Hello y’all. This is going to be longggg.
Soooo, I took the BEC exam today, 9/28/2020. Let me tell you something, that exam was mind-blowing hard.
I used Gleim for my CPA review, studied for 2 months,and I made a 77 in my mock exam, please know that I graded myself well in the written communication section.
I revised the whole book and I felt okay for the exam.
I got to the exam center on time, check and sign-in was pretty okay.
Testlet 1 – Hot tears came to my eyes, I almost raised my hands to confirm if this was the real CPA BEC exam . I had like 11 questions flagged in this testlet. I told myself, surely it cannot get worse. Boy, was I wrong…
Testlet 2 – Questions were more conceptual and I really had no idea what was going on. I had almost all questions flagged. I was like even if somw are pre-test questions, it will not be the whole 31 questions right. These questions were from hell, guys.
Testlet 3- I said since the MCQ were nearly impossible, I will get easier simulations, right. WRONG!!!!! So wrong… No correlations at all for this exam. The first 2 Sims were crazy hard, so much scrolling, lots of exhibits and I was still trying to save time for the Written parts. I have never seen simulations like these ones. Who sets these questions, who is out to get meeeee???
I took my break and came back ready for the last two testlets.
Testlet 4 – I think they decided to go easy on me for this Testlet. I was able to get through the simulations on time with an hour and 15 minutes left for the Written communication.
Testlet 5 – Written Communication, 3 serious questions. At this point, I was like girl, do your best. Follow the guidelines. You have studied and tried for the exam.
I finished with thirty seconds on the timer. Guess we will see what October 9 brings. I am hopeful to God to pass this exam because studying for this exam was really difficult for me.
Motivation and advice – To anyone taking the CPA exam, I am so so proud of you. You are a rock-star and a winner. God is on your side.
For studying- Keep pushing, please stay determined, do not give up.
This is our year.
