Congratulations to the Successful September 2021 CFE Writers

Updated: Feb 4

CPA Atlantic School of Business wishes to pass along a heartful congratulations to all successful September 2021 CFE writers in our region. Well done!

The 2021 Common Final Examination (CFE) was written on September 13-15, 2021. The results were released on December 3, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. AST.


The list of successful candidates can be found here: Successful September 2021 CFE Writers in the Atlantic Region and Bermuda


On behalf of CPA Atlantic School of Business, we would like to extend congratulations to all of you for achieving this point in your professional careers.

What’s next?


Access the Marks Portal

  • Access your CFE feedback forms through the candidate marks portal. Candidates logging in for the first time should use their seven-digit CPA candidate ID number (which begins with a “4”) as the username and password. Candidates will be prompted to select a password for portal access going forward.

Profiling successful CFE writers

  • For those candidates who are successful on the 2021 CPA Common Final Examination, it is customary that their names, employers, and municipality of employment are used in communications in support of the profession, either by the CPA Atlantic School and/or by the CPA provincial/Bermuda body with whom you are registered (e.g. CPA New Brunswick). An example of this might be a list of successful CFE writers on a CPA provincial website that includes information such as “Jane Johnson, ABC Corporation, Moncton, NB”.

Practical Experience

  • In addition to successfully completing the PEP modules and the CFE, candidates need to complete a term of relevant practical experience of 30 months, including development of required competencies, to be eligible for membership with a provincial CPA body.

  • If you have not done so already, please take the time to access the Practical Experience Reporting Tool (PERT) and start reporting your practical experience.

  • CPA practical experience is administered by CPA Atlantic School of Business; please contact Lorraine Prenevost, CPA, CMA – Senior Manager, Practical Experience at practicalexperience@cpaatlantic.ca or 1.902.429.4494, if you require assistance.

Application for Membership

  • Once candidates have successfully completed all PEP modules, three days of the CFE and the practical-experience requirements, and are candidates in good standing with CPA Atlantic School (i.e. dues paid up to date) they may become eligible to be forwarded to their provincial/Bermudian accounting body for consideration for membership. Each province/Bermuda will be provided confirmation for each candidate once all requirements have been met.

Updating your profile information

  • To ensure timely communications and ensure that your preferences and expectations are well met, we are asking candidates to please review personal details in their CPA profiles such as preferred email address for correspondence, current employer, municipality of employment, telephone number, and preferred language of correspondence.

  • Profile updates can be done quickly and easily at CPA Atlantic School Registration Portal (https://myservices.cpaatlantic.ca/). If you require assistance with this, please let us know by contacting our registration staff at registrations@cpaatlantic.ca.

For unsuccessful writers


To those who were unsuccessful on the September 2021 CFE, you have a few options. There are a variety of resources you can use through CPA Atlantic School to help you when considering rewriting the CFE in 2022. Information on rewriting, remarking, and Performance Analysis Reports (PAR) can be found below:

  • Candidates that receive an unsuccessful result on Day 1, Days 2 & 3, or all three days will have the option to appeal their result.

  • A Performance Analysis Report (PAR) will be available for candidates who receive an unsuccessful result.

  • Please contact Wenjing Zhang-Farrell at wzhangfarrell@cpaatlantic.ca to request an appeal or PAR.

  • Deadline to apply for an appeal or PAR is Monday, December 20, 2021 at 4PM Atlantic.

  • Candidates that receive an unsuccessful result on Day 1, Days 2 & 3, or all three days are encouraged to reach out to Nick Westcott, Director, Program Delivery & Registrar at nwestcott@cpaatlantic.ca and book an advising meeting to discuss options for rewriting the CFE.

  • Candidates are strongly encouraged to wait a full year before re-attempting the CFE in order – so as to be able to benefit from a Performance Analysis Report and have appropriate study time for a successful rewrite. However, it is allowable to register for the May 2022 CFE and those wishing to do so should register via CPA Atlantic School Registration Portal (https://myservices.cpaatlantic.ca/) by March 4, 2022.

On behalf of CPA Atlantic School of Business, our sincere best wishes to you in your journey to becoming a CPA!
