Study support helping ACCA pass rates
18 July 2016
The ACCA believes that the study support it now offers its PQs is finally paying off, with small increases in the pass rates.
The June results show improvements in a number of papers. The P5 pass rate jumped from 33% in March to 38% this time around. June sitters had been ‘confused’ as many believed the examiner had been switched. The questions seemed uncomplicated and even ‘decent’. The pass rates in both F8 and F9 were also much healthier this June. PQs had told us they were generally ‘happy’ with F8 and felt F9 was ‘not a bad paper’.
There was, however a drop in the F7 pass rate, from 51% to 47%.
ACCA’s director of Learning, Mary Bishop, said: “we believe that increasingly more students are using the study support materials we have introduced to help them prepare and succeed at these exams.”
Some 140,642 students entered the June exams, with 198,144 papers sat. The session saw 6,128 students globally complete their final exams.
