How did Pre-Exam 2014 candidates to in EQE 2015?

Of the 985 candidates sitting the D paper in 2015, 428 passed the Pre-Exam in 2014 (of which 7 after the appeals to statement 10.4).

These 428 candidates scored as follows:

PE2014 candidates score > 68-69 70-79 80-89 90-100 All non-0 Never Pre All Pre 2014
#sitting D (non-zero) 7 98 218 105 985 325 428
#passes D  1 53 170 98 554 110 322
#passes+comp fail D  4 63 185 101 667 151 353
#compfail D 3 10 15 3 113 41 31
#fail D (non-zero) 3 35 33 4 318 174 75
#fail D (zero) = no-show 1 3 3 1 44 27 8
#passes D  14% 54% 78% 93% 56% 34% 75%
#passes+comp fail D  57% 64% 85% 96% 68% 46% 82%
#compfail D 43% 10% 7% 3% 11% 13% 7%
#fail D (non-zero) 43% 36% 15% 4% 32% 54% 18%

Clearly, the higher the Pre-Exam score, the higher the chance to pass paper D. Probably this is an indication of both good legal preparation with serious studying for the Pre-Exam in the first year, combined with a good follow-up study and exam preparation in the second year.

It is also interesting to see that one of the candidates that appealed the initial fail decision passed paper D and 3 more passed paper D with a compensable fail. He or she even passed paper D even passed all four papers, with scores 62, 54, 52, and 56! Special congratulations to whoever it may be!

Further, see the discussions on the D-blog "D 2015 results for various types of candidates" and on our general EQE blog "Results Main Exam EQE 2015 are available!".
