Centres worldwide

ACCA operates over 400 examination centres in more than 170 countries at each examination session. Please note that the availability of examination centres is subject to change.

Special exam centres can be arranged for students with additional requirements, where appropriate.

How it works

When you log in to your MyACCA and choose ‘exam entry’, you will then select the country you want to sit your exam in. This will provide you with a list of available exam centres within that country, for that particular exam session.

Special exam centres

For June and December exam sessions (not March and September sessions), it is possible to arrange for paper-based exams to be attempted at centres other than those listed in the exam centre database. These exam centres are referred to as “unlisted special centres”. 

If you would like to make a request to sit your examination at an “unlisted special centre” you must submit your request and full examination entry details to us, by the early entry closing date, by emailing with “Centre not listed” as your subject field.

It is only possible for ACCA to arrange “unlisted special centres” if we are satisfied that the same standards of facilities and invigilation that exist at our regular centres will be available. If it is not possible for us to arrange an exam sitting at the location you have requested, you will be offered the opportunity to sit your exams at the nearest exam centre. You will then receive an email confirming your exam entry and any payment instructions that are required from you.

Special exam centre fees

Please note, if you are taking examinations at either a special centre or an unlisted special centre you will be required to pay any additional local invigilation and accommodation fees involved. These fees are normally paid direct to the Exam Supervisor in advance of the exam date.
