ADIT exam results

Exams: ADIT exam results
24 February 2023

Students should feel ‘extremely proud’, says CIOT, after hundreds of students pass the latest round of ADIT exams.

The CIOT is delighted to announce the latest cohort of successful ADIT (Advanced Diploma in International Taxation) students, graduates and award winners, following December’s examinations.

A total of 570 students sat 609 online exams in 58 different countries, with 377 of those passing at least one exam. The latest results also saw 73 students join the growing ranks of ADIT graduates by successfully completing their third ADIT module, including 11 who achieved the distinction grade for excellence in their exams.

The ADIT qualification is now held by 1762 tax practitioners in 86 countries and territories around the world, including more than 300 who have chosen to subscribe with the CIOT as International Tax Affiliates.

CIOT President Susan Ball said: ‘On behalf of the CIOT, I extended warm congratulations to the many ADIT students around the world who have passed their latest exams. We continue to be impressed by the international tax knowledge and skills demonstrated by our students. It is truly inspiring to witness their achievements, and we look forward to welcoming the latest group of graduates to our next ADIT Awards Ceremony.

‘The ADIT exams are not easy, and certification is increasingly viewed as a mark of excellence by international tax employers around the world. Any professional who attains the full qualification should feel extremely proud of their achievement, while students who still have exams left to sit can mark their progress through a range of standalone and modular certificates that recognise partial achievement of the qualification.

‘We’re also seeing increased numbers of successful ADIT students take up our International Tax Affiliate subscription package upon completion of the qualification, as a means of continuing their professional development and demonstrating their commitment to the high professional and ethical standards that the Affiliate status entails.’

The following candidates will receive awards for their achievements:

  • Matthew Birchall of Macclesfield, United Kingdom, who is employed by HMRC in Salford, is awarded the Heather Self Medal for the best overall performance in Module 1 Principles of International Taxation.
  • Chia Chiang Tan of London, United Kingdom, is awarded the Raymond Kelly Medal for the best overall performance in Module 2.09 United Kingdom option.

Susan Ball continued: ‘In addition to the 73 new ADIT graduates, it is also my great pleasure to highlight the achievements of seven students who have today completed the ACA CTA Joint Programme by passing one of the available ADIT options, and one student who has completed the CA CTA Joint Programme through the ADIT exam route. We look forward to welcoming them as members of the CIOT.’
