The CPA exam results are in for the 2013 Auburn University Master of Accountancy (MAc) class, and they deserve a round of applause!
Every year, accounting students across the country take the four-section CPA Exam. This notoriously difficult exam posts average national pass rates ranging from 48 to 57 percent across first-time and repeat CPA candidates. First-time exam candidates from Auburn’s MAc class achieved a pass rate of 95 percent on three or more sections and a 74 percent pass rate on all four sections. Their pass rate on individual sections – Auditing and Attestation (AUD), Business Environment and Concepts (BEC), Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR) and Regulation (REG) – ranged from 88 to 95 percent.
The Class of 2013’s impressive achievement has found its place amongst the success of prior MAc graduates. Since the Auburn program implemented the Becker CPA review course in 2005, a tradition of excellence on the CPA exam has perpetuated. Aside from the coaching students receive in the Becker review course, the Auburn MAc Program’s outstanding record can be accredited to the exceptional faculty who provide students with the academic tools necessary to succeed on the Exam.
The support the Auburn MAc students receive has allowed them to once again land themselves a spot among the top percentile in the national passing average, and it does not look like this high-achievement trend will be ending anytime soon.
Again, congratulations to the Auburn MAc Class of 2013 on their outstanding performance on the CPA exam.
