Frequently asked questions about CPA Exam score releases:
Q: What is the difference between an AICPA and a NASBA score release?
A: The AICPA has to release scores for a particular section of the Exam before anything else can happen. Once that happens, then scores can start being released. Everything depends on the AICPA. The way that it works is that the AICPA releases scores to the states. Some states are independent – such as California, Illinois, Virginia, Texas, etc and release through their own state website. The majority of states, however, release their scores through NASBA. It's important to remember that the AICPA controls score releases and until they release scores – all is quiet.
Q: I didn't get my score and Wave 2 seems to be over – where is my score?
A: Your score is in what I called “Wave 2a” – which is usually approx. 5 business days after Wave 2 is released via NASBA for a particular section. This isn't official, but “Wave 2a” scores tend to be between 72 and 78.
