To finish testing or start testing or stay in ARE 4.0 you will need to request this from NCARB by Nov. 1, 2016.
You do not need to have scheduled or tested to request eligibility.
Rolling clocks are still in effect based on the earliest exam passed.
June 30, 2018 is the last day ARE 4.0 will be delivered.
All candidates will be considered 5.0 after Nov. 1 unless you have requested to NCARB to stay in 4.0 by November 1.
You may transition to 5.0 on Nov. 1 or anytime afterward.
Pass rate very likely will stay similar to 4.0.
