ACA advanced level results are…

Some 5,741 students sat the November 2023 Advanced Level examinations, with 9,417 exams ‘attempted’.

The drop in the Strategic Business Management pass rate to 83.9% might be a worry for some students and tutors alike. It was 88.5% last August and 87.3% a year ago. Both the Case Study and Corporate Reporting pass rates are also down on the August results (see results below).

In all 837 students opted to sit all three advanced papers. Of these 73.2% passed them all, with another 16% picking up at least two out of the three.

Just under 500 students sat just the Corporate Reporting exam, and the pass rate here was a miserly 50.2%. The pass rate for those just sitting Strategic Business Management was only slightly better at 54.8%.

Students from RSM picked up two of the three ‘order of merit’ prizes for the November sitting – James Blackwell for the case study and Louise Fitzgerald for the Strategic Business Management (joint first).
