I have to say that it's nice to know that there doesn't appear to be anyone from Wisconsin who has taken audit and been unable to re-register for it. I felt pretty good about the exam as well, but like I said before, that hasn't generally meant anything. I'm still not going to get my hopes up that it's wrong…It would make for one hell of a Chrismtas or New Year gift if I found out I passed.December 21, 2010 at 11:43 pm #276085
One other thing that I wanted to mention is I think they should have been able to release the scores by now. Typically, they haven't released scores becuase there were scores trickling in a week after the original (bulk) releases by the AICPA. But, it appears that ALL scores were released by the middle of last week. Since they all should have been received last week, there shouldn't be any holdup for WI.December 22, 2010 at 2:53 am #276086
I am unable to re-register for AUD; it is greyed out for me.December 22, 2010 at 3:25 am #276087
9:25 NOTHING FOR ME.December 22, 2010 at 3:30 pm #276088
I've come to the conclusion that we will never receive our scores. NASBA is a joke and so is this procedure set in place by the state of Wisconsin, what is the point of NASBA anyways. To release scores to the states. Why doesn't the AICPA just release them to the states? Really what is the point of this organization. Pissed.December 22, 2010 at 4:53 pm #276089
Per NASBA, all scores will be released by the end of the month. Wisconsin waits until the last minute to release scores. Blah.Blah.Blah. I'm hoping for a score release (and a pass) tonight. What are the chances? It has been a week since scores were released.December 22, 2010 at 5:14 pm #276090
Your chances of hooking up with Jessica Alba and Jennifer Biel at the same time are better at least thats what the NASBA rep told me.. Of course if that happens you can tell them to shove their score.December 22, 2010 at 5:30 pm #276091
Well at least the clowns at NASBA can find the time to make jokes.
If there was some kind of explanation reasoning behind this it would make this wait a little more bearable. But NASBA tells us one thing? Geneva Mosley(the state coordinator) tells us another? I specifically asked Geneva in an e-mail why it is done this way. Of course she never answered the question. Is it really asking too much to find out why something is done the way it is done. Especially considering hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars is dedicated to this exam.December 22, 2010 at 5:32 pm #276092
Can anyone verify what the Ohio loophole error message will be if your score has been received and you passed?December 22, 2010 at 5:36 pm #276093
Jake, I was only kidding about NASBA rep saying that. When I call all I hear is laughter when I ask about scores.December 22, 2010 at 10:45 pm #276094
I think it's safe to say we won't see our scores in 2010. Someone here said scores weren't received until Jan 3 last year.December 23, 2010 at 12:43 am #276095
Someone at my work said she woke up New Years Day and got her score but the scores came out different in this window so I am still hoping for next week.December 23, 2010 at 12:09 pm #276096
Well it looks like wednesday is here and gone…… We must have been bad boys and girls this year.December 23, 2010 at 2:25 pm #276097
Just checked – no scores 🙁December 23, 2010 at 6:13 pm #276098
Well it seems that everyone in CA has got their scores. I guess that only leaves us(I just checked and no scores yet) That gives me some hope for tonight!December 23, 2010 at 10:40 pm #276099
No one believed me early last week when i said Dec. 28.December 27, 2010 at 2:32 pm #276100
We are never going to get our scores….ugh…..December 27, 2010 at 8:30 pm #276101
jhein – Looks like you were more right than any of us! Does anyone think we'll get the scores this week, or is it more likely they won't be released until January?December 27, 2010 at 8:35 pm #276102
Unless jhein023 knows something we don't, I think we'll have to wait until January…jhein023, is your prediction of Dec 28 based on past experience?
This whole thing is just ridiculous!December 27, 2010 at 8:53 pm #276103
@ jhein023 – I didn't doubt that it would be the end of the month or January…All I said was that I hoped we would get the scores by the end of last week, but that I wasn't holding my breath.
