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

Hey hey, it’s May. Just in case you forgot or are still stuck in an endless, nightmarish loop in which passing days are both rushing by and dragging on forever at the same time. What’s up with that, anyway? It feels like every time I look up, another month has passed me by. Is it the Rona or is this just what getting older is? Oh well, moving on…

We’re down yet another CPA exam score release, leaving just two more for the first half of 2021.

Go ahead and mark another one off the calendar.

Score Release: Exam sections taken January 1 – June 30, 2021

If you take your exam on/before: Your target score release date is:
January 23 February 9
February 15 February 23
March 10 March 18
March 31 April 9
April 23 May 11
May 16 May 25
June 8 June 16
June 30 July 13


You’ll note that the benevolent overlords of the CPA exam are continuing their streak of on-time or early CPA exam score releases, a feat which continues to serve as a tiny beacon of hope that although the world may still be in turmoil, at least someone somewhere is able to keep everything moving smoothly. It’s not much but it’s something.

As the world slowly but surely returns to normal it’s worth pointing out that Prometric has “resumed testing in more than 90 percent of our global test centers, at either full or limited occupancy, based on local and governmental mandates” according to their website. You may encounter difficulties in securing your ideal dates/locations as the system normalizes, so plan accordingly and be prepared to change your plan if you’re not able to get the date(s) you want. After the last 14 months, we’re all experts in adapting to unforeseen circumstances so I’m sure you’ll be fine.

Oh and in case anyone needs it, here’s a helpful video from NASBA explaining a bit more about CPA exam scores and what it means for you, the candidate, after you receive them.

Congratulations to the 75 and up club and for everyone else, get your ass back on that horse and try again. You’ve got this.
