What are the key points of ACCA’s exemption policy?
An exemption will only be awarded when ACCA is completely satisfied that it matches a student’s prior learning, and will ensure that the student has an equivalent level of knowledge to students who have completed the same exam of the ACCA Qualification by examination.
The key points of ACCA’s exemption regulations, which allow us to fulfil these requirements, are:
- exemption is only awarded on the basis of qualifications, and cannot be considered on the basis of work experience
- exemption is only awarded on the basis of qualifications which contain relevant content to any of the Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams of the ACCA Qualification
- to preserve the ownership of the ACCA Qualification and ensure that all students share a common experience, no exemptions are awarded for the Strategic Professional exams.
