CPA Exam Scores and Results Predictions – April/May 2009 – Wave 1

I was 4/4 in Wave 1 of the January/February window and 0/4 for Wave 2. We'll forget Wave 2 ever happened (and assume that the AICPA won't delay BEC or release FAR second again) and march boldly forward with these predictions.

Joanne Vician (who graciously sent me score release info ahead of it being public) at the Illinois Board of Examiners retired after the Jan/Feb 2009 window, but left the readers of this site in good hands with a contact of hers…more to come on that later.

Here we go…

Here are the predictions for the April/May 2009 Wave 1 (NASBA) score release

    • May 18 – BEC
    • May 20 – AUD
    • May 21 – REG
    • May 22 – FAR

Which means that IL, CA, VA, etc will get their scores…

    • May 15 – BEC
    • May 18 – AUD
    • May 19 – REG
    • May 20 – FAR

Like I said, Joanne left the candidates who read this site in good hands…as I get info on score releases, I will pass them along as I can…most likely via Twitter, as I can update it via my phone.


Update 5/11/2009 – NASBA Updates Score Release Process…

Revised NASBA release prediction:

  • May 17 – BEC
  • May 15 – BEC actual NASBA release
  • May 19 – AUD
  • May 19 – AUD actual NASBA release
  • May 20 – REG
  • May 25 – REG actual NASBA release
  • May 21 – FAR
  • May 21 – FAR actual NASBA release

update 5/26/09 – (Two out of four ain't bad…)

update: AICPA released BEC earlier than expected…here's some bold prediction updates (reckless and not for the faint of heart…)

    • May 14 – BEC
    • May 15 – AUD
    • May 18 – REG
    • May 19 – FAR

When is the cutoff for Wave 1?

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

"When is the cutoff for Wave 1?" If the AICPA keeps with their historical cutoff, it's Thursday, May 7

Izabella 12 years ago

i really hope your wrong about your predictions .. and I hope they give the FAR earlier... i will be crying if i get my score right before my birthday and i fail...

I understand about the weekend, but why is there two days between CA, VA & IL release and the NASBA release?

Hi Jeff, Do you know what's going on with cpanet the forum?? It's been down for two days and the only place I can think of is here to ask about it.

Im taking Audit on 5/7. I hope that I meet the cutoff date.

this website is so funny! I cant believe I didn't know about it. what a great way to avoid studying for AUD on Friday!

Do you know if May 7th is the last day of the first wave or the first day of the second wave? Or is May 8th the first day of the second wave? Thanks!!

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

I would say that Wave 2 starts May 8...but keep in mind that 25% (or so) of the Wave 1 people won't get their score.

Denise 12 years ago

Denise: yeah! I got a 74 on my first FAR attempt! =( this site is called another71, so that should clear it up for ya.

Denise 12 years ago

Thanks for the info guys!... I just found this site last night... "74" truly does suck! Whenever I pass (nothing like positive thinking!) I want to look into the scoring of the CPA Exam. It seems so strange to me that those of us w/accounting degrees and backgrounds... and who study for the blasted exams can't get it passed! Definitely frustrating!!! YIPES!

12 years ago

Isn't weird how people react when you tell them you are studying / Sitting for CPA exam? Some with disbelieve and think ?you can?t make it?, the other with ?applaud?, the rest ?stand and to see what happen? I don?t know about you but I am thinking... I can't wait to get over it! and get my normal classy life back!

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

yo Jeff! I never sat for a CPA section so early, but I was wondering if this was normal. I sat for AUD on 4/7/09 and on the state board (CA) site, it still says: "AUD: Schedule/Attendance Pending." Can anyone from CA answer my question? Usually when I take it in the latter of the testing window, it will say AUD: Score Pending - Attended xx/xx/xxxx xx:xx:xx" Thanks in advance!

DT 12 years ago

Hi lmb - latestmusicblog.com I'm in the same boat as you. Took BEC in CA on 4/6/09 but my status still says BEC: Schedule w/Prometric. My previous experience is that it will change to Attended: xx/xx/2009 Score Pending w/in a week. So yesterday I wrote to the board and got a reply in an hr. Here's their reply, hope this helps! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In response to your email, this is normal. There is often a delay from the time a candidate sits for the exam, and the time that sitting is visible in the client account. Approximately 10% of the time, the client account will go from Schedule with Prometric, or a similar message, to the actual exam score. We are aware of the issue. It has absolutely no effect on when a score will be released. Please keep in mind that you only have limited access to one of a number of computer systems involved in this process. It is easy to view that limited amount of information out of context. Sincerely, Stephen Cooley Examination Unit

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

Thanks DT! I really appreciate your response! I've never had this happened before, but your reassurance is wonderful! I hope you rocked BEC! AUD is my last one, so I'm just patiently waiting. What part of CA are you from?

DT 12 years ago

Hi lmb - latestmusicblog.com : I never had this happened b4 either. That's why I was worried. On top of that, the check in computer system at my test center was down. So they took a POLAROID pix + INK thumbprint instead. I thot poloaroid film was extinct! haha Anyways, I'm from LA area.... BEC is my last one altho it's my 2nd attempt. Good Luck in AUD and hope we both get result in 1st wave! (I waited 1.5 month for REG last window!)

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

DT: that's awesome! I'm from LA area as well. Pasadena area specifically. Polaroid and ink thumbprint .. WOW! Interesting, I took REG last window as well! Hopefully we're done after this! How did you do in REG?

DT 12 years ago

lmb - latestmusicblog.com: I live about 10 miles E of Pas...Do you go to the Glendale test center too?! I hate that bldg everytime I drive the 210 now, altho my hubby's work own that bldg...haha! I got 80 on REG which I was really, really shocked! I messed up on sims but suprisingly well on MCs. I've always worked in healthcare acctg, so I have no public acctg experience at all. But so far it's stable. My SIL got layoff recently from EY. But luckily they waited til she finished all her hrs so she can apply for her license now.

