57% pass senior journalism exams

Fifty-seven per cent of trainees who sat the National Qualification in Journalism (NQJ) exams in March achieved the qualification, figures from the NCTJ reveal.

Of the 28 candidates who sat the exams, 16 were successful in all four parts – media law and practice, news report, news interview and e-logbook – thereby achieving ‘senior journalist’ status.

This was the final NQJ sitting before it is replaced with the new level 6 NQJ, which has been developed following an industry-wide review.
