CPA Exam Pass Rates


cpa exam pass rates

The CPA Exam Pass Rate for the last 18 years (2006-2024)


The CPA Evolution Pass Rate data is rather interesting:

  • Gun to my head, I would have guessed TCP to have a pass rate in the 50-60 range. Definitely not 82!
  • FAR surprises me a little because a lot of content was stripped out of the FAR content.
  • BAR does not surprise me. Why anyone chooses BAR is beyond me.
  • ISC seems about right – although if it were in the low 40s, that wouldn't have shocked me either.

The CPA Exam first-time pass rate is around 25% historically.
