Your email must be unique and private to you. If you need a new one, you can use ACCA’s free email service accamail.
This page lets you check the confirmation of your country of residence and choice of qualification. Take the time to read all the information on this page before moving on.
Now it’s time to share some more information – your address, employment details, and mobile number and if you would like SMS updates.
If asked which employment sector you work in, make sure to select Public Practice if you work in a firm that provides professional services that require accountancy or related skills that would be performed by a professional accountant.
Next you’ll be asked to enter your academic details to ensure you meet minimum entry requirements. This is also the time to use your academic credentials to apply for any possible exemptions, so make sure you have all information to hand.
This pages displays confirmation of your exam status and any exemptions provisionally awarded. You have the right to give up any exemptions and sit the exam instead simply by indicating it on this page. Finalized exemptions are confirmed at a later stage.
