CPA Exam Scores and Results Predictions – January/February 2009 – Wave 1

Here are my predictions for the January/February 2008 Wave 1 (NASBA) release.

Keep in mind that approximately 75% of all eligible Wave 1 scores (exams taken January 2 – February 7) will get released in Wave 1. The rest will wait until Wave 2. If you don't get your score in Wave 1 and you should have, don't read too much into it.

For those new to this little waiting game, the Illinois Board of Examiners site is the best place to go to see what is going on with score releases. Typically, IL, CA, and VA release their scores on their own state websites and NASBA follows suit with their score release one to two days later.

By no means is this a perfect science, but the margin of error on any given prediction should be no more than two days. With that said, sometimes they switch AUD and REG around, but you can bank on BEC being first and FAR being last.

Visit the Illinois Board of Examiners site here.

Again, thanks to Joanne Vician at the IL BOE. Candidates in all 50 states appreciate what she does to keep us informed.

NASBA Releases:

  • BEC July/August Wave 1 release: August 15
  • BEC October/November Wave 1 release: November 18
  • BEC Jan/Feb Wave 1 prediction (NASBA): Feb 17
  • BEC Actual Wave 1 release (IL BOE): Feb 14

  • AUD Actual Wave 1 release (IL BOE): Feb 19
  • AUD Actual Wave 1 release (NASBA): Feb 20
  • REG July/August Wave 1 release: August 20
  • REG October/November Wave 1 release: November 21
  • REG Jan/Feb Wave 1 prediction (NASBA): Feb 23
  • REG Actual Wave 1 release (IL BOA): Feb 20

Is this prediction took into consideration that Monday, Feb 16th is a Holiday (President's Day)?

It's possible that non-Nasba will realease BEC on Tuesday, Feb 17th, and the rest (Nasba States) starting Feb 18th.

I took FAR on 1/3, and sitting Saturday for AUD (1/28). According to this, I will get AUD before FAR which is very ironic.

Anonymous 12 years ago

Im assuming you're new to the exam process? I took FAR a month before BEC and had a BEC score a week before FAR. The scoring process is agony, if nothing all, sit close to the end of the 2nd wave, you'll always have your score in about 2 weeks.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I took reg early and got it second wave and recieved an 87. Wave # is luck of draw but you have 75% chance of getting it first wave. If you get it in the second and thrid release (not the first day that everyone else gets it) of wave one or two, only then are you close and should start to worry.

PWR 12 years ago

No matter how well you performed on a part you took during the first month, you might not get your score until the second wave. Last window, I took FAR the second week of October. About 60% of the scores were released in wave 1. My score came out during wave 2. I scored a 99.

Anonymous 12 years ago

Wow, 99. Congrats!

Anonymous 12 years ago

i took far in october, and didn't receive my score until a few days after the second wave was released. i got a 94.

Anonymous 12 years ago

interesting.~....it seems it's just so random

Anonymous 12 years ago

I noticed that it seems that passing rates are lower in the Q1 testing window. My guess is that this is due to busy season, and lack of preparation by audit staff. Do you think that chances are higher of me passing then since I don't have Q1 busy season or is the passing "score" for a 75 always the same.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I took FAR on Jan 3 in NY and started checking for a score a couple of days ago. Am I really just wasting the time and agony of looking every day until Feb 24th? I will probably check every day regardless.. anyone else still going to look every day?

Kaitlyn 12 years ago

I have been. I can't help it. I'm too anxious to not check everyday. Even if there was a guaranteed date, I would still probably be checking. It's frustrating because I took BEC, so my test doesn't even have sims to grade.
Still waiting on that time machine......

If it makes you feel any better - I went through this waiting process (ahem) 14 times.

I sat in January for FARE and got my score already. Must be since it wasn't close to 75 or something. (The bad way..)

Anonymous 12 years ago

Its hard to not look. I passed the other three parts and am waiting on this one. I felt ok coming out of the test, so its probably going to be in the 75 ballpark. I also will lose BEC if I do not pass. My firm paid for half of the study materials and I have to pay them back that half if I don't pass all 4 in a year... guess what? My year was up on Jan 9th. So my Jan 3rd FAR is the focal point of me being on cloud 9 or crying, curled in the fetal position for the rest of tax season. Just kidding.. sort of.

Anonymous 12 years ago

Let me start by saying I love this site and it helped me through FAR last wave. I am taking AUD on Feb 7th and now after looking at the site I feel hope that I might get score in Wave 1. Dang! I was planning on Wave 2, so that means I will be obsessively checking forever now! This is my last exam, so I am super anxious.

another71.com 12 years ago

Hey - good luck with AUD on the 7th...I hope you get it in Wave 1! Waiting on your final score for 2 waves would be cruel and unusual punishment.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I just finished FAR. I think I did really well on the first testlet, but the second and third were HORRENDOUS. I know you get harder ones based upon how well you did, but I am just nervous because I got such obscure things in the second and third testlets. Simulations were pretty easy though. This is my last one so please send me good vibes and put a good word in for me at the AICPA!!!