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

DT: Nice! I usually go to the testing center at Lake Forrest. It's far, but I've always passed when I went there. Call me superstitious! LOL! I got an 84 on REG! I'm looking for work. It's tough right now. I actually graduated with my BS in Accounting in May 2007. I took a break from school, did some studying for the CPA, and kind of got sidetracked on the way. My cousin from Tucson, AZ was diagnosed with a really rare and aggressive cancer in late May 2008. I pretty much put my life and career on hold and moved to AZ for a short while. I came back in October 2008 and started getting into study mode again. I'd visit once a month. In January 2009, she passed away. It was a hard time for me at the moment and I eventually got back into study mode. I'm just waiting on AUD results now. Sorry for rambling! I was wondering, do you know anywhere hiring at the moment? Thanks for listening, DT! (=

I just took AUD on 4/21/09. I am getting conflicting data on the waves. I took REG in Nov 08 and got my score (76) in Dec 08. I am trying to plan taking FAR and BEC by my "expiration" date. Do the waves mean if I take FAR in Jul 09 I should (hopefully) get my score in Aug 09?... or will it still be in Sep 09?... Any input would be helpful. Thanks

12 years ago

I took REG today 04/27 and my last stimulation was very time consuming and complicated than the rest of the exam. I felt that 3 hours wasn't enough. They should give us extra hours for REG than for Audit.

Izabella 12 years ago

I just took the FAR exam.. oh my gosh.. i know i failed.. that test was ridiculous.. i dont know whether to start studying for this test again.. or should i continue studying for th AUD part which is on the 14th... back to crying and the books

DT 12 years ago

lmb - latestmusicblog.com : to answer to your previous question, sorrie but I dunno who's hiring at the moment. And unfortunately I've been asked that questions from friends lately too :\ Anonymous @ 311p : I agreed that REG should have more time than AUD! For AUD I had time to go back to each testlet and ea sim, took a pee break AND had 1/2 hr left over! What da heck?! Izabella: Move on to AUD! it will be a breeze compare to FARE! You prob did GREAT! :)

12 years ago

Izabella: I took FAR yesterday as well and I walked out of the test feeling like I definitely failed and wanting to cry knowing if I didn't pass this I'm going to loose my hard earned REG credit. I think this horrible feeling in my stomach is going to last until I find out my score. I'm not sure whether to keep studying or just wait. If I were you, since you already purchased the test, just study for AUD.

Izabella 12 years ago

Thank you guys ! Thanks to Jeff this website keeps me sane!!

Izabella 12 years ago

is it srupid that my hands are itching to check my score already and i just took the test on Monday.

JK 12 years ago

I took the FAR on the 18th of April and I felt like I failed as I walked out of the exam, but I'm prepared for round 2 if it comes down to it. lol. The estimated release date is May 22 for FAR, but I'm taking BEC on May 28. With that being said, I won't check my score until I'm finished with BEC otherwise my confidence may take a hit.. The misery this exam brings upon us!

Chris from Charlotte 12 years ago

The worst is taking the test in the beginning a a testing window. My first three exams I took 11/27/08, 1/27/09, and 2/28/09- and I got the grade back fairly timely- three to four weeks. I just took AUD on 04/11/09, and I feel like I've been waiting a lifetime for what could be (fingers crossed) my last part of this exhausting exam, in full knowledge that I still have to wait 3-4 more weeks for the grade. My advice to future CPA exam-takers- take the exam in the last week of the month. Surely this won't apply to everyone, but if you lose sleep over your exam grade, and you hate playing the waiting game- try taking the exam towards the last week or weekend in the testing month. Jeff you are awesome and your site has been helpful throughout this rigorous "waiting game."

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

Chris from Charlotte: yup, but with CPA, you want to take it when it's fresh in your mind. I took all my tests late except for this one late in the window as well and I took AUD on 04/07/09 and its my last one. I completely understand where you come from. I was so ready to take it early that I didn't want to wait in case of memory loss, so now i'm suffering and waiting now, but you're not alone!

Jen 12 years ago

Hello, love this website! I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether all tests taken in a window are released by the second wave? So for example, if I take a part in late May am I guarenteed to find out in the second wave (June) or is there a possibilty I still might not find out til July? Thanks!

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

Jen: If you take it in the April-May window, you'll get your results before the July-August window. So yes, you will get a score by July.

Aaron 12 years ago

Well...I sat for FAR for the second time after I said I was going to throw in the towel after failing REG twice. I feel like a did great...although I put some serious hours (away from home) into studying for FAR. I walked out feeling pretty confident. I hope it doesn't bite me in the @$$.

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

no one has posted lately! i'm super anxious for wave 1 results .. where did everyone go??

J 12 years ago

So I'm scheduled to take my 3rd exam (AUD) the day after the score release for FAR is expected to come out! Who thinks I should look at the score the night before?! Or, just wait for the bad news after I take my AUD exam?!

RP 12 years ago

Don't worry, everyone will show up again when it gets close to the prediction of the score release date.

Chris from Charlotte 12 years ago

I share your anxiety for wave 1 grades Imb.

Izabella 12 years ago

im taking audit on the 14th.. Kind of wish i were taking it before wave 1 testing window closes....

DM 12 years ago

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

I hope it goes well for you DM (and you're included in Wave 1!) -Jeff

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Izabella - look at it this way...you're trading a 75% chance of getting your score in Wave 1 for an extra week of studying. Not a bad trade I'd say.

ADF 12 years ago

Okay I need to complain. I won't ever schedule an exam for the beginning of the window again. This is my first go-round. I took audit on April 3rd and this wait is hurting me. If May 20 is the predicted release date, and I'm scheduled for BEC on May 22, do you all suggest I look at my scores before I take BEC or wait until after? I don't want to psych myself out!

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

ADF - it doesn't matter what we recommend...you'll still look :)

lwk 12 years ago

I took my FAR for the second time 4/07/09. I am waiting now.

Aaron 12 years ago

I take Audit on May 26. I just took FAR and feel like I passed because I put in the time this go around...but how does Audit stack up to FAR. Any suggestions on how to study for AUD? And different methods than FAR?

PJ 12 years ago

Taking FAR for the first time in 2 weeks and starting to freak out ... any words of advice?

Joey Altruda 12 years ago

PJ, Advice: Start to freak out more. The more you freak out, the better. You'll lose sleep, hair, & probably a few days off your life. Allow yourself to totally lose it. You will be consumed by the exam experience...completely comsumed. Of course, don't stop studying. Study while at work. Study while you eat. Study while you're in the shower. Study while you walk the dog. Then you will sit down in front of the cheap HP computer terminal at the testing center. You will start clicking on the cheap little mouse. And then you will think to yourself, "Gee, this isn't so bad. I shouldn't have freaked out so much!" And then, in the quickest 4 hours of your life, it will be over. You'll see.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Joey nailed it...

