    No. It is not correct.

    You could say he gained his qualification with distinction.

    'Unanimous' does not collocate with 'distinction'.

    I think unanimous means that if 10 people voted then all of them agreed to the same thing. How can I express that with distinction?

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help.

    'He qualified with distinction after a unanimous vote by the examiners.'

    Re: unanimous distinction

    dervast - you have to separate the unanimous vote from the passing with distinction. A single person (the exam candidate) can''t behave unanimously - he only has one mind to start with!
