No one believed me early last week when i said Dec. 28.
We are never going to get our scores....ugh.....
jhein - Looks like you were more right than any of us! Does anyone think we'll get the scores this week, or is it more likely they won't be released until January?
Unless jhein023 knows something we don't, I think we'll have to wait until January...jhein023, is your prediction of Dec 28 based on past experience?
This whole thing is just ridiculous!
@ jhein023 - I didn't doubt that it would be the end of the month or January...All I said was that I hoped we would get the scores by the end of last week, but that I wasn't holding my breath.
This is really dumb. Based on the way WI typically released scores, I could see how it took longer. There were always scores still coming in a few days, or even a week, after the scores were originally released. However, all scores for this window were released by a week ago (or longer?).
I called NASBA today and asked why my OASIS stated that I should receive my score notice within 10 business days and I haven't received anything. (Even though I know it really hasn't been 10 "BUSINESS" days) The woman I spoke to said that the earliest WI would release scores would be the 31st of December. I told her that the wave was closed and that I didn't understand why it was taking so long. She said that she couldn't do anything and she didn't know why I was getting that message because notices for WI have not been released.
Release will not be until the 1st week of January.

Direct from Geneva in a reply to my e-mail on 12/15. BEC scores were first released on Tuesday the 14th and according to the AICPA tweets the window was closed on 12/16. So I don't even want to get my hopes up until next week.
This process is broke.
Very frustrating! I'm having a difficult time focusing. Since I can re-register for Auditing, I've been studying for that with the intent to retake it as soon as possible in January since it is still pretty fresh in my mind. I also did not pass FAR in October so I want to try and study for that as well for February. According to Jeff, these are the two exams to try and pass in the first testing window for 2011. Is anyone else in the same boat? What are your studying plans?
We had the exact same experience. I got a 74 on FAR in OCT adn can now re-register for AUD that I sat for at the end of November. I'll probably also try and take AUD again first then I'm not sure. I picked up the 2011 Wiley Book for AUD but I'm having trouble kicking myself back into studying gear. Hopefully I'll get the motivation soon.
Since I can register for audit i am guessing i didn't pass. I am planning on studying this coming weekend since i have Thurs - Sun off then get my NTS as soon as i can and retake. Since I was getting 85-100 on my practice tests before i took audit last time I am hoping I don't have much to study. I am still getting 80's on the practice tests now after 6 weeks off from studying. i need to get it taken soon because January is super busy for me at work and then tax season starts. It is my first year doing tax season since my promo in July so I need to be able to concentrate on that.
I was really hoping for our scores to be released tomorrow night but that doesn't sound like it will happen now. It would sure be nice if someone could figure out who is in charge of this racket and get them to change it. We shouldn't have to wait so long for our scores. We pay the same as everyone else does and get horrible service! (venting!)
I tried emailing here to figure out this disaster of a process, not sure if this is correct or not:
I think we can all guess the response...none.
@CPAGreen - I was trying to figure out whether it would be better to try to retake AUD in January or the end of April. I lose BEC on April 30, so I need to take/pass AUD by then. I'm just worried about the new IFRS material on the exam...I currently don't have any study materials that cover IFRS.
Is it possible for WI candidates to apply in a NASBA state and then transfer your score back to WI after passing all 4 exams so you can recieve your scores faster. Seems like this should be possible.
@mike01 - Good idea! This is crazy. At this point we are talking weeks of studying that could be missed by not having our scores. If WI is going to release the scores so late then they should extend the 18 month period.
@07STI- I have access to the 2011 Becker materials online since I purchased 2010 less than 6 months ago and so far there has been very little changes that Becker has presented in chapter 1. I started reviewing chapter 2 last night and I noticed that Becker does break out Compilations into 2 sections for those who will take the exam before June 2011 and after June 2011. What materials are you using?
@Jayz11- Thanks for emailing. Can't hurt to try.
