The CPA Exam is pass/fail – you either hit the mark or you don’t. But have no fear - you don’t have to be a genius to pass the CPA Exam, but you do have to achieve this score (or higher) to pass!

WHAT IS A PASSING SCORE ON THE CPA EXAM?
What is a passing score?
Let's see, a passing score is 75 and above. Woohoo! 75 and above, you're a CPA.
What's a failing score? 74 and below. What's it mean? I came this close to being a CPA.Thanks for coming out, we have a nice consolation prize.
Now in college, if you got a 75, what does a 75 feel like? Like you're not doing very well. Like “I might not be getting a job.” Like “I'm an average student."
That's what C in CPA stands for. Right, C, average.
So realize that it’s not an IQ test, you don't have to be a genius, but you need a little bit of a lot of information. It is like a lake an inch deep, and a mile wide.
That's why there's so much material to cover, but we want to make sure, you feel comfortable with it, to get you through the exam.
Figure about, as we said here, 75 and above is passing. That's going to take a fair amount of time to prepare for, just to accomplish that goal, as well.
