This. Is. Big.  The moment we’ve all been waiting for is almost here: the first round of 2017 CPA Exam scores are expected to be released this week.   It’s been several years since we  first heard about the CPA Exam’s major overhaul. All the buzz it stirred among the accounting community lasted until its actual launch in April of this year.

Then, we had to wait.  


In fact, candidates have had to wait 10 weeks since the close of the Quarter 2 (Q2) testing window.

That’s up to 20 weeks of waiting for those that took their exam at the beginning of Q2 to find out if they passed or not.  This is exceptionally longer than the normal cadence for scores to be released, which is usually about 2.5 weeks after the close of testing.

But now the release is finally upon us and the excitement is high.  

From what we’ve gathered in our day-to-day interaction with CPA candidates, emotions are ranging from optimistic confidence to stomach-in-knots anxiousness.  But there’s a lot of hope.  Based on the recent CPA Exam results survey we conducted, we were thrilled to find that our students are actually feeling good about their performance on the new CPA Exam.  

And throughout all of this, we can tell you that the vibe at Roger CPA Review right now is pride.  

We do everything we can to make this process as enjoyable as possible, but at the end of the day, it’s still hard work that requires incredible discipline and sacrifice of our students’ time, energy, and brain power.  No matter what the results are, we’re so proud of the effort our students have put into their studies, and so honored to be their partner on this challenging, yet exciting journey.  


So as the clock ticks down to the big reveal, and you’re filled with anticipation, know that we are here, right by your side with matched fervor.  

We will continue to be here celebrating your achievement if the news is good (there will be confetti), and we’ll also be your sounding board, cheerleader, and guide if the results are disappointing.  Because we’re passionate about your success—it’s what motivates us to get up and go to work each morning.  

So, to all of you out there who will be receiving scores this week, congratulations.  Congratulations for committing yourself to reaching your goals, and for all of your hard work.  Our fingers are crossed that you’re going to hit that 75 or higher! 


And, if you don’t make the grade, there is no need to be discouraged.  

We have some great tips in the Roadmap to Success that can help you bounce back and succeed the next time around! It can be a painful process, but the more you analyze why you didn’t pass, the better you can prepare yourself for success next time.
