Computer-based exams

You can sit computer-based exams (CBEs) at any time but you need to be a registered student and will have your student registration number.

For more information on CBEs, please click on the link in the related links list on the left-hand side of the page.

Joint Examination Schemes

If you live in one of the following countries, you can sit exams that qualify you for ACCA and the national accountancy body at the same time: Barbados, Belize, Botswana, Cambodia, Cyprus, Greece, Guyana, Jamaica, Lesotho, Malawi, Malta, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Swaziland, Trinidad and Tobago or Vietnam.

To register with the relevant Joint Examination Scheme partner as well as with ACCA, please apply online or complete a Joint Examination Scheme registration form. You can get this from your local Joint Exam Scheme office.

Registration and subscription fees

You will need to pay an initial registration fee when you apply. You will also need to pay an annual subscription fee by 1 January each year to keep your student status active.

You will be invoiced in November each year, and we’ve made it easy for you to pay your fees online via our student tool myACCA. Your annual subscription to us means we can keep providing you with the right resources and support to help you gain your ACCA membership.

Additional fees may apply to register with the relevant Joint Examination Scheme partner - please contact the Joint Exam Scheme partner for details.

Important note

If you apply to become a student with us before 8 May, you will need to pay both your initial registration fee and your annual subscription fee. This is the closing date for late exam entry for the June exams, so applying before this date means you are eligible to sit paper-based exams at both the June and December exam sessions.

Exam fees

You will also need to pay an exam entry fee for each examination that you sit.
