Hi

I previously sat CA exams passing the first level. Through an exam fail I have ended up working in industry in a management accounting role which I enjoy and have performed well in.

I have exemptions from F1-F4 from ACCA and all of the Certificate level at CIMA. From what I believe this is a similar starting point and would take similar time to complete?

The step from CA to ACCA probably ties in more, but I would prefer CIMA syllabus as long as I am not starting significantly behind where I would with ACCA.

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks.

There is not much difference between acca and cima but yes as you are working in industry as a management accountant it is seen as better/more specific to commercial accounting.

I wouldn't worry that much about exmptions as you still have a long way to go. 12 exams remain after cima certificate and there were 14 exams for acca plus ethics the last time i checked and so 10 remain for you. Both will take you at least 3 years, i know people who take more like 6, i guess it is the perk if not being aca.
