The Association of Taxation Technicians, the oldest and largest body concerned solely with tax compliance, announced today the results of its examination taken by 1,179 candidates in November 2020. The Association reports that a high standard of performance was achieved by many candidates.
The Association President, Jeremy Coker, commenting upon the results said:
“I am delighted to congratulate all the successful candidates from the November sitting of our exams especially in this extraordinary time in both their professional and personal lives. In total 2,354 papers were sat and 1,862 passes were achieved with 110 distinctions awarded for outstanding performance.
It was the first time that our whole complement of papers was sat remotely and, while that posed particular challenges, I would like to commend mostly the candidates, but also employers and our examination team who displayed remarkable adaptability, resourcefulness and resilience to make this sitting a success.
Our modular system means that candidates can study at their own pace, whether they are working towards full membership or simply wishing to obtain one or more Certificates of Competency in their specialist area. This flexibility continues to be popular.
Even though we did have an online admission ceremony late last year, I look forward to meeting as many new members as possible at one of our admission ceremonies when it becomes safe to hold these again.”
