Results from the ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) examinations in December 2011 show that there continues to be a strong demand for a professional accountancy qualification in times of economic uncertainty. 1032 Welsh students sat their latest round of exams with 68 students passing their final exams and are well on the way to becoming full members.
Ben Cottam, head of ACCA Cymru/ Wales said: 'I want to congratulate every student who passed their exams. The ACCA community in Wales is growing every year and it’s fantastic to see that a further 68 students have now completed their exams. I look forward to welcoming them as full members once they have completed their professional experience.
'ACCA’s exams are designed to test students’ skills and knowledge and passing them demonstrates the financial knowledge and professional skills which are much in demand in organisations, especially during challenging economic conditions'.
In total 1032 students sat 1653 papers.
