CAP1 May 2018 exam results released

Jul 13, 2018

Chartered Accountants Ireland published the CAP1 May 2018 exam results this morning.  Overall the results are very good and are in line with the good performances achieved in May 2017.  

In reviewing the results Ian Browne (Head of Assessment & Syllabus) noted:

  • 81% of students achieved a pass in all papers sat with a further 14% achieving a credit (i.e. passing one or more of papers sat).  This compares to 76% and 17% in 2017.  The number of students failing all subjects sat has fallen to 5% for the May 2018 exam sitting (7% for May 2017);
  • Paper pass rates:  The pass rates on individual papers are broadly in line with the good performances of May 2017. The weighted average pass rate across all papers (1st attempts only) was 89% which was 87% in 2017;
  • The flexible route candidates have continued to perform well;
  • The distance education offerings have also performed well. 


Mr Browne congratulated all students on their achievement and he thanked all the training firms, lecturers, examiners and staff for their contribution towards this excellent result.
