CPA Evolution Transition Policy
In February 2022, NASBA announced their CPA transition initiative, which explains how CPA candidates who complete one or more sections of the current CPA Exam will transition to the new format of the CPA Exam when it is updated. Current CPA Exam candidates should not be affected. The launch date of the new CPA Exam is currently January 2024.
Here’s what you need to know:
CPA Evolution Basics
The new CPA Exam will test a “CORE” set of skills required for all candidates. The AUD, FAR, and REG sections will become CORE. In lieu of the current BEC section, candidates will choose a “Discipline” in which to demonstrate deeper skills and knowledge. There are three Disciplines, and candidates will only have to take and pass one of them:
- Business Analysis and Reporting (BAR)
- Information Systems and Controls (ISC)
- Tax Compliance and Planning (TCP)
The new CPA Exam is expected to be no longer than the current 16 hours and will remain split into 4 total sections, including the one for your chosen Discipline, and is currently slated to launch in January 2024.
Gleim’s in-house R & D team has already started working on and is much ahead of its competitors in developing the content to suit the higher level of knowledge expected by the examiners.
We have the largest question bank in the industry. Our question bank includes a variety of questions to cover all concepts to prepare you to face any type of question asked in the exam. We believe in the strategy of understanding “core concepts” rather than “hit-or-miss” strategy adopted by other course providers.
Practice is key to success in the exam. Our question bank software helps you to practice the questions in practice mode as well as study mode. Moreover, it provides you the analytical performance history to help you to concentrate on weak areas.
Our classroom delivery and transfer of knowledge is in small manageable units so that students have the flexibility of understanding the concepts with ease at their own pace. Our students are not over-burdened or overwhelmed with the quantity taught in a day.
We breakdown the material into small manageable units and delivered to students so that they understand the concept at micro level and complete the assigned homework before attending the next class.
The Gleim Review is so comprehensive and inclusive that it caters to all types of students. Some students like detailed explanation of concepts that helps in long-term retention and application; and some like mnemonics to help improve and assist the memory while taking the exam.
Concorde has a dedicated team of evaluators who pre-evaluate our students whether they are eligible to take the exam and if yes, from which state board of accountancy. This pre-evaluation step helped thousands of our students to devote their time, energy and resources on studies rather than worrying on the evaluation process which is too confusing and time consuming.
