    NSOA Cape Town is thrilled to announce our provisional 2017 CTA results for students registered on the Deluxe support programme.

    2017 results celebration

    28 of the 70 CTA 2 students enrolled on the programme were succesful, making it a 40% pass rate before any supplementary exam results.  A further 16 students have qualified to write the supplementary exams in January 2018, giving the programme a maximum pass rate of 63% should all the supplementary students pass.

    Congratulations to the “class of 2017” for another brilliant result.

    2015 Cape Town Deluxe results

    well doneHaving waited patiently, UNISA CTA results are now mostly out.  Although we have a few outstanding results from our Cape Town NSOA Deluxe class, we have enough back to be able to publish our success rate.

    In total, we had 86 students on the Deluxe programme in Cape Town.  Of these, 31 have passed (36%) and 39 have supplementary exams (45%).  We are still waiting for 15 results and for now, have assumed the worst for them.  These 15 are included in the figures above and so these %’s represented a worst case scenario.

    If 50% of our students who write the supp were to pass, it would increase our pass rate from 36% to 59%.  Of course, we are hoping for better success in the supplementaries than this, which would only increase the pass rate even more!

    We are very happy with how our student group has performed to date and would like to congratulate all those who have passed and extend our best wishes to those writing supps.  For those who didn’t make it, use 2016 to show UNISA what you’re worth – 2015 was just a practice run for you!