This is really dumb. Based on the way WI typically released scores, I could see how it took longer. There were always scores still coming in a few days, or even a week, after the scores were originally released. However, all scores for this window were released by a week ago (or longer?).December 27, 2010 at 9:08 pm #276104
I called NASBA today and asked why my OASIS stated that I should receive my score notice within 10 business days and I haven't received anything. (Even though I know it really hasn't been 10 “BUSINESS” days) The woman I spoke to said that the earliest WI would release scores would be the 31st of December. I told her that the wave was closed and that I didn't understand why it was taking so long. She said that she couldn't do anything and she didn't know why I was getting that message because notices for WI have not been released.December 27, 2010 at 9:20 pm #276105
Release will not be until the 1st week of January.

Direct from Geneva in a reply to my e-mail on 12/15. BEC scores were first released on Tuesday the 14th and according to the AICPA tweets the window was closed on 12/16. So I don't even want to get my hopes up until next week.
This process is broke.December 27, 2010 at 10:34 pm #276106
Very frustrating! I'm having a difficult time focusing. Since I can re-register for Auditing, I've been studying for that with the intent to retake it as soon as possible in January since it is still pretty fresh in my mind. I also did not pass FAR in October so I want to try and study for that as well for February. According to Jeff, these are the two exams to try and pass in the first testing window for 2011. Is anyone else in the same boat? What are your studying plans?December 27, 2010 at 10:38 pm #276107
We had the exact same experience. I got a 74 on FAR in OCT adn can now re-register for AUD that I sat for at the end of November. I'll probably also try and take AUD again first then I'm not sure. I picked up the 2011 Wiley Book for AUD but I'm having trouble kicking myself back into studying gear. Hopefully I'll get the motivation soon.December 28, 2010 at 1:30 am #276108
Since I can register for audit i am guessing i didn't pass. I am planning on studying this coming weekend since i have Thurs – Sun off then get my NTS as soon as i can and retake. Since I was getting 85-100 on my practice tests before i took audit last time I am hoping I don't have much to study. I am still getting 80's on the practice tests now after 6 weeks off from studying. i need to get it taken soon because January is super busy for me at work and then tax season starts. It is my first year doing tax season since my promo in July so I need to be able to concentrate on that.
I was really hoping for our scores to be released tomorrow night but that doesn't sound like it will happen now. It would sure be nice if someone could figure out who is in charge of this racket and get them to change it. We shouldn't have to wait so long for our scores. We pay the same as everyone else does and get horrible service! (venting!)December 28, 2010 at 7:04 am #276109
I tried emailing here to figure out this disaster of a process, not sure if this is correct or not:
I think we can all guess the response…none.December 28, 2010 at 2:47 pm #276110
@cpagreen – I was trying to figure out whether it would be better to try to retake AUD in January or the end of April. I lose BEC on April 30, so I need to take/pass AUD by then. I'm just worried about the new IFRS material on the exam…I currently don't have any study materials that cover IFRS.December 28, 2010 at 2:58 pm #276111
Is it possible for WI candidates to apply in a NASBA state and then transfer your score back to WI after passing all 4 exams so you can recieve your scores faster. Seems like this should be possible.December 28, 2010 at 3:08 pm #276112
@mike01 – Good idea! This is crazy. At this point we are talking weeks of studying that could be missed by not having our scores. If WI is going to release the scores so late then they should extend the 18 month period.
@07STI- I have access to the 2011 Becker materials online since I purchased 2010 less than 6 months ago and so far there has been very little changes that Becker has presented in chapter 1. I started reviewing chapter 2 last night and I noticed that Becker does break out Compilations into 2 sections for those who will take the exam before June 2011 and after June 2011. What materials are you using?
@Jayz11- Thanks for emailing. Can't hurt to try.December 28, 2010 at 5:37 pm #276113
I've said this before, but I don't understand why WI releases scores so late and who it benefits. Obviously, it is possible to release scores sooner, as other states are doing so. In terms of benefits, Wisconsin candidates certainly aren't on the receiving end. In fact, Wisconsin candidates are at a disadvantage as compared to other states in that they must wait longer to make plans for future testing. Weeks without knowledge of pass/fail = weeks without knowledge of whether or not one should be restudying a failed section or working on a new section. I don't understand why Wisconsin would choose to put its own candidates at a disadvantage. The AICPA closed this window weeks ago, and not only are we still waiting on our scores, but nothing is posted by WI as to when scores should be expected.
