CPA Exam Candidates Who Tested on October 1 Have Finally Gotten Their Scores

This, friends, is the end of an era.

If you don’t know, there was a bit of a mix-up last month and by “mix-up” I mean the AICPA screwed October 1 test takers by changing the dates on the day before which meant instead of getting their scores on the 11th like they thought, they would now have to wait until the next score release which is — today! Well, yesterday technically. The target score release date was today and if this experience has taught future CPAs anything it’s to hope for the worst and plan for the…wait, that’s not it. The point is things can change at any moment and even the benevolent overlords of the CPA exam sometimes make mistakes so be prepared for curve balls. Had today’s score release been delayed I think we would have had full scale rioting at Prometric centers across the country so let’s just be glad that didn’t happen.

Some October 1 test takers did not get good news. Imagine, they could have scheduled a retake three weeks ago had they gotten their score on October 11 like they thought they were going to. And it’s a 74 on top of it? Ouch. Condolences, friend.

To everyone who passed, congrats! And to those who didn’t: that’s alright, it happens. Get back on the horse and pass that exam  if for no other reason than to rub it in the AICPA’s face. Nothing says “I hate you” like being eternally beholden to an organization’s code of ethics.

P.S. there are two CPA exam score releases left for the year. No idea where 2022 went but it appears it is gone. Might want to squeeze in one last exam before 2023 if you can.
