ACCA to introduce remote exam-taking

A great new dawn for ACCA ‘Remote Exam Invigilation’ (REI). Challenging times call for brave and decisive steps and not many will be as bold as the move by ACCA to REI. In summary ACCA students will be able to sit their exams at home, in the office or anywhere else and be remotely invigilated with appropriate controls. There is a thorough system of checks involving biometrics, artificial intelligence and recording – rigour, security and integrity are paramount. ACCA are targeting June to enable this for the on-demand exams (Applied Knowledge and Foundation level exams) and September for the session-based Applied Skills exams. ACCA are still exploring the situation for the Strategic Professional exams and will provide updates soon.
