Top score in ACCA Advanced Taxation paper

A Birmingham-based accountancy student has scored the highest mark in the
world in an ACCA exam.

Rebecca Paterson beat 3,661 others, scoring the joint top score for the
ACCA’s Advanced Taxation peper.

Paterson is a senior analyst in accounting separation at Ofwat, and says
juggling a full-time job and returning to study five years after leaving
university was a challenge.
