2012 UFE Coverage

For those that are interested, here’s some articles that have popped up already covering UFE results.

I’ll put more up as I find them.

Media Releases

You failed the UFE. F**k!

Today we have a guest post from Kayla Switzer’s Blog: I Failed the UFE! Now What? You can also get in touch through her web site at www.KaylaSwitzer.com

You failed the UFE. F**k! By now it is probably settling in, but it doesn’t feel good. It feels horrible. You are devastated. Failing the UFE sucks!

I know as well as anyone how that feels. When I failed I felt like I would never be able to show my face at work again. I hated seeing people! Failing the UFE made my normally fun, upbeat self into a bedraggled poor-me self. It wasn’t pretty. But it does get better, I promise.

But right now you feel awful.

Remember that you are not alone. There are so many people who have failed the UFE before, so search them out and use them as a resource. If you’re anything like me your head is spinning with questions right now! Ask questions so you can put your mind at ease. I didn’t want to talk to anyone at this time though. I didn’t care if they had failed the UFE or not, I just didn’t want to talk about it. I wasn’t ready to talk until January, so if it takes you some time to feel ready that’s okay. Don’t rush yourself, there’s still lots of time.

And if email is better, feel free to shoot me an email. I’m always ready to answer questions. And sometimes it’s easier to ask over email, right? Email me through my website at www.KaylaSwitzer.com. I’m always available.

2012 UFE Results Breakdown

Congratulations again to all those successful today. Here’s a quick breakdown of the 2012 UFE results. I did this quickly so it may have some errors (feel free to point them out) but I think it’s accurate.

Total Successful Candidates in 2012: 3077 – vs. 2,857 in 2011 (8% increase) CICA Press Release

Successful in CASB (West): 1,007 (33%)
Successful in Ontario: 1,279 (42%)
Successful in Quebec: 642 (21%)
Successful in Atlantic Canada: 149 (5%) (I think this includes Bermuda too!)

Congraulations to the 59 candidates which made the honour roll this year! Full List Here

NATIONAL Gold Medallist: JOSHUA HUFF, KPMG LLP, Waterloo – Wilfrid Laurier University, BBA, 2011

Western Canada Gold Medallists: PAULA OVERGUARD, PwC LLP, Calgary AND IVAN WONG, KPMG LLP, Vancouver (There was a tie!)

Quebec Gold Medallist: JONATHAN DUBUC, Chiasson Gauvreau Inc.

Atlantic Canada Gold Medallist: LAUREN K. MCQUAID, BDO Canada LLP.

The Big Four accounting firms top the honour roll again this year.

PwC: 14 candidates (24%)
KPMG: 11 candidates (18%)
E&Y: 10 candidates (17%)
Deloitte: 7 candidates (12%)
Other: 17 candidates (29%)

I’ve only dug up school information for Ontario right now. University of Toronto and Waterloo had a good showing this year with 6 and 5 candidates from those schools making the honour roll this year.

Below you’ll find my attempt at a rather pathetic infographic that only an accountant without any art talent could make. You should share this masterpiece. Feel free to make fun!

I am pleased to offer my congratulations to each of the 1007 CASB students who were successful on the 2012 UFE.

Congratulations again!

Good Luck! – UFE Results 2012 begin tomorrow morning

Hopefully most nervous UFE 2012 writers are finding ways to cope with the last night of waiting for their results tonight. Two years ago I was in your shoes and it’s good to see (via some of the tweets anyway) that many people are still spending it in a way that will make them not feel so good tomorrow. Have fun!

Results will be out tomorrow morning starting at 7am PST / 10am EST for the writers in the WEST of Canada. Ontario results will be officially released at 12pm EST.

I’ll be back tomorrow to cover as much as I can about the results so keep checking back.

#UFE2012 on Twitter to highlight all the good stuff going on tonight and tomorrow.

Good luck, my friends!

Congratulations to Quebec students UFE 2012 – Félicitations aux étudiants du Québec – L'EFU DE 2012

As many know, Quebec students are the first to see their individual results at 7pm while the rest of us have to endure another night.

My warm congratulations to students in Quebec receiving positive UFE results tonight. Félicitations! You’ve conquered a world class exam and you deserve to celebrate so I hope you’ll let loose and enjoy tonight! Well earned.

To those receiving not so good results, I’m very sorry. This is a tough exam and this happens for many. Take the weekend to forget about the UFE, after the past year or longer of a UFE-centric life you need a break. Myself and Kayla will be providing more advice in the coming weeks so check back once you’re ready to decide your next moves.

2012 UFE Results this Friday (ou jeudi)

I hope it’s not coming as a surprise but UFE results are this Friday. If you are from Québec you can access your personal results as early as Thursday evening.

I’ll do my best to provide a good rundown of the results on Friday when they’re released. In the meantime, I’ll leave this post at the top in case people want to discuss anything in the comments. According to our super scientific poll, 60% of respondents feel “Awful” about the 2012 UFE. So there you have it!

Reminder, here’s where you can find the results:

Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario (ICAO) – 2012 UFE Results Page – Results are available a 12 pm (noon) EST. If you’ve been through this process before it’s the exact same thing, just refresh until the names pop up. This has been late a few times in the past so keep trying every now and then until you got it. Hopefully your employer is kind enough to just let you know as soon as their allowed. I believe they get the results about 30 minutes prior to the official release.

Ordre des CPA du Québec – 2012 UFE Results Info – Results are available as of 7 pm on November 29th, 2012 for individual candidates. Everything else comes the next day. You’ll need to login through your system using your client and candidate number to access the results.

CA School of Business (CASB) (Western Canada) – 2012 UFE Results Info – Here’s everything you need to know about receiving your results on November 30th. The fun starts 7am PST!

Atlantic School of Chartered Accountancy (ASCA) (Eastern Canada) – Here is the only information I’ve been able to find so far. I assume this link will be updated.

 

Hang in there, hope the dreams aren’t all UFE related.
