Here’s what CPA continuing students should know

KASNEB August sitting exams will commence on 30th August and end on 03rd September. That is 10 weeks from now.This duration is more than enough to make you well prepared for exam. August sitting will be examined under current syllabus.

Do not let the syllabus change worry you such that you decide to wait for it.This is because once new syllabus will be launched, KASNEB will roll out a smooth transition guideline for continuing students into the new syllabus. This means that continuing students will be required to take only the units that they have not done in a level during old syllabus.

Additionaly, where units like Management accounting and Public finance and taxation(currently section 2) have been shifted to intermediate level, no student will repeat the units once at that level provided that he/she took the units and passed when under current syllabus.

Another case is where a unit like Quantitative analysis, currently at section 4, has been shifted to foundational level. Here,you will do that unit if you did not take it under current syllabus.

The best thing is to ensure that you are on board for August sitting so that the smooth transition guideline for continuing students,which may also involve setting a grace period,favours you.
