Court Reporting successes!

Apr
13

Congratulations to the many CfJ students who passed last month's NCTJ Court Reporting exam. Once again we had a pass rate of over 90% which is a terrific testament to the hard work you all put in over a very short time-scale. Lara Elcheik was top scorer with a stonking 86% with Elaine Loke and Charlotte Wardley also hitting the dizzy heights of the 80s. Well done all.
