CPA Exam Scores and Results Predictions – January/February 2009 – Wave 2

 

If you haven't already received your score from the January/February 2009 testing window, then you are in Wave 2 of the score releases. Even still, some of you will not get yours when every one else does in Wave 2. Your score will come within 1 to 5 days later and it is very likely that you are borderline.

Most of the people who get their scores after Wave 2 fall in the 73-76 range. I have seen some people score very high after Wave 2, so this isn't always the case, but in general, this is what happens.

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.

I was 4 for 4 on my predictions for the first Wave, but usually I bat .500 and the ones that I miss are off a day or two.

Visit the Illinois Board of Examiners site here. They are very good about letting candidates know what's going on and usually update their site in close to real time.

Update 4/16/09: I was wayyy off for this Wave of releases. For one, BEC got delayed, which pushed everything back. Two, they released FAR second…they never do that…FAR is almost always last. I was 4/4 in Wave 1 and 0/4 in Wave 2. Go figure.

Here are my predictions for the Jan/Feb Wave 2 (NASBA) release…

  • BEC Jul/AUG 08 Wave 2 release: 9/15
  • BEC Oct/Nov 08 Wave 2 release: 12/17
  • BEC Jan/Feb 09 Wave 2 prediction: 3/17
  • BEC Jan/Fev 09 Wave 2 actual: 3/18
  • REG Jul/AUG 08 Wave 2 release: 9/16
  • REG Oct/Nov 08 Wave 2 release: 12/18
  • REG Jan/Feb 09 Wave 2 prediction: 3/18
  • REG Jan/Feb 09 Wave 2 actual: 3/24
  • AUD Jul/AUG 08 Wave 2 release: 9/18
  • AUD Oct/Nov 08 Wave 2 release: 12/19
  • AUD Jan/Feb 09 Wave 2 prediction: 3/20
  • AUD Jan/Feb 09 Wave 2 actual: 3/23
  • FAR Jul/AUG 08 Wave 2 release: 9/22
  • FAR Oct/Nov 08 Wave 2 release: 12/22
  • FAR Jan/Feb 09 Wave 2 prediction: 3/23
  • FAR Jan/Feb 09 Wave 2 actual: 3/20

Good luck everyone.

NY REG here. Took the exam 1/5 and didn't get score in the first wave, which is killing me because this is my final exam.

Just want some finality as to whether I can finally put this whole experience (about 13 grueling months for four exams) behind me or to plan out my study schedule once busy season is over.

The wait is killing me because I'm not very confident whether that I passed or failed and the process of checking every morning from now till 3/18 is very frustrating.

Can anyone shed some light here? The nice lady as NASBA told me that they might release scores between today and March 18. Is this likely (ie...keep going thru the same gutcheck on the NASBA site every morning) or is it unlikely and I probably won't get my score till 2nd Wave?

Thanks for letting me vent.

Hey NY REG - Same thing here. Didn't get my score but took it on 1/6. I believe we had new simulations and therefore our scores won't be released until Wave 2. Hang in there. I'm in the same situation as you. I am either a CPA or start losing parts. Good luck to you.

Same situation here. I took REG on 1/5. I physically took the test in NY but my state board is MD. I didn't get my score yet. It is my final exam and the wait is killing me. Good luck to both posters above!

Great job on the prediction, I got my score on the day you said it will be out. Done with CPA, All togather it took 5 months to clear all 4 exams with amazing scores of 82 - audit, 86-FARE, 90-BEC, 94-REG.

I'm in a similar boat, I took REG on 1/12 and I'm frustrated about not getting my score yet. I also took BEC on 2/20, and I think it's ridiculous that I'm going to get that score first. I'm also extremely worried about REG, I feel like my score is going to be borderline. Hopefully, I passed both and I will be done for good.

