Communication of results
Once the results are released, you will see “Pass” or “Fail” for Day 1 and for Days 2 and 3 in your file. You have questions about your results? To better understand your performance at the different levels assessed at the CFE, see the Information for candidates: Interpretation of your results document.
The Competency Referenced Evaluation Methodology [PowerPoint] presentation is a copy of the Board of Examiners presentation on the CFE. It highlights the important examination design elements and describes the assessment model, particularly the differences in the testing objectives for each of the three days of the examination. This document will help you better understand the evaluation process of the examination.
What if you fail?
Refer to the Retest policy page to find out what steps to take depending on your situation. The section also includes the procedure to follow if you decide to request a review of your examination results and/or a performance analysis.
2019 CFE pass rates
CPA Canada has released annual examination pass rates for the 2019 CFE. The CFE pass rate for all 3 days averages the performance of candidates who wrote the May and September CFEs for the first time. The cumulative pass rate is the percentage of candidates, from a single cohort, who successfully completed the CFE after the examination was offered 3 times in a row.
