Exam Software *not relevant for September examinations
The CPA profession will provide you with a CPA-issued laptop to write your examination using Surpass (SecureClient). As a result:
- You will not be required to install the SecureClient on your laptop;
- You will not need to complete the SecureClient Activities;
- You will no longer be permitted to bring your own laptop to the examination writing centres; and
- If you prefer to use a mouse to write the exam, you will be required to bring a plug and play wired mouse to the exam as one will not be provided. The CPA-issued laptops come equipped with a built-in or external numeric keypad.