I would like to make a HUGE complaint about the system. I was scheduled to take FAR 2/26 at 1pm. Well I woke up on 2/25 with a fever of 102.7, I went to the doctor and got antibiotics and other drugs. I thought that I would still try to take FAR on 2/26 because if I didn't take it, I would have to wait until the next window. (2/26 was the latest that I could schedule FAR.) Well on test day 2/26 I woke up and felt like I wanted to die. I tried to call Prometric see if I could get a medical hardship or something, and they told me that I would have to talk to my state. Well I live in Utah and they use NASBA. The lady at NASBA told me that I was just screwed and that I could miss my appointment, but I would have to pay the fees over again to take the exam at a later date. Talk about poor customer service, so dragged myself to the testing center yesterday and took the exam. If I get a 75, it will all be worth it, but if I get less, I am going to be really pi$$ed.

Just finished taking BEC yesterday...I don't really know how to feel after the test. I don't feel like I bombed it, but there were definitely some questions that I was a little confused with and ended up having to guess. Any other comments from people who took BEC before the cut-off this period?

Anonymous 12 years ago

I took the BEC in the last testing window.
I took my BEC and felt so dejected and depressed after the exam that I could not focus on studying for FAR and lost valuable time. When the scores were out I got an 81. So hope for the best be prepared for the worst and keep moving forward.

RE Huge Complaint:
NY here - I took Reg in April and there were environmental factors that qualified me for a free retest and I got to take it in the same window. I don't know if being legitamately sick qualifies. The environmental factors that I experienced were with noise from the adjacent office and no soundproofing. The catch is that you don't get a score on the part you took and you have to file a complaint within 10 days. I knew I wasn't going to pass and it was due to the distractions that I didn't finish in time. I got a 75 on the re-test so I made the right decision. If you think its an avenue you want to pursue, do it right away.

Good luck!

I hope it is the same as the NTS, and not something else that I am unaware of. I worry when they refer to something using different terminology all of a sudden.

I'm still learning as I go along. It seems that each window has a wave that throws a curveball. Wave 1 Oct/Nov window was out of whack. Wave 1 Jan/Feb was vanilla...fell right in with predictions.

Wave 2 Oct/Nov was normal. If BEC doesn't hit IL until Monday (or Tuesday as was indicated to me as a possibility), then my predictions are sunk...BEC will hit NASBA Wed/Thursday...REG Friday/Saturday...I think AUD/FAR will still be the same.

This is all conjecture, though...everything as at the mercy of the AICPA and when they release the scores.

Interesting comment comparing BEC and AUD. I just passed BEC with an 82 but I have not taken AUD yet. AUD is so long at 4.5 hours. Why is this test so darn long? Why is it easier than BEC?

Anonymous 12 years ago

Are Louisiana scores only available on NASBA.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I thought it was easier than BEC because it had less bredth of information (in my opinion). It seems intimidating due to its length, but I suppose it has to be tested thoroughly since auditing is considered to be a major function of public accountants.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I thought 4.5 hours is too much time for AUD. I finished it in 2.5 hours (but I always fly through multiple choice on every test I take, not just the CPA exam). Still, since there aren't calculations the delay is caused more by second guessing yourself than getting an answer.

I think BEC can be harder because the topics are so random and not related to each other forcing you to memorize more information. However, audit was harder for me because I'm better with calculations than theory. I also didn't enjoy trying to decipher the AICPA's questions and the best answers for them.

Anonymous 12 years ago

BEC is out in IL!

Also, re: the post above: AUD is basically just memorization. If you study and do lots of MCQ, you will be fine because a lot of the questions you will see on the exam will be very similar (if not exactly the same) as the ones you studied! They give you 4.5 hours, but I don't know anyone who actually took that long. BEC is a little more difficult (to some) because it involves calculations, and kind of jumps all over the place in terms of material covered.

Anonymous 12 years ago

RE: Above Post. I took the entire 4.5 hours for AUD Nov, '08. The program actually locked me out as I was finishing my last word! (I got an 86).

Thank you all for your excellent responses comparing BEC to AUD.

Actually my next exam is FAR which I am taking on May 30. I am stuyding now for it. I took the Becker for it. Starting on April 15 I will be out of work and have therefore 6 weeks full time to prepare for it. I hope this will be enough time. I know it is the hardest exam by far.

Anonymous 12 years ago

FAR definitely beats all the tests in the amount of material you need to know. 6 full weeks of studying should be enough though. I studied over the summer for about 6 weeks (for 3 of the weeks I had 3 hours of class a day and some homework so I wasn't devoting 100% of my attention to FAR). I got an 86, but I also got really lucky with simulations on fairly basic material compared to what it could have been (something like pensions would have lowered my score for sure). Anyway, point is that you should be fine with 6 weeks of preparation as long as you stick to your study plan.