I've said this before, but I don't understand why WI releases scores so late and who it benefits. Obviously, it is possible to release scores sooner, as other states are doing so. In terms of benefits, Wisconsin candidates certainly aren't on the receiving end. In fact, Wisconsin candidates are at a disadvantage as compared to other states in that they must wait longer to make plans for future testing. Weeks without knowledge of pass/fail = weeks without knowledge of whether or not one should be restudying a failed section or working on a new section. I don't understand why Wisconsin would choose to put its own candidates at a disadvantage. The AICPA closed this window weeks ago, and not only are we still waiting on our scores, but nothing is posted by WI as to when scores should be expected.
@JANINWI_ I completly agree, we need to be directing all this conversation to the WDRL. After I pass all the exams(fingers crossed) I plan on writing a letter to the WDRL to give them my thoughts. I would hope if others do the same, maybe we can change the process at least in the future? Its just unfair plain and simple
@CPAGreen - I'm not sure what I'm going to do for study materials. Mine are pretty old, so I need to get new ones (assuming I failed).
Has anyone thought of trying to register by phone for the test we are waiting on? If you get a live person and say you want to register for Audit will they let you if you passed? (they can see your score) I don't think they would let you. I got 2 tests on my first NTS and then got another one for the last two and I hadn't gotten my BEC score. The woman I was talking to said she could see my score but couldn't tell me. I didn't think of it then but had I known that I would have told them I wanted to get an NTS for 3 tests. I don't think she would have let me instead I told her I would call back after I got my score so I could do all 3 if I needed to because it was cheaper. Anyway, I was toying with the idea of trying to call to register and see if they let me.
sleepless - so they can see your score, but you can't yet . . . the process just doesn't make sense. With the technology available today, the delay in release just doesn't add up.
I'm quite confident I passed BEC, and I'm still anxious for my score. I would be quite distraught if I thought I was borderline. The studying is so intense for this.
I am also wondering if Geneva was just saying the scores won't come out until after the 1st so we would leave her alone. i still find myself checking for my score tonight in hopes she was lying.
So, I'm a newbie here, and new to the computer based test. Praying for a 75 on BEC. I gave up on the CPA after several disheartening attempts at old pencil/paper exam. My best showing was a 76, 74, 72, 71. A few years ago I gave FAR a try and never thought to check for scores online. After seeing the error screen pop up for the past few weeks I don't know that I'll ever believe it when the scores are finally posted online. It is so frustrating to be waiting, especially since most of my co-workers have already gotten their scores. I live in an early bird NASBA state now, but I'm sitting for WI because of the favorable grandfather status of my home state. UGH!
Well its 9:17 and no score, I'm going to bed and maybe I'll dream I passed.
I may have figured this mess out. So, I noticed that the credits for the exams I passed don't expire until the end of the month after 18 months. I took audit on April 8, 2010, but my credit doesn't expire until the end of October 2011. Shouldn't my credit expire October 8, 2011? Is that why Wisconsin doesn't release scores until the end of the month? Because they give us an extra couple of weeks before our credits expire? Is there any truth to this? When does everyone else's credits expire?
I don't mean to crush your theory, but that is the way my expiration dates fall as well. They show on my report as expiring at the end of the month regardless of when during the month I took the exam. I am in MN, a NASBA state.
Anyone think tonight will be the night?
I hope no one's been holding their breath...
I would have never thought in my wildest dreams that we would have had to wait until Jan to get our scores. I know its only a few days away its getting harder and harder to be understanding.
I sure hope this is my last one...
Well, since the new year starts over a weekend, we may be waiting into next week yet. Last year, I believe Wisconsin released on 12/31.
Did you ever get a reply to your e-mail. I also e-mailed Angela on the same day after seeing your post. But of course, no reply. I just can't believe this. We pay to take these tests the least they could is reply to us. What a joke.
@WISCOJAKE -- No email response; just called and left her a voicemail. Which will be the first of many until she calls me back. I used to have Geneva's direct line as well when I was having problems with my paperwork...
I dont know why, I guess im bored but I checked and still nothing for me :(
@WI_11 I check all the time too. Double check that my birthdate and NTS is correct. :( Nothing here
I'll be checking tonight, just in case. I'm not holding my breath, though. If anyone receives his/her score, please shout it from the rooftops, okay!
I am going to check too, just in case......