Jeff R. 12 years ago

Joey, No offense, but that is the worst advice I have ever heard one person give to another person about this exam. Seriously, I hope that was an attempt at dry humor. PJ, it's really not that bad. This exam is different for everyone and what may cause one person to struggle may be a breeze for you. Just study as much as you think you need (that is, if you think you need to review something, don't talk yourself out of reviewing, just sit down and do it), and come test time, if you are prepared, you will have the same reaction that Joey specified and will still keep those few days you would lose under the above poster's plan. Stress to the point of burnout is one of the worst ways to approach this exam or anything major in life. If you stress yourself out, you won't be able to think straight then you will fail.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

I think Joey was being facetious about freaking out...I could be wrong.

Amy in Philadelphia 12 years ago

ADF... I'll tell you my little story. I took BEC in October and REG in November. I just knew I failed BEC and was annoyed with all the time I put in, so I was pretty half hearted studying for REG. The BEC scores came in 5 days before I sat for REG, so I checked to see how bad I did & I got a 78! That gave me the push I needed to heavily review REG.

Nearly There 12 years ago

Just took FAR on April 5th... For PJ: You shouldn't freak out, don't be afraid of the exam. I have taken FAR twice and the first time I went in fearing this exam and expecting defeat, and that's just what happened. You have to keep a positive attitude, but don't be over confident. FAR is a tough exam with a lot of material is less time, but it can be passed. And remember, even if you do fail, you can take it again. Just keep on studying and get some rest and pray like hell that the people you test with are idiots and there's a massive curve ;) Good Luck!

PJ 12 years ago

Thanks for your help guys! This site is great! back to the books..

Izabella 12 years ago

I actually think Joey was a hundred percent correct... I know how i freaked out for my test. Studied everywhere I went, everywhere I ate, even when I was sleeping (nightmares and dreams of material is not fun). Come the test and my response was "this is doable." My true opinion is not that the test is hard. It's not!!! The test is definitely doable .. the two things that get me crazy is 1) fininding the TIME to study and 2) retaining all the information that I just studied. Otherwise, the test could be much trickier than it is.. Much harder, and def ask more detailed question. All I can say is, Anyone can do this... Do not give up.. Definitely study.. If you dont have time to study, then find it... That is all i have to say.> Ok back to studying on my lunch break.

Eddie 12 years ago

After I took Reg yesterday on the drive home the radio station played Tom Petty's song The Waiting... Now I wont be able to get it out of my head until I get my grade which will hopefully be on May 21...

Joey Altruda 12 years ago

Thanks for the kind words, Izabella. And, yes, I was joking about totally freaking out like a crazy person. But most of us do it....Look, a lot of time, effort, $$$ has been spent and a lot is at stake. Of course we're going to be nervous & possibly psyche ourselves out! Go ahead and FREAK OUT! However: keep your compass pointing North. My point earlier was that after all the drama, after all mind-bending expectations, it is just a test. And it really is not that bad. Once you are sitting in that testing center doing your thing, you will realize that the exam is not that bad...especially after all of the incredible build-up going into it. Trust me. I am veteran at these damn tests. And I have done a lot (a LOT) of freaking out over the past couple years. So go ahead & freak out. The more you do probably means you're serious about completing your mission of passing & getting licensed. And one day, hopefully soon, I will get there. And you will too.

Char 12 years ago

I took Aud on april 1st, still waiting for the result. My sis had passed all her four parts, and all her test results came out in about one month after she took the exams. its been 38 days since i took the exam. does that mean my score is between 73-76? thats why it took so long to release my score? anyone?? thanks

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Char - your sister must have sat for her exams at the end of the window, which is why she got all of her scores within a month. Example using last window: she sat for her exams in the last week of February and got her scores between March 15 - March 25 or so. You sat for your exam in early April...scores don't come out until mid-May or mid-June depending on if your score was made available in Wave one. Don't read into it at all...it's just how this process goes. G/L -Jeff

Teague719 12 years ago

This is a great site-a support system indeed. I got my accounting degree and MBA from Asia 16 years ago. I quit my $120k/yr job a few months ago to study and sit for the US CPA uniform test. I know, I know!!!! But this is something I needed to do for my sake. Devoted 3 months to review for the 4 sections. Passed the 3( AUD, BEC, FAR) all in Feb of 2009-but failed REG of all sections. I thought I could easily pass REG-that's why I only devoted 60 hours of review time to it-10 hours more than I spent in BEC. After the REG test-I felt like I am going to have a nose-bleed. After the 3 MCQs, I only had an hour left for the 2 sims-needless to say, I didn't finish the 2nd sim. I took REG for the second time 1st week of May. But this time I came prepared. I used two materials, Wiley and BISK. The first MCQs and SIMS I took using these materials, i scored around 82%. The second time I retook the sample tests(2 days before my actual REG) test, I got 92 in almost all topics. The secret-knowing my mistakes in the tests is not enough. i had to know why I arrived at a wrong answer to minimize the likelihood of making the same mistake next time around. I am very optimistic I did well in the actual test. I finished the 3 MCQs within 1 hr and 12 minutes. I finished my 2 SIMS feeling good. If I don't pass REG this time around, then something's wrong with my head. I'll post an update after I receive my score. Good luck to all of us.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

CA/IL/VA scores remain unchanged...good question

Cool, so the updated NASBA prediction is a day early than origanally expected. I guess it's almost time to get back to keep pressing refresh.

BEC will post on Sunday??

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Sunday night...I think so anyway...

12 years ago

The Sunday night posting of NASBA scores makes no sense. In the past, if IL got grades on Friday, NASBA uploaded them Monday morning. Now, it seems as though NASBA would post scores on Friday evening between 9 pm and midnight. At least that is how I interpret what you posted.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

You're right...that doesn't make much sense...let me think about it more.

Izabella 12 years ago

this is so confusing.. i am not understanding... i am so burnt out with studying that a simple shift in schedule is confusing me.. I just want my score. :(

Lawrence 12 years ago

Wow, I'm sitting at work and I just discovered this site. It's so nice to know so many others are out there freaking out about their scores too :) I'm rather new at this, first time through, I have AUD and REG down waiting to hear back on FAR (4/16/09) and have BEC at the end of the month. I didn't know they actually told anyone the dates for score releases, of course thats not going to stop the checking of the score releases every hour, just in case. I just read through a number of posts and got a few chuckles. Though I must say, waiting almost 3 months to find out my first 2 scores didnt help.

RP 12 years ago

If that's the case, then now there's a possibility that we might receive our score on a saturday.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

k...this is what they're shooting for (if my updated predictions contradict this, I'll change them later...) AICPA Thursday release = NASBA Sunday evening (11pm-ish) AICPA Friday release = NASBA Monday evening (11pm-ish)

Matt 12 years ago

I took Reg back in late April and I have to say that the first SIM was un-godly difficult. It was more of a FAR SIM as opposed to a REG one. The 2nd SIM was fairly basic. The 2nd and 3rd Multiple Choice question banks were also increasingly more difficult. I am pretty pissed about that first SIM and I will be really devestated if I fail because of it. Did anyone else encounter such nastiness when they took REG within the past month or so?

