NASBA Takes Back (Some) Passing CPA Exam Scores for March
Update: For those who didn't catch the timing of this post, a clever CPA exam candidate thought it would be funny to April Fool this NASBA announcement. Don't worry, your March scores are safe.
In case you didn't hear, procrastinating CPA exam candidates got an extra few weeks to squeeze in a section of the exam last month because of February's brutal storms across the East Coast. In the interest of equality, NASBA extended test dates through March's usual blackout to candidates across the country.
But they have taken those scores back.
JDA has gotten from a reliable source within the Big 87654 that test-takers outside of the blizzard-affected areas have actually gotten their scores taken away and thrown out. Yes, that means all of you who put it off until the very last minute and rescheduled for the March extension are pretty much screwed unless you also got snowed in on top of it. Yes, those of you who paid for and passed the exam in March.
If your score has been thrown out by the protectors of the precious CPA exam, do let me know in the comments and I'll be happy to write as many angry letters as it takes on your behalf.
Shame on you, NASBA, shame shame. What do you have to say for yourself? And will you be refunding candidates' exam fees? I hope so, I really don't want to have to come down on you like the Mother Hen of CPAs. Seriously.
