Starting June 2016 a little light is shed on the CPA Exam "blackout months", giving you more days to take the CPA Exam! The exam blackout window (i.e. the days where you cannot sit for the CPA Exam, traditionally the month after every testing window) will be shorter as the AICPA has just announced they will open up the first 10 days of every blackout month to provide additional testing days.
"In order to accommodate the anticipated demand for test center seats, the testing window will be extended through the 10th of the third month of each testing window, beginning with the second quarter of 2016 (June 2016, September 2016, December 2016 and March 2017). During the anticipated launch window of the next version of the Exam (April-June 2017), the 10-day extension will be suspended.
Suspending the extension for the launch window will be necessary to allow time for the AICPA to properly calibrate the Exam for scoring. The 10-day extension will be reinstated for Q3 and Q4 of 2017."
