I took BEC exam few days ago and still can't shake off how it went. First MCQS was really hard and I had to flag at least a lot of mcqs and ended up guessing the answers. Second Mcqs wasn't bad and sims and WC were okay. I walked out of the exam completely stressed and discouraged. Anyone had similar experience?January 19, 2020 at 12:35 am #2893029FutureCPAParticipant
I felt the same way. I saved the BEC Exam for last after passing the other three exams first try, and honestly I felt less confident walking out of BEC than I did any of the other exams.January 19, 2020 at 11:09 am #2893494
Same here. this was my re-take and I felt same way I felt the first time in took it in last Q. I wish we didn't have to wait this long for score release. hoping for miracle at this point.January 20, 2020 at 5:06 pm #2895558Pravi.iyerParticipant
Just walked out of BEC. Terrible. I just did not have time. Too many Qs that required complex calculations.
– MCQs: Took me 2 hours to complete the 1st 2 testlets. By the time I moved on to the Sims I knew I was in deep sh*t.
– Bombed 4 of the 5 testlets. Made a lot of random selections
– WCs: Had to manage in ~40 mins. Didn’t put much thought into them – pretty much auto pilot.
Worst of the 4 sections. I too am hoping for a miracle.January 22, 2020 at 5:59 pm #2898669
same here. it wasn't the best experience.
Good luck to all of us!!! hope scores are release early…January 23, 2020 at 3:22 am #2899137bigstakkParticipant
It’s completely normal to feel discouraged after taking an exam but if you’ve put in the time and effort to pass you will find that once you let the dust settle you’ve likely done better than you initially thought. Also, you have to consider the pretest problems that don’t get counted. A lot of times those are the problems you are likely missing which are skewing your impression of how you did. Best thing to do is not overly speculate and just try to find a way to relax while waiting for your results. Good luck!January 24, 2020 at 12:47 pm #2900715gmbeckner42Participant
I took it on the 20th and it was awful! This is my last section so just hoping for a miracle at this point.. The MCQ were so weird I guessed on a bunch
AUD – 76
FAR – 76
REG – 80
BEC – pending score releaseJanuary 25, 2020 at 6:03 pm #2902677
Same feeling here. Some MC was out of left field and there was one sim out of nowhere. WC I thought went decent, the questions were very vague and could have been taken in 1000 different directions.
This was my last one, not feeling too good. How many of you have started to restudy before getting your scores?January 25, 2020 at 6:09 pm #2902689Future CPAParticipant
I also just sat for BEC today. It was a retake and I saw the same simulation from last time. Hopefully I got it right. A lot of the questions were put or left field. The test also shut down after I answered the first question.January 25, 2020 at 6:12 pm #2902692
All I can say is the pass rate was high last quarter. I can see the examiners upping the difficulty this Q.January 25, 2020 at 11:18 pm #2903019Pravi.iyerParticipant
Quick Q – when is the earliest I can reappear for the exam after results are out in 1st week of feb?January 25, 2020 at 11:52 pm #2903043
April 1, the start of the next quarter.February 4, 2020 at 7:10 am #2917086

I had the same experience. I did a lot of mcq and felt none of those were on the exam. I took mine on Jan 12th.. well I got a 74 🙁 Totally want to throw away my books and give up!
