Pre-Exam 2014 statististics

24 March 2013: the results are in EQE Pre-Exam statistics

Some figures:
- Participants:  648 (14 did not turn up)
- Passes:        555 (70-100 marks);   85.7%
- Fails:              93 (up to 70 marks); 14,3 %
- Average:         80 marks
- Highest score: 98 marks
No participant scored full marks.

Here's how the marks are distributed:



How does this compare to last year's result:
- Participants:  643
- Passes:        641 (50-100 marks)
- Fails:               2 (up to 50 marks)
- Average:         81 marks

This year the pass threshold changed from 50 to 70 marks.
Had the threshold remained at 50, 11 candidates would have failed the exam and the pass rate would have been 98.3%. 
This only marginally differs from 2013. 
Thus the 2014 Pre-exam seems to be of a same complexity as 2013; the big difference being the pass threshold.
