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

3,305    

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

  • Hi, I don’t normally publish comments on blogs, as I like to read only. But I find the article that you’ve written earlier has very insightful info, and I find it very informational. Anyway, I’m questioning whether or not you’re open for link change, as I hope that we can agree on a mutual hyperlink alternate agreement. Hope to hear a positive reply from you, and have an important day!

  • If you are being completely honest with yourself and believe you put in the required time then you need new review material. However, I have a feeling you are not being completely honest with yourself.

    I'm a “B” student, I consider myself an extremely below average standardized test taker, I have no masters and I have no work experience. All I have used is the Becker CPA review materials but I study my butt off. I passed audit with a high score and I'm taking BEC next week which I feel even more prepared than when I took audit. Granted I only have these two tests to show for but all I'm saying is that you need to give a 100% while you're studying and you should pass.

  • So i just recieved my scores for BEC, and REG. I failed both and i'm extremely dissapointed. I got a 67 on BEC and a 72 on Reg. I took a becker Cpa review course and felt like i really put in the time an effort.

    I really dont' know what to do….. I”m an “A” student master's in hand with honors……

    I feel so much like a dissapointment.

  • So if I am sceduled to take FAR on 7/9/09, I will for sure be in wave 2??? I am wondering if I should try and change my exam to the 6th or 7th of July so I have a chance to make wave 1.

  • I took AUD in wave 2 and haven’t received notice yet. Been also checking the NASBA website about 5 times a day this week. Keeping my fingers crossed…..

  • anybody receive scores back from wave 2 yet? i’m a ND candidate and am waiting on AUD and FAR results. i will be done if i pass both. crossing my fingers and checking my email every 5 minutes!

  • Hi Liz – I don’t think that we receive the report until September (atleast for Georgia). I could be wrong, but I remember reading that somewhere.

  • Is there anyone who haven’t received score report form 1st Wave? I took my exam early April and I was able to check my advisory score online, but I haven’t gotten my report yet.

  • I just found this website and I am glad that I am not the only checking the NASBA website like a maniac! I took the AUD exam on April 21 in GA and still no scores. Anybody know when we can expect them????

  • I took FAR on April 6th as well and have not received my score yet! It’s so frustrating because I check everyday and get disappointed!

  • I took AUD on 04/23 in Georgia and am waiting for my score too – anyone in Georgia receive theirs yet?

    I am getting neurotic waiting. Any thoughts?

  • I took AUD in early April in NYC and I registered in AK. I am still waiting for the result.

  • I just looked at the TX website under the text for REG and my tenative score is 74 and my last time was 72. Do they ever raise the grade to a 75 during validation?

  • Leanne from WI: I took BEC on 4/9 and have not received my score yet. I know two other people who took BEC and REG between 4/3 and 4/8 and they have not received their scores either. One of the girls emailed the WI exam coordinator today and received the following response:

    “Scores from the first set received are due to be released at the beginning of next week as long as all scores have been received.”

    So, hopefully early next week, we will have them….I understand your frustration!

  • I took FAR on 4/6 yet, until today I have not yet received my score on CPA CA webpage…. Anyone out there got info? Or just me ~~

  • Can anyone see Jan/Feb window scores on NASBA now? I know couple people from Ohio saying they can’t see their Jan/Feb. How about other states, can you guys still see your old scores on NASBA?

  • I just realized that I cannot account for what happened last week . . . delayed report . . . missed deadlines. . . what happened? Ans = Jeff’s + NASBA’s fault – I spent most of the time checking result and reading comments here. Still I did not get my FAR result – its the last part for me. Now playing catch-up at work today.

    My third testlet was very weird – strange questions that I dont know whether they are CPA questions or some Psychology questions that got mixed up with FAR (for real) and to add insult to injury my exam was interrupted briefly by network failure . . .

    Jeff, thanks for this website. Please post the guestimates for 2nd wave, it will probably keep me sane.

  • People in TX waiting for their Reg scores-

    If you look on the tsbpa website and click on REG, it will show you what your tentative score is. It is waiting to be validated but I called the board and they said that score usually never changes. It’s been a long wait but alas, it’s finally here!

    Good Luck!!

  • Hey Jeff – I just took BEC today – any idea (guesstimate) how long it will take to receive my score? Its hopefully my last section so was just wondering what you thought.

  • Thank you for this amazing website. It really got me through! I’m finished with CPA forever and luckily the first time through!

    REG-91
    FAR-88
    BEC-90
    AUD-85

    I just looked on the Texas board, it said I received an advisory score of 83 for REG on 5/26. Do advisory scores ever change?

    Has anyone ever seen an advisory score changed?

    Anonymous and JMC, from what I have heard, advisory score doesn’t change πŸ™‚

  • Aaron – Jeff said yesterday that wave 2 prediction will be available in a couple of day.

  • Thanks CA-FAR,

    Just one last question. How does CA-Board release their scores? I checked my account and it shows no credit. I took my FARE paper on April 11… Do they send the score report by USPS?

  • Where are the WAVE 2 release date predictions? πŸ™‚

    I just took AUD on May 26.

  • I just checked the Texas site and my REG score is not posted. I took it on 4/11. I wonder if they update during the day?

  • I just looked on the Texas board, it said I received an advisory score of 83 for REG on 5/26. Do advisory scores ever change?

  • On 5/26/2009 the Board received an advisory score of 84. The score is being validated.

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES

  • A-TX REG,

    You have to go to “Review your CPA Exam Testing Activities,” and click on “REG.” It should say that your score was received on the 26th, but is being validated.

  • I got an advisory score in TX?.. 79!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now just waiting for AUD!!

    How did you check your REG advisory score? On the website?

    When can those of us that just took the exam expect to see our scores on nasba.org? Thanks.

    I saw my score (REG) yesterday morning at nasba.org. I took it April 1st in Michigan.

  • I don’t even know what an Advisory Score is.

    “On 5/26/2009 the Board received an advisory score of 98. The score is being validated.”

    BUT I HOPE IT DOESN’T CHANGE!

  • I got an advisory score in TX….. 79!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now just waiting for AUD!!

  • I just received my CA- Audit score on 5/26…

    a freakken 74!@?#?!@#?!#@?!#?!#?!

    that hurts

  • Per the Ohio Audit discussions above, I noticed that my scores from the Jan/Feb testing window also disappeared this past weekend. Mine disappeared around 11pm on Friday night. I have not received my Audit score yet (sat for it on 5/2), and Jeff – I believe you that we will have to wait until wave 2, but I’m checking everyday just in case. I really don’t want to wait another month. πŸ™

    Also – for those of you who are compulsive checkers like me, you may want to check out Internet Owl. It’s a free download and will tell you when a website has changed and can even send you an e-mail when a change has occured. I have it checking my score every hour just in case.

    Has anyone got FARE scores from CA board? I am getting impatient here! I really don?t know where to look – this is my first ever CPA exam. please help!

    Scores for CA FAR that came out in Wave 1 are out, they came out last week. You were bumped to Wave 2. So was I. This is your first and my last . . . it sucks, eh? Oh well . . . just keep studying for your next one and circle back to FAR if you don’t pass. You can’t wait for your scores to be published before moving on to the next exam, you’ll end up having your 18-month window expire if you have to retake more than one or two . . . and you don’t want to do that if you can help it.

    So . . . I’m back to waiting for another 4 weeks. Ugh. Passed AUD, then REG, then BEC and then CA Ethics while I am waiting for FAR . . . . and we wait . . . .

  • I took REG 4/17 and passed it. But still waiting for audit 5/7..
    which is killing me..

  • Hi, Lisa!

    At last – someone else my age! I turned 50 this past January.

    Congrats on passing. I’m awaiting my REG score in Wave 2. It’s my last section too.

  • Well done Lisa, CPA…you’re awesome!

    Kush – as others have said…no worries…I have yet to hear of someone’s score appearing…disappearing…and then changing.

    Suneel – it is probably due to you getting a new simulation…which automatically puts you in Wave 2.

    OKpoke…I was just in Edmond this past weekend…random fact. Congrats on REG..bet it feels good getting that beast behind you.

    re: “test” sims…there are no “test” sims…there may be some “test” tabs on a sim…and one written communication is not graded…but both sims count.

  • Hi Jeff !!!

    I took my exams in Los Angeles and registered with the COLORADO board.

    I took my exams on April 1, 2 & 3. I have got the scores for

    (1) BEC
    (2) AUD
    (3) REG

    But the FAR which i took on April 2, is still not out…

    Any ideas on what it means???

  • wow!!
    lisa you seriously have not only successfully cleared the CPA test! but also succeeded in providing us a whole lotta inspiration to complete the course as Divya rightly said!
    seriously i mean… hats off to u!
    god bless. and a happy birthday in advance!

  • Lisa says:

    Praise the Lord!!! I passed REG (Michigan) and am done with the exam! My 50 birthday is in July and I have achieved my goal! I am so happy and feel so blessed. I wish I would have found this website before 2 months ago. It is awesome and a great support system for CPA candidates. Thanks Jeff. ???..and I didn?t even think about the exam score all weekend and enjoyed spending time with my 8 month old grandson.

    Lisa,
    My heartiest congratulations to you πŸ™‚ If you can complete CPA at this age, then that’s the best motivation factor any one of us can get. Your grandson would be proud of you once he would start understanding all the career stuff πŸ™‚

  • oh!
    so this means the score is still intact.
    by when could i expect the score mail from the board?
    any clue dave?

  • kush nj,

    No worries, sometimes scores disappear as the website is being updated. A few others have had the same issue.

  • Jeff, thank you so much for the site, I just discovered it last week, just in time to anxiously await my REG score today (1st test) and I passed! I am so excited and ready for more now. Thanks Jeff and keep up the good work!

  • hey Jeff this is really urgent
    i am regd with the Colorado board
    and on the 14th of may i saw my BEC test score online for which i had appeared on the 8th of may
    and now when i punch in the section id n birth date, my score doesn’t show!
    what does this mean?
    any idea? anyone?

  • Has anyone got FARE scores from CA board? I am getting impatient here! I really don’t know where to look – this is my first ever CPA exam. please help!

  • Does your score on MCs affect the way your Simulations are graded. I read these stories about people who only complete one sim and still score in the 90s.

  • Praise the Lord!!! I passed REG (Michigan) and am done with the exam! My 50 birthday is in July and I have achieved my goal! I am so happy and feel so blessed. I wish I would have found this website before 2 months ago. It is awesome and a great support system for CPA candidates. Thanks Jeff. ………..and I didn’t even think about the exam score all weekend and enjoyed spending time with my 8 month old grandson. πŸ™‚

  • “Trust me, I was surprised too! Maybe that simulation was a ?test? sim that got thrown out”

    I didn’t realize there were test simulations.

  • To those with online scoring….be very thankful that you have it!

    I’m in Alabama (no online posting) and waiting on BEC and REG scores.

    The State Board in AL says I am on the list for early release for both parts. Come on June 5th….at least I’ll know my destiny. Until then I’ll continue to have panic attacks thinking about it. I already have FAR and AUD but lose FAR if I didn’t pass both of these.

    “Wow! That is impressive.”

    Trust me, I was surprised too! Maybe that simulation was a “test” sim that got thrown out.

  • “I didn?t finish my 2nd simulation for FAR. I completely didn?t do the research tab, and I left 1/2 of another tab blank. I passed with a 93.”

    Wow! That is impressive.

  • “Anonymous says: at 5:09 pm

    Let me clarify my question: has anyone been working on a simulation and it timed out in the middle of it (so you didn?t finish), but you still received a passing score?”

    I didn’t finish my 2nd simulation for FAR. I completely didn’t do the research tab, and I left 1/2 of another tab blank. I passed with a 93.

  • Let me clarify my question: has anyone been working on a simulation and it timed out in the middle of it (so you didn’t finish), but you still received a passing score?

  • “AL FAR says: Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get scores if scores are mailed only? (no website to check).”

    Al, NASBA mailed my BEC score one business day after it was released (I checked the postmark date), and the letter took another two days to arrive.

    With FAR Wave 1 being released last Thursday, the mailed-out reports should be arriving between now and this Thursday. Of course, sometimes the USPS mis-routes the mail I’ve sent out myself. I could tell you horror stories about lost, damaged, and mis-directed mail.

    If you don’t have a letter in hand by Friday you might consider calling NASBA.

