Tan Xin Yin who emerged top in Malaysia and third in the world for paper P1 Governance, Risk and Ethics in the ACCA December 2016 examinations.







The latest high achiever from TAR UC who has achieved exceptional results in the ACCA examinations is Tan Xin Yin. Xin Yin emerged as Top in Malaysia and Third in the World for paper P1 Governance, Risk and Ethics in the December 2016 examinations.

Xin Yin who graduated from TAR UC in November 2016 with a Bachelor of Accounting (Hons) was extremely happy to receive the news. “I have put in a lot of effort in my preparation for the ACCA examinations. Besides my daily revision, I invested a lot of my time to practise answering past year examination questions which I obtained from TAR UC Library. I am also very appreciative of my lecturers for conducting intensive revision classes for me and my classmates. TAR UC’s Virtual Centre for Excellence in Professional Accountancy is another facility that was of great help in my revision as it contains relevant reading materials, past examination question papers and techniques on how to answer questions in the ACCA examinations,” she remarked.

The high achiever also shared her reasons of choosing to study in TAR UC and how her decision to study in TAR UC proved worth her while. “I chose to study in TAR UC because of its reputation as one of ACCA’s Platinum Approved Learning Partner. The 4 years that I spent in TAR UC was very fruitful for me as I have built a solid foundation in the area of accounting. Besides this, my lecturers are very knowledgeable in the subjects they teach and they ensure that the students are well-equipped with the latest trends in the profession. On top of this, as I was constantly required to do presentation in class, my communications skill has improved tremendously and this has helped me during my 6-month internship programme where I was required to engage with people from various levels,” she explained.

With all the skill sets and knowledge that Xin Yin obtained while studying in TAR UC, the high achiever is confident of soaring high in the corporate world. “I am currently working in an audit firm as an Audit Associate where I seek to gain working experience in auditing before I move forward in achieving my ambition to be a Chartered Accountant. A professional qualification from ACCA will certainly carry weight. However, it is a well-known fact that obtaining the ACCA professional qualification is challenging and time consuming, but with TAR UC’s Bachelor of Accounting (Hons), I was exempted from all 9 papers of the ACCA Fundamentals.  As such, I was able to pursue the ACCA Professional Level papers after I graduated. Having said this, I have to thank TAR UC for providing the solid foundation and the fastest route for me to obtain my ACCA qualification. I am now focused on completing the remaining ACCA Professional Level papers,” she said.

Tan Xin Yin’s success is another feather in TAR UC’s cap, as the institution has produced many high achievers in the ACCA examinations. TAR UC has received many accolades and recognition from ACCA which include amongst others, being recognised as the only institution in the world approved by ACCA to conduct the Internally Assessed ACCA Fundamentals (Skills Module) programme for all 9 modules of the ACCA fundamentals.
