Every CPA Exam candidate knows that the overall pass rates for the CPA Exam isn’t staggeringly high. In fact, for each section, the cumulative pass rate is normally just below 50%. What that tells us is that less than half of all candidates pass all sections of the Exam on their first try.
It can be easy to let these statistics overwhelm candidates and bring them down. It can even stop some people from wanting to become a CPA. But the way we see it, these pass rates can actually be used as positive reinforcement about the CPA Exam.
