ACCA Global Exemptions

ACCA Exam Entry 

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.
