BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance students rewarded for their exceptional academic performance

Nottingham Business School is celebrating the exceptional academic performance of its Year Two BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance students.

Nottingham Business School has recently hosted a prize giving event to celebrate the exceptional academic performance of its Year Two BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance students, Harnek Singh and Joy Sawyn. The awards were sponsored by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

Harnek secured the best overall academic performance for BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance Year Two in 2015/16, scoring an average of 90% on his modules. As finance trainee at Specsavers, Harnek is looking forward to his year-long placement experience to add to his CV, and hence make himself more employable after graduation. He is aiming to graduate with first-class honours, and after graduation hopes to be employed by an accounting firm to do his ICAEW professional exams. Harnek received a cheque for £100.

Joy achieved the best academic performance in Half-Year Two, attaining a mid-1st in Forensic Accounting and Auditing, Excellent 1st in Tax, and High 1st in Survey Research and Analysis. On placement as finance assistant at the Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Joy hopes to gain lots of relevant experience, put all the theory she has learnt into practice, and see how accounting is used in the working world. In her final year, she aims to work hard to make sure she gets the best grade possible, while also continuing her voluntary work and having a social life. She is aiming to achieve a 2:1 or above. Careerwise, she would like to continue working within accounting and finance, preferably gaining a graduate job so she can complete her professional exams. Joy received a cheque for £50.
