So I got to the written communication section with 20 minutes left finished the first one, started the 2nd and cut it shorter than I’d have liked to that I could get to the 3rd with 2 minutes left and just kind of wrote down some key words.
Any one know how screwed I am for not being able to finish?August 25, 2019 at 7:37 pm #2656689iwantthiscpaParticipant
Really depends on how you think you did on the rest of the exam. I wouldn't go straight to “yea, you're screwed” based only on the info you gave. Some people don't do great on sims/wc and still pass.August 25, 2019 at 8:20 pm #2656800DesmondParticipant
Hey Jyoung.. a friend of mine was in a situation almost exactly like yours … ended up getting a 90..
Don't worry, you'll be fine if u did well on the rest of it!August 26, 2019 at 3:09 am #2657277SilentParticipant
Just because you run out of time don't mean a thing. It really depends how you did on the rest of the section. Remember that written portion counts only for around 15%. I would not worry too much about it.August 26, 2019 at 6:26 am #2657394
Thanks for the responses, makes me feel a little better knowing others have not finished and passed still.September 10, 2019 at 10:19 am #2696499

Congrads!!!!! I think BEC is the hardest one honestly..September 10, 2019 at 2:01 pm #2697294KeepPushingParticipant
@jyoung117 thank you for updating us! Give me hope. My experience with bec this morning was so unique from the others. Feel so weird and can’t pin point how I feel!September 10, 2019 at 2:16 pm #2697342
Thank you @Painted_Jeans 🙂 I hope that ends up being the case for me, I actually struggled with audit because I learn best by experience and I never really worked in the audit field. I’m hoping FAR ends up being easier for me since I actually work or have worked with a lot of FAR type topics but we will see.September 10, 2019 at 2:18 pm #2697348
What do you think made it unique?September 10, 2019 at 2:43 pm #2697399KeepPushingParticipant
@jyoung117 it was unique in that the topics are not necessarily accounting related. So there is no “flow” to the test like others. It’s everything else about business I didn’t like, finance and Econ for example, which is why I majored in accounting and not in those haha so, I don’t have that “feeling” of I either passed or failed. I just can’t tell. With other topics I can study 1000 questions and I finally get it, but with financial specifically I did study all questions available and I never felt comfortable with it as I did with accounting ring related topics. Like I’ve said before though, God can move mountains and I am praying that my efforts were enough so he can move this mountain that is BEC for me into a pass grade! Huge congrats on your pass! Your perseverance and ethic is inspiring!!September 10, 2019 at 2:53 pm #2697435UnknownParticipant
You can say that again. BEC was a nightmare from hell!!!
