Computer-based exams (CBEs) are available for the first seven papers (not the options papers) within the Foundations in Accountancy suite of awards and the Knowledge level of the ACCA Qualification.
Offering CBEs provides the following benefits to students:
- Flexibility - Students are not restricted to June and December paper-based exam sessions as CBEs can be sat at any time of the year. CBE also offers flexibility for re-sits which can be taken at any time. There is no restriction on the number of times a student can re-sit exams by CBE.
- Instant result - The student's result is displayed on the computer screen at the end of the exam.
- Results - Once the student's result has been uploaded by the CBE centre it is transferred to the student's ACCA account within 72 hours.
