The global body for professional accountants


The specimen exams indicate 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.

Full specimens have been produced for the main exams, and our examining teams have also put together some sample questions to illustrate the new style of exam for all other versions.
