Score review is a service to candidates offering additional assurance that operational quality controls in the scoring process were complete and the scores are accurate. Score review is NOT a re-grading of the examination,or an opportunity to find additional points, review content, or to have alternate responses considered. It is simply an independent verification of a candidate’s Uniform CPA Examination score.
The verification for the multiple choice questions and the task-based simulations involves making certain that the approved answer key was used and that it was applied correctly. Verification for the written communication tasks involves making certain that each of the submitted responses was scored.
Because all scores undergo several quality control checks before they are reported, the likelihood of a score change following score review is exceedingly small, or less than 1% of all requested score reviews since the inception of the computer-based test. However, the score review option is available to candidates who would like to have their scores checked one more time.
