Remote ARE Testing to Start on Nov. 16, NCARB Announces

Candidates for the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) should be able to schedule online-proctored appointments starting Nov. 16, the National Council of Architectural Review Boards (NCARB) announced Sept. 1.

Candidates can still test in-person at Prometric test centers, NCARB added. The ARE’s content and division structure won’t change, but “aspects of the exam’s delivery are being updated for both in-person and online administrations to increase exam security and provide a more efficient experience,” NCARB said.

Updated ARE Guidelines and a new demo exam are likely to come out in October. “These changes will maintain the exam’s rigor, while providing candidates with greater flexibility and accessibility,” NCARB said.
