One of the most critical situations that need to be dealt with is 'Exams.' Exams are either being discontinued or postponed. However, even during these unpredictable times, the NASBA, AICPA, and Prometric just made an amazing announcement for all those hard-working CPA aspirants. The announcement is stated as follows: Testing for the CPA Exam at test centers in India will begin on January 1, 2021. This would probably mean a lot to all those aspirants who were having many confusions about the exams being continued in India.

We hope that the convenience of taking the exam in your country will ease some of your burdens while you think about your family, friends, and colleagues.

As of today, Indian applicants can plan to take any CPA exam section in the United States during the months of June and September 2020. We hope that Prometric's test centers will be open from 'here, and we will keep you informed of any developments. Here's what it means for you.
