CPA Auditing And Attestation Question Bank Details : 

The AUD Exam is 4 hours long, though the candidate is not required to use all the allotted time, and consists of 72 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and 8 Task-Based Simulations (TBSs).

Of the 72 MCQs, 60 are operational, meaning they count toward the exam score, while 12 are pretested and do not count toward the exam score. Of the 8 TBSs, 7 are operational and 1 pretested. Other than scoring, there is no functional difference between operational and pretested questions and no sure way for the candidate to tell the difference between an operational and pretested question.

The AUD Exam is organized into five testlets – two 36-question MCQ testlets followed by a 2-question TBS testlet, then an optional 15-minute break that does not count against the 4-hour test time, then two additional TBS testlets of three questions each. Once a testlet has been submitted, it cannot be revisited.

CPA Auditing And Attestation Question Bank Details : 

The operational MCQs count 50% toward a candidate’s exam score. The operational TBSs count 50% toward a candidate’s exam score.

By default the first MCQ test let is of ‘Medium’ difficulty. The difficulty level of the next MCQ test let depends on the candidate’s performance on the first test let. The candidate will therefore experience one of the following MCQ test let difficulty sequences:

  • Medium – Difficult (candidate performed well on first test let)
  • Medium – Medium (candidate did not perform well on first test let)

Characterising a test let as ‘medium’ or ‘difficult’ refers to the average difficulty of the questions in an MCQ test let. There is not a binary ‘medium’ or ‘difficult’ value assigned to each MCQ. Rather, the difficulty level of each question exists on a numeric scale.

Credit awarded for MCQs is weighted by difficulty level, meaning more credit is awarded for getting a more difficult question correct than for getting a less difficult question correct. Therefore, a candidate with a difficult test let is not penalised for having harder questions, nor is there any advantage in having two Medium test lets.

It is still possible to pass the exam even with a Medium-Medium MCQ test let sequence. In these cases, good-to-excellent performance on the second MCQ test let and the TBS test lets is key to passing.

The assigned TBS test lets are pre-selected and have nothing to do with the candidate’s performance on the preceding MCQ test lets, nor do the TBSs within the TBS test let proceed according to performance on the previous TBS.

While an MCQ is either right or wrong, there appears to be partial credit awarded for non-Research TBSs. Research TBSs are graded as either right or wrong with no partial credit awarded.
