REG SCORE ERROR – January 2011
January 12, 2013 at 1:33 am #175650
I received a call today from CPA Examination Services notifying me that the REG test I took on 1/14/2011 was graded incorrectly. I failed that part with a 73 and because of a test key error in one of the simulations, I would have passed with a 75. I took REG 3 more times after that until I passed. I've been licensed in LA for over a year now. They've agreed to refund me for my costs of taking the part 3 times. The lady with testing services told me that this happened to 19 other people. She also said that the AICPA contacted them this week when they found the error.
This is my first post on another71, however I'm no stranger to the forums. Just wanted everyone to be aware.January 12, 2013 at 1:40 am #392346
Weird, this seems to be happening a lot today. I just got a call from the AICPA telling me that I retroactively won the Elijah Watt Sells Award for 1979. What's even weirder is that I was born in 1987. I wonder if I can throw a lavish celebration for winning the award and sue for the cost of the party? Thoughts?January 12, 2013 at 1:45 am #392347
Do with it what you will. I'm just relaying information that I found out today and wanted candidates to be aware. I see that you haven't passed any parts yet. Good Luck.January 12, 2013 at 1:49 am #392348
Well LACPA, I just posted with the same issue on FAR in July '11. A lot of people, understandably, are having a hard time believing it.
And really, it is outrageus that they just give us a call and say, oops, sorry about that.
I'm going to update on this once I get the check. But it would be nice to get more than just the money for the exams back. I know they can't give six months of my life back, but something.January 12, 2013 at 1:49 am #392349
Did they call your cell phone? Take a screen shot of the Caller ID.January 12, 2013 at 3:40 am #392350
Why are people doing this? If this is the best practical joke you can come up with, may I be the first to say…way lame.January 12, 2013 at 4:45 am #392351
Ya know I'm not one to assume someone is lying, I'm a pretty trusting person, however I do find it odd that both posters who said this happened to them both created their profile today. So if it is a hoax then my bet is that it is the same person and they created the second profile to make it look like they weren't lying and that it happened to someone else too. Of course I am not saying that this is the case because I do not want to call anyone a liar. That is just what I assume if this is a joke.January 12, 2013 at 5:08 am #392352
Drama Ninja will be all over it.
From what I remember, Jeff has no problem cross checking IP addresses and what not. Of course that doesn't keep someone from creating a separate account at home after they already created the first one at work.January 12, 2013 at 5:12 am #392353
I found it is hard to believe… If it is true thanharing sharing. But if it is a made up story.. It is not funny at all..!!January 12, 2013 at 5:37 am #392354

This person's spouse posted here back in 2011 about their husband taking the exams, so I don't think this is a prankster.January 12, 2013 at 6:01 am #392355
First, you are 100% correct. My wife did post on the forums back in 2011. The representative at testing services left me a message on my cell phone. I printed a screen shot of the phone number from my phone. In order to keep the phone number confidential (and not have a thousand people calling), could i e-mail you my screen shot? Believe me, I didn't believe what happened to me today could have ever happened.January 12, 2013 at 6:01 am #392356
I e-mailed you the screenshot from my phone. I found your e-mail from one of my old ninja notes e-mails.January 12, 2013 at 6:27 am #392357

I really get upset when administrative errors happen. Especially when they come from entities which have the sole job of ensuring accuracy. I saw the other post on this forum that looked similar and if it is really true I'm pretty sure I'd be going bonkers right about now. I mean, it has to be such a helpless feeling to find this out because what can you do! They're going to refund your fees, big woop! How about all the time, anguish, stress, etc. that you had to go through in order to pass the section the subsequent time, if that even happened. I think they should be providing more than just a refund for the fees.January 12, 2013 at 1:40 pm #392360
Wow. I didn't want to assume that either was lying and I really did believe the OP was being pranked. Honestly I think a prank would have been LESS cruel than the truth.January 12, 2013 at 2:54 pm #392361
Something similar to this happened to me back when I was half-a$$ed attempting the exams two years ago. Except I didn't receive a phone call that I can remember – I received a letter stating that they had found an error in the FAR exam I had taken and that I actually had passed. Maybe if I had pulled my head out of my butt a couple years ago, I could've been done with this exam already! 🙂January 12, 2013 at 4:42 pm #392362
LACPA111 & Kushmirc – Big apologies to both of you…… I hope you both understand us here in the forum.. it was so hard to believe… But it seems to be the truth ha…
At least it is not the other round where you passed and licensed then AICPA call to tell you that your passing score was error and you should have failed … that would be even worse…January 12, 2013 at 5:26 pm #392363
Wow yea I would be so upset. Reimbursement is nothing compared to the time that was given up that could have been spent with family, friends, or just doing what you want to do. You can't take away all the stress and depression just by being reimbursed. I hate that this happened to you, especially since it was such a long gap from when it happened to when you found out.January 12, 2013 at 5:36 pm #392364
Well, thank you all for sticking with the thread long enough to realize that it is not a joke. I know that time is probably the one thing that we all have the least of, so I would not think of wasting people's time on here.
Haha, CPA88888, I was thinking the same thing. At least I didn't find out that I had acutally failed again. I sure hope that never happens to anyone.
I'm thinking I might just have to let it go….but it really is a crime that they don't find out about these errors a whole lot sooner.January 12, 2013 at 5:40 pm #392365
This is crazy. My wife called me Thursday at work and said some lady called about my test. She left a number but when I call it back it just ends my call. Now, after reading this, I hope they tell me one of my REG test grades are wrong so I can stop studying for my test on the 4th and be done with this madness. Somebody have the number they were called with cause mine is not working; I'm wondering if my wife maybe wrote it down wrong? Let me know please.January 12, 2013 at 5:46 pm #392366
Well, the number of CPA Examination Services from the NASBA website is: 615-880-4250
The number of the woman that called me only had the last digit different from the general line above. I hesitate to give out her direct line, but I would say that a person that should be able to give you an answer wouldn't be far from the general number above.January 12, 2013 at 5:50 pm #392367
@kushmirc – Thanks! I noticed that and called and it hangs up also. I tried the 1-800-CPA-EXAM number above it. They are closed today but open tomorrow…weird. I'm definitely calling tomorrow to find out…hoping for good news. Do you think they could take away a passing grade, anyone. I swear I'll sue.
