Video: Will the AICPA Review a CPA Exam Grading or Computer Error?

 

 

Max says, “I've heard that you can request the AICPA to review your CPA Exam test to see if there was some sort of grading error in the system. Is this true? If so, is it true for the California State Board of Accountancy?”

The California State Board determines whether or not you can take the exam and they also determine whether or not you can get your license. The California State Board of Accountancy, or whatever it's called there, the CBA I think, they determine whether or not you're eligible to sit for the exam and also your licensing and certificate after you pass.

The exam itself is given by the AICPA, and NASBA, and Prometric. Any issues would go through them.

It's independent of the California State Board.

For instance, if the power goes off during your testing, what's going to happen, and this is what happened during my exam.

I had some issues. I'm like, “Hey, I had this issue.” What happens is they will look into your exam.

Then they come back to you and say either, “You know what? We looked into it. There wasn't an issue. Sorry,” or they'll say…

“Yes, there definitely was an issue. You have two options: You can take the exam again on us, but you'll never see your score or you can accept your results as they stand now.

I think that's what you're going to find.

That was my experience. I think you're probably better off just rolling with it.

Really, it's a $200 or $300 bet because if you get your exam scores, and if you passed, you're done.

If for some reason … If it were me, I would rather just roll with it, get my CPA exam score, and then pay the fee again.

The carrot of a free exam, and not getting my exam score, that wouldn't work for me. I hope that's helpful.
