Exam language banks

ACCA’s exam language banks have been developed in collaboration with the British Council to help you create exam answers that are clear and coherent, allowing markers to follow your answers easily.

Each bank covers a language function that is common across ACCA exams at Applied Skills and Strategic Professional and includes:

  • An introduction to the language function and how it is used in ACCA exams
  • Useful words and phrases, illustrated with example wording from answers to past ACCA exams
  • Sample answers showing how to combine words and phrases into fuller answers

If you find it difficult to produce written answers, referring to the exam language banks as part of your question practice can help you get comfortable with using these words and phrases before sitting your exam.
