    Took the test yesterday, I guessed at least 10 MCQs on the test, all the 3 testlets were moderate/difficult, I didn’t know what I was writing in the 3 WC but I was writing…
    Based on your successful experience, So I still have a chance of passing in my case?

    I could not tell how I did whatsoever, and passed. Best not to scrutinize it now.


    I took BEC yesterday too. No idea how I did. I agree on the writing part…. I have no idea if any of it was right, but I just wrote whatever to try and make sound good and in a good format.

    I passed with a 79. Honestly was shocked I did that well. My 1st testlet was decent, 2nd was a bit harder, flagged my guesses on 3rd and had guessed on 10-12 Qs. I did crush the 3 WCs though. I allotted a full 45 mins for them with 15 mins each and I had full, well organized responses (lol I thought). But then again it's only 15% of your score soo… I'd say don't lose hope. But more importantly, don't dwell on the past. This is a marathon, not a sprint and your focus needs to stay on the part you're currently studying for now.

    Bec used to be the most failed exam before they added the writing portion. The writing porting only helps doesn't hurt.

    Yes you have a good chance if you only guessed 10 questions out of 72.


    You absolutely have a good chance of passing. I knew walking out that I got around 6 questions wrong (after checking my notes), guessed on 3 or 4 questions, and I scored weaker on two sections (economic concepts and IT) on my score report and comparable overall on multiple choice. The writing portion seems like free points, I totally blew the answer to the second problem and still scored stronger on that part of the exam. I think there's a good chance that you passed.

    I passed with an 86 and walked out feeling good. I honestly thought the exam was the easiest one I've taken but I also was familiar with the WC topics and the MC seemed fairly straight forward.

    Everyone struggles with different things though. I absolutely think you have a good chance of passing. Those 10 that you guessed on could have have 7 pretest questions mixed in for all you know..

    I absolutely had no idea what BS I had pulled out of my *** for the WC but when I was finished, I just thought, does this even make sense? NOPE, but do I have a better answer to these? NOPE. Okay I guess I'm done.

    I walked out of BEC feeling like **** because compared to REG and FAR Sims, at least I don't need to remember everything to actually get the answer, but with BEC, I had to remember and form a coherent response.

    We all don't exactly know how the exam is graded because there was no way in **** that I got 75% correct on all the exams I have took and passed. Just remember that all said is done and just pray (I'm not religious, but still) that everything would be all right.

    You can look at a glass and say that is half empty, but rather, it would be best to say its half full.

    Never say never.

    Absolutely! BEC was my last exam. Walked out thinking I had failed it… scored an 88.

    hang in there! When I walked out of my BEC retake I wanted to punch somebody I was so upset. My questions all seemed ludicrous- my third testlett was so simple if felt like they were asking me to add 1+1, and I had ZERO clue on my writing topics, like seriously zero- one I didn't even understand what they wanted me to write on and the other two were on esoteric FAR subject matter. I was BEYOND shocked when I got my passing score- I didn't think there was any way possible I had passed… especially compared to the first time I took it and i walked out thinking “I NAILED THAT”- and failed…. you never know. So yes you have a shot…

    And they ask me why I drink

    BEC 71, 82
    AUD 75
    REG 75
    FAR 61, 69, 83

    and they ask me why I drink...

    FAR- 61-next time I'll ask for lube instead of a calculator
    REG-75- Never been so happy to see such a low grade
    BEC- 8/11
    AUD- 9/2


    Lol, CPA exam grading is weird. I took my BEC yesterday and it made me depressed. So different from my study material and so tricky – not straight forward. Hope I will be lucky as you guys.


    I just passed BEC with a 79. My first testlet was difficult and took me awhile. But I was lucky and was graced with a pretty easy 2nd testlet and not so difficult SIMS. My writing was mostly guesswork but if you use the right buzzwords and proofread your work, you should be good.