  • So I failed REG and my husband asks why I didn’t study. I guess people who don’t go through tax season don’t understand that it is already difficult enough to have to work 60+ hrs a week and try to find time to do anything else. Especially when you add on Board meetings for an organization I’m on the Board of and training for a half marathon. I didn’t have much of a choice but to take the exam at the end of tax season because my 6 month window was expiring so I crammed the weekend before and ended up failing. What else was I supposed to do? It’s hard working in public accounting and having to manage clients and staff all day with a significant workload during tax season so it’s unfair that someone that has never been through it would say something like that. I guess he just doesn’t get it and never will!

  • Pam, I hope we get them tomorrow! Usually, Texas is only 1-2 days after IL releases. :-/

  • I’ve called NASBA 3 separate times, and each person I spoke with gave me a different answer about when I can expect my test results… I took the BEC exam in Wisconsin on April 18th and one person from NASBA told me that Wisconsin waits for all test results, so we should be seeing something by the end of the month or early next month, another person from NASBA said that all of the test results are in for BEC, so I have to wait until the third week in June because I am in wave 2, and a third person from NASBA said that it could be anytime within the next month or two until I receive the results……does anyone have any valid insight for Wisco?? Seriously, does it really take 3 months to grade a 90 question multiple choice test??

  • I took AUD on April 6th and am still waiting for my score…impatiently. This is so frustrating!!! I can’t believe it takes this long.

  • Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get scores if scores are mailed only? (no website to check) Wondering how long I should be anxiously looking into the mailbox before resigning that my FAR score (taken 4/23) will not be there until mid-late June.

  • “anonymous – I was told the same thing for Wave 1 AUD in Ohio. The rep I spoke with told me he knew for a fact that they were receiving more scores THIS week?..Not questioning the information you have provided to us Jeff, that is just the info passed along to me by the NASBA rep. Also, I checked today, and my scores from past windows which had still been up previously have disappeared. Hopeful I may get something tonight!”

    I was wondering the same thing too. I wasn’t able to see my old scores last few times when they were updating the scores. Then got back when people start to post score release. I believe those were missing since last Saturday night. Hope this is a sign for the update. Jeff – I know you said 1st wave is done but do you know it is for all of the NASBA states? I am wondering if NASBA do the process per state basis. I’m thinking you, Jeff, are probably right but don’t want to give up my hope till next week.

  • Just talked to NASBA rep regarding OH-Aud. I am not sure about other states but he said 1st wave for AUD will be still going on till the first week of June and might want to check the score tomorrow and this Friday. He said next week is still in play. I am just keeping my fingers crossed.

    This person was trying to help you…but they’re wrong…100% sure Wave 1 is finished.

  • Thanks for letting me know Nan…I was experimenting with 10…it allows people to keep track of what page they were on instead of trying to find the last post they read in a sea of 100 posts.

    I’m just trying it…if too many people hate it, I’ll change it back.

  • Thanks for keeping us updated, Jeff. Anxiously awaiting Wave 2 dates. (As are my poor bitten fingernails….)

    BTW, I liked 100 posts per page better. It’s too difficult to follow a question-answer sequence with only 10 per page.

  • Jeff:

    Now that wave 1 is unfortunately over, what are the predictions for wave 2.
    I am expect FAR (last paper) in MA

  • Anyone received their REG score in WA? Does any other state use Castle Worldwide to release scores rather than NASBA website. Historically Castle’s releases fall real close with Jeff’s predictions but no REG yet.

  • Hey all Texas wave 1 people, I spoke with the board this afternoon and they said that they were still receiving REG scores from NASBA. The rep said that she did not know when the scores will be posted to the website.
    I’m guessing that thats her default answer…but I have a feeling that REG scores will be posted tonight or tomorrow.

  • IL – you won’t get your AUD score until the Wave 2 AUD release happens…when they release a section in Wave 2 – it’s everyone – Wave 1 and 2 people together.

    Even though there will be BEC people who only took BEC a few weeks earlier – they will get their score in Wave 2 before you do…that’s just how it works, unfortunately.

  • called texas state board, they have not released any reg scores for wave 1 or received any. Is it possible they could release them soon?

  • For those in states who haven’t discovered the uses of the internet, I received my FAR score today via USPS – 88! Sat for it 4/13.

  • Jeff,

    Quick question/request. If I took Audit on 4/3/09 in Illinois and have not received my score, I’m sure it will be released in Wave 2, as you have informed us. My question, can you or do you know if there is any differentiation between my score being released and say that of someone who truly took their exam in Wave 2?

    As in, will they release my score in June (earlier, or with like per say, BEC scores – sooner since, they have the score), or actually wait to release my score with the rest of the Audit scores in Wave 2, whenever that release is made? Thanks for all of your help, this site is a blessing.

  • Lisa – the appeal process isn’t worth it and it’s a waste of money. I looked into it…you would have your next score before they looked at your current score. According to the AICPA in my interview – zero grades changed due to appeal in 2008.

    After two 74s on REG – I got the Yaeger HomeStudy and finally passed it (92)…you might consider it.

    -Jeff

  • Jeff,

    I got a 74 three times in a row for Reg. Is there any point is going through a score appeal process. I’m really frustrated as this is my last part.

  • I took FARE on May 4. My score hasn’t been released yet which means taht i wasn’t in the first wave?

  • Hey Jeff,

    Do you happen to have any information on Wave 2 Score Releases? It seems like Wave 1 scores were released about 15-20 days following April, would it be safe to assume that we could expect Wave 2 scores mid June?

    Again, thanks so much for all of the information – this site is a great resource and is quite addicting πŸ˜‰

  • “So if I my score is not up, does that just mean my state board is lazy? Or that I am Wave 2? Thanks Jeff, I am new at this (first exam score)”

    I don’t know…if other people from your state have their scores…you’re Wave 2…still waiting to hear if Wave 1 is complete.

  • Yeah, I thought you lied before . . . I dont think 3 days is possible for REG. For BEC maybe, I studied over the weekend and I scored 72

  • Izabella,
    I am sorry to rain on you here but I don’t know if anyone can really answer that question on what to focus on while staying within the rules. I realize that there is so much info out there I would suggest reading the books. skim it and look for stuff you don’t know.

    Good luck I have heard it is possible and when you do it it will be one hell of a story to tell on here in 2 weeks!

    Take care!

  • Just an FYI… I’m in Mississippi, and received my Audit score last Thursday/Friday (not exactly sure which day) in the mail, via USPS. So at least some of the audit scores have been out for nearly 1 1/2 weeks, for us to get them through snail-mail.

    Hopefully there are still more to come, though. I would hate to wait for another month before I received a score!!!

    Good luck, guys!

  • ok so i guess i will just try to study what i can and see what happens. What do u recommend other than IT in BEC.. ( i find IT stuff easy)

  • Took FAR on 5/3 in NYC, score out already on NASBA, passed with a 82. Taking BEC this Thursday, studied for about 3 weeks, what sections should I focus on?

  • Still no audit in California…took the test on 4/6. Getting really frustrated now…

  • Called the VA Board and they gave me the good news on the telephone, I passed REG which means I am finished!

    Best of luck to those with sections remaining, hard work will put you over the top.

  • 61 in LA πŸ™ I am so bummed. I just wanted to pass ONE! Any one would do. I guess I still have a BEC score to look forward to. But 2 71’s and a 61 aren’t giving me much hope for that one either. Yaeger FAR will be here this afternoon. So I start over but I don’t quit!

  • I studied for 3 days and passed REG… if you have a business background it is possible. Study the IT section as that isnt intuitive.

  • Thank you for your reply.. the only problem is that my NTS is expiring. so i figured i might as well take it.. if i fail i could always retake the test.

  • Izabella, you should probably reschedule the exam. One day is not enough time for studying. It’s better to go in there prepared.

  • Jeff, any word on AUD score. Does the wave 1 is all done or we may have few scores coming out this week. Any guidence will be greatly appreciated.

  • did anyone take BEc and study only for one day and pass???

    help my test is tomorrow. havent even opened the book. Too many things going on πŸ™

  • I just got off the phone with some folks at the CPA exam services. I am waiting on FAR in WI I took it on 4/29. The first person I spoke with who was not responsible for my state who told me “to go enjoy a good dinner” I hope that means I can pay for the dinner with my CPA raise.

    Furthermore and more importantly he transferred me to the Wisconsin person who told me that WI scores are not being verified at this time because scores for WI are not released until all scores are in. And they should be available late this week or early next week. So for all my WI friends out there might as well kick back and have a cold one we have more time to wait for official word.

  • Use Wiley book, create your own flashcards, and use Yaeger Cram. That is how I passed 3 out 4 scections

  • anonymous who failed reg.

    My suggestion is use becker but make flash cards!! Make a flash card for every concept and review the flash cards every day. You may end up with a crap load of flash cards but then towards the end you can weed out the cards that you know well and focus on the concepts you need help on. In addition do every question on the becker cd at least twice. Keep at it, it will happen.

  • Failed REG…I used Becker this time. Any suggestions on what to use to review for next time?

  • Still waiting on REG in TX……… I took REG on 4/11. Any Texas scores out for REG?

  • Is there anyone who knows the rules for Wisconsin? I took BEC in April and I still haven?t received a score. I heard a rumor that Wisconsin doesn?t release any of the scores until they are all completed, but I would think that BEC would be posted by now?? Thanks!

  • Third time taking REG – 76. That was the last section! It has been a long road over the past three years. After passing BEC right out of college, I really struggled with FAR and REG, managed to have BEC expire and my AUD was set to expire next month. This really was my last shot. Congratulations to everyone who received good news today and for those of you who are still working at it, keep studying hard and you will get it.

  • 74 on REG…wooohooo!!!! Failed Again….and to top it off FAR expires next month during the closed window….YES!

  • 86 on REG! One more to go!
    Thanks Jeff for the site. I found it two weeks ago and it enabled me to get through waiting for my score.

  • I believe Jeff said if you are still waiting on FAR you are in second wave. It seems like a lot of people are waiting on FAR I took it 4/29 in WI and still waiting.

  • WOOOOHOOOO! Passed REG with an 88, 3 down last one FAR taking in July. Passing a section definitely motivates me to get this thing done. Congratulations to all who passed, and good luck to everyone waiting and to people who couldn’t make it this time believe in yourself and handle this beast and you all will be dont soon!

  • Donna – Still waiting on Texas REG over here too. I am thinking we will get them tomorrow! I hope!

  • Jeff —

    Any idea if FAR is out in Missouri? I took the test on 4/13 and still nothing?

    Thanks

  • *sigh of relief*

    MD REG is out. Somehow passed with an 84. I have now passed the CPA Exam; on to the take-home ethics course.

    Good luck to everyone else still awaiting scores!

  • Phew – just got REG. Third time turned out to be the charm – thank goodness as I dont think I could have continued if I had failed. I sit for BEC tomorrow and if I pass – I’m all done. If I don’t pass -I lose credit for Audit which has me really worried. I’m so ready for this whole thing to be over. 4 kids, FT public accounting and CPA studying has about killed me.

  • Hurray !!!!!!! My REG results are out !! I got 77 !!

    Eagerly awaiting my FAR results…. My last one !!

  • Just called the VA board (since you can’t check the website…) passed REG with a 77!! Three down- waiting on FAR for wave two. SO excited.

  • Received my PA Reg score last night, I didn’t complete any of Simulation 2 and scored a 92!!!

  • REG in GA is up. I missed earlier this year with a 74 and got the Yaeger cram to put me over the edge with an 80. For those who fell just short (70-74) I highly recommend the cram. I’ve got 3 down and 1 more to go…

  • I just (8.00 AM Eastern)received by score online for REG (Delaware) – 91
    To Erin: I thought I didn’t do well at all when I got out of the exam, but amazingly, I passed. So there is hope for everyone. I thought the SIMS I got for the REG exam were either new or untested as I thought I didn’t do well at all. So may be there is that “relative scoring” after all!!!!!!!!
    Good Luck to all who is waiting for their scores.
    I used only Wiley CPA books to study and passed REG, BEC and FAR comfortably with just that study material..

  • To all those who didn’t think they did well in REG and haven’t gotten their scores yet – MA scores came out last night- and I felt the same way as many of you and I got a 99! This was my last exam – Jeff, thanks so much for the site – you kept me as sane as possible during this process.

