24-07-2015

Students from the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) have achieved an impressive set of results in this year’s CIPFA Professional Qualification (PQ).

The overall pass rate increased from 75% in December 2014 to 77% in June 2015 as students continued to demonstrate their ability in core technical subjects such as Financial Reporting and Management Accounting. 

CIPFA’s Executive Director for Learning and Membership Adrian Pulham said:

“Our students represent the future of the profession and I am delighted that they have achieved another set of outstanding exam results. 

“CIPFA’s qualification remains the bedrock for all those who wish to take up a career in public financial management and the results prove our PQ continues to put them in the best position to achieve this goal.”
