Results are in for the Uniform CPA Exam.

Compared to the first quarter of last year, the 2009 passing rates were about the same in BEC and FAR, but higher in AUD and REG:

They are:

AUD: 47.61 % vs. 44.66 % in 2008

BEC: 46.23 % vs. 46.94 %

FAR: 45.54% vs. 45.95 %

REG: 47.96% vs. 45.66 %

Historically, first-quarter passing rates are the lowest of all quarters. I’ve heard that AUD is supposed to be the easiest and FAR the most difficult, but I’m not an accountant.

Any feedback on this year’s exam?
