An employee at ByBox, the UK’s leading through-the-night distribution company, has achieved a ‘world’s best’ in a prestigious exam.
Accounts Assistant Emma Selley, 22, achieved the highest mark worldwide with the ACCA (Association of Certified Chartered Accountants).
Emma, who works at the ByBox site in Wantage, Oxfordshire, achieved a mark of 89 per cent for her ACCA Paper 2 INT – Corporate Reporting.
In doing so she achieved a higher score than an estimated 20,000 candidates who took the same exam across the world.
Emma, who has worked for ByBox since September, 2008, said she couldn’t believe she had been so successful.
She said: "I worked hard and hoped to do well but did not expect to do this well.
"I was literally ‘gobsmacked’ when I heard my result and so proud of the achievement.
"I chose the ACCA due to its global recognition and ability to enhance my knowledge and skills which will further develop my accountancy career.
"The ACCA examinations are very challenging and consist of a lot of hard work and dedication in order to succeed and progress."
Emma thanked her family, friends and colleagues for their support and said she hoped to continue her impressive progress in the future.
