Will the changes necessary to enable online proctoring make the exam easier or harder?

Neither. The content you will be assessed on when you take an ARE division, as well as the proportion of items each content area takes up on the exam, are not changing. Note: Because the exam length is changing, NCARB will need to set a new cut score after the online proctoring option launches. However, the cut score for each division will be set at the current difficulty level of the corresponding division.
