Is it possible to sit for a section of the CPA in one window and then again for the same section in the window that immediately follows? I want to maximize my chances of passing while the information is fresh

Yes it is possible as explained above, how do you think most of us got our licenses? 😂


I’m pretty sure they got rid of testing windows so it’s continuous testing. But if you have a valid NTS which only takes like 2 days to get once you’ve gotten the first one, you can take it whenever. But pretty sure you can’t get a new NTS until you get the scores back of the section you failed. But look at the score release schedule and take the exam at the end of it to get a fast score turnaround so you know if you need to get a new NTS


No I don’t think so because you need a valid NTS and I don’t think they give you that until your score is posted

Yes. If you are asking if you can take the test in a window. Get your score back having failed, immediately but coupon / NTS and schedule to sit in next window yes. This is what I have done a few times. Does depending on if they process everything fast enough and there are testing time at prometrics available tho.

I have called both my state board and nasba quite a few times. Here’s what I’ve learned that might be helpful to you 1. NASBA will not process a new NTS if the first one expired until three days after the expired NTS (I accidentally let one expire stupid move on my part). They will only allow you to have one at a time per test. 2. My board will not process a coupon payment if the score is not marked fail, it usually takes about 24 hrs. (Virginia) 3. If you buy two coupons from your board they will show up on one NTS for NASBA and you have to pay the whole thing at one time.

How do people in your company view your digital / agency group (I.e. Deloitte digital, McKinsey digital, Accenture interactive)? I’d say at Accenture, interactive is highly respected and given a lot of attention. Many of our big acquisitions have been in this area as well as some of our coolest projects and credentials. Also as opposed to Accenture strategy where it might be someone’s 5th choice to go to, interactive tends to be people’s first choice given our mkt position
