Order of Merit Awards

We will continue to recognise the academic success of our students who achieved first place in their ICAEW exams (the Northern Society Order of Merit Award) which has been awarded for many years and we will also present the Presidents’ Awards.

Presidents’ Awards

The Presidents’ Awards will be awarded to one student at Professional Stage and one student at Advanced Stage who have demonstrated both:-

a) Academic excellence, by finishing in the top 20 of highest overall marks in the Northern Society Order of Merit; and

b) Made an exceptional contribution to their firm/organisation by their professionalism, business acumen, teamwork or to the Northern Society or wider general community.

The Qualified Person Responsible for Training (QPRT) at the relevant firm was invited to submit a written citation in support for all ACA students at their firm who had a registered address in the Northern Society area who finished in a top 20 position at Professional Stage or Advanced Stage in the 2017 calendar year exams.

These were considered by a Judging Panel consisting of the President of Northern Society, the Immediate Past President of Northern Society and an independent member being the President of Newcastle upon Tyne Law Society who agreed on the finalists.

Congratulations to all the finalists on your success.
