On the BEC CPA Exam section, these simulations take the form of a writing skills exercise requiring candidates to write a memo or a letter in response to a hypothetical situation in which a practicing CPA might be placed. These simulations, called BEC Written Communication Tasks (WCs), only appear in the BEC section of the CPA Exam, and they only account for 15% of your BEC score.