Anyone have an update on BEC for Texas? Thanks.

KG 12 years ago

Thanks for the assurances on AUD vs. BEC. I think my strengths in these exams have been on the simulations - especially the written communication and research, so not having those on BEC really hurt me I'm guessing. I think I may have been getting over-confident too - I scored a 94 on REG and was feeling like the CPA exam wasn't quite as scary :).

As for VA - it really is insane the sh*tshow they've made of the website. I had someone call me last week asking if I'd had any trouble with the retesting payment option - when I said that I hadn't had to retest because I'd passed the sections I had taken, she sounded so confused. That freaked me out a bit...My records are up to date by any stretch.

(70+%) and the final release contains those exams close to the cut score that are being
reviewed a second time for scoring accuracy.

I guess back to studying REG for me!

IL, CA, VA (Texas ?) all post through their own sites. Some other states send scores via mail only. Most are through NASBA, though.

Anonymous 12 years ago

35 states have some form of online score reporting - either through NASBA or through their own Web site such as IL, CA, VA. For those 15 without online scores, NASBA releases the scores to the State Board who then prints out the diagnostic report and mails it to the candidate. Adding anywhere from 3 - 5 business days to the wait time. Gotta love being from Mississippi when you're a CPA candidate.

Got BEC in Maryland today. Got a 73, so it looks like my laptop will be going with me on vacation this summer. Should have spent more time studying the formulas (Chapters 3 and 5 in Becker); I got to the point where I probably should have pushed it back, but I thought I was strong enough on the other areas to give it a shot. Walked out feeling that I either barely passed or barely failed. It sucks, but a couple of weeks of reviewing and I should be OK for next time. Might try the Yaeger Cram for the next attempt. Studying for FAR for next month, and really don't feel like trying to squeeze in BEC again during the next window. It will have to wait for now.

Matthew Carr 12 years ago

I am waiting for REG in CA as well. My status update line has said (Score Pending) for like 2 weeks now. I wonder if CA posts scores into the late night or early morning, or if they are posted manually during the day while the Board office is open...

I really don't understand why they can't setup a system where you get sent an email when your score has been posted...the email doesn't have to contain the score (in case the reason for not doing it is for security reasons), just a message that lets you know that a score has been posted.

Waiting sucks.....

Anonymous 12 years ago

Should i call the board for my status is not "score pending" but ?CBT Exam Attendance received from NASBA.?

Matthew Carr 12 years ago

Yeah if you took the exam in January and the status line is still not reading "Score Pending" then something is not working right. If you do not get your score by tomorrow morning then I would call the Board during the day and see whats up.

Like I said, for the three that I have taken before this (FAR, BEC, AUD) my status changed to say "Attended x/x/xx (Score Pending)" about 1 to 2 weeks after sitting for the exam.

Congrats to everyone who passed BEC!

If you came up short - it took me 4x to pass it too. I highly recommend the Yaeger BEC cram...I just got an e-mail today from a reader who bought it and passed BEC after failing.

REG

Again - REG isn't out for NASBA until it comes out for IL and then add a day. If REG comes out today during business hours for IL - look for it tomorrow AM. If IL gets REG tonight and they post it Thursday...NASBA will release Friday. This is how this whole thing works...it's reasonably predictable.

With that said - BEC come out a day later than usual (IL e-mailed me and said it would be delayed a day, which I Twittered). My predictions hedged on IL getting BEC on Sunday. Since they got it Monday night, everything got pushed back a day.

I bet REG comes out tomorrow for NASBA (again - this is assuming that it's REG and not AUD that comes out for IL today) and AUD comes Friday for IL and Monday for NASBA. FAR comes out Tuesday.

This is just a "gut feeling".

That plus a dollar and you'd have a dollar.

At least today we aren't going to obsessively log in and out of the website hoping that our score posts. That was the worst part of yesterday...

On the bright side -- maybe this means they are giving a nice fat curve to the REG exam. A LOT of people posted complaints about the "second simulation" so maybe this is the holdup.

