Nov 10, 2017

Chartered Accountants Ireland published the CAP2 October 2017 re-sit exam results this morning. Overall the results are very good.

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

  • 70% of students achieved a pass in all papers sat with a further 16% achieving a credit (i.e. passing one or more of papers sat).  This compares to 56% and 22% in 2016.  The number of students failing all subjects sat fell from 22% in 2016 to 14% in 2017;
  • Paper pass rates: The weighted average results were up in the 2017 re-sit exam. On an annualised basis the weighted average pass rate for all papers was up marginally from 89% in 2016 to 92% this year. On an annualised pass rate per paper basis all subjects showed an increase in performance year on year;
  • The flexible route candidates have continued to perform 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.
