AUD Score: I’m Not a Quitter

Ana is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

So what do you do when you took an exam for the sixth time in two years, and finally get so close to passing … a 74?

I mean really???

I realize more and more the power of the mind that God has given to us…so many times I have let myself be defeated, be mad at everything and everyone except myself for not getting where I want to be in life, but this time around I know I could have pushed through just a little more.

On the other side of things, the past 5 times when I took the Audit exam, I did not get past a 68 and it felt like I will never obtain my license because I could not pass it. But thanks to the family of I did not give up because I don’t want to be a quitter, I want to finish what I started.

Considering that I am going first time through a real busy season at my new job, long hours and weekends, I am planning on starting studying on full swing on April 16 (this is a company holiday at my job). I am thankful that this is the only one exam that I have to pass, so I should try harder in the next round.

To all those out there that passed … good job to you all! To all of us who are still battling, don’t give up! Keep pushing! The reward is far more worth it than giving up!

I'd post all of my scores but there isn't enough room in the box! But the truth is, the only number that counts is your license number! You've got the right attitude to beat the bully!

Auditing was the beast for me too. It took me 6 rounds to finally beat it up. You are almost there. You will definitely get it next time.

Ana - you will get there, just keep fighting! I feel your pain with the 74 as I've certainly had my share of those. You can do this and remember "Failure is an event, not a person" ~Zig Ziglar
