An accountancy student from Birmingham has scored the highest mark in the world in an accountancy exam.

Rebecca Paterson beat 3,661 others to bag the joint top score for the ACCAs Advanced Taxation paper.

Let's compete
I propose that the top student in Adv Tax from ICA compete with ACCA compete with AIA as these three bodies is supposed to have equivalent standards in their exam papers.

Then, go publish the top student who came out tops in this competition.
