The CPA Exam pass rates for the third quarter of 2009 have been released and as usual, Q3 is the strongest quarter of the year.
This site was one of the first to start tracking CPA Exam pass rate rate statistics and as I wrote in March 2008, 41-45% of candidates were passing each section.
Now, 45-52% of candidates are passing each section of the exam.
Here is the breakdown for 2009:
Auditing and Attestation:
Business Environment and Concepts:
Financial Accounting and Reporting:
If the fourth quarter of 2009 follows the trend from Q4 2008, scores will dip approx. 9% on average.
