ACCA exam take-up remains unchanged

THE NUMBER OF students taking the ACCA examinations in June was unchanged from last year, the institute has announced.

Figures showed that 196,000 students took the exam this year, the same as last year, with more than 6,000 passing their final exams. A further 2,978 students completed the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) exams.

There were high pass rates in the tax and law fundamentals papers but results for advanced financial management, advanced performance management and advanced audit and assurance were “disappointing”, the institute said.

Clare Minchington, ACCA executive director (learning and products), said:
“We congratulate those who have succeeded in their exams and we are delighted to see that more than 6,000 have completed their examinations, having been able to demonstrate the financial knowledge and professional skills which are needed by organisations in challenging economic conditions.

“We look forward to welcoming them to ACCA membership on completion of their practical experience requirements. We also congratulate the students who have completed their CAT exams at this session.
