AN accounts assistant from Bradford on Avon is celebrating after achieving 100 per cent in her professional qualification exam, breaking the world record.

Kalina Forbes, 25 who works for PKF Francis Clark in Salisbury got the record breaking score in her Business Planning: Taxation exam in her summer ACA (Association of Chartered Accountants) exams, and will attend a glittering awards ceremony in London next April.

Miss Forbes said: “I have put a lot of effort into studying, but I certainly didn’t expect to get 100 per cent and achieve the top mark worldwide.

“I am so pleased with the result, but this is just one step along the way to becoming professionally qualified as a chartered accountant.

"I still have three advanced papers to do in my final year of training.”

Miss Forbes who has an A level in Polish, went to St Augustine’s Catholic College.
