Exam Details
The CPAS-Technical and CPAS-Clinical exams each consist of at least 50 multiple choice questions and have a 30 minute time limit. The CDIP and CPSA exams each consist of at least 100 multiple choice questions and have a 1 hour time limit.

Your exam can be canceled or rescheduled at no charge as long as it is more than 24 hours prior to your scheduled exam. If you reschedule/cancel within 24 hours, our proctor company, Examity, will charge you $5.00. Examity also charges $5.00 if you want to use "priority scheduling", i.e. within 24 hours of purchase. If you don't show up for your scheduled exam, Examity will charge $20.00 before you are allowed to reschedule. Note that these fees are NOT part of your test purchase from PARCA.

IMPORTANT: You will need to purchase your new exam from the PARCA website PRIOR to paying Examity and scheduling your new test.

All exams require a minimum 70% score for passing. Upon failing, a candidate can purchase a second attempt within 6 months at a minimal charge. If the candidate does not pass on the second try, he/she may purchase a 3rd attempt for the full charge , but he/she may only take the exam a maximum of 3 times within 12 months. The exam questions will be selected randomly from a pool of questions, therefore providing always unique, different questions for the majority of the cases.