Here's to hoping for a few more
76's than there would have been had they not taken the extra time to grade REG.

Hi Jeff,

Which one is next REG or AUD ?

Lets not also forget that they released significantly fewer REG exams than the other three sections in wave 1 for this quarter. Based on this I would say you are right Jeff I just hope they release AUD tomorrow and REG monday (wishful thinking).

Don't be too down on yourself -- you're still predicting 2/4 dates on avg seeing how you went 4/4 in wave 1.

Really?? I thought the CPA exams dont curve. Although the scoring highly depends on the "level of difficulty" of the questions. :)

REG is my last one. I walked out of the testing center not sure how I did as the second and third MCQs had a lot of detailed questions....

Anonymous 12 years ago

I didn't really have a problem with either simulation on REG. That doesn't mean they were easy or even if I got it right, but there wasn't anything about it that made me say to myself "I CAN'T DO THIS!"

I see a lot of people talking about how they had problems with one of the sims and I'm not exactly sure how either one (at least that I took) deviated from the "template" we're so used to seeing.

With Sims, the goal is: give yourself at least 45 minutes/per sim...and try your best on every single question within the tab. Same goes for the written.

I feel like that hardest part with Sims are the lack of time examiners have left to really break each question down and think things fully through. I had that problem with my very first exam (FAR)and I made sure that I didn't lollygag or lose focus during the MC testlets on the following exams.

Your experience with the sims could either mean you knew the information or you had different SIMS on your particular exam.

Pretty sure that we don't all get the same simulations.

Anonymous 12 years ago

I heard a rumor that REG is taking so long because of new materials in the exam. Seeing how many people are still waiting from January, and the unusual release order, it may be true.

But still, they've had over two months to base the scoring. The scores must be really all over the place. Of course, this might not be the case at all and there is no rationale behind what is going on. I am just trying to calm myself down while waiting for my last section to come through. I really thought I was going to get my score today.

AICPA/NASBA can deny all they want that the CPA exam is curved. My first career was education, and I've taken several advanced assessment courses. There is NO way around it: A passing score as consistent as this one is is ALWAYS engineered. It's an insult to us that their scoring explanations are so intentionally vague.

Bev 12 years ago

Oh, and a curve is also the only semi-reasonable explanation for the ridiculous wait. They must ensure that enough people pass this window, and that there aren't too many people who fail. If this were a criterion referenced test, you would already know your score. Then, if they needed to stipulate a certain pass rate, they would announce the minimum passing scores at the end. (It might be 70 for BEC and 80 for AUD one window, then 72 for BEC and 78 for AUD next window.) This whole fiasco is CLASSIC norm-referenced testing. I would bet good money that if you could see everyone's scores, they would form a perfect bell curve each window. I just wish NASBA/AICPA would admit it. It's not a big deal.

You can add transparency to that as well.

Anonymous 12 years ago

So, if you do well on a testlet and subsequently get a harder testlet on the test, doesn't it stand to reason that the program knows the number of MC questions you are getting correct and incorrect as you take the test???? In the case of BEC, why can't you know your score immediately? I'll probably be killed by the AICPA for giving away this tid bit of information.

Bev 12 years ago

No statistical analysis is necessary for a criterion-referenced (non-curved) exam. Your answer is either right or wrong and is worth X points. The mere fact that the number of points any given question is worth is determined by a measure of difficulty is proof positive that the exam is curved, but their curve goes beyond that level to ensure that roughly 40% of candidates pass EACH section EVERY window. Make no mistake...it's NO coincidence.

Hey, I don't fault the AICPA for guaranteeing a limited supply of CPAs. Otherwise, CPAs wouldn't be worth nearly as much in the marketplace. Just please don't insult my intelligence by trying to claim that the exam isn't curved.

we should petition to the NASBA regarding the process of score releasing. Since we can receive NTS or reschedule online, why can't we get a simple notification from the state board saying your score is released, please check ..etc. Just like my bank sending me a message when there is a deposit to the account. NTS is not cheap. we deserve better service than this. Not mentioning Virginia BOA's website!

