CPA Exam candidates are wondering what to do if their exam was affected by the recent earthquake on the East Coast or will potentially be affected by Hurricane Irene.
I contacted NASBA and here is what you need to know:
- Candidates are advised to contact their local testing center on the day of the exam to see if it is open. It is it is the responsibility of the candidate to try to test.
- Road conditions etc. may make it difficult or dangerous to get to the testing center and in these cases the candidate should email NASBA (email@example.com) and attach either a weather report or a newspaper clipping describing the conditions in the area.
- NASBA will then contact Prometric to ask them to clear the candidate's no-show status and assist them in rescheduling.
- If necessary, NASBA can extend a candidate's NTS.
