ACCA Exam Process
You will generally start working through the Knowledge Module part of the ACCA syllabus and progress through the Skills, Essentials and Options modules in sequence. You can overlap two modules providing you are completing the lower level ACCA qualification module.
ACCA Entry Requirements
You can take the ACCA qualification courses and the exams without any qualifications, providing you already have a degree or reasonable A-levels and GCSE results (or equivalent). If you don’t have any of these qualifications, then you will need to take AAT or FIA training prior to commencing your ACCA course.
Work Experience Requirements
To get your final ACCA qualification, you will need to have undertaken a Practical Experience Requirement (PER) of three years. The ACCA requires that a manager or mentor signs a validation of your experience.
There is a compulsory ethics module, usually done at stage P1. This involves a basic grounding in the principles to which the profession aspires.
