Got back my first CPA exam "Reporting and Professional Practice" (RPP) last evening at 6.50pm. I achieved a Distinction! Extremely unexpected, unbelievable, pleased and in unbridled joy! I thought I would only secure a Pass, 'cos all of us did not have the time to check our answers, and I really didn't have confidence in some of the MCQs which were kinda tricky.. Furthermore, the CPA course is a self-study one which we really couldn't predict what questions would come out.. I'm very, very relieved! This grade gave me the motivation to continue to work hard, not just on the course but also in my work. Kathy was also happy for me.. Thanked Themin via email yesterday too! He just came back from Xiamen.. =)
Thanks to Cindy who taught me the other way of checking, as the official website was down. I also did not receive the sms on the notification of our results (till now). Had it not been Cindy's help, I would definitely still be worried.. In fact, I started to get nervous / worried on my results when the umpteen attempts logging in proved unsuccessful. Called sis to ask if she could help me try and anxiously waited for the sms to arrive until I didn't notice a car heading towards my direction when I was about to cross the road.. What a close shave! Hee..
Currently pondering if I should take Corporate Governance Accountability (CGA) and one other elective next sem? Even though I can only get the CPA licence in Jun 2010, but at least I can complete the studying part in Dec 2009.. Or should I just concentrate solely on CGA?
Actually not just on the grade itself, I was also happy 'cos my cousin's friend has returned me part of the $3,200 which I have lent him. It's the first time I lent so much to someone whom I am not related to, to assit his family to tide through their tough period.. Pretty satisfied with my kind act.. but also hope his friend can return the remaining soon.. I really hope his family stays strong and happy always..
Oh yes, my colleague - Liang Zhang has given me the address of the blog his wife has created. It contained posts of their little gal and baby boy. Here's the link: -
