Congratulations to all of those successful writers of the September 2019 Common Final Examination (CFE)!
Congratulations to the successful CFE writers in Alberta!
To see the names of the successful candidates, click here.
A list of successful candidates by candidate number is available on the CPA Western School of Business website.
The results are the outcome of months of comprehensive work by the profession’s independent Board of Examiners (BOE), who are responsible for marking the examination. The BOE consulted with multiple experts, including a psychologist, two psychometricians, and past BOE chairs. In addition, a third psychometrician was retained through Borden Ladner Gervais LLP as part of a third-party review. A summary of the Board of Examiners’ marking process is available here and findings from the third-party review is available here.
Note that, given the circumstances surrounding the September 2019 CFE, the profession has determined that a failing mark on the September 2019 exam will not count as an attempt, and that any student who did not pass will be eligible for a free re-write of the CFE exam, along with access to the CPA Professional Education Program’s Capstone 2 preparatory module at no charge.
Detailed information about future opportunities for rewrites, and other remedial options if required, including reviews and requests for re-marking, is available online at the CPA Western School of Business website, here.
