Hello – Wondering if anyone has had any luck with the NASBSA Score Review?
I recently received a 74 on REG.I paid the $240 for the Score Review even though it says there is a less than 1% chance of having the grade adjusted. I was wondering if anyone has been that 1% and got their grade changed?August 5, 2019 at 1:28 pm #2608566
I have not seen it work for anyone on this site while I have been here.
Good luck though!! Let us know how it goes.August 5, 2019 at 3:26 pm #2608989
I would imagine that 1% is errors made machine. But honestly how likely can machine make mistakes. Hope for a miracle, it happens.August 6, 2019 at 12:20 pm #2611554
Actual NASBA review process:
1. Collect $240.
2. Laugh heinously.
3. Wait three weeks while pretending to review the score
4. Issue result saying that score has not been changed.August 9, 2019 at 12:02 pm #2619309
1. Candidate applies for the score review through their NASBA CPA Candidate Candidate Account.
2. NASBA sends the request along with fees to the AICPA (who grades the exam, and handles the score review.)
3. Process can take up to 6 weeks from the last day in which candidates can submit the request for a score review.
The score review process begins on “submission deadline” date, regardless of when your form is submitted for processing.
The results of the score review will be returned to you and/or your State Board of Accountancy within six weeks from the “submission deadline” date. Which is usually the 25th of the first
month in the next testing window after you received your score.
4. The AICPA transmits a new score notice to NASBA then that score notice is released to candidate.August 9, 2019 at 1:19 pm #2619486
I have never heard of this working out for anyone. I think quality control is pretty rigorous, especially on scores that close to passing. Maybe I dreamed this but I think I read somewhere one time that the success rate is something way less than 1% of all appeals. I'd just spend the time getting prepped for the retake. You're THAT close!August 9, 2019 at 1:21 pm #2619498
Ah, so sorry hun! Honestly, you should've just spend that money on retake :-((( if they say less than 1% chance it means that you just threw away the $240 and gonna have to pay another $300 for retake. I feel your paid though.. 74 is the shittiest of all scores!August 11, 2019 at 6:50 pm #2624130
I'm pretty much nobody in Another71 history has ever got their scores adjusted. To yourself a favor and blow that $ on a bunch of drinks rather than the score review. All the ACIPA are gonna do is match the answer you selected to their answer bank. 99.9999% they are correct.August 13, 2019 at 12:09 pm #2628249
LOL @ Puppykoala and AICPAy2Play! Now THAT was funny! Keep studying during the waiting period. I didn't believe people actually received 74s until i got one hot off the press! Good luck to you.August 13, 2019 at 12:28 pm #2628294
sorry but you should've consulted here before spending that money. putting your money on a less than 1% chance. ive read that if the score is close like that there maybe some human review on the exam on things like the written portion or simulation just to be sure the machine was ‘fair.'August 13, 2019 at 12:41 pm #2628330
Probably would have been better to take that money to a casino and play the roulette wheel.
So it goes. Best of luck with your score review.August 13, 2019 at 1:53 pm #2628531
Roulette gives a 2.6% chance of a 35x payout.
So yes, a much better deal.
Plus, you drink for free while awaiting results.August 13, 2019 at 2:01 pm #2628534

This has easily become my favorite thread. I keep checking back for “Better Ways to Waste $240”August 13, 2019 at 2:28 pm #2628627
$240 will buy you about half a round at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island… if you are into golf.
I can also think of much better ways to spend $240, that are equally as risky. What happens in vegas doesn't always stay in vegas!August 13, 2019 at 3:23 pm #2628699
If the $240.00 was to have the grade changed, it won't. You could pay for the section again and pass by the time they decide NOT to change the grade. Take it again, and pass. You might have to borrow the test fees though.August 14, 2019 at 6:11 am #2629773
The comments on this thread are hilarious. Unfortunately, they are all true. That's the bitter part. I hope it works out for you but honestly, it probably wouldn't giving history. I'd start preparing for a retake. You are already so close. It always hurts when you are so close to passing score. I know this because I have experienced it 3 good times with BEC. Anyways, I wish you luck!August 14, 2019 at 7:45 am #2629881
Don't listen to those trolls! This is better investment than stock market at the moment!August 14, 2019 at 7:47 am #2629884

Back when I was in university, I would count how many Chinese take-out lunch specials I can score with x amount of money. My go-to was beef with broccoli which cost about $6.00. For $240, I could have had money to eat lunch for 40 days.
Currently, take-out specials at my local spot now costs about $7.25 so I would be eating less beef with broccoli but a full belly for 33 days is definitely better than an empty pocket.
I also hope it works out for you but it is my understanding it won't based on what is stated on NASBA. I'd start studying again soon if you have not already.
“If you do not think your score is correct, you may file for a Score Review.
The score review process involves making certain that the approved answer keys were used and applied correctly in determining a candidate’s score and is not an opportunity to have alternate responses considered. It is simply an additional independent verification of your Exam score. Please keep in mind that all scores undergo thorough quality control checks before they are released.
Given all the quality control reviews already completed, it is highly unlikely that your score will change due to a score review.”
