I want to schedule an exam:
To schedule a CPA Program or Foundation exam, you must first be enrolled in a subject with CPA Australia. Once you have enrolled, you will receive instruction from CPA Australia on how to schedule your exam. Exam appointments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend you schedule your exam as soon as possible to secure your preferred location, date and time, as available seats are limited in certain locations. Online proctored exams may also have limited availability across certain time zones. When scheduling an online exam, candidates can select their time zone to review availability in their region.
After you schedule your exam appointment, Pearson VUE will send a confirmation email listing your exam date, your exam time, the address and phone number of the test centre, and directions to the test centre, or full details of your online proctored exam.