12 years ago

Jeff, Is the AICPA release date a day sooner than the IL release date? If not, that actually seems like it would be longer, not sooner. Example: Last window, the AUD results were posted by IL on Friday. NASBA posted the grades on Monday morning.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

The AICPA release is the same as the Illinois/California release. When the AICPA releases scores...IL/CA/VA release the same day usually. The new formula is AICPA + 1 day (11pm-ish), except for Thurs/Friday AICPA release. ex: Illinois gets their score on Wednesday...NASBA Thursday night. Illinois gets their score on Thursday...NASBA Sunday night Illinois gets their score Friday...NASBA Monday night. Hope this helps..

12 years ago

Does anyone know any information for PA? Does PA follow the same schedule?

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

yes - PA - and all states who use NASBA for CPA Exam score relase will follow this...

12 years ago

I don't know how that is better. Old Way: IL scores released Thursday-NASBA Friday morning New Way: IL Scores released Thursday-NASBA Sunday night????? Old Way: IL scores released Friday-NASBA Monday morning New Way: IL scores released Friday-Nasba Monday night??????

Joe 12 years ago

Jeff, I took REG on May 7 at 11:30 AM. Barring it does not fall into the 25% that is reported in the second wave anyway, do I stand a good chance of receiving my score in the first wave. Meaning did I make the cut for the first wave. Thanks

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

old way: IL Thursday = NASBA Monday IL Friday = NASBA Tuesday

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

May 7 should be the cutoff, so you stand a good chance of being in Wave 1...G/L Joe

12 years ago

I hate to harp on this, but that isn't the way it worked last window. IL, CA and VA got AUD results on Friday, March 20. NASBA scores were not posted over the weekend. However, they were available early Monday, March 23. Why do you say a release to IL on Friday is NASBA Tuesday?

Izabella 12 years ago

thank god im not the only one confused by this.... I think i get it now though.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Valid point on AUD...I went back and looked...Joanne e-mailed me on the 19th (Thursday) to tell me scores were coming out for AUD Friday...which leads me to believe that the AICPA actually released them on late Thursday night because they started popping up in California about 3am PST. AICPA Thurs = NASBA Sunday AICPA Fri = NASBA Monday ...is still a good rule of thumb.

Michelle 12 years ago

I just came across this site yesterday, but it's great. I've passed three of the four parts. I took FAR on April 27th and I don't think I can wait until next week to get my score. I never knew all of this information before so it's nice to finally know that there's a system to the reporting. Before I would be checking all day everyday. I took BEC on Jan 5th and I checked everyday for almost 7 weeks. Thanks Jeff for this site. I'm not as stressed anymore. Hopefully I passed FAR and I can be done. I got a 74 on it the first time I took it.

12 years ago

This is so exciting. I had assumed the waves followed a monthly schedule and since I took BEC on May 5th I would have to wait until late June to get my score. Hopefully it won't be in the 25% not released.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

If you have found the site to be loading slow - that's because there's a lot of people on right now (i.e. this time in the testing window). I've disabled some of the things like the video bar, cleaned up the side bar, and dropped the number of posts that appear on the front page. Hopefully you'll find that the site loads faster...let me know if you have any problems. Thanks again for reading, Jeff

Kristine 12 years ago

This is such a great website with really good information. It's nice to see that I am not the only person out there stressing. I had 3 parts passed and could not pass BEC (72 on the last attempt) so I lost FAR at the end of February. I am a tax accountant so I drastically cut back on my hours during tax season so I could take BEC again on April 3rd (waiting for score now) because I knew I needed to take FAR again in May (scheduled for the 27th) because I lose REG on the 31st. It is extremely stressful to know that for the last almost 2 years I feel like all I have done is work and study and was so close to actual being a CPA. The only relief I see is that hopefully, fingers crossed, I passed BEC and will pass FAR in 2 weeks. If that is the case, at least then, I can stop studying until I find out my FAR results. The 18th is my birthday though, so if there is no good news, I would prefer to not receive my score then! This website is helping me to not lose all of my sanity while trying to become a CPA. I wish everybody the best of luck while waiting for their scores and studying.

DM 12 years ago

wow.. a lot sooner than I expected. should I be concerned now that my score won't get released in the first batch if I waited until the predicted last day of the first window?

Anonymous 12 years ago

Jeff, If you look at JAN/FEB 09 Wave 1 -- AUD was release by Illinois Thursday the 19th, and was Released by NASBA Friday Early AM. You are saying that now instead of Friday Morning it will be Friday night? I think instead it would be late Thursday PM. Previously, they would both receive scores on a day, Illinois system would update real-time, but NASBA had to run a batch update early in the AM. With the new way, aren't they changing it so it runs 6 hours earlier? So it would be late Thursday PM? Just how I am understanding the new system.

Phyllis 12 years ago

I asked Jeff the same question yesterday. It seemed that with EVERY Illinois release in the last scoring window,both waves, NASBA updated the next business day.

12 years ago

Okay, I know I'm not the only one, but waiting for the score is killing me. I can't sleep for over a week now, when the release date get closer, my situation is even worst!

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

I don't know if you were around last window or not, but if you were, you may recall that IL had problems with their IT system and they were delayed. old way: CA + 2 days new way: CA + 1 day...and then come out around 11pm CA doesn't post online updates to the public like IL does, but CA candidates will let us know when scores come out for sure.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Those are NASBA...please don't hold me to that...it's an aggressive schedule reflecting that fact that NASBA is trying to expedite the process and get scores out ASAP...they just have a few more hoops that they have to jump through b/c they represent so many state boards. If NASBA releases BEC tomorrow night, I won't be shocked...that's all I'm saying...don't hate me for saying that though if it doesn't happen...if I were a betting man, I'd say it's 40/60 Thursday/Friday pm. (I hope this is helpful...I'll keep what I'm thinking to myself if it causes anxiety or frustration if it doesn't happen :) )

Your CPA score isn't like your college GPA...it's not normal for people to ask you what your scores were. There is no difference between a 75 and a 95...a CPA is a CPA.

I want 300 points, no more and don't need anymore than 300 to be a CPA!!

