The EA Exam used to be 4 Parts!

This letter was shared by a user in a public study group, (I redacted the name and any private information). I thought it would be interesting for current candidates to see how the SEE exam was broken into 4 parts in the past. You can also see why Part 2 is now widely considered to be the hardest part, because Part 2 and 3 of the old SEE exam were combined into one section.

New EA Exam Procedure Announcement

posted May 7, 10:15 am (631 days ago), permalink

Attention EA exam candidates! The IRS has announced that exam-takers who take their EA exams now will NOT receive their test scores immediately upon completion of the examination. They will get their test scores e-mailed to them later,  (the IRS is using exam results to "analyze" candidate responses).

However, this is only temporary--beginning August 2, 2021, exam-takers will receive their exam scores immediately after completing their exams. See official details on the Prometric website:
