CPA Exam Pass Rates by year for the last 16 years (2006-2022).


The CPA Exam Pass Rate data shows some interesting 5-year Trends:

  • REG Pass Rates increased with the “scary” TCJA changes, and that trend continued with the CARES Act.
  • AUD Pass Rates increased 7 points on average, and then tanked again.
  • BEC Pass Rates are way up with mid-60s pass rates (everyone could study during lockdowns).
  • FAR Pass Rates jumped from the 40s to the 50s and then back to the 40s.