Anonymous 12 years ago

My suggestion email sent to CA's board...forward to NASBA as well?
----
Hello,

My name is [redacted], and I am currently in the process of studying for my final portion of the CPA examination. I have a suggestion for the CBA's website that, if implemented, would be extremely beneficial to all California applicants.

I suggest that when an applicant's scores have been released, or when other changes have been made to his or her account status, an automated email be sent out informing of this change. As anxious, eager, and nervous applicants such as myself would not be required to constantly log in (often multiple times a day) to see if scores have been released, this update to the website's functionality would greatly alleviate unnecessary traffic to the website and reduce the burden of its servers. From an IT perspective, I'm sure this would be a relatively simple, automated process, and truly worthwhile given the cost-benefit nature of the undertaking.

I understand that this project would require a work on the part of the CBA, but I believe that this would drastically improve an applicant's experience during the difficult process of sitting for these challenging exams and then waiting weeks (or months) for results. If a simple email were to alert applicants that a score has been released or remittance has been created, multitudes of applicants would save a great deal of time and energy.

Thank you in advance for your consideration of my suggestion. I would be happy to further discuss my suggestion in greater detail should you have any questions.

Best regards,

[redacted],

you already took the test, there's not much you can do.

either way, you've already passed or failed. just continue with your life until you're given an opportunity to change the outcome of your future.

when the results come in, that's when you're able to plan your next course of action, but until then you should focus on the other aspects and priorities in your life.

This is the site for Connecticut:
https://nasba.org/nasbaweb/NASBAWeb.nsf/wpes?openform&stateabbrev=CT

Your section ID # was labeled as such on your NTS. Be sure to enter your birthdate in MM/DD/YYYY format with the slashes.

Until your score is available, the white box will display the message "Error: Score not found. Please verify Section ID Number and Date of Birth format and re-submit."

This is normal and will be the message every time you enter the info correctly until your score is posted. Then, the message will change to your name and your score, just like the white boxes on this blog.

it would give you a Magic 8-ball type response in that little white box each time you hit submit.

Person from MS - I am waiting on my 4th - and hopefully final - score and live in MS. The scores were transmitted to our State Board for FAR today. It usually takes 2 business days after they receive the score for it to be mailed out. From then, you can figure 1-2 days for the mail to deliver depending on where you live in the state. I usually have score in hand 4 days after the score is released to the State Board, excluding the weekends. They do not work on Saturdays or Sundays to get our scores out.

Does it matter if you take an exam on the last day of the window ? I took the NY REG on 2/28/09 and I still haven't received my grade. Do you recieve the grade later than others if you take the exam on the last day of the window ? I am just worried b/c I think I read at the beginning of the page that if you receive the grade late your most likely borderline.

Anonymous 12 years ago

It doesn't matter at all when you took the exam. Obviously if you took the exam on 2/28 you might not receive it on 3/1. It is the AICPA... they are slow. It doesn't matter at all when you took it. I took one on 10/1 and didn't get my score until 12/25 and it was an 87 (not borderline). The AICPA is going to do whatever they want with barely any rhyme or reason.

re: "Wave 3"

There isn't a Wave 3, but there is a Wave 2a and it usually means you're borderline. There was a discussion about this a few windows ago and people were debating what it meant if you didn't get your score in Wave 2. This happened to me once (74) and my REG score came out 5 days after Wave 2 was out.

The majority of the people who miss Wave 2 and get their scores a few days later will score in the range of 73-76 or so. There will still be a 90 or two in there, but most people will score 73-76.

For those states that process their own applications and scores, like IL, CA and TX, you look up scores on their websites. The others use NASBA. IL is behind updating this wave due to our network manager being out. AUD was released to NASBA Thursday; IL will get them posted during the day Friday and update the notice.

Just a guess, but I don't think NASBA is going to have scores for Saturday... My reasoning is that they enjoy messing with us so much and keep us waiting forever, so why should they put in the extra effort to give us scores 2 days earlier?

I don't get why it's so hard for them to just give us dates when they release scores. If I knew for certain it was 3/23 I would be able to relax a bit. I'd even be willing to wait a few extra days just to have a certain release date. This whole process is too stressful.

