The global body for professional accountants

The specimen exam indicates how the paper will be assessed, structured and the likely style and range of questions that could be asked. Any student preparing to take this exam should familiarise themselves with the exam style.

The specimen exam can be downloaded from the 'Related documents' section of this page.

Please note the following: 

  • All  specimen exam questions and solutions are the copyright of ACCA and can only be used for classroom and student use in preparation for their ACCA exams. They cannot be published in any form (paper or soft copy), or sold for profit in any way, without first gaining the express permission of ACCA. Nor can they be used as examinations, in whole or in part, by other institutions or awarding bodies.
  • Questions included in the  specimen computer-based exam are similar to those in the equivalent paper-based  specimen exam. Therefore the given rationale for each answer in the paper-based specimen should also be relevant for questions within the  specimen computer based exam. There is also a computer based  specimen exam which is a useful revision tool for students sitting CBEs.
  • You may need to have a copy of the formulae sheet and maths tables available when completing the specimen exam.
