CIPFA publishes December 2011 Professional Qualification exam results

09-02-2012

Students from the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) have achieved a strong set of results in the December 2011 CIPFA Professional Qualification exams.

The overall pass rate of 71% is in line with the June 2011 results. Also the pass rate improved in 5 out of 13 modules and for most other modules was very much in line with the previous sitting’s performance. Of particular note, was the strong improvement in the pass rate for the Financial Accounting module, together with another encouraging increase in the pass rate for the Governance and Public Policy module and another historically strong Finance and Management Case Study pass rate of 68%.

CIPFA Education and Membership Director, Adrian Pulham said:

“Many congratulations to these students for their hard work. It is clear that the CIPFA qualification offers an unprecedented opportunity for those working in public finance to advance their careers in today’s challenging fiscal climate.”