This whole thing eats at me so much. I am trying to do work and study while waiting forever to get my grade back!! It can't come soon enough. I find myself finding any excuse to make myself feel better... I love clothes and fashion so I go nuts and buy awesome belts at tuckerblair.com or crazy expensive jordan sneakers at flight club to keep my mind off of it, now I need the CPA title so I can pay off all this debt. Someday I hope the title of CPA allows me to buy lots and lots of cool stuff!!!!

another71.com 12 years ago

Meghan,

My guess is that your score was left over from the last window...it didn't get cleared. I would call NASBA and ask them (800-272-3926). BEC scores aren't out yet...I think yours was a mistake.

Anonymous 12 years ago

Meghan,

The score that you saw posted was from the last time that you took the exam. My scores from last time are still showing up. If you are part of the first scoring then you should be getting your score soon.

Anonymous 12 years ago

yeah Meghan I agree with everyone it is left over and not updated yet; it is still too soon I am hoping by next Friday 2/20 to see mine; I took BEC on 01/02 also; it was a test though and well I feel it is not cool for them to leave out so much and then harp on a few tiny sections of huge topic.

Anonymous 12 years ago

Good question. You will see that the IL BOE site will state that Wave 1 scores are from Jan 2 - Feb 7 or so. They haven't updated the new score release page yet

https://www.illinois-cpa-exam.com/files/scorerelease.pdf

but look for it in the coming days as scores start to roll out.

This is my first experience with the waiting game and I'm already losing my mind. :) A friend of mine said the NASBA scores are always released first thing in the morning. Is this true?

I've never seen it, nor has anyone ever posted on here mid-day "hey, NASBA scores are out!"...of course, this site has only been around 11 months.

If it happened (i.e. you didn't miss-key the exam number the first time and got it right later on...always possible unless you use Firefox as your browser), then it's the first I've heard of it.

No I use IE and it happened to a co-worker of mine on the same day. Nothing was there in the morning but by the afternoon... a nice little suprise

It is nice to know I am not alone on the madness of checking for my scores. Every time I get ready to hit the button my heart races. I retook the Aud section Jan22 (failed initially with a 70). It is hard not to think about this crap constantly. ughh.

another71.com 12 years ago

The reason why you got your score later in the day is because NY had to tax your score before you received it.

Alexbmn 12 years ago

well this time I'm so sure I failed I'm not even nervous. Now after Audit on which I felt I had a chance I was quite jumpy.

echo-schmecho 12 years ago

Last window, second wave (so right before Christmas) NASBA had some AUD scores release around... um, let's see it was either 9am or 11am EST - I remember I took at "extra" break at work because I was so frustrated, and when I came back to my desk and checked, there they were. It was sort of an extraordinary situation though - the batch process had snagged the night before and a lot of scores that should have been up in the wee hours, the day after Illinois and other non-NASBA states posted them, showed up much later in the day. I know it happened to me and a couple other gals from TN who post on CPAnet forums, but I don't know how many other NASBA states it affected. Normally, though? NASBA scores, first thing in the morning, the day after Illinois, only.

I live in NY and that hasn't happened to me yet. I am currently waiting for FAR and it is killing me. This is the last part for me, so I am desparately checking every day, even though I have another week and a half to go. It takes an extra day or two to get the grades in NY right? The prediction is the 24th, so I should expect it on the 25th or 26th? My heart leaps into my throat everytime I click the "Submit" button.

Joanne Vician, IL 12 years ago

Good morning. BEC scores were received at the IL board early Saturday morning, 02-14-09. They are now posted online in IL. If my numbers are right, it appears we got all BEC for test dates through 02-07-09. I get that end-date by asking the AICPA what their cutoff will be and include it in my postings. The AICPA said they would include some exams in first wave for tests taken on 02-09-09 but only if they RECEIVED the results data that day from Prometric. So there is no guarantee about that date just like there is no guarantee you will be in first wave for the other sections even if you tested on January 2. (But I surely hope so.) One delay has to do with the number of new Sims panels exposed for a section that may hold up some scores. Not whether you did poorly, not whether you will get a 99. A second "delay" in release of AUD, REG and FAR is for those close to the cut getting second review.

No word yet on what section will be released next. Unfortunately there hasn't been a solid, predictable pattern for the last 3 or 4 windows.
And yes, Jeff is right in that only one written communication is scored, the other is pretest. And yes, all sims are scored.