KG 12 years ago

It seems like scores on the CPA exam only matter in two regards: 1. You passed OR 2. You passed and received the Elijah Watts Sells award. I had an instructor in my accounting class that scored one of the highest scores on the exam in early 2000's. She was featured in the Washington Post, yada, yada, yada, and after only a few years, made partner at her firm. Of course, she was wicked smart and incredibly driven, which may be the bigger deciding factor in her success. My husband gets hung up on the score too, but that's because he's in a world where 75=C, not 75=cause for serious celebration.

chris 12 years ago

tell your husband that he should take you to a nice steak dinner for getting your 75! what does your husband do? If he has nothing to do with accounting, he will never understand.

I can't think of a single educational background (unless they've been to medical school...but even then they'll be hiring a CPA to minimize their tax exposure) that would give someone the wherewithal to look down their nose at a 75 on the CPA Exam. Look at it this way: 50-55% of people get an "F" each window.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

re: "does this mean that AUD scores (NASBA) will be out tomorrow?" BEC scores will likely be out tomorrow via NASBA...*some* chance it could happen tonight. We'll see when the AICPA releases AUD...everything hinges on that.

12 years ago

This is definitely repetitive, but in your conversations with the AICPA recently have they confirmed when scores are released? Meaning- If BEC is up for NASBA tomorrow AM or PM, then does that automatically mean scores for AUD wont be up until Monday? I wasnt sure if they clarified whether scores are posted at all on the weekend (either saturday morning or not) THanks!!! anxious.........cross the fingers and toes

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

The AICPA releases scores on the weekend...and NASBA runs their processes 7 days a week. If the AICPA releases on a Saturday though, NASBA is closed and some of the things that they have to do won't happen until Monday with a hopeful Monday pm release. That's my current understanding of the process, anyway.

12 years ago

Hi Jeff, I have a question.... On Kentucky's website when I log in to look at the BEC scores that posted today, it says "The latest exam section scores available in this application are 4/24/2009". Do you think that this means that the cutoff for Wave 1 is 4/24/09? I am waiting on FAR. I sat on 4/27....I was really hoping to be in the Wave 1 release. Thanks!

12 years ago

So basically if ILL/CA scores for AUD are out tomorrow then there is a chance for NASBA AUD scores this weekend....crazyy

Unfortunately I am not one of those people where I pick up things intuitively. I studied and studied and studied both times. I think that I will really be crushed if I failed. Anyone have an answer to my question on the best place to check scores? The only place I know of is the Texas State Board Site. Does NASBA have Texas scores too?

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Wave 1 has been the 7th day of Month #2 since I've been tracking it...if you sat April 24th - no worries. With that said - something else might cause you to be Wave 2...but not your testing date as far as I know.

12:00PM BEC release in Eastern time? Can't wait...first attempt in BEC, hopefully when I check, there will be a MAGIC number. Please don't be another71 or 74.

Good luck to both of us. With the schedule moved up at least you'll know for sure about REG when you walk into BEC. I hate uncertainty. I'd rather know, whether or not the news is good. So here's to good news....

Hi Nan, Donna and CA! I passed with an 82 on BEC here in Texas. Life is good! I'm glad to hear that I am not the only "mature" person who decided to take on this punishment. I'm 41 and absolutely stressed out of my mind. This news, does, however, mean that I will have a great weekend and now be able to concentrate on studying for REG. I thought that I absolutely nailed the first test and came up short with a 73. On the second attempt, I was sure that I failed it and came up with an 82. Unbelievable. Time to put the ocd score checking behind me! Have a great weekend everyone.

Phyllis 12 years ago

Donna & Nan, You are not alone. I am almost 39 years old and the mother of five-18,14,13,11,8, I felt "unfinished", so I started college in 2004. Next thing you know, I graduated in 2008 and went from working part-time nights to full-time days. I thought it would be more "fulfilling." I don't know what I was thinking. Now I get to add the stress of studying for this test onto a crazy schedule and a full-time job. Honestly, I should have just left well enought alone. Nobody had any expectations of me when I was the uneducated, stay-at-home mom of five children. Now, I can't go back. Here's hoping we all pass the sections we are waiting for so we can be that much closer to being done!!!

MillerTime 12 years ago

"I second that. I emailed him saying he should advertise it but he ?felt bad?. I think the small donations will easily tally." He obviously does that with the "discounts" he gives you guys for Yaegar. See above in the top right. Yes, you are getting a small discount, but by inputing discount code, its another way to determine how many referals he brings in for them and he gets a cut of every referal. So please don't feel sorry.

@ Angry cpa and all the other negative people What is with all of the Jeff bashing? If you check the posts on this thread and those of previous waves and you will see he often is correct. Now, when I say correct, I mean he is reasonably close. He may not have hit it on the exact day but, he gave you a frame of reference. Without his predictions, I'd probably be submitting from the time I finish the exam until the scores get released (whenever that may be). So, how about a little appreciation for the perspective he does give you. Think of where you would be otherwise. As for the donations / ad revenue... of course he needs to make some money. The guy is done with the CPA exam and has to pay for this website to keep it running. I say it is only fair that he receive some income (he probably is lucky to break even) for the work he puts into this. If you want to be mad at anyone, be mad at the AICPA for running the most ridiculously complex and confounding certification program out there.

I've worked in IT long enough that I understand, all too well, when there is a system failure. Everyone is SOOOO accustomed to having instant real-time updates, and when a system crashes (as apparently happened with the NASBA score updating last night) nobody has any patience. When you're still troubleshooting a problem, it's impossible to say how long the fix will take. And even when the primary failure is fixed, you may still have to re-load the software and databases, and THEN you have to do data integrity verification before bringing the system back on line. Things were a lot more peaceful when scores came in the mail, and the mail truck only came once a day. That said, I'll just stick my nose back into my REG book and wait for an update. Hopefully Jeff's NASBA contact will e-mail him when they have a new projected score posting time.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I sure hope NASBA didn't screw this thing up worse by tinkering with the IT stuff. And why in the heck has AICPA not released the 2nd section yet ? They always fart around with this thing....never fails !! So they released BEC early; that is not good enough; BEC is easy to grade. And that reminds me, I'm glad the AICPA Rep. gave Jeff answers to many questions, but that the guy gave some cocky answers that kind of ticked me off. For instance, he said, "there is no curve and each score is independent of other candidates." That is complete horse puckey, and he knows it is. Pschometrics is a form of a curve. It has everything in the world to do with the performance of the group.

