Covid-19 exam information

Our key priority is to ensure health and safety while our students continue their ACCA journey during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we’re working hard with local governments around the world to ensure that exam centres operate safely.

Where local restrictions mean that it is not possible to take an exam at a centre, we have been working with our exam partners to offer the opportunity to take exams using remote invigilation.

You can find the latest information on centre availability below, along with further links to important information about centre and remote exams.
