On June 11, the University News Network announced the status of the universities with the highest rate of students passing the 2019 Tax Accountant Exam. From Hanyang University, 25 students passed the 1st exam while 25 students passed the 2nd exam.

While these student statistics have been announced over the years, this is the first time the numbers of examinees from each university have been specified. Hanyang University's ratio of successful applicants for the 1st exam was 16.9% (25 people / 148 people), and on the 2nd exam it was 32.3% (77 people / 239 people). The number of successful applicants by univeristy data was provided by the Human Resources Development Service of Korea through information gathered during the exam application process when applicants had to enter which school they were from.

The Tax Accountant Exam, just like all the other exams for specialized jobs in Korea, requires a 1st and 2nd exam. Both the 1st and 2nd exams use an absolute scale system, where the applicants must get at least an average of 60 points, and 40 points for each subject. However, while the 1st exam can be passed according to the absolute scale system because usually there are fewer successful candidates than the fixed minimum number for the final selection, there is quite a large number of people that still pass the test despite receiving disqualifying scores. Additionally,there has been an issue with the 2nd exam being insufficient to judge the quality of universities. This is because of the fact that the majority of applicants that are taking the 2nd exam graduated a long time ago. Considering this fact, it can be said that the 1st exam is a better index to measure the effectiveness of the universities.