  • Donna, I think the Tx Bd website automatically does some sort of “maintenance” each morning from 3-5AM (on business days).

  • Just checked TX and no score yet…what in the world were they doing from 12 am to 5a,????????????????

  • Actually, I don’t think that even MENSA members would have an easy time with this exam. On this exam, general intelligence will not save you.

  • 85! So glad to be done.

    For those of you with sections remaining, this exam is nothing more than a test in perseverence. Unless youre in MENSA, you simply have to put in the time. There is no other way around it. That’s the bad news, but the good news is that anyone who has taken the 150 hours with 30 of those from accounting can pass this exam if they put in the time and effort.

    All the best!

  • Yay! 89 on REG! Now only if I could get my AUD score, and I will be done!

  • I took my REG exam on 04/03, but it’s not showing up on the TX site. Has anyone in TX received their score? Thanks, in advance.

  • Many thanks for this wonderful site Jeff ( sorry) i guess all these exam has drive me crazy.

  • Nasba Reg Is out for NH I pass Thank God i am done

    Aud 91
    FAR 82
    BEC 82
    Reg 74,93
    I was so angry when i fail REG but it taught me a valuable lesson of not taken any exam for granted. this time i studied REG completely and actually appreciated the course.
    many thank Jeff for this wonderful sight.
    Congrats to all who pass and those who did not pass this time dont give up. put in the time.

  • Waiting on REG, seems like NASBA posted all REG scores tonight (just not in OK). From what I gather, I would guess your AUD score is pushed into Wave 2. Jeff should be coming out with those expected release dates soon.

  • OKpoke
    what exam u r waiting for? i am waiting for AUD as well from OK board, took my exam 4/21.

  • Tx has blocked access to candidate log in till 5:00 am so I’m hoping it means they are updating the scores!!!

  • I hitting the refresh button like crazy as well, but to no avail, it appears Oklahoma took the day off?

  • So, for all of you late night birds up and for some ungodly reason (like me) hitting the refresh button like nobody’s business, I just checked and NASBA released PA REG tonight. Got my score and just barely passed. Thank god (it only took 3 tries). All I have left is audit on Wednesday. I hope you all luck out just as well.

  • Jeff,

    So if I my score is not up, does that just mean my state board is lazy? Or that I am Wave 2? Thanks Jeff, I am new at this (first exam score)

  • “Jeff, is it possible that REG would be up in some states and not others?”

    If you’re a NASBA-releasing state – no…they release all at once.

    If you’re an independent state, yes…still could be some straggler states.

  • WOOHOO! Passed REG with a 78, now I need my papers congratulating me on passing all 4 parts to roll in.

  • Still no REG in Oklahoma, I’ve never been more nervous to go to a website before. I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow…

  • Got my Colorado score for Regulation: 88! BEC on Wednesday and I am (hopefully) done!

  • 85 REG in NJ!!!! One more to go(Fare)
    Congrats to all who achieved success and for those who fell short keep at it!

  • Anyone received NASBA-AUD score today? I saw someone contacted NASBA-Ohio re: AUD score release. I wonder when it would be. This wait is killing.

  • 75 Passed I don’t believe it.. Keep at it everyone. FAR on Saturday hope I can get lucky again

  • I got my REG score in NY.

    I FAILED!

    I feel terrible. I should be better by the end of the week.

  • OMG MA REG is up, and pass. i thought i failed because i didn’t finish the second simulation….SWEEET. 2 down and 2 to go. i’ taking BEC on 5/31, wish me luck. Congrats to all that pass, and keep trying to those who didn’t make it this time.

  • Best feeling in the world to finally be done! Thanks Jeff and everyone else that posts here… just hang in there for those of you who are still trecking through. the end is well worth it πŸ™‚

  • OH MY GOD. I got REG in the middle of the day on a holiday. Passed!! I’m done. Thank you God. Thank you Jeff for the site. It has helped ease a lot of the pain of taking the CPA exam.

  • Anonymous’s comments about communications kind scares me. I was able to pass my FAR with 84 without using research tab to do my communications. Then I heard it from a Becker classmate about this trick – find the answer in research tab. So on my AUD test, I did use this trick to do one of my communication – copied a lot from codes. I wouldn’t find any answer for the 2nd communication and did waste some time. Though I am still waiting for AUD score now. Hope I will pass. If it’s true that AICPA will grade communication lower if you are not using your own words, I better be careful on my next REG test. Do anybody have any thoughts?

  • From a previous post:

    “Just to all of those still waiting on Audit score this wave. I spoke with the NASBA rep from Ohio, who has provided me with very reliable information previously, and he said that they are supposed to receive some more Audit scores next week from the AICPA. He said if you aren?t in that group next week, then you are definitely waiting until the 2nd wave.”

    Hopefully you are right! Jeff, any chance you might be able to look into this?

  • RP- at least in CA candidates are provided a basic analysis of their performance. Besides your overall score you are provided with a score covering general topics that were covered in the test. Plus your performance is judged in terms relative to the average passing candidate. You are either “weaker” “comparable” or “stronger.”

    So depending on your approach to the test you may have a rough idea of how your score was impacted by what did.

  • how would you know whether they graded it weaker or stronger… i thought if you pass, they don’t tell you your performance. They only tell you how you perform in each section when you fail.

  • Has anyone else experienced you not being able to use the research part to help gather information to use on the communications tab?

    In my experience, when i took the AUD, i tried the simple way by gathering information from the research tab and basically copying line by line except for some words that i changed to appear as if it was my own. I am pretty sure that i nailed the communication part… Unfortunately though, they didn’t like that… I still passed with a grade of 82, because i was stronger with my MC and Simulations… i think i lost maybe 10 points because of the communication. They have graded my communication weaker while stronger for the other 2 categories..

    Then when i took the FAR, i tried to answer the communication based on my knowledge, on my own, without even bothering looking at the research tab and they have graded my communication stronger and passed with a grade of 89.

    That’s my two cents worth…..

  • Hey-

    I can’t believe we are still waiting for REG scores… I’m going on vacation tomorrow and I wanted to leave having passed.

    As for BEC, its not adaptive. I repeat not adaptive. The other three are (not including the Simulations). Good luck to everyone and I’m hoping we find out tonight but I know we won’t.

  • Is there anyone who knows the rules for Wisconsin? I took BEC in April and I still haven’t received a score. I heard a rumor that Wisconsin doesn’t release any of the scores until they are all completed, but I would think that BEC would be posted by now?? Thanks!

  • Has anyone else experienced you not being able to use the research part to help gather information to use on the communications tab?

  • Is BEC adaptive.My 2nd testlet was easier,but the 3rd one had lots of calculations involved.

    When will wave 2 come out for BEC?

    Thanks Jeff!

  • Are the simulations for AUD easier than REG and FAR? That is what it seems at first glance of the Becker AUD simulations.

  • The credit is based on the date taken. If you pass REG on May 30, you will retain your credit for BEC. When you pass a section the clock begins to run on the date (18 mos) taken.

  • hey jeff – I have a little dilema…I sat for 3 out 4 and passed. I have one more (REG) on May 30. I lose my credit for BEC on May 31. Will I lose my credit for BEC even if i pass REG..Also, I haven’t takken the ethics exam – will that affect my credit?

  • Ernie-CA,

    I took AUD on 4/6, the same day as my husband. (AUD is the last for both of us) He got the score on 5/19 and I am STILL waiting. Probably I had new sim so got pushed to Wave 2. Good luck to both of us! I have been very cranky due to the wait…

  • That does not necessarily have anything to do with your score. It certainly does not mean that you failed.

  • In regards to if you have time to take reg on the 30th-

    I would say to try to take reg on the 30th then if you dont pass you can always retake it. Just use about half that time to finish up chapters 6 and 7. Then I would review everything by going over the book doing a practice test, and the supplemental questions (as much as you can). If there is anything you know you have down you can skip over it. Remember they say that the tax part covers two thirds of the exam. Hope that helps

  • I wonder if there is someone who took in the first wave and didn’t get the score but passed REG, FAR or AUD later after the second wave. I took AUD on April 23rd and didnt get the score for some reasons yet. Please somebody tells me that it is not a bad sign.

  • Just to all of those still waiting on Audit score this wave. I spoke with the NASBA rep from Ohio, who has provided me with very reliable information previously, and he said that they are supposed to receive some more Audit scores next week from the AICPA. He said if you aren’t in that group next week, then you are definitely waiting until the 2nd wave.

  • Is it me or dooes it seem a lower % of grades were released in this wave as compared to other ones. It seems lower than usual.

  • Took AUD 4/4 in NJ, and haven’t got my score. Don’t know why. The Sim didn’t seem weird or anything. Maybe it was just a new non-weird sim. Oh, well. I’m taking FAR on Tuesday, and I guess I’ll be getting the two scores at the same time.

  • Anonymous says:

    I have still not received AUD scores in TX? Has anyone?

    If you have not receive your score by now, I am pretty sure Jeff has said AUD is done for wave 1. It appears that you are an unlucky wave 2 like myself. Took exam on 4/21 and will wait have to wait until wave 2 which more than likely will not be until sometime after Jun 15.

    Good luck anyway.

  • For those of you who took REG using Becker, I’m scheduled to take REG at noon on Sat., May 30. I’ve finished the lectures, homework, and progress tests for Ch. 1- 4, taxes. Just finished the Ch. 5 lecture. So, I have the Ch. 5 homework and everything for Ch. 6 & 7 left to study. Haven’t done any supplemental Qs. Do you think I have enough time or should I reschedule? I have about 40 hours of reasonable study time available from now until Saturday. Thanks for your input!

  • this is my last post untill tuesday evening. Finally, I’ve decided I will not check my reg score on nasba until tuesday evening. this is so frustrating………..

  • i have been waiting for REG forever now (NY) i have been obsessing over this website, i actually check the website before i even think of checking my grade… i check this website maybe 5 times a day get updated on all the posts.. and then check my grade on Nasba once a day late at night…. the process is ridiculous i cant deal with this much longer! i took REG 4/6 and FARE 5/18… im obviously dying for REG.. what is with this grading system, i cant deal with it anymore!!!!@!

  • PA Reg – totally possible to cram and pass bec. I only had two weeks total to get through all the material and still passed. I would advise using the week to review and definitely do the homework.

    now back to my regularly scheduled whine…

    where is reg!!?!?

  • Any input from people who crammed for BEC. I take BEC the 5/31..one week from today. I have gotten through lectures but not all the homeworks. I have taken the week of study, is it possible for me to pass this exam within a week of cramming?

  • hi all, wiating for REG blahhh! –quick BEC question—will they give you factor tables related to the time value of money calcualtions? or do we have to calculate the factors on our own?

  • “Anyone in MD receive REG yet? I don?t understand why CA always releases first. MD is not a nasba state so why can?t they release the same time??..not fair!”

    Not Yet! …. Tell me about it.

  • I passed REG!!!! I’m so excited, that was my last one, and I finished the Ethics exam yesterday, so I’m done!! What do I do now??

  • “The ?non-nasba? states receive grades from nasba??
    No – they receive them from the AICPA…everyone gets them from the AICPA…NASBA just represents many state boards.”

    “But its been 4 days since i got my AUD & BEC, i have not got FAR & REG?

    Any ideas?? Does that mean it would come up in the second wave?? Could u tell me tentative week they would release the second wave??FAR is probably Wave 2 – REG isn’t out yet for NASBA.

    Is there any reason for me to be worried??? none at all

    “What about AUD people, Jeff? Wave 2 at this point??”

    yes – it looks like it

    “Jeff, do you think more AUD scores will be posted since they have only released 60 something percent?”

    I doubt it at this point

    “Passed AUD (TN)!!! Thanks Jeff for the site! One down, three to go!”

    Nicely done!

    “Jeff, this site has kept me sane?at least as sane as you can be while checking your scores 10 to 15 times per day”

    I appreciate hearing that. Thank you!

    “Should I appeal 74?”

    nope – don’t even consider it…get a cram and get back in there and take it…I had 2 74’s back to back…I looked into it – trust me

    “IF REG is released by AICPA tonight, isn?t it true that NASBA won?t start its preliminary processing until Tuesday, since they are closed on Monday for Memorial. This would mean that Tuesday night or Wednesday night would be our best bet.

