Has anyone created a fancy algorithm for projecting likely actual exam scores based on Becker final exam performance?

I am being half-sarcastic, but also half-hopeful that someone can provide some information on whether the 2 scores correlate at all and how so.

I've read that Becker exam scores are typically much lower (and the exams more difficult) than the real exam.

If it makes a difference, I'm referring to FAR.

From what I've read on the board, +15 is a safe estimate.

I kind of have done something like that just to interpret Becker's final test better.

AUD7577769822GoGators2014
I just take my actual MCQ correct/total MCQ possible and multiply it by 60 (FAR, REG, AUD, 85 for BEC) and then i do the same with the sims only multiply it by 40 or 15 depending on the test.

Add both the numbers and you get your overall score.

Now its a very crude way and it assumes every point is worth the same, which is not true but at least i can kind of interpret the results compared to just looking at percentages.

I would say Becker's exams are harder then the actual exam but you always have to be careful about the sims cuz they can easily blow you away from a passing score.

Take it however you want it tho, my first attempts on beckers final tests were about 10ish points below what i actually got on the test.

Co-workers who have passed the CPA using Becker say they usually scored anything between 10-20 pts higher on the actual exam than on Becker.
AUD848082919mimi86
AUD78868270-12Ntw6817
I'd say 10 pts give or take a few is a safe general assumption.

+10 is usually a safe bet for most, although I've found my scores have been right on point w/ the practice exams.

I got a 90 on my first Becker practice exam and an 87 on my second exam, so I was feeling pretty confident going in, but my actual exam was incredibly harder than the practice exams.

The first testlet was very easy (similar to a Becker testlet).
BEC57N/A577922Disco Stu
BEC727573.59117.5GoGators2014
I apparently did well on it, because my second testlet was extremely difficult with questions on topics I had never even seen covered in Becker.
BEC658474.5838.5GriffinCPA
BEC928186.5914.5JamesBJames
I'm guessing I didn't do as well on that one, because my third testlet was in between the difficulty of the first and second testlets.

The simulation testlet was almost impossible…again, with questions completely out of left field.

I studied 3.5 months for it (while finishing my undergrad) and felt like I knew the book backwards and forwards and could apply what I had learned.

The scores on my practice exams were also encouraging.I just feel disheartened that I studied so much for the exam, but there's a possibility I didn't pass because of the simulations.

Makes me wonder if the exam was really a “faithful representation” of my knowledge, and if it was, then maybe Becker wasn't teaching enough of the right stuff.

I was scoring around 78-80% on progress tests and scored 66, 64, and a 73 on the mock exams with mid to high 60% scores on the mcq sections.

I agree with Lam2848 that the Becker mock exams are harder than the actual exam and should be used more to find out what topics need to be brushed up on.
