Congratulations again to all those successful today. Here’s a quick breakdown of the 2012 UFE results. I did this quickly so it may have some errors (feel free to point them out) but I think it’s accurate.

I’ve only dug up school information for Ontario right now. University of Toronto and Waterloo had a good showing this year with 6 and 5 candidates from those schools making the honour roll this year.
Below you’ll find my attempt at a rather pathetic infographic that only an accountant without any art talent could make. You should share this masterpiece. Feel free to make fun!
