In the November 2013 examination, there were a total of 524 repeat candidates writing. Of these, 162 candidates had enrolled on the NSOA / IRBA support programme.
NSOA candidates achieved a commendable pass rate of 66% (107 of the 162 candidates) in comparison to the 59% pass rate achieved by the other repeat candidates not on the support programme.
Our leading NSOA venues were:
- East London / Port Elizabeth – 9 of the 11 candidates from this venue passed (82% pass rate)
- Cape Town – 39 of the 55 candidates from this venue passed (71% pass rate)
- Johannesburg – 37 of the 54 candidates from this venue passed (69% pass rate)
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all our succesful candidates.
For those that didn’t make it, 2014 will be the final year of this examination and NSOA will once again be running the support programme through the IRBA. Let’s all see if we can achieve a brilliant pass rate in 2014 and go out with a massive bang!
