30-01-2013

Students from the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) have achieved another strong set of results in the December 2012 CIPFA Professional Qualification examinations.

This was the second sitting of the new syllabus at the Professional Certificate and Professional Diploma stages and the first sitting of the final Strategic stage of the new syllabus.

It is very pleasing to see that the overall pass rate increased to 72% compared to 70% in the June 2012 sitting. Notable improvements include Public Sector Financial Reporting which increased from a pass rate of 51% to 71% and Financial Reporting which increased from 69% to 75%.

CIPFA Education and Membership Director, Adrian Pulham said:

“I would like to offer my congratulations to all the students for their hard work. This is the second set of results from our new Professional Qualification syllabus and it is encouraging that overall results are improving. It is clear that the qualification continues to offer those working in public finance a brilliant opportunity to advance their careers.”
