    Is it true that there is usually no “Becker Bump” for audit mock scores and that what you get on the mock tests are the score range you should expect?


    I've gotten the gist that AUD is the only exam that seems to not have a Becker Bump

    FAR - 80 (4/1/2019)

    BEC - 82 (9/7/2019)

    AUD - 81 (11/23/2019)

    REG - 94 (3/9/2020)


    I definitely experienced a more modest bump on AUD than the other exams I took, but my actual score was still 6 points higher than my final mock exam.

    AUD - 92
    BEC - 96
    FAR - 91
    REG - 94
    Let's do this

    Giving this a bump. I got a 72 and then an 83 on my mock exams. I still don't feel totally prepared, but I've always gotten some comfort from the Becker bump.


    i hope you guys are outliers. I need that bump.

    Shoot for the stars!

    FAR 88 04/19

    REG 95 07/19

    BEC 91 11/19

    AUD 88 12/19


    I received a 73 on my AUD becker mock exam, and a 75 on my actual AUD exam. However, I feel like this is a more unusual bump and the average bump for this section is like average 7 points. Some of my AUD sims were heavily tied into FAR, and I would have failed if I never looked at FAR (maybe refresh on basic journal entries, nothing too complicated though).

    AUD - 75
    BEC - 86
    FAR - 84
    REG - 78
    No one ever fails the CPA, people only quit the CPA exam.

    I'm not sure about Becker but my test score was higher than my Gleim score.
    On my Mock test I had an 80 and got 85 on the actual exam.

    Although, yes, this was the smallest difference I had between the mock exam and real exam on any section. Every other section had a difference of 10 or greater between mock and actual.

    AUD - 85
    BEC - 86
    FAR - 91
    REG - 84
