Zara Naeem Declared Global Prize Winner for Achieving the Highest Marks in ACCA Worldwide
Pakistani students continue to make the country proud by impressing the world with their excellent exam performance in the global professional accountancy exams conducted by ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants).
Zara Naeem, an ACCA student from Lahore, has been declared the global prize winner for scoring the highest marks in the Financial Reporting exam conducted in December 2020.
The ACCA qualification is considered the gold standard in accountancy with recognition and presence in over 179 countries worldwide, opening doors to highly respected and fulfilling career opportunities around the world.
Zara Naeem credits this success to her father who always encouraged all the girls in the family to pursue their dreams and smash all artificial barriers. Retired after a stellar career in the military, Zara’s father himself holds a master’s degree and is highly passionate to see his child doing big things for the country.
Explaining the reason for choosing ACCA, Zara shared,
Busting the myth that finance and accountancy is a male-dominated profession, she shared,
Zara has big dreams for herself and is committed to start her own consultancy firm after attaining ACCA membership. She’s confident that her firm will be able to win international clients due to her globally accepted qualification and worldwide connections that ACCA membership offers.
Despite much disruption globally as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, ACCA was able to run almost 153,000 exams across the vast majority of its markets worldwide. For the health and safety of its students, additional measures were implemented in line with relevant governmental advice.
The ACCA qualification rigorously tests the skills and competencies that a modern-day accountant needs with a firm grounding in ethics and professionalism. It prepares students for a rewarding career as a qualified and ethical finance professional.
