May 2013 CPA Licensure Examination Results (Passers/Top Notchers/School Performances)

It’s May 2013 again and everyone is excited on the results of the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) Licensure Examination (also called CPA Board Examination) in the Philippines.   Bookmark this page so that you won’t be the last to know.


For the examinees, they might now have mixed emotions which include nervousness, fear, anxiety, doubt (?) and most of all, excitement.  Exactly the same feeling I felt when I took the board exam last October 2007 and maybe the same shared feeling with other examinees who took the exam.  Well, glad we made it! For the new CPAs, congratulations!  For those who weren’t able to make it, keep trying and give your best, devote sufficient time for it and keep praying.  Who knows, one of these days, you’ll finally make it.
