    Hi All, I recently retook Aud which was my final cpa exam. Up to this point I had passed the other 3 exams all on the first try with decent scores and didn't anticipate that changing until my first shot at Audit. On the previous exams I hadn't felt this type of unease but knew that there was some chance I hadn't passed audit. My gut was right, and I had gotten a 71 on my first attempt. The first 12 hours were painful as I wallowed in my self-pity. Interestingly enough, it actually became really funny that I failed this of all exams because after-all I work as an auditor in public accounting. I spent the entire 2 weeks of winter break re-studying the material and really approaching it as meticulously as I could, because I was really determined never to retake this exam again. Fastforward to the actual exam day. Although initially nervous from the PTSD of failing this exam the first go-around I quickly gained confidence and was cutting through questions. I felt really prepared but I was scratching my head thinking how some of the questions were so easy. I even spent extra time re-reading the questions to make sure I wasn't missing something. Even in the second mc testlet, I did not notice an increase in difficulty but I was carefully going through questions but not feeling particularly challenged. I was still surprised at how “easy” some of the questions were and hoping I wasn't making stupid mistakes. Not sure if there is any point to reading into this but it definitely felt that way leaving the exam and left me feeling concerned. As far as the SIMS go, there were certainly a few that I did not feel great on so at this point I'm just hoping I crossed that 75 mark. I'm curious to see if anyone else has had a similar experience?

    Good luck, please post your scores! I had the same experience with MCQs, SIMs were tricky that's why I failed. I'm going to retake AUD in 3 weeks.

    I also retook Audit on 01/18. Hoping for that 75 on Feb 3rd. I felt my simulations were pretty easy. Multiple choice questions got me thinking a little more. I actually flagged about 8 in each testlet. I am currently studying for my FAR retake after failing with a 74 UGH!!!!! I really hope to pass this time around.

    Don't forget to post your score! You will pass, I believe most of the time people fail because of the SIMs. What do you think helped you to handle the SIMs?

    I just tried to focus on what they asked and scanned thru the documents for ONLY info I needed to get to my answer. I used to get overwhelmed with simulations because of the amount of documents they throw at you to review, but not this time. I was calmed and maybe that helped. I will for sure share score once released 🙂
