I am completing the ACCA qualification and wish to take computer-based exams. How does that affect any attempts at paper-based exams?

How is it best to prepare for the ACCA qualification knowledge module exams?

Students should ensure that as part of their revision, they are familiar with the multiple choice style of questions as well as the wider range of objective question types, and multi task questions if taking a computer-based exam.

It is recommended that students attempt the CBE specimen exam which is available in our exam resources section.
