The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) has released the results of its  August 2020 ACA Advanced Level exams,  the first of its exams to be remotely invigilated.

In total, 5,009 students sat 8,147 exams in August, and achieved the following pass rates:

·         Case Study: 76.7%

·         Corporate Reporting: 85.1%

·         Strategic Business Management: 87.6%

As well as being the first ACA Advanced Level session where remote invigilation was offered, and the first exam session to take place since March. The June ACA Professional Level exam sitting was cancelled, and the July sitting postponed, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

ICAEW executive director, learning and professional development, Mark Protherough said: “Congratulations to everyone who passed their Advanced Level exams in August and especially well done to the recipients of our subject orders of merit.

 “These were the first exams we offered with remote invigilation and we are grateful for students’ patience during these unprecedented times. Their ability to study for and sit exams, in challenging circumstances showed real determination and resilience.”
