Are numbers availabel for how many people have passed the basic assessment?

Ideally on an association by association membership basis, but overall numbers would do.

Purely out of curiosity following conversations with people at different ends of the country.

That gives me this years data; I can collate the data given in previous issues of the BBKA news.
But I'm interested in the actual overall statistics.

So, say an association has 300 members, how many have passed the basic assessment, how many have done further education exams or assessments?

And overall the BBKA has 25000  members how many have passed the basic?

Diane, details of passes are given in the Examinations Board report to the ADM. There is a full breakdown of Basic passes by county. You should be able to get a copy of the ADM papers from your association. Someone may even have past years filed away. I have 2016, 2015 and 2012 so if you pm me your e-mail I could send them.

Alternatively your county exam officer will probably have the exam board reports.