CPA-007 12 years ago

This is the reply I got from the MN co-ordinator: Exams are scored and released at the same time during each testing window. All candidates should be advised that the 1st wave of score release will occur at the end of the 2nd month of the current testing window (May). Those scores should be available on-line or by mail no later than the 1st week of the dead month (June). The second wave of scores will occur around the end of the dead month (June). Those scores should be available on-line or by mail no later than the 15th day of the new testing window (July). NASBA is unable to determine in which wave an individual candidate's score will be released by the AICPA. Also note that taking the exam early in the window does not guarantee that a candidate's score will be released in the 1st wave. Candidates cannot request a second copy of scores for the current window until the 1st day of the new testing window (July). Exam scores are only available by U.S. Mail.

Donna (TX) 12 years ago

Question-If scores are released by the State Board of the state you live (in my case, TX), then I should not be concerned with what happens with NASBA? NASBA releases scores for those states that do not release them directly to their candidates? Want to make sure I understand all this stuff! Thanks!

ANS 12 years ago

Donna - I am also in Texas. I really think the days our scores are released are the day after they are released from NASBA. I could be wrong, but that is what I've gathered from this site. I have checked when my grades were posted for my last 3 exams against when Jeff stated that they were reported, and that seems to be the case. Am waiting for my REG grade back. I took it 4/7/09 and it's my last one. I am DYING! If I need to study already then just bring it on. Put me out of my misery.

Nan 12 years ago

Way back when I had a sales job where we created made-to-order products. They told us to never give the customer the actual expected completion date. Some 15% of the time it would be later, and those customers would be unhappy because we did not deliver "on time." Instead they told us to add a few days to the expected completion date. The 85% of customers whose products were ready on the real completion date would be thrilled to get "early" delivery, and the rest would also be happy with "on time" delivery. Last night I kind of felt like the customer who got his product "late", when the updated BEC score release forecast was thwarted by IT problems. But all that really happened was the folks who get scores through NASBA appear to be back to the original projected score release dates. Doesn't change my score either way. I passed or I didn't; I can't go back and change that now.

Jeff: Does that mean that IL,CA,VA, etc. will get their AUD results later today? possibly?

ddt1 12 years ago

I'm in California. The Board told me scores are being released randomly and to keep checking online. I'm trying to remain patient, but the waiting really sucks. Nonetheless...I know that eventually I will have the scores...Being upset doesn't do anything to get them any quicker- so I think I'll get back to doing what I'm supposed to be doing...

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

MillerTime: No, it does not mean you failed BEC! It takes time to process depending on what state you're in and also not all of the test results get processed for Wave 1. Just waiting patiently. Atleast give it a few days.

Elderly Woman Behind Counter in a Small Town 12 years ago

So Audit was released today but nobody has BEC yet? I'm confused.

lmb - latestmusicblog.com 12 years ago

AUD has not been released. Some people have received BEC scores, but it's still being released. Patience is key!

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Auditing was released to CA/IL/Nasba, etc. CA/IL will probably release AUD sometime today (just a guess...send hate mail if I'm wrong...haha)...NASBA will release BEC if they get their system fixed tonight...probably release AUD over the weekend or Monday...dunno.

12 years ago

Jeff, Has anyone every gotten their score on a Saturday Morning?

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Here's the process: 1. AICPA releases to everyone 2. CA/IL etc usually release pretty quickly 3. NASBA has to wait a day or so to do something with the states 4. NASBA uploads scores 5. NASBA releases Currently, BEC is in step 4 for NASBA. AUD is in step 3 for NASBA. I hope I didn't just create confusion...

I'm in VA and I've got scores on Saturday before. That is, before they "upgraded" their system and scores no longer get uploaded to the website. The 2 sections I passed before they upgraded are on the new site but the section I passed in January that was released in March (after the "upgrade") along with everybody else I know never got their score posted even though we all got the results over the phone and by mail. What a terrible upgrade, gotta call to get your score and then still sweat it out till you see it with your own eyes in the mail. Now I'm just waiting on AUD so I can be done for good.

okay...so someone on here that has taken through TN has received their scores. A person I know that took it the same day as me found out tonight, but for some reason my score isn't up. I'm tired, but keep thinking "any minute." I have a feeling something is wrong with me in their system. My first test score (audit) wasn't put up online because they just changed their laws to reflect being able to receive scores before completing 150 hours. So I got the last one by paper, I'm wondering if this has something to do with it. Although I thought all that was cleared up and good to go.

Stephen 12 years ago

listened to the show Jeff, tired to comment but took too long to register on the site. Didn't have any questions, luckily I only learned FAS 141R and not 141.

You're lucky Stephen. We ran out of time, but Phil wanted me to mention that people sitting in July could very well could see original 141 questions b/c they could still be in the test bank until they get all of the originals purged.

I'm going to say Monday at this point...unfortunately. With AUD not coming out yet via CA - I think you're looking at Monday. Good night everyone

Nan 12 years ago

"nan, you did well on AUD; what study material do you use?" FAR - 85 (Nov 08), AUD - 98 (Feb 09), BEC - 88 (Apr 09). All first time. REG next week, score in Wave 2. I'm using the whole kit-and-kaboodle Becker package - CD-ROM course, Flashcards, and Final Review (cram) product. The local university instructors recommended Becker as the best "but it will be expensive," or Gleim as the next-best for folks on a budget. So those are the only two I took a serious look at. They even had an arrangement with Gleim for former students to get a discounted price. (No such luck with Becker.)

cpa_hopeful 12 years ago

From what I understand, it is highly doubtful that NASBA will post AUD scores over the weekend. Once they get the scores, they have to do some kind of confirmation with the states before they can post scores. Since the AICPA didn't release the AUD scores to NASBA until Friday afternoon, I can't imagine they had time to get that confirmation from the state Boards.

To everyone who finally passed after repeated attempts... And to everyone who fell short, but is determined to try once more... I really admire your tenacious effort. I know how dismal it is, and how little support I have had, after multiple failures. And I know how difficult, but yet how necessary, it is to get up and keep going, acting as if the failures were successes and as if the vultures circling over me were actually eagles lifting me up. You folks are truly the bold and brave, with inner fire and spirit to be admired. You will make it wherever you go in life. I only wish there were more people like you.

On FAR, REG, and AUD, if you were "lucky" enough to get a new sim, you might automatically be kicked into Wave 2 no matter how early you tested. That's because the AICPA waits until they have a statistically sufficient quantity of test-takers with the new sim before they finalize the grades on it.

Nan, "And to everyone who fell short, but is determined to try once more?" Thanks for keeping a positive outlook! I've been following Jeff's blog for its therapeutic and comic value since about November of last year when I started this adventure, and it seems like there are a lot more negative comment posters this window. I enjoy the supportive and comic posts a whole lot more. Jeff, Thanks for taking the chance and posting the "reckless" predictions. I didn't receive my AUD score (GA), but it made Friday at work a whole lot more interesting just following the comments here and hoping.

