UP excels in the SAICA January 2015 ITC

Posted on March 27, 2015

The Chartered Accountancy students of the University of Pretoria have once again delivered an exceptional performance in the January 2015 Initial Test of Competence (ITC) of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA).

Two of the top ten candidates identified after writing the ITC, hailed from UP. Byron Forsberg occupied the first position out of 2 480 candidates who attempted the exam and Katrin Erb occupied the fifth position – both brilliant achievements!

UP achieved a joint first position under the four residential universities that contributed more than 200 candidates to the exam, with an overall pass rate of 92%. UP also achieved a pass rate of 92% for first-time ITC writers, as 184 of our 201 first-time ITC candidates passed the exam.  In the case of our Thuthuka candidates, they achieved a brilliant 94% pass rate for first-time writers.

Congratulations to all our students and their dedicated lecturers!
