I am a first time applicant. I am giving my first exam which is FAR from MA. I had printed out the application from the nasba website for the first time applicant when I had applied for the NTS for FAR. It took about 8 weeks to get the NTS. I am all set for Oct 1. Now, I want to register for the second exam which will be BEC. But I do not know how to go for the NTS. Do I have to fill out the same application or can I go online and pay for the NTS. I know it took like 8 weeks for my first NTS since my credentials had to be evaluated. Does it take the same amount of time for the second NTS to arrive or will it be a lot quicker. Please advise.
It takes about 10 days to get an additional NTS (the first one is the only one that takes multiple weeks) in my experience in MA – my peers have had similar experience. I believe you can register right on MA’s NASBA page.