    I realize their IT can upload on weekends, but the preliminary steps would require more staff huh?”

    correct – I don’t think we’ll see REG scores via NASBA until Tues or Wed…CA or IL releasing them has NOTHING to do with NASBA.

    “I think appeal it is waste of money”

    The AICPA stated in their interview with me that they had changed zero grades due to an appeal in 2008.

    “If NASBA really has REG scores, when can we expect to see them posted on the NASBA website?” Tuesday evening at the earliest

    “Honestly, you are doing a great job in helping out the CPA fraternity. It?s not a simple task to balance your job, family, friends and another71.com. Still, you manage to provide us the updates here and there to keep us in the loop.”

    thank you! I can’t always respond when people say nice things…it balances out the hate mail…haha…I can’t always respond and say “thank you” but I do appreciate it

    “I wonder if ppl who didn?t get the score in the 1st wave still have a chance to get higher than 75% after the second wave. Please let me know if there is anyone who had this experience. I don?t wanna lose my hope.”

    not getting your score in Wave 1 has nothing to do with your score…you may have gotten a new sim which would put you in Wave 2!

    “I?m taking AUD in a couple days (May 26). Any predictions for when the score would be released. Sorry for jumping ahead of REG folks still waiting!”

    I’ll close down this post in a few days and put up a Wave 2 post…I’ll write them soon

    “Is an ethics exam required in all states? Louisiana?”

    Call you state BOA and ask themor check their website…the only way to know for sure.

    “I took audit today. It was my last section. I finished it in 2.5 hours. Is that a bad sign?”

    People finish AUD half an hour to an hour early…2 hours is really early, but maybe you just knew your stuff

    “Jeff since CA received their REG scores, what are your thoughts on NASBA states release?!?!”

    Tuesday – they’re not related in any way other than they got their scores at the same time.

    “does NASBA release scores on Saturday/Sunday?”
    yes

    “Jeff, any thoughts on receiving NASBA Reg scores tonight? If not tonight, what do you think about a Sunday release? Sorry to bug you on the weekend!”

    no problem at all…I do think it’s Tuesday though

    “Sorry, I may be a little clueless on this but can you please explain the distinction between NASBA and non-NASBA state?”

    if you get your cpa exam core via NASBA.org – you’re a NASBA state. If your state BOA uploads the scores independently on their own site or mails them – you’re not a “NASBA state”.

    “Jeff from all of us want to tell you thank you for this very helpful and supporting website”

    thank you! Please let me know if you see ways to improve it

    “Jeff from all of us want to tell you thank you for this very helpful and supporting website”

    taking it in early April or late April means nothing as far as Wave 1 or 2 goes…you’re just one of the unlucky Wave 2 people

  • Does anyone here remember scores ever coming from NASBA over weekends? Please NASBA…. have pity!

  • Any rumors about the release dates for Wave 2? I’m taking my last part on May 30th and was wondering when I could expect to have my results.

  • I sat for AUD on april 1, and am still waiting for the score which is my last the section. It was my third time to take the exam. 73, 69. I don’t even know if I want to see the score. Every day, when I check the score online, I am relieved becuase there is no news

  • Prash: Thanks for your positive reply..Still i am checking whether my answers are right or wrong..i guess both of my simulation is right except very few mistakes ..
    When i took FAR last time i did really well in MCQ but not in simulation and left one communication.so,in my report it says i m stronger in mcq (on the whole) weaker in simulation and communication.That time i got only 69.
    This time i know for sure both my simulation is almost correct .I am still worried about my communication part even though i didn?t leave it blank.
    Mcq was really hard..i didn?t come across those topics in BECKER.

  • Jeff,

    Any idea why those of us who took AUD in early April are being pushed back to wave 2? I sat for that exam on 4/3 in California and was just wondering how much longer I should expect the torture to continue.

    Thanks.

  • I took FAR last week and it was very tough .My mcq was ok and i did both the simulation and i know most it was right but i didn’t do well in communication part(i didn’t leave it blank). Is it possible for me to pass?

  • Good day in IL. Just got home from FAR (last one) to see my REG score. Goodbye library, hello summer!

  • So does the fact that 100% of scores are in mean that everyone that took REG from April 1 to May 7 will receive their score? Im not sure, but if that is the case, Ill gladly trade a week or so more for a 100% chance rather than a 75ish% chance.

    Thanks!

  • Jeff from all of us want to tell you thank you for this very helpful and supporting website

  • 100% of REG scores released this morning in IL. Good Luck!

    No more AUD or FAR scores released. Appears we will be waiting until Wave 2.

  • From IL board of examiners

    “Electronic scores received at the Board of Examiners Released on line

    BEC — 100% of total testing Thursday, May 14, 2009
    AUD ? 63% of total testing (two releases to date) Tuesday, May 19, 2009
    FAR ? 78% of total testing Tuesday, May 19, 2009
    REG ? 100% of total testing Saturday, May 23, 2009”

    Does this mean there is hope for us NASBA states to get ours this weekend?

  • i decided to hang out with friends last night…so i just woke up and checked my score

    AND I PASSED!!!!!! it’s my last one! πŸ˜€

    AUD 64,74,68*,81
    FAR 68,59,76
    BEC 80, 75
    REG 77,77

    the AUD caused me to retake BEC n’ REG. but i’m glad that it’s OVER after all these years!!!!

    thanks jeff for this blog. and thanks for everyone’s support in the past week on this post as we went thru the waiting period…
    and thanks for everyone’s word of encouragement in the past =D

  • IL Reg out. I passed.

    To all who passed-Congratulations. To those who failed on this window-NEVER QUIT.

  • Hi everybody. REG scores out in ca finally. I got an 80!!! Just need to get my bec score and I’m done!!! Shout out to all y’all who have been waiting for a long time…..

  • “I took REG and nailed the writing on the first sim, but bombed all the other tabs. I didn?t have time for the second sim. I was sure I was going to fail but got a 77?so there?s hope if you don?t do well on the sims.”

    I did the exact same thing on my reg test, thought for sure I failed this one, but passed! That was a HARD test

  • I passed! I PASSED!!! One down three to go… It’s a great motivation and I can move on to another section!! YAY!

  • Anyone in MD receive REG yet? I don’t understand why CA always releases first. MD is not a nasba state so why can’t they release the same time……..not fair!

  • Sorry, I may be a little clueless on this but can you please explain the distinction between NASBA and non-NASBA state? Still waiting on NY REG from beginning of April. Anyone else hear of NY scores?

  • Jeff, any thoughts on receiving NASBA Reg scores tonight? If not tonight, what do you think about a Sunday release? Sorry to bug you on the weekend!

  • My old scores disappeared this morning. I am waiting for Reg. Took exam on 5/3. Are they going to be released during the day or by tonight. this is for nasba state

  • Texas doesn’t update over the weekends, but maybe we can hope for Monday? There’s a time stamp at the bottom of the score page when they do update it (usually for 3:16 AM)

  • No clue….when I was taking practice tests before the exam I thought I was acing them, but kept scoring in the 50s. So when I took the exam and thought I did well, I didn’t trust that feeling at all.

    I will say that the exam questions seemed easier than the Wiley practice questions.

  • I took REG and nailed the writing on the first sim, but bombed all the other tabs. I didn’t have time for the second sim. I was sure I was going to fail but got a 77…so there’s hope if you don’t do well on the sims.

  • I took REG for the first time yesterday. I coasted through the multiple choice and think I did pretty well on the first simulation. The second simulation was a different story. I know I nailed one of the tabs but the rest I’m pretty sure I bombed. I hope that one simulation doesn’t kill my score.

    Well now its time to begin the wait we all enjoy so much. Good luck to all.

  • Does Texas release scores over the weekend? I’m anxiously awaiting REG-first time taker….

  • Thanks Jeff for keeping us updated as soon as you are! It has been very helpful! I’m in California. I got my Regulations score and I passed! Thank God!

    For those of you still waiting, the scores do come…

  • Jeff since CA received their REG scores, what are your thoughts on NASBA states release?!?!

  • CA REG came out..Top portion indicates “no credit” but the bottom status information shows a score of 86!

    Have a great weekend!

  • Dang, 7:03AM, and nothing on REG. Going back to bed. Someone please post if you’re from a non-NASBA state and your score posts.

  • I finished audit early as well, and got an 81. They definitely give too much time for AUD, I haven’t heard of anyone who didn’t finish early. They could give some of that extra time to FAR and REG!

  • I also finished Audit in 2.5 hours last window. Got an 83. In my opinion they give too much time for that section and not enough for REG.

  • took FAR in CA on 4/23…still haven’t received my score. Does that mean I’m in wave 2 forsure? when does wave 2 come out?

  • I took audit today. It was my last section. I finished it in 2.5 hours. Is that a bad sign?

    i finished audit in 4 hrs.
    i guess 2.5 hrs is a tad too quick for audit..
    how did u manage with the sims?
    and didn’t you review your testlets?
    if considering all of the above yet you finished AUD in 2.5
    then you’re a genius!

  • I took audit today. It was my last section. I finished it in 2.5 hours. Is that a bad sign?

  • Ann, not sure about CA but as far as IL (which is the same in terms of score release), I remember I read somewhere at the state board website that they do update the scores online even on weekends. In fact, I received my FAR score on Sunday. And now waiting for my REG score…well, it’s such a shame that the whole score release process is not standardized, after all it’s a UNIFORM exam, that’s why so many people are stressing here because no one knows when exactly the scores will be released. On the other hand, NASBA can choose to wait until the close of the window to release 100% of each section’s scores but then it would be extremely inefficient. So we’ll see how NASBA will decide to better streamline the whole process (if they ever will). But then, again, I would be hard-pressed to expect a great combination of efficiencies and standardization from non-profits…

  • Does anyone from CA expect to see their reg scores tonight?I am really new to this whole system and the way scores are released and will really appreciate if someone can help.

    Basically since it is after regular working hrs, I was wondering if the NASBA system needs some person to be present to update their system, and if CA board needs someone as well to update their system.
    Otherwise how can it be release over the weekend?

    Or is the whole thing in NASBA and CA Board an automatic process, without any manual intervention??

    Someone pleaaaaaaaaaase reply if you know. Just a few words.
    Thanks

  • Waiting on Reg in NJ…
    My grades from 1Q which were earlier today are not up anymore does that mean anything for them possibly releasing scores?

  • I took the AUD exam last month 4/22 in Worcester, Massachusetts. My score was initially posted to NASBA’s website around 11pm on 5/19 and then it disappeared the next day. It just reappeared this morning.

  • Ernie in CA, I took AUD on 4/17/09 in VA. I called VA board everyday this week but now I will just wait until June. I felt I could pass but without knowing it I am still in doubt. One of my friend felt good after the exam but failed. I hope I will be luckier.

  • ny-reg- no scores, 1st section, grueling wait….
    i’m guessing tuesday at best? we have no shot for tonight via NASBA, correct?

  • That would be awesome if CA receives their scores over the weekend bc then the NASBA states may receive their scores Tuesday night instead of Wed!

  • OK – I guess I am going to have to wait until wave 2 – I took AUD on April 7th in Illinois. If I didn’t pass, I honestly wish they would just let me know… πŸ™

  • I am sorry..I meant anyone from CA…who has appeared in apr 2009…are scores released yet..

  • Now I am almost certain my AUD score will be in wave 2. I think my 2nd sim is a new release because it’s an update added to Becker review material. I will be patient now.

  • I’m not sure. Michelle, why don’t you give them a call and let us know (916)561-1705. Thanks!

  • CA-REG: so people at the CA board will work over the weekend to release the score??

  • I just contacted the CA Board of Accountancy (they’re open today!), the lady I talked to told me that if AICPA release the score to them today, there’s a possibility that we will receive it over the weekend as an advisory score. So there’s hope for CA candidates!!

  • Just got an e-mail…

    REG released by AICPA today after NASBA offices were closed. NASBA people could see them by Tuesday night, but Wednesday evening is a more realistic scenario due to the holiday.

    CA/IL/other independent boards…it just depends on each board…some could release this weekend.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

  • Got an e-mail from NASBA saying I’m in Wave 2 for AUD. πŸ™
    Here’s hoping I’m not in Wave 2 for REG too.

  • how do I find out if I got bumped to wave 2? because I took FAR in April and no score yet.

  • Sweet. Mid June is good. After that……1 more to pass: The dreaded REG. Already taken it twice….68, 73. I’m going to buy the Becker materials for it this time around….so I plan on being a CPA in mid July after I take REG July 1. Can’t wait for this to be over.

  • Aaron(FAR) Louisiana
    I?m taking AUD in a couple days (May 26). Any predictions for when the score would be released. Sorry for jumping ahead of REG folks still waiting!

    hey first of all good luck with your test! i jus appeared for AUD on the 20th. it was a very pleasant paper and i finished the test with ample time to review in 4 hours.
    as regards the results, again first of all you must not think bout the results now, just go give your best and secondly the results would be out by mid-june.
    good luck Aaron

  • Jeff,

    I’m taking AUD in a couple days (May 26). Any predictions for when the score would be released. Sorry for jumping ahead of REG folks still waiting!

  • Maybe the REG scores were just that bad and they are having trouble deciding what kind of curve to add to all the grades…

  • “I?m pretty irritated my very last score (FAR-NY) got bumped to Wave 2. Though a big part of it is the wait – and that my work review will pass by the time Wave 2 comes and it would have been good to say I passed – its also the fact that I scheduled it early just to be part of Wave 1. If I was going to have to wait until June anyway I would have taken it this upcoming week and had an extra month to study. God I hope I?m done with this mess.”

    I’m with you on that. I was just laid off and it would help LOTS to get a job if I knew if I passed REG. I will be ticked off if I get bumped to wave 2, because I took it in April (tax test on tax day) to get my score earlier. With all my free time not working now, I could have studied lots more.

  • I’m pretty irritated my very last score (FAR-NY) got bumped to Wave 2.

  • “Just to let everyone know, I e-mailed the NV board which usually releases scores the same time as CA. They said they are expecting to get REG scores on Tuesday.”

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • “Does anyone know for CA- if you didn?t pass, would it show your score AND ?no credit? or just ?no credit? on the website? I took FAR beginning of April and have been going nuts waiting for it and am starting to freak out now.”

    I think the Credit Status will not change until the ‘View Score Report’ button is available in the Action column in the Application Status section below. They are ‘advisory’ scores until they are finalized. If you didn’t pass, it doesn’t change the Credit Status Information section.

  • make sure you guys have low expectations cause expectations is directly proportionate to disappointment
    proven by the following formula-

    Disappointment = Expectation divided by Reality

  • Just to let everyone know, I e-mailed the NV board which usually releases scores the same time as CA. They said they are expecting to get REG scores on Tuesday.

  • I just called VA BOA about the REG Scores and they have not received them yet, in addition they told that they do not work on extended the week-end

  • Just FYI guys. Facebook has a page for “Becker is ruining my life” it isn’t as good as Jeff’s site, but if you are looking for more CPA wannabe’s it is a good place to look.

  • Jeff i feel like you are our big brother watching over us….

    thank you so much for everything you do!!!

  • Well, I just took and passed the Ethics exam….guess I’m back to checking for my score every 30 minutes.

  • NASBA just e-mailed me and said I am in wave 2 for Audit (im in New Mexico) even though I took my exam 5/4. Illinios says the cut-off isn’t until 5/8 so are they feeding me the corporate line? I mean I realize I am not getting my score anytime soon but it sounds they are trying to make me go away.

  • Guys this is directly from the VT, NE, and PA director as of 12 pm this afternoon.

    Your score has not come in yet from the AICPA, sorry.

    I think its going to be a very long weekend for those states. Lets start drinking and blackout to the fact that we in took this exam, and to the fact that AICPA has no consideration for our well earned time off. Hope you all have a great weekend.

  • Does anyone know if Texas scores come on multiple days, or if we don’t have FAR by now we have to wait until wave 2?

  • Joe- we are all tired of waiting. It may be a waste of time to refresh constantly knowing good and well that it isn’t going to change any time soon, but if we quit in the middle then we really have wasted even more.

    Jeff- Thanks. Might have gotten carried away there.

  • Dunno what you guys think about this idea, but I’ve been filling my day with completing the Ethics course instead of checking for my REG score. Hopefully, this way, I’ll receive my REG score and be done with the whole thing!! Just a thought for those of you who need to get something accomplished.

  • Angela,

    Thank you for the kinds words earlier.

    Also – please be prudent with whom you add to facebook…my advice is to not do it at all if you don’t know them…too many bad stories out there…my $.02

  • i still haven’t received my REG Score yet (as of 11:31am pacific time)

    *argh*

  • Angela

    Thank you for saying that. I needed someone to tell me not to give it up. Since i didnt get the score, i guess that i have lost my mind. I am sick of waiting for the socre all the time!!

  • Joe, not in the first wave does not indicate your score. It could be that there was a new sim that needed to be evaluated or some other circumstance. But many have passed in the 90’s and gotten pushed to the 2nd wave. PLEASE do not give up hope.

  • I wonder if ppl who didn’t get the score in the 1st wave still have a chance to get higher than 75% after the second wave. Please let me know if there is anyone who had this experience. I don’t wanna lose my hope.

  • NY – I just got the same email from NASBA. I can’t believe I wasted all that time this week checking my score & stressing.

  • Well if at all possible, take a little time and run off to the beach. Maybe if you give yourself a little me time as a reward, the rest of the study time will be even more productive.

    I sit for AUD on Friday

  • Angela thanks for the PA insight info. I was hoping they would be here today as I take Auditing on Wednesday (my last part) and was hoping to get REG back as a motivational tool. Instead i suppose I’ll just have to suffer through another Memorial Day of studying instead of a beach weekend.

  • I will have a much better weekend knowing that SOMEONE SOMEWHERE has at least received a REG score
    ……..and that the whole batch wasn’t lost and we would have all passed but now we have to all re-take and………….
    …sorry…my other personality took over my keyboard for a moment. I am sure all is fine and someone soon will GET A FREAKING SCORE FOR GOD’S SAKE!!!

    πŸ™‚

  • Yeah, if the REG scores are indeed trickling in as we speak, I look forward to the posts from Calif and Illinois candidates. Us NASBA people will just have to live vicariously through you guys for a few more days. At least we can cheer for you and know in our minds that this thing is at least moving.

  • PA – if she is correct, they come in but our status will not change until much later in the night or early AM. If scores are coming in, non NASBA states may see them tonight or in the morning but we won’t until Monday or Tuesday probably at best.

  • Jeff,
    You’re a butt munch.
    just kidding……….silly is all I have left as we wait this stpid reg thing out.

  • Does anyone know for CA- if you didn’t pass, would it show your score AND ‘no credit’ or just ‘no credit’ on the website? I took FAR beginning of April and have been going nuts waiting for it and am starting to freak out now.

  • I emailed PA NASBA yesterday and got a reply back today regarding the REG exam. Here is what she said:

    “The first wave of scores are coming in now and the second wave will be here around the middle of June. ”

    Not really sure what “now” means as i still have an error message when I look up the score on NASBA. Hope I’m not in the second wave ;(

  • just called IL boe and they said they will be closed on monday. guess if they arent up by the end of today it will be a long wait until tuesday. my advice is to just relax and enjoy the 3 day weekend.

  • hey jeff
    look im sorry if i upset anyone here for complaining
    but i dint mean to oblige you in any way
    i was jus expectin your mail
    already failed in BEC… plus REG comes up in a week

    so really nerve wrecked
    so i apologize to whoever got offended with me bein disapp
    and i know im not a paid subscriber or somethin… but i never claimed any rights to a reply or somethin… i jus put up what i was thinkin…
    anyways… jeff if u want i will mail u again the difficulty i have or if you could trace my mail kindly respond to it asap..
    thank you all
    and good luck to all cpa students…
    back in India im doin CA… counterpart of CPA
    and we have exams only twice a year that is in may and nov.
    and we have established a phrase for the fraternity of CA students

    “Where there’s a will, there’s a way,
    If you don’t pass in November,
    There’s always May”

    so keep it going peeps… πŸ˜‰

  • Can somebody please tell me if they have received a single AUD score in MA? Saw someone claiming to be from MA and turned out to be from Maine….

  • Soooo, I called NASBA, seems they are already gone for the long weekend because the office is closed. Way to make an extra effort to get our scores out πŸ™‚

  • Soooo, I called NASBA, seems they are already gone for the long weekend because the office is closed. Way to make an extra effort to get our scores our πŸ™‚

  • I am waiting on my FAR results in TN and it is my last section. If I don’t pass by July 31st, I lose AUD. Should I start studying for FAR again in case I don’t pass? How has everyone handled that situation?

  • Someone was asking this earlier – I ran out of time on the second simulation and the test “timed out”. I passed, so obviously your answers up to that point are saved. Also, since I ran out of time, I did not get to the written communication on the second simulation and still passed so it must be true they only grade one of them. Luckily, the one I did. I will say I think I nailed the first simulation and got most of the tabs right on the second one, except of course my memo I didn’t get to.

  • Jeff,

    Honestly, you are doing a great job in helping out the CPA fraternity. It?s not a simple task to balance your job, family, friends and another71.com. Still, you manage to provide us the updates here and there to keep us in the loop.

    For the past week, I was fretting on FAR score. This resulted in bad consequences on my study for BEC which is scheduled next week. To add on, I have not still received my FAR score in Wave 1 but still I am somehow at ease now. As soon as I read your update that 78% of the FAR scores have been released, I immediately knew I am in Wave 2. Magically, a big burden has been lifted off my mind :).

    I don?t know what are going to be my results, but for now fretting is at peace. Obviously, when I know that I have to wait until Wave 2, so better to wait happily, isn?t it !

    Thanks to you for providing me a peaceful one week before my BEC exam otherwise I would have messed up BEC. Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

  • NY, that suonds like you might have gotten a new sim that they need to “compare” to how other people did.

  • I got an email from NASBA today saying that I’m in the Wave 2 of AUD scores, because the AICPA has to wait for enough people to take a particular exam. I took it on 4/1, so it looks like AUD scores for Wave 1 might be done.

  • Hey all, look. We are all burnt out and frustrated. Some of us are staying blitzed to survive this and some may already have that perfect cliff picked out to dive off of. But Jeff has been there too. Most of us are avoiding other responsibilities in our lives to refresh constantly. Jeff has been there too. But ya know what? He has served his time and now deserves to be able to live his life as he chooses. And he still, somehow, finds time to keep this running and active for all of us. There are over 40,000 hits a day on this site. If he is asked a question he may not see it before enough comments come in to flood another page or so. And I can only imagine how many e-mails he gets a day.

    Sorry for the sermon or soap-box. I am just saying, be mad at NASBA, or the AICPA, or even me for all I care, but please give Jeff a break. He has done nothing to deserve negativity and again, has been there too.

    I know this may not apply to everyone.

    On behalf of the majority of the users of this blog, THANK YOU JEFF!!

  • CA AUD,

    It is nice to know that I am not the only one waiting. I’m starting to freak out because it took nine weeks for me to receive my REG score only to find out I got a 72. This waiting is torture!

  • In response to a complaint about me not getting back to them via e-mail, I have set up Club 75.

    I give away many hours of my time a week to helping people in any way that I can – and have been glad to do so. Still, I get complaints.

    This is a solution, I think.

    This way – if I don’t get back to someone who has subscribed – they actually have a right to complain.

    https://www.another71.com/club-75

    Have a great weekend everyone.

  • Ernie, I am still waiting for CA AUD results as well. I know of some people who have received them, but both myself and another coworker have yet to receive our AUD scores.

  • Hey all. I just got this from a NASBA coordinator.

    “Generally, REG scores are the last ones to be released. We’ve yet to receive REG scores, so it appears it’ll be Tuesday due to the Holiday. You still may want to check online tomorrow.”

    aaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RK… the report will be mailed to you, you’ll get it in a few days probably, it’ll be on the back of your score report

  • I took FAR May 4th, and just found out I failed. This was my first time taking. The site says people who fail are supposed to get a diagnostic report indicating which parts you need work on. Does anyone know where we can get that report, or is it going to be mailed to us since I haven’t gotten anything?

  • I received my FAR score from MA last night(around 10ish) although I know someone who took it the day after me (4/22) and hasn’t gotten his score

  • I believe NASBA gets the scores and if your state is a NASBA state then your scores will be posted on the NASBA site. If your state is not a NASBA state then NASBA forwards the score info they received onto your non-NASBA state (eg IL, VA, etc) and then that state board will post your scores. So for example, NASBA receives scores and if you are PA your score will be available on NASBA site since b/c PA is a NASBA state but if you are VA then NASBA submits the information to VA and the VA state board then posts the scores on VA Board site.

