Here’s Your Open Thread For the Fifth CPA Exam Score Release of 2021

We’re seven and a half months away from Christmas but that didn’t stop the benevolent overlords of the CPA exam from gifting candidates with an early score release this week. Scores were due today according to the AICPA score release schedule.

CPA exam scores have been on time or early for so many consecutive score releases that it isn’t worth counting how many it’s been since a delay anymore. A lot, okay?

There are three score releases remaining for this half of the year, which gives you plenty of time to make a few earnest attempts to pass at least one section before the peak of summer. Maybe by then we’ll all be allowed outside to play (universally, I mean) which might be all the motivation you need to sit for the exam now while the Rona is still lurking around so you’re free

You also have some time left before the second half of the year to familiarize yourself with the AICPA’s CPA Exam Blueprints [PDF]. The latest Blueprints were released last October and any changes within are effective (meaning, can be tested) on July 1, 2021. You can also check with whatever review course you’re using and see if they have any updates on these changes.

So that’s it. Hope everyone got good news yesterday and if not, get back on that horse.