They only release scores in two batches...wave 1 and wave 2...no straggler scores here and there....EXCEPT for the Wave 2 people who still don't get their scores and they come out 5 days later, which happened to me once...I was on the bubble (74).

If you don't get your score in Wave 1....it will come out a month later in Wave 2. If you don't get your score in Wave 2...it will come out around 5 days later.

What I don't understand is that NASBA always is the day after Illinois. Illinois updated on Saturday and Kentucky updated Monday. Even if NASBA was closed for the holiday, they should have had them on Tuesday and we would have received them this morning. Why is there no parity at all?

Also, NY, I just checked my old scores and they are still visible. This means that NASBA has not even started uploading scores. If we don't get them this morning, I'm going to be both confused/cry.

"Jeff-
What percentage of BEC in NYS went out for wave 1?"

Generally, %ages among the states are fairly consistent. Thusly, if 100% of IL went out, just about 100% of NYS BEC's went out.

Since BEC doesn't have essays, the process of rescoring shouldn't hold back scores by any appreciable amount as far as I know.

Anonymous 12 years ago

Is it even possible for BEC scores to be pushed into the second wave. I thought for BEC they always released 100% of scores since there are no simulations. I know with the other 3 it is usually only around 80-85%.

I was talking to a few people I work with and they said it depends on what version of the test you have. Both of them have already passed the exam. They said since scores are "scaled", they wait until they have enough of one version of the exam to release. For those of us who haven't gotten BEC back yet, it could be because not enough people in our respective states have taken the version of the test we all got, to grade them yet.

Unfortunately we'll never know since we can't talk about what was actually on our tests.

I have seen posting of scores on a Saturday before. Ideally, they should happen because they should be input today (they got them in the middle of the night it seems) and should be batch processed tonight.

Though, when was the last time that logic had anything to do with these silly exams? If it's Monday, its Monday and if its Tuesday, I'll survive. I know I failed anyway, so the score doesn't matter as much to me.

As for the BEC people, I don't know what to say. It's possible that someone questioned a question that was on your version of the exam. My feeling for that is if you could have passed without it, they should give you a provisional grade. I can't imagine what the hold up actually is.

OK. That is all.

Someone PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong, but....

I don't think it necessarily matters whether you passed or failed, for when you get your score. If you're right on the pass/fail ~75 bubble, and you took the exam early, you may not get it until Wave 2 so they can compare your score to other wave 2 testers, but other than that I don't think it really matters.

Yup, seems like the Friday and Saturday of 1/9 and 1/10 are messed up. I've sent email to NASBA asking about this. Although I'm sure I'm just going to get that generic answer back like most people seem to be getting. Maybe if people from those test dates bombard NASBA with questions we'll get an answer? Or it will just piss them off and we won't have gotten anywhere.

I am going to take FAR on 2/29. I just took one of the Becker "final exams" and did not receive a passing score, even though I thought I had the material covered pretty well. Does anyone else have any experience with the final exams, and are they more difficult than actual exam questions? That is what I'm hoping for!

The becker final exams are a joke. They purposely try to trick you. Honestly all I use them for are the simulations. Besides that they only hurt your convidence days before the test. They almost create more stress by taking the final exam. I took Audit final exams and got 60's on both and ended up with an 85 on the test.

Hey everyone...I try to keep up with the comments if people ask them (I check e-mail through my phone and can follow the comments there)...so if someone asks me something and I don't answer it...ask again if you don't find out the answer.

1. I know people who were eligible for Wave 1 but didn't get their scores and still passed...happened to two people I know personally who took FAR in the last window in early October and didn't get their score until Christmas. Both of them passed.

2. IL got REG Friday and FAR Saturday, which means REG Monday AM and FAR Tuesday for NASBA people. (Which would make me 4/4 :) )

Don't hope for FAR to be there on Monday, because it won't be, unfortunately. It'll be early Tuesday AM.

Congrats to everyone who has passed!...if you failed this window...look at my track record...it took me 9 fails and 5 passes to get this thing over with...KEEP MOVING FORWARD.

For those who are wondering if there is a correlation between being on the borderline for passing and receiving a score in Wave 2 don't be concerned. I have seen many posts that people received scores in Wave 2 and easily passed and it happened to me last window as well.
That may not help with the anxiety of waiting, but at least you may not convince yourselves that you didn't pass because your score was delayed for some reason. They do call Wave 1 an early release of scores.

