Sample CBEs

Thinking of entering for your CBEs?

Have you attempted the Sample exams yet?

There are two Sample exams for each CBE, which are the full 50 questions for Law and Ethics and the full 40 questions for Accounting.  

Please note that the sample exams will not be marked when you attempt them - record your answers on a piece of paper as you go along.

Once you have finished, check your answers using the individual links below.  

Remember that you can attempt the Sample exams as many times as you want to.  Why not reopen the Sample exam you attempted, look again at any questions you got wrong and find the information in the relevant manual to see why.

The Sample exams are a very similar set up to the CBEs you will receive in your real test and are hosted by Prometric.   They are both designed to show how the CBEs work and are also intended as technical exam practice.

The best way to get used to how to answer the CBEs on the day of your real test is to watch this tutorial video:

If you have not yet attempted the sample exams, please click on the links below.  When the screen opens saying "Enter Keycode", just click "OK" as a default keycode will automatically be entered.

You can check the answers to each of the Sample exams by clicking on the links below:
