It takes one day to get it.June 1, 2020 at 6:10 am #3014607tmac87Participant
OK gotcha. Guess I should relax, since they delayed results and maybe the weekend didn't help. Thanks.June 6, 2020 at 9:58 pm #3019749April94Participant
Thank you for the detailed answer! I appreciate the tips. I feel a lot more prepared going into this retake than I did on my 1st attempt, so I'm hoping that pays off.June 8, 2020 at 11:13 am #3020745KrupaParticipant
Any updates on the June 9th release, and is it expected to be out today?June 8, 2020 at 11:36 am #3020748tmac87Participant
Just checked my AUD score through the Eyeball trick, and saw “Credit” there, so I think we should be good tonight for the normal release.June 8, 2020 at 11:39 am #3020751June 8, 2020 at 4:58 pm #3021123
Looks like 1 more hour to go!June 8, 2020 at 5:12 pm #3021126
Holy Crap! Less than an hour left. I'll either be enjoying a glass of extra anejo tequila or re-studying for FAR tonight. Good Luck everyone!!June 8, 2020 at 5:27 pm #3021138

Scored a 73. I am just heart broken on this one.June 8, 2020 at 5:58 pm #3021180
@CH89 Oh nooooo! I'm sorry. Damn that sucks! I have to check and see if my scores are out.June 8, 2020 at 6:18 pm #3021210VanquishedParticipant
Just found out that I pass AUD with an 84. I was ready to be super pissed because I studied well over 200 hours and was getting 90s+ on the Becker practice exams and had 100% completion on everything, but I passed.
I have taken all 4 exams and had a score in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. I literally have no idea what to expect anymoreJune 8, 2020 at 6:20 pm #3021213Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
Sorry to hear this CH89.June 8, 2020 at 6:22 pm #3021225Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
Congrats Vanquished!June 8, 2020 at 6:35 pm #3021231CPA_VTParticipant
Passed FAR with a 88. 2 more sections REG and AUD to go.
I thought I was borderline because I did real bad on 1 SIM and bombed quite a few MCQs but I can only guess that many of could have been pretest questions.
Any way big relief , during my study sessions I really struggled with Not for profit and Government Accounting when I was studying and was unsure of some of those in the exam as well, May be I got them right. I have no doubt that GLEIM helped me be prepared and I am sticking with it for the next two sections. Good luck to everyone on this forumJune 8, 2020 at 6:40 pm #3021240
@Jeff Elliott – Hey Jeff, do you have any suggestions of what I could do differently? I re-wrote my own notes, I re-wrote the Ninja Notes. I followed my review course, did MCQs, did SIMs, did the practice AICPA test. I followed Gleim's adaptive review, which was do a set of MCQs or Sims, or review the outline. Should I put more of a focus on doing more MCQs?
Just venting here, but this was/is hard. Is it okay to put blame on unfavorable testing conditions, wearing a mask. Or the fact that I only got 3-4 hours of solid sleep at a not so great hotel.
Congrats to all that have passed! Back to the grind for me. Good luck to everyone going forward!June 8, 2020 at 7:04 pm #3021267
Passed FAR with an 87! I'm done, done, done, done!!June 8, 2020 at 7:07 pm #3021270

Congrats to those who've passed! Any CA candidates get their exam score yet?June 8, 2020 at 7:36 pm #3021324
@CH89 thanks! I logged onto my NASBA twice to make sure. I couldn't believe it. Don't lose faith that you can pass this exam. You can do it.June 8, 2020 at 7:40 pm #3021330KristiParticipant

Pdiddy… was there something you Focused on 2nd time with FAR study to improve your score so much?June 9, 2020 at 12:08 pm #3021885
@dyates1983 To be honest, my overall approach to retaking FAR wasn't really to focus on specific details I felt I missed from the first exam. I've seen people get lower scores on their retake and fail again. I really didn't want that to happen to me. For the first FAR exam, I took about 4 months to review all the sections which included 1 week for review. I watched videos, read the text, and took notes. This was my approach because I finished grad school about two years ago and was concerned I may have forgotten a lot of the detailed accounting information. My overall approach for my retake was to condense the time reviewing each section not focus on specific details based on what was on my first exam. I pushed really hard to review 3 of the 4 sections in one month. This mostly involved reading the text and rewriting notes. I only watched a video if the material was confusing. I think this happened only once or twice. It was really difficult staying on track for my retake. I had to study everyday. It was brutal! Oh, I did focus on any material that I was having trouble with during my restudy but I made sure to try and ignore what I felt like I missed on the first FAR exam. The funny thing is I actually ignored the State and Local government section because I scored “stronger” in that section. I have a background in state and local government so that came easy to me. I don't recommend doing this unless you really feel comfortable in a section. One more thing I did for my restudy was look at my score summary to see which sections I was categorized as “weaker”. For the weaker sections, I simply started re-studying those first. This approach ensured that I was covering my weaker areas multiple times. That's mainly it. It was really hard to block out specific details that I felt I missed from the first exam but I knew I was going to get a totally different exam and I did. Good Luck on your retake!June 9, 2020 at 1:07 pm #3021930dyates1983Participant
