ACCA December 2021 pass rates have landed

ACCA December 2021 pass rates have been announced. APM is the paper with the lowest pass rate among the Options – just 32%, and AFM has the highest pass rate at 41%. The two Essential paper pass rates are holding ‘nice and steady’ at 51% for SBL and 48% for SBR.

For Applied Knowledge AA has the lowest pass rate at 38%, and next comes PM at 43%. That 38% for AA is the lowest pass rate in that paper since March 2020. The same is true of PM.

Just under 120,000 students entered the December sitting, taking 145,692 papers. Of these just under 10,000 PQs took their exams via remote invigilation. Some 4,288 PQs have now completed their final exams to become ACCA Affiliates.

Commenting on the results, Alan Hatfield, executive director – content, quality and innovation said: ‘These are a solid set of results to round off the 2021 exam sessions. Last year, and as the pandemic continued, we issued over 476,600 results in total. And over this time, our students have shown immense resilience and determination to continue with their journey to become ACCA members.

He reminded students that pass rates were 20% better for students who use the ACCA exam Practice Platform. So, that’s a no brainer!
