Kayleigh Milne, an ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) student from Inverurie who works for business advisory and chartered accountancy firm Johnston Carmichael has achieved the top score for the P3 Business Analysis exam, making her a global prize-winner in the latest ACCA exam session.
Craig Vickery, head of ACCA Scotland, said “This is truly an outstanding mark that deserves recognition. Kayleigh’s fantastic accomplishment in achieving the highest score for the P3 Business Analysis exam showcases the outstanding ability of ACCA students here in Scotland. Congratulations Kayleigh.”
Kayleigh said “I put a lot of pressure on myself and get very stressed out around exam time. I consider myself extremely lucky as Johnston Carmichael is very supportive of my studying. I receive exam / study leave before my exams which admittedly is absolutely vital to helping me pass my exams as it gives me that time to fully focus my attention on studying and gives me a break from juggling work and study right before the exam.
“Life can get in the way and it can become easy to fall behind. However if you have a plan and keep up with it, it will allow you to assess the situation on a weekly basis enabling you to stay on track.”
Iain Abernethy, Head of Learning and Development at Johnston Carmichael said “The staff and partners here at Johnston Carmichael are extremely proud of Kayleigh. She has sustained a very high standard of exam pass throughout her studies; however this result is a truly outstanding achievement. Kayleigh has a tremendous attitude to her work and studies, is a real pleasure to work with and undoubtedly has a very bright future ahead of her.”