  • “Does your contact have any info on REG, or is it still in the black hole known as the AICPA?”

    Here’s an idea for the AICPA……how about giving a REASONABLE REG exam, free of ridiculous simulations that cause everyone to scratch their heads? With all the material in that section, why throw such crazy simulations out there? Hit an individual tax return sim, then a corporate tax return sim and leave it at that…..

  • In all honesty, I really do think they have someone assigned to monitor this board….am I paranoid?

  • I’d pay an additional fee if there was a guaranteed 2 week turn around or something similar.

  • I wish VA scores were posted on NASBA site since the VA Board can’t seem to get a functioning website to include posting of score information after over 4 months since they launched the so called “new and improved” e-gov site. Nothing improved that I can see and only thing new is less available information (eg scores) nice to see our tax dollars hard at work.

  • Internet score posting is driving us all nuts, but it could be worse.

    I have a friend who had to pay $7.00 to see her nursing board scores on the internet.

    Can you imagine having to pay extra for the “privilege” of seeing your CPA exam scores on line?

  • I thought that IL, VA and CA were Non-NASBA states? In reading this blog my understanding is that Prometric forwards the scores to the AICPA. The AICPA forwards the scores to (1) the state boards of states who are not affiliated with NASBA (IL, VA & CA) and also to NASBA who administers score releases for the NASBA states. Historically the Non-NASBA states boards (IL, VA &CA) are quicker at turning scores around (by a day or two) than NASBA. Is that the way it works? I’m confused because Anonymous says that a NASBA is saying they received scores for VA ( a non-NASBA state) Am I missing something?

  • I had emailed candidatecare@nasba.org 2-3 days back inquiring about my AUD score, I just got a reply saying that I will receive my result in Wave 2. I gave AUD on April 17. Needless to mention that I am not happy to hear this. But atleast I know that when I have to start waiting again πŸ˜›

  • Jeff,
    If NASBA really has REG scores, when can we expect to see them posted on the NASBA website?

  • well, after NASBA said they had rec’d REG scores for VA I contacted the VA Board and what do you think they said – yep – they said they had not received any REG scores yet. I don’t get it. If NASBA indicates they have rec’d REG scores for VA what is the hold up between NASBA and the VA Board?

    Normally it wouldn’t be a big deal if we could access our scores via the “new and improved” VA website and thus have the ability to check over the weekend but, absent this ability we are at the mercy of calling the board either before they close today or wait until they return to work on Tuesday. What a long weekend it will be….

  • Jenny in CA-that is correct. I have never seen an update on California’s website for a score after about 9 or 10 am. That doesn’t mean its not possible…

    Don’t worry you will be fine just stay focused and get it done so you can move on with your life. I’ve taken these tests about seven times and I finally got fed up with the test and my half @$$ attempts and I committed to studying and finishing them. Losing credits is the worst. it took me about 3 years to decide to be serious about passing

  • Has anyone got thier audit result in MD. I have been told they haven’t receive the results from NASBA. is this true??

  • That is the most promising post I’ve seen in 3 days.
    Hope it turns out to have validity

  • So I just called NASBA and asked if they had received any REG scores for VA and they said YES but that I would have to speak to my state coordinator to get any further information. They transferred me but of course, the VA coordinator did not pick up. So what the heck? If NASBA said they have received scores for VA why hasn’t VA posted these scores yet?

    Jeff – any idea?

  • I did appeal a 74 in AUD… and got no chage of score…
    I have not heard of anyone who has appealed and got a change of score.

  • “ive mailed jess regarding REG.. with an asap reply
    but he hasn?t really bothered to reply me back
    and im sure he checks his mail every now and then.
    disappointed jeff”

    kush – my apologies.

    I get an e-mail everytime someone leaves a comment…so I have hundreds of e-mails each day…sometimes the e-mails get lost in the crowd…I haven’t figured out how to rectify this.

    I was out all day yesterday…I do my best. I’m getting my tires rotated today and my plan was to answer e-mails while I waited.

    Sorry you were “disappointed”.

  • ive mailed jess regarding REG.. with an asap reply
    but he hasn’t really bothered to reply me back
    and im sure he checks his mail every now and then.
    disappointed jeff

  • Jeff,

    IF REG is released by AICPA tonight, isn’t it true that NASBA won’t start its preliminary processing until Tuesday, since they are closed on Monday for Memorial. This would mean that Tuesday night or Wednesday night would be our best bet.

    I realize their IT can upload on weekends, but the preliminary steps would require more staff huh?

  • anna,

    im not sure this is my 1st time to take it, but i did read something last night that said your chances of success in an appeal are 1 in a 1000… I think if its your 2nd or third time to take it though they might be alittle easier on you though.

  • Lee-IND

    Truth be told: all sims are strange to me….but I got a SIM that to me should have been in FAR…this is the second time I’ve taken this exam and I received something similar last time. I don’t have any idea how I’m supposed to study for this thing. I don’t even remember what the other sim was.

  • I got the score for FAR in New Mexico this morning – 87 and I’m done with all four! Thanks, Jeff, this site has kept me sane–at least as sane as you can be while checking your scores 10 to 15 times per day πŸ™‚

  • Your score will be released in wave 2 in June. Penny Vernon, Manager Candidate Care, NASBA

    Isn’t that just dandy?? So much for the cut-off/Wave 1 theory…another month of waiting…which means I can’t start studying for another section until late June…Thanks, NASBA!!

    Fuming in GA!

  • My friend got his FAR score last night around 930 pm.
    We’re in Louisiana. Our coordinator, Pinkney, handles Louisiana and Georgia.

  • Thanks JP CA – You mean they don’t update scores after 9~10 AM every day ? I really want to know when they update a score each day. It was my first try to take the exam and I don’t know well about this system. Nowdays I’m not easy in my mind without scores, but I think I need to get away from visiting CA board a couple of hours. Anyway thanks this site and all of yours..!!

  • anyone get FAR in CT this AM?? Sat on 4/27…didnt think that was wave 2… but still ‘error no score found’

  • Jeff – another71.com says:

    re: FAR scores

    I think FAR people will wait until Wave 2?approx. 78% of Wave 1 scores are out, which is higher than the normal 75% or so.

    Sorry for those still waiting?

    Jeff,
    Thanks for the update. Another one month of wait πŸ™

  • Thanks, I will wait patiently, although it is not easy? Congratulations :–)

    Jeff, any idea about the delay for AUD in NY? I took the exam during the first week of April.

  • Lee

    Does NASBA email all the people who have to wait until the second wave or did you contact them first?

  • I sat for FAR in GA on 4/1 and I have not received my score. I do remember seeing two posts last night from GA test takers receiving FAR.

  • Jeff,

    Does your contact have any info on REG, or is it still in the black hole known as the AICPA?

  • Jeff, do you think more AUD scores will be posted since they have only released 60 something percent?

  • I havent seen any FARs from GA yet.. I sat for FAR on 4/27 and I havent heard anything either..

  • Will have to wait until wave 2. Just received email from NASBA that my score will not be released until wave 2. At least I know. I am a little bummed but will concentrate on getting back to studying FAR. I did get that strange sim.

  • “Jeff, Do they hold random tests for reasons other then a new sim or bordlerline grade cases?”

    Not sure about this one.

    re: FAR scores

    I think FAR people will wait until Wave 2…approx. 78% of Wave 1 scores are out, which is higher than the normal 75% or so.

    Sorry for those still waiting…

  • Has anyone from GA seen FAR results yet? I sat on 4/28 and was hoping for good news before the long weeekend.

  • Its my 1st time to take the exam and I havent received my score yet… Even though I was eligble to take the exam, I wont reach 150 hours until August. Does that mean I might have to wait until then before I can see my score??? I didnt think that was the case but some FAR scores for TN have already been released.

  • Jenny in CA- I am in CA and took far on 4/2 and received my score two days ago.

    From my experience it seems that the CBA site is only updated once a day and I don’t recall ever seeing a new score after about 9 or 10 am.

    But I still check every couple hours since I’m waiting for my reg score.

  • Hello Jeff, from your experience do you think that all of wave one is released for FAR, or their is more to come. Thanks

  • “Remember- if you don?t have your score yet?it doesn?t mean you failed?it means nothing. Maybe you got a new sim and are Wave 2 automatically?who knows?it means nothing as far as your score is concerned.”

    Jeff, Do they hold random tests for reasons other then a new sim or bordlerline grade cases?

    Thanks,

    Texas FAR

  • Hey hi Jeff!!!

    I took my exams for the CO board at LA on April 1, 2 & 3 – All 4 papers…

    I had got my results for the AUD and BEC and have passed both successfully !!

    But its been 4 days since i got my AUD & BEC, i have not got FAR & REG…

    Any ideas?? Does that mean it would come up in the second wave?? Could u tell me tentative week they would release the second wave??

    Is there any reason for me to be worried???

    Please help Jeff!!!

  • No FAR score for me in Texas…Guess I’m in the second wave…I’ll be back to check on the second wave predictions…Thanks for the site Jeff…Good luck to all.

  • Congrats Amy! Well done!

    If you (or anyone else) that are done want to write a story on your experience – what worked for you – what didn’t – what you learned throughout the whole process…that would be great!

    e-mail it to me at another71cpa@gmail.com if you’re interested (please include a pic if you’re comfortable with that.)

    -Jeff

  • For those of you waiting on reg I am sorry last October I took it on October 6th and got my score back on Jan 1st hung over and feeling great with a 79 however pissed off I had to wait a full 12 weeks. I feel your pain their is hope!

  • Yes, if the clock runs out, it will save what you have input for the sims at that point.

  • yeah your answer will be saved. MD results are out today for wave 1. I passed AUD and FAR…………………whooooooo what a weekend……….

  • Erin,
    I’m in WI took FAR on April 29th no word yet and killing me. I also wonder if anyone in WI has received scores yet?

    Try to have a great weekend!

    Dan

  • does anyone know if your answers entered into the simulation are saved if you let the clock run out?

  • I feel rude! I was so excited last night about passing FAR and being done with this beast of an exam that I forgot to say some things.
    First of all, thanks, Jeff, for a wonderful web site! You have helped make this whole painful process a lot more emotionally tolerable.
    Congratulations to everybody who passed! For those of you who did not, please keep plugging. I have taken this a total of 9 times (FAR x 3, AUD, REG, and BEC each x 2). Believe me, I am not a “brimming with confidence” type person, and I hate studying with a passion, so if I could do it, anybody can.
    For those of you still waiting on scores…I know it’s really hard, but try to hang in there!
    Everybody have a good long weekend πŸ™‚

  • What are the odds that more states will release FAR today? I really dont want to wait another month.

  • Called VA board. Still has no my audit score. Now I have to wait until next week. Really want to know. Need to foucus on my REG next week too.

  • This is the reply I received from CO state board :-
    “Your FAR grade has not come in yet”

    I have no option but to wait until Wave 2, then… Have BEC scheduled next weekend. Back to BEC for now !

  • audit in NY,

    I’m in the same boat. I took AUD on 4/25 (NY) and still nothing. I just called and she gave a generic “scores are posted as they are released” response. No help.

  • Hello guys do you think NASBA will release more FAR scores during the day/evening, or that’s it for wave one.

  • I feel like theres more people than usual that are still waiting (more than the normal wave 2 holdovers)…maybe more will be released later?

  • this is really unfortunate for us folks waiting for REG. I cant imagine having to wait until wave 2 to get a score. I took REG on 4/5 in MA. I do recall the 1st sim I got to be somewhat of a surprise. The topics were familiar, but what they were asking us to solve was somewhat complex to me. I sat there frozen for what seemed like 20 minutes…by the time I gathered myself, I had 24 mins for the 2nd sim and clicked finish with 1 min to spare. Anyway – hopefully we hear by next week. good luck everyone

  • NO FAR in CA ! really tired of waiting a score. It’s hard time to check it every day ! If no score this wave.. OMG !!!

  • No FAR in CO! Seems like a lot of us, but I guess we all are in the 2nd Wave. I can’t believe I am going to have to wait another month to find out my score! GRRRR.

    Oh well. Have Reg in a week have to stay focused.

