Do you need to take more papers?
18 July 2018
The ACCA and ICAEW professional exams pass rates were both released in the middle of July.
They have very different exams and pass rates, but the stats show that ICAEW candidates who sit two and even three papers at the sitting do considerably better than those who sit just one!
The June pass rate of one-paper ICAEW professional level sitters is 67.1%. Yet 76% of students who sat three papers passed them all, and another 13.7% passed two out of three. Just 3.5% of sitters left the exam hall with no passes.
While the current average ACCA PQ sits 1.3 papers per sitting, the same ICAEW PQ is sitting 1.8 papers.
So what’s the answer? Are ICAEW working harder, or are they just more in the zone?