This was an experiment...seeing how fast the page would load if I put it on one page. I can see that it's slow now...I'll mess around with the optimal comments per page and try to install a plugin that numbers the pages. Really, the only thing I don't like is when people are rude to other posters and try to make them feel bad for sharing their scores. I can handle the trolls (really, it's just frustration at not getting scores)...it's people being rude to other posters for absolutely no reason that I don't like.

Kushal, Unfortunately, if you see a 67 when you sign on, then that is your score. Why are you taking the four exams so close together? BEC on the 8th, FAR on the 14th, AUD on the 20th, REG on the 30th??? It sounds like you probably spread yourself too thin.

Donna (TX) 12 years ago

I'm scheduled to take BEC on Thursday, but I'm so not ready! Was going to reschedule it for end of month, but come to find out Prometric never sent me my confirmation email. So I thought maybe it didn't get processed, but when I try to schedule a "new appt" and enter my session ID it says that ID has been used already!! URGGGGGGGGG! So, can't do anything about it today since all is closed and I lost 5 hours of study time b/c I was so frustrated and couldn't focus. This late in the game I doubt there are any time slots left since it's the end of a testing window. I'm so impatient so that makes me more frustrated not being able to find out. Surprisingly, I'm not nearly as anxious about waiting for my REG score to come out this week-I know, weird! Sorry, needed to vent.

Donna (TX) 12 years ago

If I can't push it back to end of May, I'm seriously thinking of moving it to July 1 since I have till July 21 to take it. Not sure though-any input???

Any news/guesses of when to expect REG from NASBA?

Hypnochick 12 years ago

Donna: I took a cram approach towards BEC and although I studied and studied, I missed it by two points. Fortunately I passed on the second try. With REG, I am taking two months to study. One thing that you might want to look at with regards to scheduling is that you can take the test in a variety of different locations. Not sure where you live, but even if you had to drive a bit to take the test, it might be worth it if you felt that you would actually be ready at the end of May. Perhaps you could find an open spot in a more remote location. I wouldn't assume that you can't reschedule. On the other hand, if you think that you need the month of June to study, it's better to take it and pass. Good luck!!!!! :)

Hypnochick 12 years ago

Hey Donna. Duh. I didn't see that you are from Texas. I am in Houston. There are testing sites everywhere! I guess it depends on whether or not you can changes locations when you reschedule.

Hey Donna. Just got back on. Studying for REG. Try San Antonio first, then San Marcos and Austin to see what looks available. I think that this will be in the order of what would be closest to you. Houston also has lots of locations. The Woodlands also has testing, but it would be a haul!

M 12 years ago

I can handle tuesday night hah. Hopefully it will make my Memorial Day weekend a lot better. Wouldn't be too much fun failing the final section hah.

Keep up the good work with the site.

Hypnochick 12 years ago

I have only taken BEC. But I underestimated it and all of the stupid cost accounting. (but I am not bitter - ha ha ha). I had planned on taking Audit at the end of May, but when I found out that I failed BEC, (took at end of Feb)I decided to retake it in early April. After retaking it, I was having trouble getting motivated to study for Audit (since I didn't have my BEC grade) and decided to study for REG for two months instead of doing AUD and REG over two months. If you are ready, I would take it as late as possible in May.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

btw Hypnochick...thanks for the site donation...much appreciated.

i take AUD this Wednesday any kind of tips or information regarding AUD please share would really appreciate it im already super low & demotivated with my BEC score... =( so please peeps...

Hypnochick 12 years ago

Donna. I have only taken BEC, but I have taken it twice. I took it for the first time at the end of Feb. I found out that I missed it by 2 points at the end of March and retook it April 9. I am now studying for REG. I had originally planned to take AUD in May and REG the first part of July, but I pushed AUD back. I think that I will do better taking two months to pass each part rather than pushing it. I really appreciated Jeff's comments about how he felt so "stupid" by not passing. I work with someone who passed on 4 parts on the first try. I also made the mistake of telling everyone at work that I was taking the exam. Then, three weeks later people started asking me how I did and I had to spew the bad news. This next test time I will keep my mouth shut! Try San Antonio, then SAn Marcus then Austin. I think that those testing sites would be the next closest. You could always make the long drive to Houston. There are testing centers everywhere!

Hypnochick 12 years ago

Sorry about the bad news kushal. I would suggest pushing some of your tests back....... Cramming didn't work for me. You can do it. Don't be too hard on yourself. Lots of people don't even make the effort to study and take the exam. Good luck with Audit.

I have already spent big $$$ on Becker, but the idea of having something on my IPOD appeals to me. How does that work? Does it just give you definitional information? I am hesistant to spend more money, but if it was something additional that could use in the gym or in my car,(i.e. when I not at home studying the Becker stuff, I might be up for buying it. Please advise. Thanks!

Donna(TX) 12 years ago

I looked at my calendar & can rearrange some things so that I'll have 6 full days of review (already gone through review course/mcq-been doing this for past 4 weeks-just didn't give myself enough time for review). So hopefully I can find a testing center with a slot open on the 29 or 30. I'll know tomorrow....

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Hypnochick, The audios are good if you have time to listen to them while doing something other than driving. I listened to them at the gym, as well as while mindlessing formatting spreadsheets at work. They definitely re-inforce the concepts if you can listen to them 3-4 times all the way through. My friend has a 2 hour round trip commute and he listens to them in the car every day...it worked for him...I just am not one who can do that...I need blaring music.

Nan 12 years ago

Jeff, 100 posts per page is perfect for me. NASBA posted BEC scores just after 8pm Central Time on Friday. I had the NASBA website open and my info saved. I just kept flipping back to the page every 5 to 15 minutes all day long Thursday and Friday and hitting the Submit button. Everytime I did it the screen blanked for a second, and my heart skipped a beat. Then suddenly..... without warning..... I saw a score. A passing score. And the earth stopped turning on its axis. I just sat there and stared. Then I started making phone calls. Didn't get much studying done the rest of the evening. But when I sat back down to study my final section I felt so relaxed, and was able to concentrate so much better. 4 more days now and I get my life back!

Donna- if you have already reviewed for 4 weeks and still have a couple days more to review...i would definitely still try and take it this window. Worst case scenario is that you do not pass in which case you just schedule next window. You would only be out the application fees, but there still would be a good chance you will pass.

