Preparation for the CPA Canada CFE, step by step Nexam is the bilingual platform that is the most adapted for accounting exams

Exam session planning

In class or remotely, schedule exam periods based on case study testing duration, proctoring needs, and individual accommodations. Registered candidates are then assigned to sessions and will have access to the exam at the agreed-upon time.


Your case studies, including multi-level correction grids, are integrated on Nexam to allow test taking, correction, and feedback in a 100% digital format.

Invitation to candidates and graders

Registered candidates and authorized graders are invited by email to activate their Nexam accounts. Candidates can access a practice simulation to familiarize themselves with the test-taking environment.


Graders will only have access to the exams assigned to them. An anonymous correction mode can be activated to eliminate any possible bias. Different training courses are offered; ask our team for more information!

Testing Simulation

Nexam offers candidates a 100% online test-taking environment without any downloading, including text editing tools and access to spreadsheets. During the CFE, candidates have access to limited resources such as the CPA Canada Handbook, the Income Tax Act, and the formula for calculating the present value of tax savings… All tools are accessible in Nexam!


Nexam supports solving multiple case studies by providing a role-specific writing context for days 1, 2, and 3 of the exam. A timer starts when the exam begins and tells candidates how much time is left, allowing for better time management.


Recurrent and repetitive, grading can become a very intellectual ordeal. Take advantage of the correction grids adapted to the assessment opportunities (AOs) and the different competency levels suggested by CPA Canada.

Simplified results analysis

Download a summary of comments and results before the grades are published. To ensure the integrity of the process, validate the surveillance videos and similarity scores with the answer key.



Nexam offers concrete tools for enhanced feedback: in-text annotation, jury tips, personalized comments, performance by competency, etc. The writing can be downloaded in PDF format upon publication of the corrected exams or viewed directly on Nexam.

Efficient annotation and feedback tools

Provide your candidates with personalized feedback in a much shorter timeframe.

Testimonial from a former student and grader

While preparing for the CFE, I had the opportunity to do my simulations with the help of the Nexam platform. It is a constantly improving platform to meet students’ needs in the best way possible. Because of this platform, we could even simulate our exams during a pandemic.  Technical support is always available if there is a problem, which I greatly appreciate.

– Océanne Guyon, candidate for the practice of the CPA profession


The program manager reports that:

The graders are also delighted with the Nexam experience. It helps me with recruitment. Here, by the way, is a message from a Day 1 grader (they are rare and hard to come by):

“I just wanted to thank you for the summer session; you have an excellent correction tool.”