For the person who doesn't have the 2 years of experience nor wants to work in accounting for the time being and has passed all four parts... I called my board with the same question a while back (I had an awful experience with one of the Big 4 and felt the same way!). The good news is that once you pass all four parts of the exam they won't expire just because you don't meet the experience requirement. Basically, if you decide to get your experience 10 years from now, you can then apply for the actual certification. For the meantime you will just have passed the CPA exam, but won't be certified. Hope that helps!

March 20th - is the 1st day of spring for 2009
The first day of spring for 2009 is March 20th, a Friday. I think the first day of spring is on this date for every year..

Addendum to the above answer:

Spring comes in between the 19th to the 23rd of March and at different times. It changes on a yearly basis because the first official day of spring is the (Spring) Vernal EQUINOX. This is when the sun is directly above the equator. It rises due East and sets due West and does not do so on the exact same day every year since the calendar is not exactly 365 precise days every single year. In 2009, spring will arrive on March 20th, as stated above and the sun will be above the equator, crossing to the northern hemisphere at 11:47pm (ish)

I was stretching my arms vertically and accidentally farted , and you could have heard a pen drop, it was so darn loud. It was one of those kind that sort of feels like it cut your butt.

When I was in public I had a female boss who pretty much left me alone and didn't come in my office...so 99% of the time I was "safe" to carpetbomb the place.

Wouldn't you know it ~ 5 seconds after detonation, she comes walking in and pulls up a chair next to me to go over a tax return.

Awkward...

I'm totally the same way...I really think it says a lot about a person when they can laugh at themself (themselves?? -- my brain is numb right now).

My ability to find the humor in just about every situation is probably the reason I have not gone completely loony.

Music also helps...I have recently become completely obsessed with this song (hope it's cool to post this on here Jeff, if not let me know):

I got very lucky in that the smell wasn't as bad as most of mine have been lately. I find myself laughing even at goofy things, even things that you probably heard in elementary school or perhaps never heardat all. For example, the other day I asked this guy something. Not sure if this makes a difference, but he is from Florida and I'm from Louisiana. His answer to my question was "cross between an elephant and a rhino." I said, "what????" He said, "elephino." I had never heard that before, and yes, I know it is as silly as silly gets, but I got a good laugh out of that one.

Would they post a score during the weekend ?

Anonymous 12 years ago

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that Colorado and Georgia and even a few of the Northeastern states (maybe Deleware and Connecticut) are tied into the same NASBA that I'm with (Louisiana). I have confirmed with them a few things. They definitely only update over night via batch style. They do not work overtime. They finally started having a Friday night batch that loads on Saturday morning instead of Monday morning as it used to be. Finally, they are located in Nashville, which I think is Eastern Time Zone.

I do think it's Tuesday...I don't hedge...you can get that by calling NASBA and their "all scores wil be released by mid-April" line.

This Wave the predictions weren't worth the bandwidth they were printed on. I showed my work and how I arrived at it...it happens.

I do think REG will come out on Tuesday because I think REG will roll out Sat/Sunday for CA/IL...NASBA will get to work Monday AM...put it all in the computer...it runs overnight...Tuesday AM release.

I dont know why you would think sharing your score qualifies someone as being a bag-of-douche.

Part of what makes this site so therapeutic for people is the fact that not only do you realize that you are not the only miserable person out there studying for this beast of an exam but you can also share in the joy of your and other people's success.

Colleagues posting their experiences and grades make us all feel like it is possible, no matter what obstacles we have going on. Who is to say taking the test in four consecutive days is more impressive than multitasking a full-time job and family obligations and spreadiing the exam over 6 months? Everyone of us is different, everyone of us has our own obstacles we have to overcome. Let us congratulate those who pass as well as those who persevere even when faced with failing. It takes a lot to dust yourself off and do it again.

There is nothing more impressive to me than what Jeff did.

*what's the difference between a CPA who scored straight 90's and a CPA who barely made it into the "300 club" (aka all 75's)? --> NOTHING*

what's wrong with a state school MBA?

As soon as I posted that I thought someone might take that the wrong way. If I get an MBA...it will be from a state school. The state MBA guy that I was thinking of thinks he went to Harvard and telling him about a CPA score would leave him unimpressed...he thinks he went to Harvard.

