    Remember the exams are only one part, you still need 3 years relevant experience on top

    I want to become a qualified chartered accounted as soon as possible. I'm currently studying economics and accounting at Brunel. To my understanding they offer 6-8 exemptions for ACCA. What do you suggest i do to quicken the process?, how do you gain experience?.

    In order to gain experience, you must obviously secure a job which allows you to undertake what, ACCA deems to be relevant work experience. 36 months' experience is required.

    Sena5 is correct, though that job does not have to be with a firm of AC, it can be in industry, public sector, voluntary sector etc {{ACCA call it PER).
    A small point but in the world of AC a chartered AC is strictly speaking a member of ICAEW, the only way to become one is to get a training contract with a firm of chartered AC, ACCA (my body, my firm is an ACCA practice)! is a chartered certified - more flexible in how to qualify

    Here is a List of CBE Centres
    Yes you have to contact your CBE centre for about the exam application. CBE exams are online exams and PBE exams are only paper based! That is the difference.

    CBE exams are meant to be only online based exams. PBE exams are meant to be only [b]paper[b] based exams.

    IMPORTANT CHANGES TO CBEs


    In February we contacted you to let you know that changes were happening to the computer-based exams (CBEs) to improve the way we examine the Foundation-level awards, that’s FA1, MA1, FA2, MA2, FAB, FMA and FFA in your market.

    As of 1 January 2015 these papers will ONLY be available as CBEs. This means that the last time you can sit any of these exams by paper will be at the December 2014 session. You can continue to register for the paper exams up until the 8 November 2014.

    How do these changes affect me?
    These changes will have no impact on your studies, computer-based exams are simply another way to sit your exams and there are real benefits to sitting exams by this method. Unlike the paper-based exams, computer-based exams allow you:

    Flexibility– you can sit exams at any time of the year, so there is no need to wait for the June and December exam sessions. Plus there are no restrictions on the number of times you can re-sit the exams by CBE.
    Instant results – no need to wait for the paper-based results in February and August, your results are displayed on the computer screen at the end of the exam. These are then uploaded by the licensed CBE centre to your myACCA account within 72 hours.
    Convenience - as the exams can be sat on demand throughout the year, you get to control your studies and have the potential to work through the qualification more quickly.

    There are lots of resources available to you to help you transition to CBEs, including Practice Tests, which replicate the CBE environment and help you identify your strengths and weaknesses before you take an exam. Visit our website to access resources.

    So, when you are ready to sit your next exam, you should consider sitting them by computer-based exam. It’s really simple:

    find your nearest computer-based exam centre by looking into the link - List of CBE Centres
    Contact them directly to arrange a date for your exam and to make payment
    Turn up and sit your exam and get your instant result, it’s that easy.

    Hello everyone,

    For anyone who’s interested in entering the accountancy industry, we would like to recommend a recent report that we produced in partnership with accountancy job site GAAPweb after a survey with 149 employers in the UK

    Just a few interesting points from the report:
    - 46% of employers place importance on a professional qualification when looking for entry-level candidates.
    - 73% rate previous work experience as “extremely important” or “important”
    - 88% employers stated that communication skills are regarded as the most useful attribute, closely followed by people skills and teamwork (84%).

    The accountancy industry is a major contributor to the economy and in 2012 there were more than 165,000 students registered with accountancy bodies in the UK. If you are interested, LSBF and GAAPweb’s Industry Report; ‘What do Financial and Accounting Employers Want?’ can be accessed here: http://bit.ly/LSBF-GAAPweb-Report

    If you have any questions, we will be more than happy to help.

    Hello there,

    As you are already studying towards an accountancy degree, it might be worth it for you to consider the CIMA qualification, rather than ACCA. While both are equally recognised and respected by employers internationally, the CIMA qualification provides you with management skills which could benefit you by providing you with a wider range of career prospects.

    You are already acquiring essential accountancy skills, so the managerial skills provided by the CIMA qualification would complement your CV and probably help you to become a more adaptable professional.

    I hope that helps.
