StudySmart Pass Rates for ACCA and DipIFR Exceed Expectations!


Press Release, Athens, January 2016




As a global institution committed to delivering first-class tuition worldwide, we are  proud to announce that our overall pass rates have continuously exceeded the global ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) pass rates a fact that has strengthened our position in the markets we operate.


Our overall pass rates for ACCA went up to 72%, while our pass rate for ACCA’s DipIFR qualification was 67%. Please note that the global overall pass rates for ACCA for the same papers offered was 47% and for the DipIFR 44%. Given our excellent results and our recent move into our new unique training premises, we feel that we will be able to meet all requirements set by ACCA to develop our standards and further our quality in the next year.

As an ACCA Gold Status approved learning partner, we have formal recognition of our quality and success in supporting students throughout their ACCA qualification. We have probably some of the most experienced ACCA tutors in the areas we operate at local and international level, all with international experience and active practitioners in their specialty area who provide students with invaluable knowledge and insight. This has been acquired through years spent at the highest levels of business and academia.


Dr. Constantine Kiritsis, founder of StudySmart stated: “Our pass rates mirror our quality. We are expecting higher rates soon given our policy of small groups and personalized attention which is unmatched. Personally, being instrumental in the launch of professional qualifications in Greece, we are constantly being benchmarked by wider stakeholders and we welcome that. We are very proud to be recognized by the ACCA for the quality of tuition given to our students and are determined to continue meeting the highest standards possible. Thanks to all stakeholders involved and above all our excellent tutors”.


ACCA Gold Status is only awarded to those institutions able to meet a highly challenging set of performance standards that relate to lecturers, administration, support, material and other important criteria. ACCA recommends Gold Approved Learning Partners – student tuition to its students.

    A Complimentary Webinar will be delivered by Dr. Constantine 'Dino' Kiritsis on the 7th of September 2019 (Saturday) 11 am- 12 pm Islamabad GMT +5.00. A Global Trend to Real Time Career Development Since the late parts of the 20th century executives around the world and professionals have been making a shift towards professional qualifications. There are numerous reasons justifying this 'shift': the practical knowledge offered by these programs, their global character, the fact that they certify competency and staying employable through CPDs, and their continuous renewal of their syllabus in order to respond to the needs of corporations and each profession. This is a growing fact, given that the University degree does not necessarily provide differentiation (the term academic inflation) and associations seem to be taking the lead when it comes to employee requirement, advancement and mobility (i.e. CFA, CIA, ACCA, SHRM etc.). Can professional qualifications differentiate professionals and provide the competitive advantage to organizations that embrace them? In an era of academic inflation, it is important to have a way to guarantee competence professionalism and employability skills. Organizations and professionals must adapt fast to change, be practical, and update constantly. Certifications by well known professional bodies can help. Are you certified in your area of expertise? Does your organization have a policy supporting certification training? Are you up-to-date in your area? If you are interested in your own professional development and the development of your people, you need to attend this session. This webinar contains 1 PDC towards SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP Recertification Register for free here .
