New FCCA? Can I still take the paper version in April 2012?

  1. The advisor said that the end of this march is the cut off date for the paper version.
    I still have several exams to i can't finish them in 2 weeks.

    it takes two months just to complete the new version...and this one has three tests along the way and the final. If we fail the final...we have to go thru this two months process again.

    do you think that it is literally impossible now to take the old version, which only takes 10 days to finish? I mean..what if they find a bug in this this format and decides that they need to test it a little more?

    I think if they transition to the electronic one, then yes, you will not be able to take it on paper. This has been in the works for a long time, and they have had PLENTY of time to get it right.

    I'm pretty sure it will be rolling out as planned. I just got off the phone with the FCCA people and got signed up for my FCCA (4/10-19)!! I'm pretty stoked that I made it in under the wire, but she did confirm that march 30th was the absolute final deadline for the paper version. She also said that the cost is increasing from 270 for the paper to 450 for the computerized version.
