The Uniform CPA Examination (Exam) protects the public interest by helping to ensure that only qualified individuals become licensed as U.S. Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). Individuals seeking to qualify as CPAs are required to pass the Exam.
Despite popular misconception, NASBA does not develop the content of the CPA Exam, nor is it responsible for scoring the Exam. We do not receive all scores at the same time and some jurisdictions do not release scores via our website. Follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook to receive score updates. In addition, NASBA’s CPA Exam Candidates Forum is a Facebook Group that provides a platform for CPA Exam candidates to connect, share advice, tips and tricks, ask questions and have fun while they prepare to become CPAs.
