The global body for professional accountants

An examination attendance docket will be made available to all students who have entered to attempt ACCA examinations. The docket will be available to download from myACCA around two weeks after standard entry closes. This includes a timetable of all the exams that you are entered for; details of the desk that has been assigned to you for each paper; and the address of your exam centre.

If you are not completely sure of the location of the centre, how to get there or how long it may take you, make sure you rehearse your route before the day of the exam. Please remember that exams may start at peak times so you should allow for rush-hour traffic and possible hold-ups.

You should take your docket to the examination centre for each exam being attempted as it will ensure your entry to the exam. You must sit at the desk detailed on your docket. This will ensure that you are registered as being in attendance for that exam.

The docket will be collected by the supervisor during the exam to record your attendance. If you have any other exams during the session, the docket will be returned to you. If it is your last exam of the session, the docket will be retained for our records.

The examination attendance docket also details important exam regulations and guidelines. You should read these carefully to familiarise yourself with the exam procedure and what equipment you are allowed to take with you into the exams. These regulations are reproduced regularly in the notice board section of Student Accountant.

Please take some form of official photographic ID, such as a passport, driving licence or national identity card. This will be checked during the exam together with your examination attendance docket to verify your identity. If you are unable to prove your identity your candidate answer booklet(s) may not be marked. Please note that you are only permitted to attempt the paper(s) shown and chosen by you.

You should try to arrive at the examination centre about 30 minutes before the start of the exam. This will give you time to relax and prepare yourself. If you are sitting a three-hour exam, you will be given an additional 15-minute reading and planning time allowance. However, you should still be at your desk at the time stated on your docket.
