Daniel Powley from our Tunbridge Wells office has achieved the highest mark worldwide for his accountancy examination, ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) Paper Joint P2, with a score of 89 out of 100.
Daniel, who joined the practice as a trainee accountant in October 2013, sat the examination in December. He received a letter last month confirming his results and will now be recognised for his achievement by ACCA and receive £200 prize money along with a certificate of merit.
Commenting on his achievement Daniel said:
"I am absolutely delighted with my result. It was really unexpected. I had worked very hard for this examination, but I didn't ever expect to receive the highest mark in the country, let alone worldwide."
Simon Hayden, Partner at the Tunbridge Wells branch, added:
"We are all extremely proud of Dan. This is an exceptional achievement and the whole team at Perrys wishes him the warmest congratulations."
