Does it really matter at the end of it? (Been offered ACCA, not sure whether to take it)

Depends, if you want to move abroad ACCA is better while if you want to stay in the UK, the ACA is generally considered more prestigious (though on average a higher proportion of ACAS are B4 qualified than ACCAs which highly skews salary figures out of a meaningful range).

It also depends if you're training in industry or in public practice. If the latter, ACCA is kind of weird

Nowadays they're very similar. You can work abroad with both. ACA just has the prestige factor which is absent in ACCA.

It's not weird to do ACCA in practice. In fact, many people do.

At the end of the day, most job offers post qualifying will simply request a 'Qualified Accountant' and you'll find very few (if any) that demand either ACA only or ACCA only.

ACA has always been above ACCA
ACCA is more business focused than ACA

Both can be used internationally but ACCA is more recognised there
Either way if you get the qual no one really cares unless you join the top 10 firms who all want ACA. But the stigma is going since ACA is incorporating elements of ACCA business focus