  • blbennett32 – I took FAR on Apr 25th in Missouri and haven’t gotten my score. I was wondering if mine might not be released during Wave 1, but maybe they haven’t even released them yet?? I wish we got updates from our board like IL does….

  • I’m from MA, have seen NO results posted from anyone in MA besides BEC. I’m waiting for my AUD score, trying to figure out if I should just give up until Wave 2….

  • Me too I took FAR in CO early april and nothing yet, i saw some people received their FAR score. I wonder how this work??!!!

  • according to VA board, no REG scores have been received. its going to be a long and fretful memorial weekend.

  • Where oh where is REG? Wanting, Waiting, Wishing in SC for REG to post.

  • Tested for FAR on 04/2 for state of CO and still havent got my score….. which number is everyone calliing to varify if they got your score?

  • I’m from CT and just called NASBA as I did not receive my score yet. They said there is still a chance I can hear by the end of the month. If I don’t, I will be in the second wave. Does this seem right?

  • I’ve got FAR this morning. 86! It’s the same score as my auditing. Will them mess up my scores? What if is a mistake? If my scores are correct, then I passed CPA exam.
    Please hang in there, you will pass. Anyone can do it if you take one day at a time.

  • Any MA candidate in-house, I am just wondering if MA released any result aside from BEC. I am waiting for my FAR score, its my last one for MA

  • why the holdout on REG – has this happened before where their first release is everything but REG?

  • NY AUD 5/4 – got score on website 2 days ago, then it disappeared. It’s back this morning.

    REG 4/13 – still waiting

  • Still no AUD in Mass yet. Took exam 4/25. Here is the email response I got from Nasba

    “As scores are received, they are released. If you cannot view your score on-line, it hasn’t been received to date. All scores are due to be received by the end of June.”

  • I did not receive my FAR score last night(sat on 4/1) and I was hoping maybe it would post sometime over night but no score. Looks like it will be a very long month waiting for my score in the 2nd wave.

  • “Jeff, you were correct about NY releasing scores. I just got my FAR score back. I took it on 5/6 and got 88! I am finished with the CPA exam!!! Thank you for your wonderful website!”

    Nice job Kate…congrats on being done!

  • “But on the bright side, I am working a half a day of work today, and then driving the 7 hours to my ?home? for a long weekend, and I get to spend time with my 8 month adorable grandson!!! =)”

    Enjoy the weekend with him! … I bet he makes you forget about REG

  • So if you have a new sim, you’re automatically in wave 2? I did have a weird FAR sim that a few people commented on. I wonder if that’s my hold up. So frustrating. Oh well…

  • Still no FAR in NY for me…. from reading the other posts it seems that makes me a Wave 2 chump. Jeff any word from NASBA on a possible trickle-release?

  • I received my AUD score at 9pm last night. It was a 72. I immediately re-registered for it and will be taking again in July. I would say that is it for this AUD release. IF you have not received your scores yet, you will not get them until wave 2 if you are a NASBA state. It looks like REG and FAR are still outstanding for a lot of people and will be released in the next few days. GL to everyone out there. I will be checking this site again in august.

  • “Anyone in the great state of Maryland receive any FAR scores??? Took my exam on 4/22 and haven?t heard back yet.”

    Maryland has only released BEC scores so far…I’m not thinking it’s a great state anymore πŸ˜›

  • But on the bright side, I am working a half a day of work today, and then driving the 7 hours to my “home” for a long weekend, and I get to spend time with my 8 month adorable grandson!!! =)

  • I took REG in Michigan on April 1st……….so apparently this is one big April Fools on me! It is my last section and I would like to know if I can get on with my life, or start studying again! WHY does it take the AICPA, at the very least, OVER 7 weeks to grade an exam? I am so frustrated.

  • “FL I would go back and read the past 3 or 4 pages if you arent able to find an answer? i think I remember seeing several confirmations for FL scores. Im not sure if they were for AUD though? GL”

    Hmm I haven’t noticed anyone from FL posting about receiving an audit score in the last couple of pages… maybe it still hasn’t been released?

  • Jeff, you were correct about NY releasing scores. I just got my FAR score back. I took it on 5/6 and got 88! I am finished with the CPA exam!!! Thank you for your wonderful website!

  • Anyone in the great state of Maryland receive any FAR scores??? Took my exam on 4/22 and haven’t heard back yet.

  • Reg…Regggggggggggggggggggggggg….i cant take this waiting game much longer…..someone please post if they see reg scores up

    thanks

  • I took audit on 4/2 and didn’t find out my score until tonight (while others in my state learned there scores Monday night). For those who have not seen scores yet don’t worry yet that you have been pushed to wave two, NASBA has no clear way to release scores.

  • I guess that I’m just hoping against hope now, but has anyone from LA received their scores for audit?

  • FL I would go back and read the past 3 or 4 pages if you arent able to find an answer… i think I remember seeing several confirmations for FL scores. Im not sure if they were for AUD though… GL

  • Question**

    This is my 1st time to take the CPA exam and I was wondering if there is a chance that I could receive my score sometime tomorrow, even though someone on here has already received their score for FAR in TN????

  • “Anonymous says:

    I sat for audit in Florida on April 7 and still no score. Has anyone from Florida received their audit score yet?”

    I took AUD on Apr 11 in FL and still haven’t received my score. I’ve been asking the same question. Any other FL AUD people???

  • I just want to know what it feels like to pass. Just once and maybe that’ll be enough to keep me going.

  • I got my FAR score for CT tonight at 9 PM and passed and am finally done with the exam (I must have taken the exam over 10 times by now so I’ve definitely been in your shoes for all of you that may have fallen short of the 75). So good luck to everyone and thank you thank you thank you Jeff! This site has really helped pick up my spirits and push me forward throughout this whole process. I don’t know what I would have done without it!

  • I took AUD on 4/1 and still nothing. I vaguely remember a weird sim, but I’m not sure. I guess I might be waiting for another month.

  • no problem. im waiting too, there is no more brutal feeling than seeing others getting scores and having to wait more. red wine helps πŸ˜‰

  • hey anonymous – in ct, still no FAR? hard to believe that person got thier score since CT only uploads once a day and its like WAY early in the am?.check tommorrow morning.

    Thank you! I might be able to sleep tonight knowing there’s a possibility the score will be there tomorrow.

  • I think we need a FAQ post or something that explains this process. Anybody have such a link?

  • Bcool*

    nice, 89 is awesome…

    What date did u take your exam on? I know diff states will vary, but im hoping there might be a slight comparison there..

  • So if FAR’s are released in your state then the entire wave is released? If we don’t have it now we are in the second wave?

    These questions have probably been asked 1M times and are probably so annoying but I can’t help it.

    I am pretty sure I will turn gray if I wait that long.

  • hey anonymous – in ct, still no FAR… hard to believe that person got thier score since CT only uploads once a day and its like WAY early in the am….check tommorrow morning.

  • So it has been confirmed that FAR has been released for TN?? Yeah I really dont want to wait another month.. IM hoping there might be a chance that some TN scores will be released at midnight..

  • I have no idea. It looks like several people did receive their score in TN so hopefully we will get lucky and they will submit some more scores by the morning? I dont know if I can make it til June to find out my score.

  • Hi everyone,

    Congrats to everyone celebrating victories tonight. For those who came up on the short end of a 75…as you know…I’ve been there. I almost quit the exam, but I’m glad I didn’t. Keep moving forward!

    For those frustrated b/c their score didn’t come out…I know how that feels too.

    A year from now – when everyone here is a CPA..any failed sections or frustration over not getting a score…will be a distant memory (it will be replaced by worrying about CPE πŸ™‚ )

    I haven’t heard anything about REG (sorry REG people!).

    For those curious about Memorial Day…I got my score for REG a year ago on Tuesday morning after Memorial Day…so in theory with the new system…it could come out Monday evening if scores still are not out.

    Remember- if you don’t have your score yet…it doesn’t mean you failed…it means nothing. Maybe you got a new sim and are Wave 2 automatically…who knows…it means nothing as far as your score is concerned.

    I try to keep up with the site questions but I won’t do a very good job of it this weekend…I’ll be helping with a family project.

    Thanks again for everyone’s contributions to the site…I really appreciate it.

    Have a good weekend…(try to enjoy it REG people…I know the misery of a holiday weekend without a score…I did it a year ago…)

    -Jeff

  • by the way 85 is really good thats awesome…

    Adam*

    Do you think that they just havent released the FAR scores yet for TN, or do you think that we will have to wait for the second wave of scores?

  • awesome that makes me feel alittle more confident, atleast for now… If I dont pass that might make it sting alittle worse! ha.

  • “Hunter,
    I just got my FAR grade back and I surprisingly passed. Seriously, I completely messed up on the first simulation and was completely confused on the second. And on top of that, I didnt know about a third of the MC questions. As soon as i left that test, I knew I didnt pass. I got my score back today, 85. How did that happen? I have absolutely idea.”

    Hahaha did you take it in MA on 4/27 because I had the SAME exact testing scenario, same exact result, and same disbelief when I got my score tonight. Congrats to all who passed! And good luck to those taking parts soon!

  • Hunter, I took FAR at the end of Apr in TN and I have not received my score yet. Several people have posted on here stating they have received their FAR scores.

  • I honestly just dont know how to handle the wait any longer….I feel like I am going to have a nervous breakdown!

  • Hunter,
    I just got my FAR grade back and I surprisingly passed. Seriously, I completely messed up on the first simulation and was completely confused on the second. And on top of that, I didnt know about a third of the MC questions. As soon as i left that test, I knew I didnt pass. I got my score back today, 85. How did that happen? I have absolutely idea.
    Same thing happened with my friend. she thought she, honestly, failed. but she passed.
    so dont worry about it.

  • I study my ass off, I know I study more than gleim recommends but my biggest problem is the time issue.. It was hard for me to focus because I kept thinking I was going to loss track of the time and fall behind..

  • By the way I felt pretty good about FAR until i got to my 1st simulation and I literally had no clue how to do what they were asking… I mean I pretty much just guessed several numbers and put them in the answer boxes and my writing section for that one was awful as well… Luckily I am pretty sure that I nailed the second simulation.. This is my 1st time to take it, do you think that one simulation will hold me back very much?

  • I took FAR, I am pretty sure you will have to wait for the second wave to see your score. I was told by an official that usually if you take it in May your score will be included in the second wave..

  • I am there with you, Hunter.
    Which section did you take? I took AUD on 5/4 in OH. This waiting is killing me. Looks like NASBA updated the scores today but my score is still not up. I even emailed to NASBA twice but no reply. So frustrating.

  • I havent heard anything from OH yet…. I took mine on 4/27… Is there a chance I will have to wait for the second wave to be released?

  • I still haven’t received my AUD scores yet out of Delaware and my sims seemed audit related, so I don’t believe I had a sim that related to FAR.

  • V says:

    Got Colorado AUD and FAR. Passed both.. All the best everyone else.

    V,
    Congrats !! Did you just check your results? Were they just loaded? Did you try to check them an hour before also? Sorry to ask these questions as I am also awaiting on FAR scores from CO. Thanks !

  • Has anyone received an AUD score in OH? I am still waiting, took it 4/17………….

  • KF –

    I had such a “weird-looking” REG sim today. Might have been the same one you were hit with. It was really obscure. The Becker REG books didn’t cover it in any depth at all.

    I looked up the topic I was hit with in both FAR and REG sources (not just Becker) and found out it really is a REG topic. However, FAR does cover something very similar.

  • KF – I don’t exactly remember my sims very well at this point so I’m assuming they weren’t weird. I do remember thinking when I left that nothing seemed crazy so I shouldnt have to wait for 2nd wave. I emailed the people from the Contact us part on the NASBA site and I got an email this morning saying that they received my score and it should be posted soon. I would say try that if you havent heard anything yet.

  • Not yet, and I’m not sure that I even want to know after feeling confident then crushed by that sim. I sat on 4/10.

  • Is there anyone else from PA waiting on FAR? I like the looks of Jim’s CO breakdown. They just may not be fully posted yet.

    Does anyone know if the copy will come out by mail even if the score isn’t available online?

  • I don’t know why it’s taking them too long. is it that hard to process some scores online

  • Jim, add me to your category…. Even, I am crazy to think that I would receive FAR score in Wave 1

  • KF – Although I haven’t taken FAR, during my AUD exam, I did receive a FAR-like simulation.

