Accounting CPA & ATC (KASNEB)
The CPA examination is held twice yearly in June and December. The examination is divided into three parts of two sections each. Each section consists of three papers. A candidate may attempt two sections in a part together or separately in ascending order but before proceeding to the next part, a candidate must pass the lower part.
The examination is
rigorous and standards are high and therefore a candidate is advised to
devote approximately the equivalent of eighteen months of full time
study for each part of the examination. Ideally therefore, a
student should be able to complete the CPA examination in between four
and a half and six years.
