Right now in Canada, about 8,000 would-be CPAs are sitting around twiddling their 10-key fingers not knowing A) if they passed September’s Common Final Examination, and B) if their scores will even count after a long legal review into the disaster of an exam that plagued thousands across the country. From testing center Internet outages […]
Another day, another CPA exam score release that has arrived exactly when NASBA promised it would. Isn’t that nice? Really gives me hope that they’re going to do an amazing job when they’re ready to unveil continuous testing, which as far as we know is still on track to make its debut sometime next year. […]
Now that the little goblins have come and gone and the Christmas advertisements have begun, it’s official: the final CPA exam testing quarter of the year is upon us. Technically it started in October but as we all know, a testing quarter doesn’t really start until the first score release. As is tradition, candidates have […]
Dear procrastinators, I have to tell you something. There are a mere six CPA exam score releases left between now and 2020. The third quarter is halfway done and then comes the high-traffic holiday season when everyone who blew this off all year starts dogpiling in to get as much finished as they can before […]
Well would you look at that! Not only is the year flying by, but NASBA is on top of things and starting the quarter off right by releasing scores several days ahead of schedule. Not bad, not bad. Well, bad if you don’t pass but whatever, at least you’ll have the whole weekend to drown […]
Cruising right along through the second quarter, here we are at the second score release. Two down, two to go. Now that we know continuous testing is on the menu for the CPA exam in the hopefully near future, it will be interesting to see how score releases are treated by the community. I guess […]
Yes, it’s CPA exam score release season, again. So, if you took a CPA exam from October 1 through December 10, 2017, then consider this post a safe place. Waiting for your #CPAExam score(s)? The score release is expected to happen on December 19 and you can check for scores here: https://t.co/aNB5vqOXsK pic.twitter.com/yI9s89qMOK — NASBA […]
Pass or fail, we still got you. Hey look, NASBA released CPA exam scores today: On August 17, 2017, NASBA received and processed the following scores from the @AICPA pic.twitter.com/xpt49bKJXN — NASBA (@NASBA) August 17, 2017 Twitter is filled with the normal joy and strife of any score release date — mostly because the bumrush […]
A tip came in earlier today noting that the 2017 CPA exam score release schedule looks a bit different than in recent years past: I'm not sure if it has been like this before but they aren't releasing CPA exam scores nearly as often this year. Looks like in quarters 2-4 they are just saying […]
Forgive the tardiness on this, we owed it to you yesterday. On November 4, 2015 NASBA received and processed the following scores from the AIPCA: pic.twitter.com/FtnQdqngiw — NASBA (@NASBA) November 4, 2015 I think it's important for every to remember that the anxiety people have waiting for their scores is half the fun: Is @nasba […]
Today is the third release of CPA exam scores for Q3, which means the days and hours leading up to the flood of scores have made NASBA's Twitter account an interesting thing to watch. @NASBA There's got to be a better way for you to handle this. — Kemi Kemi (@Kemi202) September 9, 2015 Debating […]
For you lunatics who thought taking a section of the CPA exam during busy season was a good idea, you will soon know if it was. The AICPA released to following #CPAExam scores to NASBA on March 10: 5076 AUD, 4604 BEC, 4591 FAR, and 4489 REG. — NASBA (@NASBA) March 10, 2015 The AICPA […]
For a third score release in a row, NASBA is locking CPA exam candidates out of its website so you people don't break the Internet with your obsessive refreshing. I suppose at this point we can assume NASBA will be doing this for the foreseeable future. Candidates, we've temporarily disabled the online score page for […]
Last week, we entertained ourselves watching the NASBA countdown clock tick away the minutes ahead of today's planned score release. Watching the @NASBA countdown clock for no reason. It's actually kind of zen. — Going Concern (@going_concern) November 21, 2014 It would be absolutely hilarious if one of these days, NASBA shuts down their website […]
NASBA's attempt to keep anxious CPA exam candidates from blowing up their website ahead of a score release must have gone swimmingly last score release, as they are planning to do it again for the next one. We will be temporarily disabling the online score page leading up to the target release date. #CPAExam scores […]
Last week, we learned that NASBA had all but shut down their website to prevent eager score-checkers from blowing up the site like they did last CPA exam score release. This was a first for NASBA and we'd be lying if we said we didn't secretly hope they'd somehow screw this up and end up […]
I'm really not sure if this is hilarious or cruel, probably a nice mix of both. I mean, it's NASBA after all. As we reported last week, NASBA decided to shut down access to scores completely until the target score release date of 11/4, which is tomorrow. Can you all handle waiting just one more […]
Remember that time you people broke NASBA's website with your obsessive refreshing and then proceeded to yell at NASBA about this? Good times. Well, NASBA is attempting to outsmart you now and will not let you blow up the website looking for scores until scores are ready: We will be temporarily disabling the online score […]
Friendly reminder: scores aren’t actually due to be released until tomorrow.
