ACCA Course Contents & Guidance

There are three units at this level.

You’ll learn about the role of accounting in the business environment and develop the practical skills and techniques required of an accountant.

Applied Knowledge

Applied Knowledge is the entry level to the ACCA accounting qualification. If you have no previous qualifications, then you should complete the final level of the AAT or FIA Diploma first, before moving on to ACCA.

Students with two A-Levels and three GCSEs in five separate subjects (including English and Maths) or with a non-relevant degree or NVQ qualification can proceed directly on to the Applied Knowledge level.

There are three subjects in the Applied Knowledge level and these can be sat in any order.

Knowledge exams

Exams for the three Knowledge subjects are available to sit as a Computer Based Exam (CBE) at your local ACCA Exam centre.

Computer Based Exams

  • Available all year round (subject to availability)
  • Objective test and multi-task questions
  • 2 hour exam with a pass mark of 50%

Computer Based Exams consist of objective test questions and multi-task questions (MTQs). MTQs contain a series of tasks for students to complete, tasks which relate to one or more scenarios.

Knowledge exemptions

If you are AAT, FIA or CAT qualified or hold a relevant degree (e.g. Accountancy, Finance, Law or Management) then you may be eligible for exemptions from the Knowledge level. You must apply for exemptions through ACCA when you register with ACCA as a student.

We advise doing this before you begin the level to ensure you start your studies at the correct point. You can check to see if you qualify for any exemptions on the ACCA website.

ENG and GLO versions of the exam are only examined by CBE in the UK. With the exception of LW, exams for the Applied Skills subjects are available as Session CBEs sat at ACCA centres and there are four exam sittings per year.

In the UK, Applied Skills subjects are only examined by Session CBE. In some countries the subjects are still also available as Paper Based Exams (PBE) which take place at the same time as the Session CBE. Find out more about Session CBEs in your location.

Session CBEs are three hours 20 minutes long plus up to 10 minutes to read the pre-exam instructions. PBEs are three hours long with 15 minutes reading time. Find out more about the CBE exam format.

Essentials

ACCA have recently redesigned the Professional level (consisting of Essentials and Options subjects) to create the Strategic Professional level. There are four exam sessions per year. You can sit a maximum of four exams at each session, and a maximum of eight distinct exams each calendar year. You can overlap with subjects on Applied Skills as long as the Applied Skills level is being completed. However, there are no exemptions available for the Strategic Professional Essentials level so all subjects must be passed to continue with your studies. Strategic Professional subjects can be attempted in any order so you do not have to sit Essentials before Options. In fact we would recommend you leave Strategic Business Leader (SBL) until later in your studies. These are Paper Based Exams (PBEs) which are sat at ACCA centres, booked directly with ACCA. Learn more about exam dates on ACCA’s website.  ACCA advise you to take the external ethics exam, Ethics and Professional Skills, before you sit any exams on Strategic Professional. Please visit ACCA’s website for more details.

  • (SBL) Strategic Business Leader
  • (SBR) Strategic Business Reporting

Optionals

Strategic Professional Essentials and Options can be attempted in any order.

There are no exemptions available for the Strategic Professional Options level. You only need to complete two out of the four papers.

Strategic Professional Options exams

Exams for the Strategic Professional Options papers are Paper Based Exams (PBE), which are sat at ACCA centres and there are four exam sittings per year. Find out more about exam entry dates on ACCA website.

Exams are three hours long with 15 minutes available for reading time.

The pass mark for all papers is 50%.

I got a job offer within few days after completing my sage payroll online course here. Now i am confident to get a high paying job soon. My tutor was amazing- very helpful, very experienced, and very detailed. Some minor things need to be sorted out and they will be the best.
Excellent and expert tutor support Enrolled in sage 50 online course: fast track mode, 2 weeks back after finding their course to be up to date with the latest industry requirements. Currently, I am attending my virtual classes. Superb tutorial support, which is friendly and solves all my queries in no time. But sometimes the study material website loads slow, could be because of overloading. so four stars for that. Except that, everything worked great for me.
My experience with Osborne Training was a positive one but I have to say that my tutor made the experience even the more special. She was quick in her responses, very knowledgeable, helpful and made the learning processes an enjoyable and seamless one. The study materials and books provided for ACCA courses were easy to use and understand. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.
