Assessment

Most courses can be sat on demand, so when you feel ready to sit the exam you can do so at a Computer Based Exam (CBE) centre near you or if you prefer to do a paper-based exam you can do so in June and December.


You will need to complete the Knowledge programme before moving onto the Skills programme. Maximum of four exams can be taken per exam sitting. You will need to obtain 50% in each exam in order to pass.


Remember completing a programme or course with us does not automatically enter you into the exams, you will need to register directly with ACCA for that.


*As ACCA is a professional accountancy body, it is important for them to ensure all students are aware of how to work and act in a professional and ethical manner. Because of this all students will need to complete Foundations in Professionalism. This can be done online and completed either before or after your exams.

What's next

On completion of your final ACCA course and your three year practical experience you will become a Member of the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants.
