Keep on top of exam and subscription fee deadlines with these key dates from the ACCA calendar.

From 2016 we are running four exam sessions a year at all our exam centres in March, June, September and December. 

This means you'll have even greater flexibility and choice when planning your studies and our new exam planner tool will help you do just that.

The new exam calendar provides you with more opportunities to:

  • Spread your workload and maximise the chances of success
  • Structure your studies so you can take additional exams over a calendar year and move faster on your journey to membership
  • Take any potential resits sooner and progress through the exams quicker

Our new exam entry system will also allow you to enter for two exam sessions at once, so you can always take advantage of the cheapest exam fees.

Annual subscription

close/open

The annual subscription fee is due by 1st January each year. Payment can be made via myACCA

Please note that only exams F4-P7 (limited variants) will be available during the March and September exam sessions. All variants will be available during the June and December exam sessions.

The majority of Foundations level, F1-3, F4 English and F4 Global exams are available as on-demand computer based exams (CBE) which provide students even greater flexibility and convenience. For more information on how to enter for these exams, please visit our CBE section