So, apparently the NASBA account is only allowed to tweet about CPA exam score releases and nothing else. Yesterday, they experienced a bit of a Twitter snafu, reposting an article about best accounting colleges no less than eleventy billion times. They attempted to apologize but in doing so, only pissed off anxious CPA exam candidates […]
We've only heard from one person today that CPA exam scores are out, which means either a bunch of you failed or they are slowly trickling out. NASBA scores are up on the online portal! OH JOY! The actual target release date is tomorrow so if you are in one of those pesky states that […]
The actual target date isn't until Monday but apparently scores are trickling out. And we mean trickling out. Let the bitching commence! Oh wait, it has. NASBA you are KILLING me slowly. #releasemyscorealready — Kristen (@KristenMarie_79) August 1, 2014 @sophiemountainn gi came up with a drinking game – every time the nasba site goes down […]
And look at that, right on time! [email protected] has released the following #CPAExam scores for the April/May testing window: 7065 AUD, 4537 BEC, 5890 FAR and 6585 REG. — NASBA (@NASBA) June 9, 2014 As always, you are welcome to share your victories (or failures) in the comment section amongst yourselves.
California CPA exam candidates now have the secret to taking their lives back around score release time, and you can thank the CA BoA: Exam Score Hack- scores automatically load into your client account once a day -usually between 5am-7am. Good luck! — CA Board Accountancy (@CBANews) May 22, 2014 Now you know! It […]
OH JOY! Plan your entire existence accordingly: The AICPA also has a few helpful reminders for anyone tempted to freak out about not receiving their score by the target date (with big yellow letters just to make sure you pay attention): KEEP IN MIND: All dates and times are based on Eastern Standard Time zone. […]
Today is the last scheduled release date for scores in the first window of 2013, so if you managed to crash and burn again, you have the rest of March to curse the sky and/or plot your comeback: #AICPA released the following scores to #NASBA for the Jan/Feb 2013 testing window: 5675 AUD, 3196 BEC, 4837 FAR […]
It's one theory! This time of year certainly lends itself to organizations allowing their employees to have a Friday afternoon off so that they may drink heavily and gripe about the year that was: NASBA offices will be closing today at 11:30 am CST. We will reopen Monday, December 17 at 8 am CST — […]
This just in: Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy there will be a short delay in the release of the Uniform CPA Examination scores. Scores from test results that were received day 1 – 20 by the AICPA were scheduled to be released on Nov. 5. The release of these scores will be delayed […]
Here's your daily dose of CPA exam candidate freak out: Hi Going Concern, I just called the CPA Exam Services to ask why my BEC score was not released on September 11th. I was told my exam is still being graded and I should expect my score within one week. Although I understand that BEC […]
You've waited and waited and waited and now that the moment of truth is finally here. #AICPA released the following scores to #NASBA from the Jul/Aug 2012 testing window: 6905 AUD, 5201 BEC, 6989 FAR, and 7030 REG. #cpaexam — NASBA (@NASBA) September 11, 2012 Learning your CPA exam score can evoke strong feelings that […]
Today's CPA exam freak out comes courtesy the tip box. Just a reminder to those wanting to freak out via said tip box, please include an email address so we can write you back for more details – in this case, those "more details" would have been the actual email from NASBA. Derp: The NASBA […]
You've worked hard all summer, given up exotic vacations, BBQs, boozing on patios and everything else awesome about summer just for this moment. Will the sweet taste of victory pass your lips or will you be sent crawling back to your Peter Olinto lectures with your head hanging low? The AICPA released the following scores […]
If 2012 is the first year you've had the pleasure of taking the CPA exam, you probably have no idea just how torturous waiting for your scores used to be. You'd either refresh on your state board's website incessantly for several weeks or stalk the CPA exam forums hoping some almost-accurate psychic would know the […]
I should know better than to bring up this touchy subject but I'm only going there due to this email suggestion: I'm amazed that the AICPA kept its promise and released scores on time. Perhaps that could make for good convo on GC. You could also talk about the new anticipated timeline for score releases. […]
BEC scores have been released so it won’t be long until you’re doing a happy dance or sobbing in a bathroom stall.
Either way, it’s your God-given right to react with euphoria or complete rage. Since most places of employment aren’t too keen on streaking through the cube farms or kicking over chairs, we invite you to let loose in the comments. We’ll update this post as the scores are released.
UPDATE: If you took the exam at an international location, NASBA just tweeted out a friendly reminder that you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
UPDATE 2: Yesterday afternoon while I was out playing, NASBA announced they got a boatload of AUD scores. Hopefully this doesn’t ruin your weekend.
UPDATE 3: More BEC scores were released yesterday. At 5 pm on a Friday, no less.
Commence to partying (or reapplying with your state board/CPAES)!
It’s been two days since they released FAR so at this rate, all scores should be out by Tuesday. Who wants to bet unforeseen circumstances delay BEC a tad longer? Just a guess.
Anyhoo, you’ve waited weeks (or months) for ’em, here they are.
All 32 CPAES states should have scores posted online within 24 hours (though preliminary candidate feedback is that this process is faster than it used to be). The only CPAES states which may take 24-48 hours to release online are Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska & Puerto Rico. Check with your state board of accountancy if you are in a non-CPAES state.
NASBA has announced via Twitter that more scores have been released for the final window of the year. Bad news is that it takes 24 – 48 hours for them to post. Our recommendation would be to jump over to NASBA and spend the next 24 hours refreshing the page until it posts. Or chew your fingernails until they bleed, whatever works for you.
If you end up with an early Christmaskuh gift, please share. If you got coal, also share before you go into the corner sobbing.
We got a request to start a thread on the CPA exam results being totally MIA. The last thread seemed to indicate that results were slow to come out but here we are a month later and some of you took your exam(s) back in July.
So what the hell, NASBA? People can’t sleep at night. Get with the program!
Discuss your anxiety in the comments or if you’ve got your scores, just tell us you got between 75 and 79. Anything higher and you might has well be one of those Elijah Watts rocket-scientists.
