Just over 5,000 ICAEW advanced level students sat 8,147 exams in August (that’s 1.6 papers per students). The pass rates for all candidates was: Case Study 76.7%; Corporate Reporting 85.1%; and Strategic Business Management 87.6%.
The results, the first since March, follow a ‘small number of students’ resitting the Corporate Reporting exams following technical problems.
The pass rate for those sitting Corporate Reporting on its own was 67%, with 33% (153) of candidates having to resit next time.
Some 654 candidates opted to sit all three final papers, and 64% of these passed all three, with another 28% passing two out of three. There were 12 students who failed all three.
ICAEW’s executive director, learning and professional development, Mark Protherough, said: “These were the first exams we offered with remote invigilation and we are grateful for students’ patience during these unprecedented times. Their ability to study for and sit exams, in challenging circumstances showed real determination and resilience.”