  • I am new to this process of predictions and waiting but is it crazy of me to think:

    5 CO people waiting for FAR.

    2 have received
    3 still waiting.

    More must be coming? Am I crazy?

  • I also hope the same, DMC PA…. It’s hard to wait for score till Wave 2… Let’s keep our fingers crossed and expect for the best !

    I am also still waiting.

  • Ray I’m waiting on a FAR score in PA too. I saw Amy got hers. Hopefully they aren’t all coming out at same time.

  • BB – did your exam have the “weird” simulation that looked like it belonged on FAR instead of AUD?

  • Anyone check earlier in the night for their FAR score and get the “Error: Score not found” message and then checked later to find their score posted? Still waiting for my score in GA. Am I wasting my time refreshing since my score hasn’t been posted yet while others from GA have already received their scores?

    Anyone from Colorado got their scores yet?.??? please respond

    Anonymous,
    Quite a few have received their scores from Colorado. I am still waiting

  • So, if I still have not received scores for CO tonight, is it a possibility that scores are still in the process of being loaded or should I say Wave 1 is over tonight?

    Thanks for any responses !

  • I took NY Audit on 4/7 also, score showed up at 10:00 tonight. 78.
    3 Down and I have FAR on Tuesday, so hopefully I can be done this whole process soon. Good luck to everyone still waiting.

  • TX Sarah…I’m still waiting for my FAR score also. When I spoke to someone at the Board today, they said FAR came out today and to look in the morning for the scores. I assume they meant Friday morning. However, others on this website already got scores today. So, hopefully some more FAR scores will be released in the morning. Otherwise, I’m pretty sure we are in the second wave. Let me know if you get yours in the morning and I’ll do the same.

  • I passed FAR!!!! I could’ve sworn I failed, got a 76!!! One more to go, BEC next Saturday

  • Has anyone had Texas FAR scores posted since the ones that got them this morning? I’ll be sooo frustrated if I’m in Wave 2, I got my AUD score on Tuesday, only 8 days after taking the test. No FAR score and I took it 3 weeks earlier than AUD…

  • mka – I took AUD in NY on 4/7 – it seems like a lifetime ago. I can’t believe it’s taking so long for our grades to be released. When did you take the exam?

  • I took it in Madison. My scores from previous testing windows are still available to view too. I don’t get it because I shouldn’t be able to see those.

  • Colorado-Audit 66
    -BEC 73
    -FAR Next Friday

    Gotta pick myself up,dust up and get going.

  • I think I know what is happening. There is a tracker that says how many times each Section Number has clicked the submit button. They add a minute to how long you have to wait for each click. Therefore I won’t receive my score until August 23, 2016.

  • Adam, when did you take it? My FAR score in TN is out. I hope you don’t have to wait until wave 2.

  • Congrats to all who passed!!! Good luck to those about to sit. I am waiting for REG in GA- took 4/3. I sit for AUD on the 29th. I am expecting FAR and BEC in wave 2. This has been a long week and promises to be a long weekend for REG folks.

  • DONE 4/4

    IN FAR – 83!

    THANKS ALL

    I would have started losing sections May 31, what a relief!!!!!!

  • FAR in PA is my last… Looks like my last is going to be a second wave. Sucks because I took it April 18

  • still waiting for FAR in TN. I really hope I dont have to wait until wave 2 for my last section!

  • I passed BEC and am studying for Reg.

    I have been taking this exam for 6 years now. I took the last paper exam and got 4 – 70 through 73. It’s been a long ride.

    We just have to keep on pushing!

  • I passed AUD earlier this week 79, but i’m not very optimist regarding FAR crossing fingers

  • So Audit in NY is out..Congratulations to all those who passed and good luck to rest. Anyone from CT got their AUD score? I m tired of waiting :((

  • 76 in FAR thats all that matters..congratulations for all who passed and best of luck for all the hopefuls..

  • “i sat for FAR in april 4 and still nothing OMG when it?s going to end”

    right there with you, so nerve racking

  • Sat for NY AUD on 5/4, checked for score yesterday, 94 showed from 2pm to midnight. Waiting for REG score, so I checked AUD score again this morning, it shows “error…” now. What’s going on?

  • I sat for audit in Florida on April 7 and still no score. Has anyone from Florida received their audit score yet?

  • Took audit in Georgia on 04/08 and still waiting. Did my score get held until the next month? Did this happen to anyone else in Georgia?

  • Thanks for the info. A-TX. Hopefully we’ll get the results tomorrow afternoon.

    Congratulations to all who passed BEC, FAR, and Audit. For those who didn’t, persevere until you make it.

  • The email is from the Texas State Board.

    “No Reg has come out yet”

    I presume that means no REG nationwide. So lets all forget about REG for now πŸ™

    Hi,

    I sat for the REG section of the cpa exam on 4/24/09. I believe that
    puts me in Wave 1 (?). Please do you know if the scores have been
    released and when they will be posted to the website?

    Thank you so much.

  • “I know you all are waiting for score information, but for anyone using Becker that has taking the final exams, why does it mark things wrong when you get them right?!?! For the simulations, what I assume to be an incorrect answer comes up in yellow, yet the solution has the same number I entered. This happens on the MCQ too sometimes. Does anyone have this same experience?!?!”

    I had exact experiance!

    Also, does any one get your AUD score yet in CA? I took it on April 1, and have’t got my score

  • YAHOOOOO WHAT A relief…much needed…..long waited FAR is out and I passed it…………Yahoo..godd luck for rest of you

  • Regarding the Rescores that was actually posted as a story on this site. Thats the answer the AICPA gave Jeff

  • YAY… FAR 77! Took it April 10th and was VERY worried, but YAY!!! This was the 2nd attempt for me, 70 on the first try…

    Took AUD 5/6 and still waiting, but it will be (hopefully) my last one!

    REG 10/11 75
    BEC 11/26 76
    FAR 4/10 77 (last July 70 first try)
    AUD 5/6 fingers crossed! (last Aug 50s but I barely studied and moved in between exams)…

    Good luck to everyone still waiting!

  • its such a bummer. I was working till 12pm and then trying to study for an hour each night. I guess that wasn’t worth it. I hate to admit I’m a damn auditor. How long does the appeal process take?

  • I’m not sure of the validity of this, but I read earlier this evening that of all the rescore requests in 2008, not one single score was changed. Does anyone know if this is accurate?

  • Any intel whether AICPA released REG results today-that way we’d know whether to stay up till the wee hours or call it a day and stalk this site again tomorrow?

  • I got 3 74s on Audit and appealed the last. No change. I have never heard of it getting over turned.

  • I took FAR in GA on 4/1 and no score as of now. I hope I don’t have to wait another month. Is there a chance it may still post tonight? I read that someone has received a FAR score in GA already tonight.

  • I’m not even going to get a raise for this. My company is in the toliet.

  • 73 on Aud. I don’t even know how this happened. I was so sure of myself when I left the exam. I told myself that I was 90% sure I passed. I guess that is what happens when you take it during busy season and you are working 70 hrs a week. Is it even worth it to appeal? I almost positive the content in my written sections would take it over the top if they actually read it and didn’t just look at grammar?

  • I’m still waiting for audit in SC (NASBA state)taken on May 2nd. I’m pretty sure I’ll be waiting another month for my score. Just crossing my fingers its worth the wait! Once I pass I’m taking my CPA bonus and going to a beautiful 5 star restaurant…i can almost taste it now!

  • Still waiting on AUD here in IL – took exam 4/7 – congrats to all those who passed! Never give up, to everyone else!

  • Question:

    For those that passed. When you hit the submit button, where was your mouse arrow located on the submit button? Right, Left, On the word submit, Above the word submit, Below the word submit, etc

  • Teague719 thank you so much…. Do not stress it .. You probably did perfect.. If anything you can always take it again!!! Good luck and keep me posted

  • Jeff,

    I PASSED FAR with an 81. Thanks so much for hosting this great site. For all of the insanity I just experienced, this site kept me sane.

    I am now done with all parts. YAHOO!!!

  • I promise, if i can pass so can you. Good luck everyone! i promise Becker works.

    Yeah for getting FAR for the weekend. On to study for REG!

  • CR FAR,

    I am waiting for my FAR score in Illinois (took on 4/1). I feel like I did ok, but I think I’m in the second wave and its driving me nuts.

    AUD 93
    REG 88
    BEC 81
    FAR ???

  • OH my goshhhhhhhhhh.. how in the world did this happen .. i swear i thought i failed… i actuay passed… i passseddd!!!! PEOPLE its so doable…. 83!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • No, i was referring to hopeful_cpa’s comment above. REG doesnt seem to be out anywhere…… damn frustrating if you ask me.

  • Finally PASSED in Ohio! 90 up from a 73 the last time. Keep with it everyone! Good luck!

  • Man Im bummed, my scores werent showing up earlier today so I thought they were updating my audit score in Delaware. Still nothing. In all honestly, I think I would rather know that I failed then have to wait another month for my score.

  • I am in PA, and I sat on 5/7 and got my score. I was one of the unlucky 74’s. This was my third time on FAR. 69, 67, 74. The 1st and 3rd times I took it I walked out in tears, which ws this time. The second time I walked out and told everyone I passed, and got the worst score!

  • Just received FAR in GA (NASBA state).

    BEC: 90 (taken 1/12/09)
    REG: 87 (taken 2/27/09)
    AUD: 95 (taken 4/03/09)
    FAR: 97 (taken 4/30/09)
    while attending Grad School full-time and working part-time. It can be done!

    Done!!!! I cannot recommend GLEIM strongly enough.

  • REG NY, its probably your old score. I haven’t seen any posting yet of ANYBODY who has received a REG score yet…

  • GD I just got my audit score back, was hoping to be done (passed three) and I got a 73. Its the only one I felt confident leaving too. Wtf

  • I just saw my reg score posted but it’s the same failing score as the first time I took the test. I’m wondering if reg has actually been released in ny. Anyone in ny get their reg score tonite?

  • OMG!!! I passed AUD finally!!! I was so depressed last time after I received 74. People who just received 74, don’t be so discouraged. You will pass eventually with another try!!! YAY I’m done. πŸ™‚

  • I just got my Audit score in ME. It was the 2nd try(49->78). I feel soo lucky. Good luck to everyone!

  • DONE:
    REG 91
    BEC 76
    FAR 82
    AUD 75….75!

    THANK GOD THIS IS OVER, GOOD LUCK TO THE REST OF YOU GUYS πŸ™‚

  • Anyone get FAR in NY?? I want to know if I’m Wave 2 or not.

    To everyone who’s posted a score/waiting please please PLEASE say section and state to help cut down on repititive questions!

  • Melissa, keep smiling and keep trying. If it were simple, everyone would do it and then the value of the CPA would diminish. Not many people pass any, let alone all sections, on their first try – so keep at it and the second time studying will be much easier and less strenous!! Good luck!

  • I just got my AUD score!! I passed!! My first one…so EXCITED!!! 3 more to go…i keep looking at the score to make sure its real!!

  • Melissa…was this your first time sitting for FAR? I got a 72 the first time I sat.

  • 74. that was the worst thing I could have seen right now. REG on the 30th and it would have been my last one.

  • FAR is out in MA (a NASBA state)! Finally a CPA!!!!!!!

    Took the exam in mid-April and it became available between 8-9pm tonight.

    Still no sign of your mother. Oh well.

  • The following in PA

    Error: Score not found.

    Please verify Section ID Number and Date of Birth format and re-submit.

    UGH!!!

  • NASBA FAR IS OUT
    NASBA FAR IS OUT
    NASBA FAR IS OUT
    NASBA FAR IS OUT
    NASBA FAR IS OUT

    GOT AN 83!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jeff, after you’re finished on the 19th hole, any chance you can update your “Revised NASBA release prediction” section above? Cheers.

    Just got my score in TN 73. Got to start studying again.

    Is that for auditing?

  • I know you all are waiting for score information, but for anyone using Becker that has taking the final exams, why does it mark things wrong when you get them right?!?! For the simulations, what I assume to be an incorrect answer comes up in yellow, yet the solution has the same number I entered. This happens on the MCQ too sometimes. Does anyone have this same experience?!?!

  • Anyone heard on FAR in NY Yet? I took the exam 4/27 and still waiting. Studying for Audit now and taking it 5/30 but I can’t concentrate……..

    I need REG to be done. I made a 74, then anothe
