Pass rates up as ICE blooms

Institution News

EXCELLENT RESULTS in the spring 2001 Professional Reviews have confirmed a rising trend in the pass rate and ensures that ICE membership continues to thrive.

In this round 287 candidates entered for Chartered Professional Review, just exceeding the 285 candidates in last autumn's review. The high 82% autumn pass rate was matched.

Reviewers attributed the good statistical performance to a combination of high quality candidates and better interview preparation.

The Review is fundamentally an exercise in communication, based on the proviso that a candidate has met the ICE's core objectives.

The ICE was particularly encouraged by an increased interest in its senior route, which is designed to attract senior members of the industry by offering the chance of membership without the need to complete normal training requirements. This spring 19 candidates chose this route, achieving a pass rate of over 90%.

However, at grass roots level the low number of candidates entering for the Incorporated Professional Review and Technician Review was once again disappointing.

Just 13 candidates sat the IPR - down on 15 last autumn - and there were no candidates for Technician Review.
