ACCA exams will be delivered online
In May 2020 ACCA released the following statement:
“We recognise the disruption exam cancellations have caused. We applaud the impressive efforts made by our learning partner network to mobilise and engage their students during these unprecedented times.
We’re delighted to announce that in circumstances where centre-based exams are disrupted, we’re introducing new flexibility for ACCA students to take exams at home, through remote invigilation.”
Which exams will be available online, and when?
ACCA confirmed that on-demand exams at Knowledge Level plus the Skills Corporate Law module will be available to book from 18th June as remote exams. These exams include FA1, MA1, FA2, MA2, FAB, FMA and FFA. Furthermore, ACCA have confirmed that if centre-based Applied Skills exams can’t go ahead in September 2020, a remote exam contingency is in place. Therefore, ACCA students are encouraged to book their September 2020 exams with confidence.
ACCA’s Alan Hatfield said: “Exam entry is open for September and we know students are already planning for this session. We advise students to book exams in their local centre as usual and we’ll provide updates if circumstances change.”
How does remote invigilation work?
Using the latest technology, you will take exams online and a live invigilator will invigilate remotely. There is a thorough system of checks involving biometrics, artificial intelligence and recording. ACCA provides more information about this process here.
Will there be a change to exam fees?
There will be no change to current September exam fees. However, ACCA have announced that there will be an exam fee increase for the December 2020 exam session. Please see the ACCA website for more information.
How many ACCA exams can I sit to September?
If you have the time available, we recommend sitting two exams in September and starting to study now. Consequently, September 2020 is our biggest course offering yet – see our online course dates here or find your local centre’s course offerings.
