The April 2016 exam administration  will be the last NCEES Principles and Practice of Surveying (PS) exam offered in the pencil and paper format. After next April, the exam will be offered only in the Computer Based Testing (CBT) format just as the Fundamentals of Surveying exam is now. Registration for the computer based PS exam will begin in mid-2016 with the first available appointments for the PS exam in CBT format beginning October 1, 2016. Candidates will be allowed to take the exam only one time per three month testing window and no more than three times in a 12-month period.  


The PS exam will remain a closed book exam with an electronic supplied reference delivered with the exam. Examinees will be allowed to bring and use NCEES approved calculators to the PS exam.


The State Board is currently studying options about the future administration of the 2-hour Oklahoma Law and Surveying exam. More details will be made available at a later date.
