New CIA Exam Format effective July 2013 (from 4 Part to 3 Part)


new cia exam formatThe CIA exam format has been changed from 4-part to 3-part exam effective July 2013.

I continue to receive questions on Part 4 of the exam and how exemptions are now applied to the new CIA exam format. Here is an explanation of the transition and the current rules.

Current CIA Exam Format

The IIA eliminated the recognition credit provision previously applicable to Part 4. This means that the exemptions are no longer relevant.

There are also some changes in the CIA exam content as a result, with some of the exam sections in the old Part 4 being merged with those in Part 3.

You can visit this page for the current CIA exam syllabus for Part 1, 2 and 3.
