This should be bumped. 

Every window there are dozens of people who worry about their score releases, thinking they are on the boarder line, or that something is messed up or wrong.  People wonder why they haven't received their score in December, when they took it in October, when others have received it in November.  I don't know how your guys state does it, but Illinois provides updates on their website to let you know what is going on with the scores.  

First off.  They do not hold the boarderline scores.  You could be one of the last people to receive your FARE score, and receive a 95.  It doesn't matter when you get it.  Typically it works like this.  The first month of the two month window generally sees anywhere from 55 percent, to 90 percent of their scores released during that window.  The rest are held for "quality procedures", by a random process and you will not see your scores until the second window release.  You have no reason to worry if you are receiving your score later than others. 

Here is an Illinois update for today, Dec. 18th 2007, that explains that they have received 81 percent of the Far scores, and 57 percent of the reg.  Yesterday they only had received 54 percent of the Far.  It is all luck of the draw when you receive your scores.

If you were to check this link tomorrow, it would probably be updated with more reg scores, and a couple of Aud scores. 

So quit worrying that you took your exam in October, and you don't know why others got their scores and not you.  I wish I could show you an official release from last month, but they keep getting overwritten every time there is a new release.  Last month, this link provided the actual percentages that were randomly pulled from the first window and wouldn't see their scores released to sometimes after the second window, (that being right around now).  I'm not sure if the other states have similar update pages, but if they do, I am willing to bet the percentages are similar.

why have they not received any audit scores?  That is cool that they do that.  TX state board does need to learn from Illinois.

BEC: 85
FAR: 86
REG: 88
AUD: 81
