Pass rates in the six papers in the first set of Professional Stage examinations were an average of 4% better compared with the marks for the previous year, according to the institute.
Mark Spofforth, chairman of the institute’s Education and Training Directorate said: ‘The new syllabus has been designed to ensure that ICAEW students receive training which maintains relevance to the evolving nature of our profession. We are really proud of our successful students and their tutors, who rose to the challenge of refocused exam papers and new courses to earn these excellent results.’
Meanwhile students completing the old TC1 exams will have just one more chance in June to re-sit before transferring to the new papers.
