  • All US CPA exam data files received following the cutoff dates will be deleted. 
  •  If you are taking the CPA BEC section, you will receive the scores approximately seven days after the target date to take the CPA BEC section. It’s because of the additional analysis required for the BEC written language tasks.

Steps to find out your results: 

  • Log in to the candidate portal on the NASBA website to see your score, and proceed with the below information.
  • The AICPA uses your Examination ID to score your CPA Exam. 
  • The scores are then sent for approval to Boards of Accountancy before the official release of the candidates. The process will take about three days before the result is officially declared. 
  • When the NASBA receives the scores, they are then processed compared to the names of the applicants. 
  • You will see an ‘eye’ icon once your score is approved.  
  • Click the icon to open the score notice, download it and then print it out  
  • Don’t let failure stop you from trying again. Keep trying persistently. 

What’s the reason we can’t get the US CPA exam results right after the exam? 

First, the AICPA receives exam data files from Prometric, the testing centers which run this CPA Exam. Then, the AICPA forwards the exam results to NASBA to deliver the scores to the state boards of accounting.  

Factors for the Score Release 

You probably already know that all four parts of the CPA Exam are computerized. So why do you need to be waiting so long to receive the results of your exam? 

  • It will take about a few weeks to receive your CPA Exam score because the AICPA examines your answers through several quality assurance reviews to ensure scoring accuracy. The AICPA recognizes the high level of importance, diligence, and a keen eye on accuracy in the CPA Exam scoring process. 
  • There is a system in place to verify the accuracy of scores. AICPA also has processes in place to confirm the accuracy of scores in specific instances. The BEC Written communications (WCs), the computer scoring program, grades your answers. However, in some cases, the system of CPA human graders will score responses too. 
  • When your BEC score is near passing, the human graders will automatically revise the quality of your WC responses. If multiple graders are required to evaluate your response, the final grade will consist of all scores given by the human graders. 
  • Additionally, the exam grading system isn’t simple to calculate. Humans have to monitor the process of converting to an arbitrary grade, which is 99-99. So, it’s natural that the process will take an extended period to be completed. 

You will be given a score on each section of the US CPA Exam. It is a range from 0 to 99.
