Elizabeth is on top of the world.
Elizabeth Swift, 24, achieved the second highest aggregate score worldwide in examinations sat by 17,000 accountants across the globe.
She picked up the silver medal prize - and a cheque for pounds 400 - from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants after her scores were totted up during the final three core papers in the ACCA's December 2002 examinations.
Elizabeth, who lives in Greenmoor Road, is a former pupil at the town's Manor Park Community School in Beaumont Road.
She works as a semi-senior accountant for Dafferns chartered accountants at their offices in Queens Road, Coventry.
She said: ""The ACCA qualification will open a wide range of opportunities to me. I now look forward to achieving my goal of becoming a fully qualified chartered certified accountant."
Ian Smedley, a senior partner with Dafferns, said: "To win a prize in any of these demanding examinations is difficult, but to achieve the silver medal from a total of 17,000 students sitting the exams worldwide is absolutely exceptional.
"We are very proud of her," he added.
