STUDENTS’ FAQS ON EXAMS

  • WHEN WILL ACCA INTRODUCE FOUR EXAM SESSIONS PER YEAR?

We are pleased to say that from March 2016 we are running four exam sessions a year at all our listed exam centres across all markets.

  •  WHY IS ACCA INTRODUCING FOUR EXAM SESSIONS A YEAR?

We are increasing the flexibility and choice of when you can sit exams because current students told us this is what they wanted.

Increasing the number of exam sessions available gives you more choice when it comes to fitting exams around your life and working through the qualification at a pace that suits you.

You’ll have a better chance of success by spreading your studies over the additional sessions, potentially allowing you to study for additional exams each year and providing the opportunity to take resits earlier.

  • WHAT EXAMS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT EACH SESSION?

All exams presently offered in paper-based format will be available during the June and December exam sessions. During the March and September exam sessions no FIA, IFRS, F1–F3 and limited variants will be available.Remember, the majority of these exams are available as on-demand computer based exams, which offer even greater flexibility and convenience. We will also be reducing the timetable from eight days to five days so we can publish exam results sooner.

  • THIS MEANS I CAN NOW ENTER FOR TWO EXAM SESSIONS AT THE SAME TIME. WHY SHOULD I DO THIS AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT THE PROGRESSION RULES?

You can now be entered for two consecutive exam sessions at the same time, meaning you can take advantage of the cheapest exam fees for both sessions and be able to plan your studies in advance.During exam entry, you’ll have the option to enter for one of or both of the next two available sessions. To enter for both exam sessions, you will complete two exam entries.If you enter for two upcoming exam sessions at the same time, progression rules will look across both exam entries and treat them as one.For example, you could enter for F8 and F9 for the December session and P1 and P5 for the March session at the same time. Once both entries have been accepted, any subsequent results from the first session will not affect the exam entry for the second session.

  • IF I FAIL AN EXAM AND HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED AN EXAM ENTRY FOR THE UPCOMING SESSION, WILL I BE ABLE TO AMEND MY EXAM ENTRY SO I CAN TAKE THE RESIT AT THIS SESSION?

Yes, you would be able to amend your exam entry right up until the standard entry deadline as you can do currently. Results for the previous session will be published two weeks prior to the standard entry deadline closing, allowing you to amend your exam entry during this period.
