CIPFA results are ‘in’

15 February 2019

It was the usual mixed bag of results for December CIPFA exam sitters, when the results could finally be accessed. It appears CIPFA’s systems struggled with the sheer number students trying to get their results online in mid-January.

Management Accounting remained the ‘best’ paper with a pass rate of 86%, with Corporate Governance & Law not far behind with 83.8%.

At the bottom end of the scale is Company Financial Reporting. This papers mark seems to be on the slide, and CIPFA will need to put in more resources to help students here. The 41% this time around for CFR does not compare well to the June 2017 pass rate of 82.3%!

The only other paper hovering around the 50% pass rate is Public Service Financial Reporting (52.15). The last real hic-cup on this paper was June 2016, when the success rate fell to 40.5%.

* @cipfaNorth East wants you to #getinvolved with its social media feed. It has vacancies for CIPFA members and students to volunteer for social media, website maintenance and photography at events. Whether you are a novice or experienced volunteer’s it would love to hear from you.
