CPA Exam Score Release Timeline: April & May 2014


Any CPA Exam veteran knows that taking the exam is the easy part.

The hard part of the CPA Exam is the score release wait.

A couple of things about the information on this page:

1. This is for NASBA States.

If you live in California, Illinois, Texas, or any of the other “Indie” states, then your score release will happen after the NASBA release. Usually it’s 1-3 days after, depending on the State.

2. The science behind the NINJA predictions is simple: Target Date – 1 Business Day.

That’s it.

It’s very simple, but rarely wrong. The NINJA prediction was 3 for 3 in Q1 2014.

3. On Score Release day, the only place to get up to date score release information is the Another71 Forum.

Where do I Check my CPA Exam Score?

There are three categories of states when it comes to releasing CPA Exam Scores: NASBA States, Indie States, and Snail Mail States.

Most state boards of accountancy outsource their score reporting function to NASBA. NASBA is quick, consistent, and reliable when it comes to releasing scores. Once the AICPA releases scores to NASBA, the Indie States, and the Snail Mail States, NASBA is very quick to upload candidates scores – oftentimes the same day.

    They always release a day early. Whatever the score is I deserved it, pass or fail. I am on ninja now so I definitely feel better about taking FAR this time around. December 6 can’t come fast enough

  • Nick

    I feel that I am on the borderline for the REG exam. Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping for a pass On Nov 21

  • Didar

  • commentar

    When did you take your test? I had a power outage on 11/1 so I had to retake 11/7. Still waiting for my score

  • Alex

    how do you check? I’ve been putting in what I think is my section ID and my birthday, but it’s not working. Is the section ID just an 8 digit number?

  • Nick
  • TauniMan

    I’m with you. I am so ready for Friday one way or the other!

  • kdee

    what time on Dec. 6 will the marks be released? any speculations?

  • Guest

    it depends, my Nov. 1st one came out about 10 or 11am. but for the two other exams I took before, they came out after lunch around 2pm or later.

  • Nick

    Just got my BEC result few minutes ago, 81

  • Natalya

    How come FAR scores are not being released with the rest of the exams?

  • Ashley

    My FAR scores came today!

  • Natalya

    uhhh…should i be worried?

  • Ashley

    are you expecting to get yours today? I don’t think that necessarily means anything. They all kind of come in at different times.

  • Guest

    i took FAR on Nov 15th…and still no score released as of now

  • Natalya

    I was hoping to get it today…I took FAR on Nov 15th…so NASBA says i should receive them on Monday

  • dallas

    Still waiting for my BEC score on the 19th of November. Ideas on when this will come?

  • Nick

    Took my BEC on Nov 29 and got the results today. You should definitely get it by Monday. Sometimes for BEC if your score is at the borderline then a real person might evaluate your essays to see if they can add some points and pass you

  • sboggram

    When will the BEC scores be released for those who gave in the extended window




    Thank you so much for posting this page – I spent 45 minutes scouring NASBA’s website looking for the link to check my score. I though I was going crazy! Thank you -

  • Sara

    Does anyone know if it’s possible to pass FAR if I only completed 2 of the simulations and completed half of another 2?

  • Raymond

    I imagine its possible. Although sims are worth 40% of the total score, so only getting 2 done and some of the others doesn’t make it easy. Good Luck.

  • Tola

    Hello!! Does anyone have any tips for studying for FAR? I’m taking in on the 5th of April. Many thanks!
