CIA Exam is Difficult
While the results for the first year of the IIA’s new Three-Part CIA Exam are not yet tabulated, the historical data from the previous year’s CIA Exam pass rates for Candidates in North America paints a very positive picture.
Pass rates for the 2012 CIA Exam, which was a Four-Part Exam, had pass rates in North America as follows:
Part 1: 52.9%
Part 2: 73.52%
Part 3: 53.09%
Part 4: 70.65%
When the IIA switched to a Three-Part Exam in July 2013, the overall content coverage between the two exam formats did not experience a drastic change in coverage, but rather more of a “reshuffling”.
As such, we expect first year pass rates of the Three-Part CIA Exam to average around 60% for North American Students, noticeably higher than the CPA Exam pass rates which are historically under 50%.
