Maybe it is just my imagination, but I thought the numbers were green when I passed FAR? Green…Gray…Burnt Umber…I’ll take anything 75 or above. I really needed this one. I seriously may have taken a looonnngggg hiatus I hadn’t passed. Thank you GOD/JESUS!
According to the Uniform CPA Examination Alert, students who took two sections in a testing window were more likely to pass one section of the CPA Exam than those who took just one. Thought: Makes sense… Students who took two sections were also more likely to pass both of them than pass just one. Thought: Ok, finally something to chew on. Students who took all FOUR sections in a window were more likely to pass all 4 than they were to pass 3, 2, or 1 section. Thought: Weird.
According to the Uniform CPA Examination Alert, they are considering getting rid of the 6 writing sections on AUD/FAR/REG and moving 3 of them to BEC. The thinking surrounding this move is that they can adequately determine a CPA candidate’s written communication skills based on one exam alone.
According to the Uniform CPA Examination Alert the old format of two simulations will be replaced by 5 or 6 shorter Task-Based Simulations. Unlike the current two simulations, the new simulations will be independent of each other and each question will derive from a new set of information. Once approved by the end of 2008, the new format could be implemented in early 2009.
