Exam pass rates

For each unit, the number of candidates who achieved a pass grade during the year is divided by the number who sat during the year and this number is expressed as a percentage. The pass rates include all sittings for a unit for the year and include (where applicable), UK sittings, international sittings, in-company sittings.  In order to provide the most accurate picture of pass rates and avoid the skewing of data by single events or short-term trends, pass rates are produced and updated annually. It should be noted that for some specialist units, where few candidates sit, pass rates may be skewed and should be interpreted with caution.The new pass rates replace the oldest set, so that pass rates from the last two years are always shown.

 ​​Mixed Assessment pass rates

For each unit, where there is sufficient data, the number of candidates who achieved a pass in the unit (i.e. a pass in both the coursework and exam elements) is divided by the number who enrolled and whose course has finished.  This number is expressed as a percentage. This percentage is recalculated and updated annually.  As mixed assessment units have ongoing enrolments and each course is eighteen months in duration, a cumulative pass rate is updated annually.
