Reasons to study at AccountancySchool.ie:
ACCA Some facts:
Applied Knowledge Level:
ACCA Knowledge level is the first level of the ACCA qualification and consists of three modules: Accountant in Business, Management Accounting and Financial Accounting. Once a student has passed these three exams, they can progress onto ACCA Skills level.
Applied Skills Level:
ACCA Skills level is the second level in the ACCA qualification and comprises six modules and exams. This level is open to students who have completed the Knowledge level or gained exemptions from the Knowledge level through relevant study, such as completing a relevant degree.
Strategic Professional Level:
ACCA Professional level is the final level of the ACCA qualification. This level is open to students who have passed relevant ACCA exams or who have a relevant degree/masters. In addition to four exams, students must complete an online Ethics and Professional Skills module and complete their Practical Experience Requirement record before they can progress to ACCA membership.
ACCA offer you various entry points on to the ACCA Qualification depending on your previous academic qualifications.
The minimum entry requirement is two A Levels and three GCSEs or their equivalent. These need to be in five separate subjects including English and maths.
Full information for each country is available in the minimum entry criteria document, which is located on the exemptions enquiry database.
If you do not meet the minimum entry requirements to start the ACCA Qualification, then you will need to apply for Foundations in Accountancy and take some or all of these awards before continuing with the ACCA Qualification. If you complete the Diploma in Accounting and Business you will be able to transfer over to the ACCA Qualification, claim exemption from F1, F2 and F3 and continue your studies from F4 onwards.
ACCA Qualification Graduate-Entry Route
If you have a relevant degree from a university accredited by ACCA, then you may not need to take all of the ACCA Qualification exams. Nine exams at the Fundamentals level of the ACCA Qualification are eligible for exemption. You cannot claim exemptions from any exams at the Professional level.
Even if your qualifications are not from an accredited institution, you still may not need to take all of the exams. The amount of exemptions you can get will depend on how well your current qualifications match ACCA studies.
ACCA Exam Entry Process:
The key changes to the exam entry process are the addition of an early exam entry period to the standard and late exam entry periods which already exist and combined initial application with exam entry for students who apply online.
These changes and new dates will impact on when potential students should submit their initial application to ACCA. Students can now choose to submit an initial application at any time. However their application must be received by ACCA in plenty of time for ACCA to process it in respect of their chosen exam entry period. ACCA’s guideline is that initial applications should be received at least 20 days in advance of the published exam entry period closing dates.