I didn't mean to stick my foot in my mouth :)

It is amazing to see how people assume that if you take all 4 parts in a short period of time that you don't have any other obligations. I am a junior accountant and I work more hours than some managers. Yet some of the managers failed. It is funny to see how this one manager even tried to undermine the test by saying that he thought the test was not reflective of anything. Of course, he didn't pass and didn't bother to retake. I took 4 parts in 4 consecutive days because I was pissed at the CPAs who passed many moons ago who bragged about having to take it all in 2 days. I just wanted to show them that I didn't have it easy either. Had I passed all 4, they would have shut up for good but I was stuck with 1. YES there is a lot of arrogance with this CPA thing.

I have my MBA from a state school and I am here to tell you....the workload doesn't compare to the CPA exam. One must be way more determined and disciplined studying for the CPA exam than the MBA.

I took REG on 2/26. It's my last section, and I came out feeling like I didn't pass within a long shot but am still clinging to the hope that I passed by some miracle. I reeeeeeeaaaaaally want to know how the hell I did. I'm eaten up with nervousness. My stomach's a ball of knots. I may vomit onto my keyboard in a moment due to aforementioned ailments coupled with indegestion from the Thai food I forced down my gullet an hour ago. Why, oh why, oh why can't the REG scores for AK just be posted already??????

re: AUD scores...

btw - I do think AUD will be there tomorrow AM for NASBA. Don't hate me if I'm wrong, but if I were waiting on my AUD score - I would wake up tomorrow AM expecting it.

An MBA is still a great accomplishment and far be it from me to bash it when someone has dropped $15k-$40k (or more in some instances...).

Question: If you pass all four exams will you get some kind of notification as to that effect? I threw out my old exam scores (I'm an idiot) during Spring Cleaning and NASBA charges $25 a pop for score reprints. I guess if I have to pay $75 for the reprints, I will. Just trying to think how to recoup the fees spent on the exam with my firm.

Attention JD: I believe each notification from NASBa is cumulative, and the letter lists all the exams you passed up to the time of the letter.

JD from NJ 12 years ago

Thank you Abe, but I don't remember my first 3 notifications to be cumulative. Guess I'll have to watch out for number for. NASBA: Please post NJ REG tomorrow ;)

Abe 12 years ago

If you are waiting for REG, and want to make sure that at least NASBA has your score, and you're not from the last few unluckiers, here's how you can find out. Go to the NASBA website for your state and go to the reexamination registration link. I tried to go a few times and register for my last 2 exams, and I couldn't log in. I called the CPA exam board, and they told me that it is a 'safety' feature. If you are waiting for scores the site won't let you register online for the other exams. The reason is because they are worried that you are sure you flunked the exam you took, and you will reregister, only to find out later, to your great dismay, that you passed. Then is will be a hassle to get your money back. They, therefore, don't let you log in. The point being, that until NASBA receives your score you can't log in. I tried at the end of last week and couldn't log in. I just tried now (Sunday night) and I was able to log in. I assume that means they received my score. So if you want to know if they got your score, try to log in. If you get in, then they have your score.

Abe...What if I took REG and it was my last section and I was able to log in for re-registration? Does it mean NASBA got my score and I failed????

Anonymous 12 years ago

Abe 12 years ago

Attn: Anonymous who took REG as last part. No, I don't think it means that. The system let's you register for parts that you passed too, so there's no reason to think you didn't pass.

another71.com 12 years ago

If you don't have your score for AUD now...your sims are likely being re-graded and you should have your score within 5 days or so...and per Joanne @ IL...these candidates are borderline (72-77).

That doesn't make you feel very good, but I thought you would want to know instead of wondering.

I passed the last part of the exams- REG. Called up the VA BOA and she gave me the score over the phone. Took it on 2/28 and AUD 1/27 ( passed with 77)

I have been studying for the CPA exams for over than 1 year. Working full time in a big-4 ( which you may know the hours are very long). Sometimes I fell asleep while studying at night after a long day.

Except for BEC, I didn't pass the other 3 parts on the first try so the experience has been very hard to me.

Thank you Jeff for sharing your experience. and Good luck to everyone on the board who are still taking the exams. Don't give up.
