So confident that I passed but the AICPA wants to keep you going

So, I passed FAR, REG & AUD on my first time. I now failed BEC twice which makes AUD expires. I was fine with BEC the first time around, but I was ready to claim myself as a CPA when I took it again in December. I had a solid answer for every question they gave me, but stilled failed with a 73. It doesn't make sense, I'll bet I pass next time without doing any additional studying
Also, they want 500 review to do a score review, but it's 99% unsuccessful….Why would they even offer this? The system is a jokeJanuary 7, 2012 at 5:22 am #320369
Normally, I'd agree with you. REG was my last exam and failed by 1 point. Go figure! But I'd have to disagree with you that the AICPA is doing this on purpose. Many people here on this site passed their last part with flying colors. What's happening to us is just a coincidence.January 7, 2012 at 5:57 am #320370
REG, AUD, FAR is determined by CPU grading, They have nothing to have to do with any human interaction. Which is another question on why these test are not graded real time. You would think that they don't care about “curves”, but it doesn't make sense. If it's a computer based exam, but you need to wait weeks to find out your score. They claim they don't curve it, but in my opinion you should know your score before you walk out.
Why does it take so long to get your score? It's not right
CMA used to be this way until they changed it last year. As soon as your done, the score populates. I understand this part for BEC, but why are we waiting for these results?
They want $500 to regrade a CPA exam. Joke!!January 7, 2012 at 6:25 am #320371
Yep, it's always somebody else's fault….January 7, 2012 at 6:34 am #320372
They already review the score several times. I can't imagine paying for a regrade would have any real effect at all.January 7, 2012 at 6:41 am #320373
I doubt you work full time, but congats, you should be proud. It's nobodies fault except my own. CPA is a monster,January 7, 2012 at 6:56 am #320374
Yeah, I am 22. Just graduated. Live at home with my parents. No job. No responsibilities. I had it pretty easy.
You are almost there. Good luck!January 7, 2012 at 2:16 pm #320375
Mini I decided that if I had a wife, I would have passed first go around…I hope you showered her with praise for supporting you! You're cool and all but Ive decided mrs mini is my hero!
Being the wife on the other hand, is like a 2nd full time job LOL!! I am so coming back reincarnated as a guy. Oh AND I strongly discourage anybody from trying this while in school and working full time. That said vern, it has nothing to do with whether you do or do not work full time. The times I studied harder I passed, no doubt about it.January 7, 2012 at 3:19 pm #320376
@mia – yeah, my wife is awesome. We had our little girl 29 days before I took FAR. That month of studying with a new baby was tough on everyone. Was definitely tricky taking FAR having gotten NO SLEEP the prior MONTH! Lol. My wife is repaying the favor now though. She has passed REG and AUD and is going to tackle the other two after tax season. I'd say for the next several months that I am the Mrs. Mini of the household. Lol.January 7, 2012 at 3:31 pm #320377
Oh geez, she's doing the CPA too? LOL. I hope she isn't the target of any of your jabs on here…because she has access to frying pans and rolling pins that can do SERIOUS damage to your skull. Good for her, I still can't imagine any parent (daddy or mommy) doing this with babies in the house. My utmost respect!January 7, 2012 at 6:33 pm #320378
Failing REG was my own fault. I said in another thread that I take full responsibility for my 74. I did not do that many practice Simulations before taking the test. I only did the ones in the Gleim book, which were stupid because they were too easy. The Wiley software has some real challenging ones and I didn't bother to look at them. Also, I did not bother familiarizing myself with the IRC, so I freaked out on the Research question on the test. I'm not 100% sure if the Research question is what I messed up on, but I do know that I spent almost 20 mins looking up the answer. Had I familiarized myself with the IRC, I would've been more prepared and been able to research faster, thus giving me more time to work on the other 5 TB Sims. Yes, it was my fault.