12 years ago

I am taking the exams in Illinois and have yet to receive my Audit score...I am kind of skeptical as to the 2 or 3 posts that mentioned that they had received their AUD scores in IL. I took AUD on April 3, so I have a good chance of receiving it in Wave 1. The other reason that I am skeptical is because ILBOA has not updated their website, via their 'breaking news' section. Usually they update that with what exams are releassed and the percent of total exams that are released. Just wondering if anyone else has received their AUD scores in ILLINOIS.

No AUD in MA today...yet. About to have a massive coronary here... EST here, so does that mean "tonight" means by midnight or else not till tomorrow? I'm concerned because Illinois hasnt posted an announcement about AUD scores being released yet...

I called VA board this morning for AUD too. I got the same answer as "Anonymous" above. I am hoping to get my score this week - I will just call them agin this Friday but won't keep calling. I feel my score could be released in wave 2 since my 2nd simulations seems so new that they could be new simulations never tested before. But I feel I should have passed it. Just need to wait to see my score. REG on 5/29/09. No more wasting time. Thanks for this website keep me informed!

"Another 71 Please answer my question. I took BEC on May 8th and have not recieved my score yet. I know that the wave ended on May 8th becuase someone left a post above that took the exam on May 8th got the score. Is BEC going to be released in batches? Does this mean that I failed? IL state board said that 100% of BEC grades from the 1st wave were to be released. Help I am going crazy. I hate BEC. Failed in Jan with a 71!!!!" Sophia, In the past - the 7th would have been the cutoff with *some* exams from the 8th...not all of them. I think you're a Wave 2 candidate...they don't release them in batches...at least they haven't since I've been tracking this. I truly understand the frustration/anxiety of the whole thing...I sat through FOURTEEN score releases. You have to figure out something else to focus on...that's key. You can still check on your score once (or 20 times) a day...but sitting there hitting F5 will make you miserable.

I didn't get my result in first wave.what does it mean ? I am really scared now.Does it mean i didn't do well ?

12 years ago

if you didnt get your score in wave 1 its because- 1. you had a new simulation that they need to consider longer... 2. your score was close to a 75 (higher or lower- just as likely to be both)

jeff, so they don't release scores in batches? does that mean if I didn't receive CA audit i'm in wae 2 release?

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

The only time that they release scores in batches is in Wave 2 when Wave 2a occurs around 5 days after the big release...there's people who are "borderline" (72-77-ish) and are having their exams looked at again. Once the AICPA releases Wave 1 (usually)...they don't release any more scores until Wave 2. Last window ... only like 50% of REG was released in Wave 1...everyone else had to wait until Wave 2 and even then they were either last or close to it in Wave 2. So...based on past trends...no more scores until Wave 2.

Has anybody heard anything about REG? I hope we don't have the same issue as the one we had in the last window!

Got the score notification email today morning for Aud. 89!NH Board. But, NASBA still doesn't show the score. Congrats to all those who have cleared & those who are waiting 'your wait won't be long'. I know exactly how even a few hors wait could be.

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

I am anticipating NASBA to release AUD tonight. I'll say that at the expense of getting hate mail again when people stay up waiting for it. Here is why I think this: AUD was released Friday by the AICPA...they had all weekend and most of today to run their process and get it loaded before 7pm tonight. I bet we see AUD scores this evening (b/w 8:30 and 11:30 CST).

Jeff, Quick question. So I took Audit, April 3, 2009 in Illinois (have not received a score yet) and the site said that 51% of audit scores were released. It also says that scores are released in batches. Do you think they will release more Audit scores in Wave 1 (considering 51% of scores released seems on the low end)? I saw that you wrote that typically only one batch is released? I am just trying to figure out if I have a chance to receive my audit score sometime soon, instead of waiting until June. Please help, I'm losing my mind!!!!!!

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

It is possible that they will release more in batches, but I don't think it's likely based on what they did with REG (50% in wave 1) last window. "is it true what someone else wrote that if you have a new sims you get graded with wave 2?" This is based on an answer that the AICPA gave in my interview with them... https://www.another71.com/2009/04/cpa-exam-curved-myths-debunked-my-interview-with-the-aicpa.html "...For example, candidates need to know that those who are presented with simulations that have not been tested previously will receive their scores in the second wave, even if they test at the beginning of a testing window."

J 12 years ago

Jeff: I have a question about your response on wave1/wave2 "The only time that they release scores in batches is in Wave 2 when Wave 2a occurs around 5 days after the big release?there?s people who are ?borderline? (72-77-ish) and are having their exams looked at again." I took audit on 4/17. I called the VA board and they said they dont have my score and they only have 2,600 of 5,000 scores. Additionally, the Illinois site update says only 51% of scores were relased for AUD. Are you saying that 49% of the people that didnt receive there score because got between 72 to 77%? My first exam was FAR and it got a 75% and received my score in wave 1 way back in November. I really think I crushed AUD. I felt one of my simulations wasnt in the becker material at all (I have the 2008 books as this was my last exam). Can this low release percentage can be due to some new simulations that were thown in the mix that need additional review?

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

Jeff - another71.com 12 years ago

"Are you saying that 49% of the people that didnt receive there score because got between 72 to 77%?" no...I'm saying that there are people whose scores don't come out in Wave 2 and appear 3-5 days later...THEY are borderline. Your score coming out in Wave 1 or not coming out in Wave 1 has nothing to do with your score. It could be just bad luck...a new simulation...anything.

Jeff, What are the chances that NASBA will finish preparing AUD scores and fully process REG scores by close of business this evening and then upload the entire batch for tonight between say 9:00 and 12:00 central ?

The way to tell if a state releases via NASBA is to go to NASBA's website...go to CPA Exam...click the state...click "Scores". If there's a place for you to enter your section ID and date of birth - it's a NASBA state. If there isn't one...they release via their own site or through someone else. WA is *not* a NASBA state.

I'm waiting in TN for the AUD score to be release, and I just called NASBA's office in Nashville. The woman I spoke to claims they have not received any scores yet and to check back with them at the end of the week. I'm hoping she just gave me her 2 cent reply she gives everyone so as not to have to deal with them, and praying the AUD scores are released early this week.

Yep, I've called the Nashville office a few times over the last year as well. Not once have I ever gotten any thing other than we expect them near the "end of the month." They talk to us as if we are stuck in the 80s and do not have internet access, as though we are clueless. What rules would they be freaking violating if they simply told the truth, which is that the scores were received but are still being processed ? How hard would that be? Maybe Jeff's NASBA person can tell us why they keep giving us these standard, horse crap answers when we call.
