2012 UFE Results Breakdown

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.

Total Successful Candidates in 2012: 3077 – vs. 2,857 in 2011 (8% increase) CICA Press Release

Successful in CASB (West): 1,007 (33%)
Successful in Ontario: 1,279 (42%)
Successful in Quebec: 642 (21%)
Successful in Atlantic Canada: 149 (5%) (I think this includes Bermuda too!)

Congraulations to the 59 candidates which made the honour roll this year! Full List Here

NATIONAL Gold Medallist: JOSHUA HUFF, KPMG LLP, Waterloo – Wilfrid Laurier University, BBA, 2011

Western Canada Gold Medallists: PAULA OVERGUARD, PwC LLP, Calgary AND IVAN WONG, KPMG LLP, Vancouver (There was a tie!)

Quebec Gold Medallist: JONATHAN DUBUC, Chiasson Gauvreau Inc.

Atlantic Canada Gold Medallist: LAUREN K. MCQUAID, BDO Canada LLP.

The Big Four accounting firms top the honour roll again this year.

PwC: 14 candidates (24%)
KPMG: 11 candidates (18%)
E&Y: 10 candidates (17%)
Deloitte: 7 candidates (12%)
Other: 17 candidates (29%)

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!

Commenting Guidelines

I love open conversations. Casual is fine, professional is fine, but this is a community so anything abusive, demeaning or annoying will be removed at my discretion. Below is a guide to help keep you on the straight and narrow.

  1. 1. Use a name or alias. I understand wanting to keep your name personal, so make something clever up and stick to it. We can't tell each other apart if everybody is "Anon".
  2. 2. Remember the point. This is a community to discuss, debate and assist each other to pass the CFE or discuss other CPA things. Let's act like we're all the intelligent professionals that we are supposed to be.
  3. 3. No personal attacks. It's okay to disagree with opinions or advice but argue the point, not the person.
  4. 4. Don't be obnoxious. You should be proud if you are the next honour roll writer or work for a prestigious firm but don't be obnoxious by using it to feel better than others.
