Thirty-three (33) students obtained their Post Graduate Diploma in Accounting at UFH in 2014. Twenty-nine (29) of these passed the South African Instituted of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) Initial Test of Competence (ITC) examination written in January this year. This is an 88% pass rate which is above the national average of 82% for candidates attempting this exam for the first time. In 2014 UFH had twenty-five (25) candidates writing the ITC with a pass rate of 77%. This increase of over 30% in the number of candidates is very positive for UFH - the size of our class is growing whilst maintaining very high standards as seen in the increased pass rate.
