Johannesburg, Friday 18 August 2017 – Every year, aspiring chartered accountants [(CAs(SA)] have two chances to pass the first qualifying examination, the Initial Test of Competence (ITC); one in January and the other in June. For this reason, many of candidates who sit for the June ITC are repeat candidates who are taking advantage of these further opportunities to pass the exam. Today, the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) is proud to announce that out of the 913 candidates who sat the June ITC, 583 (64%) have passed.
