Feb 23rd Score Release People- Get in here!!
February 16, 2017 at 10:34 am #1479228
I can not stop thinking about whether I passed FAR or not, it is haunting the hell out of me.
I had a dream last night that I passed with a 94(lol yea right) and everyone at work was praising me…it felt sooo good and sooo right.February 16, 2017 at 10:37 am #1479229
I really just want this hell to be over. Even with the passing scores and time I still feel like im going to have repeated my 74 performance on reg.February 16, 2017 at 12:09 pm #1479309
I am so anxious for this score release. I am really hoping I will not have to retake it in Q2 with the delayed score release. Took AUD last week and have already starting forging forward on FAR. Not sure if it was a good decision or bad decision to hold FAR off to be my Q2 exam, but the decision has been made.February 16, 2017 at 12:25 pm #1479321
I've gone back and forth with how I feel about my exam, but now I'm just ready to accept whatever the results are. If I pass, on to the next one. If I fail, get back on it and hit that retake harder in Q2.February 16, 2017 at 12:27 pm #1479324
I feel so much calmer about this score release than last time. Maybe it's because regardless, I'm taking Q2 off from any studying or testing so I can get through tax season. It's my first one so people keep asking how I'm feeling and if I'm tired yet. LOL. Are you kidding? Working all of the OT is nowhere near as exhausting as studying for these exams. Working is like a vacation now.February 17, 2017 at 11:55 am #1480212
Nervous bump.February 17, 2017 at 12:15 pm #1480239
I've failed so many times I have score release down.
-Take my exam. Freak out.
-Spend a night or 2 thinking about the questions I miss.
-Have a day or 2 of being calm.
-Then about 2 days of mixed emotions–panic sweats thinking about failing, happy thoughts with the thought I might have passed.
-Then 2 or 3 days before the exam its complete panic mode.
-About the time score release day comes I feel so beat up I just stop caring–until about 3 hours before release…then its tossing and turning in bed after I've told myself I would sleep through the night and check in the morning (yeah right!).
Right now I'm in the 2 days of being calm phase…after the weekend I'll be in the mixed emotions…typically my mixed emotions are about 95% negative and 5% positive.February 17, 2017 at 12:30 pm #1480249
^^^only a true accountant could perform such an analysis- I concur. I have score release down, but this one is messing with me a little more than usual. I took my last 74 harder than most, and now I keep having this nightmarish vision of my score being worse this time. lolFebruary 17, 2017 at 12:38 pm #1480257
@stilgoin my 74 still haunts me and I don't think it will go away until I pass REG. The thought of 1 point separating me from a CPA is sickening. If my FAR drops off….I think you all know how well that would sit with any of us…things wouldn't be pretty.February 17, 2017 at 12:51 pm #1480281
the 74 is one of the most demoralizing thing that will ever happen to me. Especially after expecting my victory paradeFebruary 17, 2017 at 12:55 pm #1480282
My drop-off score will be REG if I get a fail. GRRRRRRRRFebruary 17, 2017 at 1:32 pm #1480314
@stillgoin Good luck, sir! I'm waiting for my REG retake score; I made a 70 last time. If I didn't pass, I lose both AUD and FAR, as I passed both of those in the same window. At least if you didn't pass, you only lose one credit! I'm sure you got that 75 or higher!February 17, 2017 at 1:46 pm #1480323
Anyone think the guys at the AICPA look at this blog and laugh at us, knowing they have our fate in their hands?
Sick bastards.February 17, 2017 at 1:51 pm #1480324
Thanks guys. @Vee – of course they do. I would. lolFebruary 18, 2017 at 10:51 am #1492056
@dtat – How was REG on Tuesday? I had a terrible long week but did not forget hahaha. Hopefully your wife got a happy husband LOLFebruary 18, 2017 at 12:40 pm #1492120
Glad I come to this forum because now I know my wait is 5 days shorter! Took FAR a few weeks ago. My first take of any of the four exams. I think I did great on the multiple choice, but only had 1 hour and 5 minutes left for the SIMs. I think I did OK there, but really no idea what my perceived performance translates to score-wise. I felt thrilled for actually finishing the exam (especially when at the start of the SIMs I just felt like giving up, thinking there was no way I could tackle all the problems with that amount of time), but then doubt set in as I was walking away from the test center and going home. Thought back to a few questions and second-guessed myself on my approaches during the exam. And with the SIMs worth 40%, I don't know if I did well enough on them to get that 75+.
Since taking the exam I have basically moved on and started studying for Audit. Would love to have passed FAR, but if I didn't, well, no big deal. I love accounting, I see myself working in the field for the rest of my career. If I don't pass this time, I'll pass another time. Meanwhile, I will still be passionate about my work, regardless of the number I see on Thursday.
Cheers!February 18, 2017 at 9:26 pm #1492443
Like you thinking so positive! I took FAR few weeks ago too! I hope I pass……..February 18, 2017 at 10:38 pm #1492480
I took FAR on January 20th.. a month ago. It feels like such a distant memory. Hope I passed!February 19, 2017 at 8:55 am #1492599
i had far exam on 6 feb and this is my first CPA exam
It's a marathon not a sprint, so be smart and not give up quicklyFebruary 19, 2017 at 1:25 pm #1492698
It is so weird to be getting a score on Wednesday night. Wonder why?February 19, 2017 at 1:48 pm #1492717
Couldn't be able to get good sleep…worried about the score so badly.February 19, 2017 at 4:04 pm #1492788
Four days. Still not sure I want to look since I need to focus on Audit. I keep having these nightmares I got a 74, or worse, I wasn't even that prepared and got a 65! No no, the 74 is worse. It's all bad.
Such bad anxiety with those REG SIMs. I had 1.5 hours left but I am convinced I missed filling in some cells at this point. One of my SIM's called for allocating numbers based on certain months – what if I used the wrong fraction? No drop downs – just absolute insanity to think I could have missed all the points because of a stupid fraction error while understanding the topic. The REG SIMs are brutally unfair.February 19, 2017 at 4:29 pm #1492807
Waiting on AUD this week and probably need a sleeping pill Weds night. I felt confident leaving Prometric but this is the week where all confidence dies and panic sets in. If I pass, REG on 2/27 could be my last. But BEC expires end of April… fml. Good luck everyone! Esp @stilgoin!February 19, 2017 at 6:17 pm #1492873
I'm still debating on whether or not I want to take Q2 off from studying. If I get this nervous over a 4 week wait, I can't imagine how hard it's going to be to wait 10+ weeks for one.February 19, 2017 at 9:23 pm #1492966
COME ON BEC 2/23 PLEASE MAKE MY DAYYYYYFebruary 19, 2017 at 9:42 pm #1492975
Lets try to keep the positivity alive people.

@namstut @aa We will see, I didn't knock it out of the park like I was hoping. Had horrible time management on the sims. Got caught up on one that I couldn't let go because I had studied the particular concept quite a bit and it was frustrating me I blanked on it. I've gone up and down but quite frankly am tired of trying to speculate–bring on the score!
How is the FAR journey going with you 2?February 20, 2017 at 12:31 pm #1493239
@dtat – hopefully we are both done with REG and you done with the CPA. FAR is going so so. Been caught up with a lot of work (we are supposed to issue our CAFR on March 30th) and boyfriend broke his heel so had to spend a lot of time on helping him. I was going to switch it to April but lucky me my NTS expires in March. So I am going in as prepared as i can be and hope for the best. I feel like I am trying to defeat the beast like no other. LOL.
