New Syllabi for CPA Board Exam Effective May 2016


Three (3) months ago, we published an article entitled “Revisions in the CPA licensure examination” which discussed the main changes in the Certifoed Publiac Accountant (CPA) Licensure Examination subjects (from 7 to 6), including the Table of Specifications (TOS) for the 6 subjects.

On January 29, 2016, the Board of Accountancy (BoA), finally issued BoA Resolution No. 275-2015 and released the TOS for the 6 subjects.

Here are the details of the TOS for the six (6) new subjects:

The Board of Accountancy, in its Facebook Page, announced the issuance of the BoA Resolution No. 274-2015.


The details of the syllabi for the six new subjects of the CPA Licensure Examination are now available in BoA Resolution No. 274-2015. This will define the coverage for the CPA examinations starting for those which will be offered on May 2016. The examination is scheduled on May 11, 12, 15 and 16 this year. The examination venues are Manila, Baguio, Cagayan do Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo and Legaspi. The deadline for registration for the examination is on April 18, 2016.

In another post, the BoA quoted “The details of the Table of Specifications (TOS) for the six new subjects of the CPA Licensure Examination are now available in BoA Resolution No. 275-2015.”

Copy of the BoA Resolution No. 274-2015 is posted below.
