VIA NASBA: Score Release Timeline for the July/August (Q3) and October/November (Q4) testing windows
CPA Examination Candidate:
Effective with the October/November 2011 testing window, scores will be reported with more predictability and frequency than the pre-CBT-e score release schedule. The timetable below is for the second half of 2012 to help candidates plan their testing schedule.
Scores for the Uniform CPA Exam will be released by NASBA to state boards of accountancy based upon the target score release dates listed in the table below. The timetable applies to candidates who have tested in both domestic and international testing locations.
|Day in Testing Window*||Target Release Date Timeline||Target Q3'12 Score Release||Target Q4'12 Score Release|
|Day 1 – 20||11 business days following day 20 of the testing window||August 6||November 5|
|Day 21 – 45||6 business days following day 45 of the testing window||August 22||November 26|
|Day 46 – Close of window||6 business days following the close of the testing window||September 10||December 7|
|After Close of Window||6 business days after receiving all scoring data for the testing window||TBD||TBD|
* Day that the test results are received by the AICPA
Note: "Day in Testing Window" refers to the date AICPA receives the test result, notthe test date. Additionally, some candidates who take the BEC section might receive their scores approximately one week following the target release date due to additional analysis that might be required for the written communication tasks. Scores are generally released during regular business hours.
We encourage candidates to visit the Psychometrics and Scoring page on the Exams website for information about score release and the scoring process, including the CPA Exam Score Release Timeline FAQs.
