Should I be concerned about the BEC essays? I sometimes use long sentence structures and lots of transition phrases. I heard it was graded by computer.March 1, 2018 at 12:02 pm #1721560March 1, 2018 at 12:30 pm #1721567AnonymousInactive
thats interesting as the Becker examples don't have the Dear at the beginning and Regards at the end. That is pretty much what I got from looking at Becker. I am trying not to memorize as if I see something completely out of the ordinary I will freak out.
I understand having a beginning (basically restating the premise), the middle and the end. I am glad I looked at Becker and I didn't know that I would have to address themMarch 1, 2018 at 12:31 pm #1721570AnonymousInactive
plus this template says 3 topics but I would say that some will only have two paragraphs. I just need to make sure I have enough time and I am not rushing.
Its always the last part, right?March 1, 2018 at 6:05 pm #1722122TerriSilvaParticipant
I scored higher than others in my essay questions – I focused on using keywords most of all, and of course grammar. Just make sure you use the right keywords and it should be fine.March 2, 2018 at 9:43 am #1722622SuperCPAParticipant

Yep, I'll just get Essay Dune to write my essays in the middle of the BEC exam. thanks, man. That's helpful.March 2, 2018 at 10:33 am #1722652alloveritParticipant
Something I thought of after I left the BEC test was that I did not begin and end each essay with “Dear” and “Sincerely, CPA candidate”…or words to that affect. Based on my score I would say it doesn't matter too much, but who knows…it could make a difference in borderline score scenarios.March 3, 2018 at 4:40 pm #1723576AnonymousInactive
i took the exam this morning and I think it went well. I took it towards the beginning of the new exam period as the last scores were released at the end of February. That is a wise move, right?
Everyone takes the same exam as it is uniform, so everyone gets the same essays?
I am glad I took it early because if you take it towards the end of the period, do you have to have a higher score to pass? as its hard to prove that someone knew the questions beforehand. I am sure some people will tell their friends. The easy topics weren't difficult, the ones on Becker were much harder.
There was one MCQ that was not in Becker but I looked it up after and still got it right so hopefully that bolds well for me.March 3, 2018 at 5:06 pm #1723582
No. Timing of when you take the exams is completely irrelevant to your passing chances.March 3, 2018 at 5:17 pm #1723586AnonymousInactive
but the exam is uniform, meaning everyone has the same essays?March 3, 2018 at 5:23 pm #1723589
A uniform exam does not mean that questions are the same from exam to exam. It means that the exam is a test of the fundamentals of a topic or area in which your scores can be transferred to other jurisdictions. CPA exam requirements vary state by state, but one thing they all have in common is that everyone has to take the CPA exam. That means it's uniform, not that the questions are all the same.March 4, 2018 at 12:25 pm #1723897KevParticipant
Honestly i wouldnt worry too much about the essays. Just pretend you are writing an email at work and you will be fine. It is only 15% of your grade so focus more on the SIMs and MCQs.March 4, 2018 at 12:28 pm #1723904
Speaking of the essays – the AICPA practice exam doesn't show you the correct answers for the two WC's?June 7, 2020 at 8:23 am #3019911Sylvia_RussellParticipant
When I had to write a BEC essay, I didn't worry at all. After all, I had several resources that could definitely help me. Here are some of them: grammarly, papersowl. Thanks to these resources, I can easily check my essay for grammatical errors or just use the rewrite my essay service. It is very convenient and simple. And I'm always confident in the quality of my own essay.
And that's all I need for a quality essay, which is written independently.
