Will there be instant grading?

Question: A large portion of the CPA exam is electronically graded, especially now that the BEC is the only section with written responses. Will NASBA or the state boards provide some immediate feedback by indicating to candidates the number of correct responses on the multiple-choice sections or task-based simulations upon completion?

Answer: No, NASBA, and the state boards do not have any immediate plans to provide immediate feedback or instant grading for any section of the CPA exam. NASBA reports the exam grades to the individual state boards twice per testing window. They release the first wave about one week before testing ends and the second wave about two weeks after the last day of testing.
