Part III student numbers drop 30 per cent in 20 years

  • Comment

The number of students passing their Part III examinations has fallen by approximately a third in 20 years, according to research carried out for the riba.

At the end of the academic year 1997-98 the number of students gaining their Part III had come down from 1100 in 1979 to 707. For the same period 1688 students passed Part I and 1346 passed Part II. The part three figure of 707 compares to 1022 who completed Part II two years ago - a drop-out rate of approximately one third. The figures also suggest that about one quarter of students do not progress from Part I to Part II. Part I figures reached a five-year high in 1994-95 with 1815 passes; this year's figure of 1688 is the lowest during that period.

Women comprised 34 per cent of new entrants in 1997-98, compared to 33 per cent the year before, and 31 per cent the year before that.
