exams at the center that I have requested?

In the vast majority of cases, you will be allocated to the center of your choice. On very rare occasions, when demand exceeds capacity, CTA-PAKISTAN may have to allocate you to the nearest alternative center. You will be told about this on your exam attendance docket. In some cities, where demand is very high, students may be allocated to one of a number of different halls which make up a center. As these halls can be in different locations, it is important that you read the venue details on your attendance docket carefully.

I require special facilities at the exam center, is this possible?

CTA-PAKISTAN can make special arrangements for students who are disabled or have special requirements. If you require any additional support, please email your request (attaching up-to-date medical evidence).
