Just took the audit exam a couple days ago and I feel so unsure about everything. The sims and MC were short, but very confusing and subjective. Did everyone feel this way? Panicking because everyone always said this one was so easy and “that I should pass”.
Absolutely. I passed the other 3 first try with Becker and AICPA practice tests, but I don't think I got this one. I spent 100 hours studying for AUD and was doing pretty good on my practices tests. I get to the exam, MCQ were definitely “medium” difficulty starting out. I feel like the 2nd testlet was easier but tbh I can never really tell 100%. I get to the SIMs and was relieved that the research was simple. After that I got completely destroyed. Tons of things where there was no right or wrong answer; only a best answer. Also, Becker really did not do a good job with these subjects IMO. If I retake, I will use Ninja.
I took this today. I couldn't tell if my second testlet got harder. There were very straight forward questions, but then some extremely hard questions as well. That probably means it was medium, not hard. I flagged so many questions not because I wanted to count how many I got wrong, but because so many came down to 2 answer choices and I couldn't make up my mind. Every sim had a twist to it. I feel like maybe I got 50% of each sim right. Only thing I feel good about is the research sim. I had decent scores on the Becker mocks 72, 81. Did anyone else feel this way and still pass?
AUD - NINJA in Training BEC - 77 FAR - 81 REG - NINJA in Training
Same here. MCQs ranged from medium to hardish. The sims were tough. Everything was subjective. I got through half of them only by eliminating. I have no idea how I scored. Whatever I get next week, I'll be surprised.