This is just a frustrated rant so if you are not in the mood, please pass over this post. This is the second test in a row that I will have to wait until the second batch. This way of releasing the scores is very amateurish on NASBA and also complete BS. I (as well as all of you) have put our lives on hold in an attempt to pass this test. This has been at the sacrifice of time spent with family and a huge amount of time. While I do not want to cheapen the CPA designation by watering it down, a little more professionalism in score reporting would be nice. This would include reporting all the scores at once, having a website that works. This way we don't have to be constantly refreshing a blog to see if and when scores are released. I have a potential job that I am in the running for but cannot leave this job until I get my CPA so my life is on hold for a few weeks longer. The least they can do is make the reporting a little more efficient especially in this economy.

NY Here - At least now there is a reason that its not posted. I was dreading a generic response from them. We already know that NY is the slowest state for bureaucratic B.S. so it make sense that they were behind everyone else.

I just talked to a NY rep and she said the scores should be posted anytime this week and that we should get it in the mail by next week?

This applies to those who are included in the 1st wave of scores.

I checked my OASIS page which has been accurate in the past and it says "Scores have been attended but not yet received." I remember from last window that when they receive your grade it says that you should have your grade and if not call an 800 number. Not much but it helps you know where your at.

If anyone receives any info regarding NY PLEASE PLEASE let us know!!!!!!!!

NY Here - I just contacted the AICPA by phone and they said there is nothing that they are aware of that would hold up the NY scores from being posted. They recommended that I call NASBA, which I did this morning and they said all the scores received had been posted. He did say that they were expecting additional scores early next week, but I think that was for a different section.

In the end... I have no clue and those who do aren't saying much.

Is there anyone who received a FAR score from NY today?

Has anyone wound up passing FAR who pretty much BOMBED the simulations? (As in, you feel you did a decent job on the written communication tab, had no luck on the research tab, and had to just toss random numbers into 1/2-3/4 of the spreadsheets?)

I passed REG & BEC the 1st time, AUD the 2nd time, and today was my 3rd attempt at FAR. I just plain wasn't ready the first time, but it seems that the simulations were what kept me from passing the last time. I simply need more time than they give us to absorb the requirements and navigate through their maze of options.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I'll keep reviewing the more detailed stuff until I get my score report so I'll be ready in case I failed again. So depressing...

I am one who took FAR on 1/7 from PA and was disappointed not to find my score this morning being this is my last section.

My understanding is that if you do not receive your score by 5am you won't receive it till Wave 2.

However... IL BOE updated their site today claiming they have now released 99% of all FAR scores who were eligible for the early release.

Will this mean that other states will follow suit or is this unique only to certain states??

another71.com 12 years ago

I looked into it after my 2nd 74 on REG (is there anything worse than a 74?).

What I found is that once you submit your appeal for a re-grade, they won't actually grade it until the 25th of the month or so following the month the score releases come out for Wave 2. So, in this case...April 25. THEN, it takes 6-8 weeks...so we're talking late June before you even hear back from then and even THEN they say the likelihood of getting a new score are slim to none.

My advice: get a cram (like Yaeger's FAR cram...) and get back in there and be done with it.

I second the Yaeger CRAM. So far it has helped me pass FAR and REG, which in my book, totally makes it worth the investment. Also, I like the Wiley books - it's no joke that the review questions in there are significantly more involved and trickier than the questions on the actual exam.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I never used wiley or anything, but my tip is to use Becker final review (which is much better than their regular books)
It contains the essentials you need to know, and it is pretty well done. It is pretty expensive though, but it is worth the investment if you want to pass. (I found it was most helpful for FARE and BEC.)
Good luck everyone!

Six weeks seems reasonable. I think the number of hours is a better measure. I passed REG and FAR, studied between 80 to 100 hours on each.

6 weeks is perfect number if your dedicated to studying everyday

go 9 weeks and it will soak in and you can take more breaks

it is up to you; everyone is different

me I took breaks and did some time off it took me from 8/20-11/15 but I stress I took 7days off during the huricane and went to a wedding one weekend and did not cram really for it and I felt truely ready for it walking in

I think the whole time needed to study for a section is subjective. I studied for BEC for 2 days and passed with a 75. Studied two weeks for REG and AUD and passed. It probably has something to do with the quality rather than quantity. I used to ensure I did all the questions in the passmaster and then went ahead redoing those problem areas. Worked fine.....to each his/her own!

Anonymous 12 years ago

I agree with the above. I didn't study very long for FAR just did a lot of questions and crammed for 2 days and did well..all depends on what youre good at and what you get asked. you can study for 2 months and fail and study for 2 days like the above and pass. all luck of the draw.

Does anyone know if the FAR scores have been released in Connecticut? Could someone explain me how to obtain the results (Is the section ID number, the same that is on the Notice to schedule)?
Thank you
