ACCA exam sitters are still struggling to pass the performance management and audit papers – at both the Applied Skills and Options levels!
The June pass rates saw drops (when compared March) in both the PM and AA pass rates, to 42% and 39% respectively.
The Strategic essential paper pass rates also dipped this time around. In March the SBL pass rate was 50% and SBR was a healthy 52%. In June SBL fell to 46% and SBR 44%. Students had picked out the SBR paper as the hardest paper in the Open Tuition post-exam poll. PQs told us of the ‘bizarre’ nature of some questions, and others found it a very timed-pressured test.
Both APM and AAA options had a summer pass rate of 32%. That means two out of three sitters failed these papers.
Just over 100,000 ACCA PQ sat 128,000 June exams, with a total of 3,838 students completing their final exams to become ACCA affiliates.
In all some 21,000 June sitters sat their exam remotely, and ACCA’s Alan Hatfield said: “I want to reassure students that we’ll continue to help them progress by offering remote invigilated exams where needed.”.
He also reminded students that those who use the ACCA exam Practice Platform achieve pass rates that “are up to 20% better for students who use this resource, compared to those who do not”.
ACCA June 2021 exam pass rates: BT 88%; FA 74%; MA 68%; LW 86%; TX 50%; FR 51%; PM 42% FM 53%; AA 39%; SBL 46%; SBR 44%; AAA 32%; AFM 39%; APM 32%; ATX 41%.
