CPA Exam Score Release Timeline: Q3 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 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 a perfect 3 for 3 in Q1 and Q2 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

  2. Nick says:

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

  3. Didar says:

    same here.

  4. Nick says:

    Passed the REG exam today, 80

  5. KatisB says:

  6. commentar says:

    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

  7. Alex says:

    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?

  8. TauniMan says:

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

  9. kdee says:

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

  10. Guest says:

    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.

  11. Nick says:

    Just got my BEC result few minutes ago, 81

  12. Natalya says:

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

  13. Ashley says:

    My FAR scores came today!

  14. Natalya says:

    uhhh…should i be worried?

  15. Ashley says:

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

  16. Guest says:

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

  17. Natalya says:

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

  18. dallas says:

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

  19. Nick says:

    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

  20. sboggram says:

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

  21. MAITRI says:


  22. I AM SO GLAD TO BE DONE! says:

    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 -

  23. Sara says:

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

  24. Raymond says:

    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.

  25. Tola says:

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

  26. LD says:

    I received the following e-mail from NASBA:

    “Effective April 1, 2014, the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy CPA Examination candidates can view their scores online. Only the scores from the current test window are available on the website.

    These scores are not official until validated by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy. Once validated, you will receive score notifications and forms through the normal email and postal processes.”

    Does this mean we would possibly be able to see our scores on the NASBA website on Friday… even though they are not “validated”?

  27. Courtney says:

    That’s how I interpreted it. You can view the score NASBA gave you, but don’t celebrate or despair until you get your Texas-validated score. I guess we will see for sure what the site allows Friday or Monday.

  28. arcadia2uk says:

    I was really surprised to see that NASBA published the results today, Saturday, May 3. When it wasn’t out yesterday I assumed it wouldn’t be there until Monday. Can I return the Ninja BEC Book I bought just a couple of days ago for refund. ;)
