Despite the switch to online delivery, some characteristics of the NCA exam are unchanged. They are long response form, and they are open book. Only hard copy study materials will be permitted; you will NOT have access to electronic copies of your notes or textbooks. 

To help NCA candidates’ transition to typed online long form examinations, the NCA will allocate an extra hour, or four (4) hours in total, for completion of each exam. This extended time applies ONLY to NCA examinations written in July and August 2020. 

Please note that any form of scanned document or photograph attachment will NOT be allowed. Only responses to exam questions entered using a keyboard will be considered as an answer. 

Prior to the August exam period, the NCA will also provide access to an online demonstration site of the exam formats and presentation, to provide you with the opportunity to experience the online environment.
