84! Last one and I am done. 🙂 Congrats to all that passed BEC.June 28, 2018 at 9:07 pm #1855159AndrewParticipant
I am so happy to be apart of this thread. I just graduated from college in May and somehow cranked out 150 credits in my 4 years of undergrad. I sat for BEC the week after I graduated and was beyond nervous for my first exam. I probably dumped a solid 300 hours of study into this exam, but now I know that those hours were well worth it.
I passed with an 88!!! This is my first exam so I am not even close to being out of the woods yet, but it feels so good to get some confidence under my belt.
I started a post here immediately after my exam because I felt awful about it. Like I only knew about 60% of the material. For anyone having these feelings, do NOT listen to them. This exam is weird, and your gut doesnt have a clue about what the outcome will be. They grade these exams in such a screwed up way that even if you feel like you failed and like an idiot for even attempting an exam, you can still pass.
Next up: REG. Time to knock this one out of the park!!June 29, 2018 at 5:54 am #18555102bigcpaParticipant
I failed BEC with a 70.June 29, 2018 at 6:01 am #1855516IanParticipant

Passed with a 93.June 29, 2018 at 7:05 am #1855681AnonymousInactive
insane i did better on BEC than i thought, i think my writing skills definitely saved my sorry behind. I did not even major in accounting or any STEM field (was poli sci major).you best believe I slayed that written communication 😀 so if i can do it so can anyone else no matter what your background. 3 weeks with ninja + BEC did it for me.

I passed BEC and I'm done! Praise the Lord! Congrats to all who passed BEC! This was my least favorite section.June 29, 2018 at 8:12 am #1855837mdrParticipant
Somehow I passed with an 80! I have never felt so unprepared for an exam in my life so I was very surprised to see this score. Now I am on to FAR 🙁June 29, 2018 at 9:19 am #1856008jeremiahParticipant
Passed BEC with an 82! Up from a 64 on my first attempt. All i have to do is pass REG again since it has expired and I'll be done. Congrats to everyone who passed. If you failed, keep trying, my score improvement is from putting the more time in.June 29, 2018 at 9:28 am #1854913Broken ToyParticipant

passed BEC with 79! after three fails last year, two for FAR and one for REG. I decided to switch it up for a confidence boost, against popular opinion, but it worked for me 🙂

Me: I passed my first test with a 94.
Mom: So you got 94 percent?
Me: No, I got 94 points out of 100.
Mom: What percentage does that equate to?
Me: They kind of scale the scores up or down without telling us… No one really understands it, but scores are not percentages.
Mom: Okay but… If you had to say, what percentage do you think you got?September 10, 2018 at 4:05 pm #1965810Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
Bumping for Score Release. Don't hate me if I gave you a heart attack 🙂September 10, 2018 at 9:05 pm #1966521AnonymousInactive
Yes!!! On attempt number 3, I passed this horrible section with an 81!!!September 10, 2018 at 9:07 pm #1966554AnonymousInactive
I passed BEC with a 92 which means that I am done!
I got an 89 on my Gleim practice exam, but definitely had a lot of MCQs memorized. However, I did a bunch of Wiley questions from the test bank and I feel like this helped. I also stuck to Gleim's time management program, and I wound up with about an hour and twenty minutes for the WC. I'm guessing this helped compensate for feeling shaky on the SIMS.September 10, 2018 at 9:09 pm #1966572RyonTParticipant
85!!! 4th times a charm! Worst section ever!September 11, 2018 at 6:37 am #1967307maplewoodParticipant
