Exam centres

Centres worldwide

When you take one of our session based exams, you'll sit at one of our exam centres. ACCA operates over 400 exam centres in more than 140 countries, with the majority of these centres being available during our four exam sessions taking place in March, June, September and December.

Working with our partners, you can expect a professional and consistent exam experience at all of our exam centres regardless of your location.

Selecting your exam centre

When you book for a session based exam, you are asked where you would like to take the exam. The majority of our centres are available at all four exam sessions and do not require any additional venue fees.  

Special centres

We also run exam centres in areas with low student populations, as we endeavour to provide local access to sitting exams for as many students as possible.  These are called special centres and students are required to pay additional fees to cover the costs of providing this provision, such as venue hire and invigiliation charges.  Students are notified of these fees in advance of the exam.

There are two types of special centres, listed and unlisted centres.

Listed special centres

Students are able to book these centres directly from the online booking system.  We aim to provide these centres for paper/cbe exams in all four exam sessions, however this is not always possible due to cost, resourcing or other factors.  Please check the exam booking system for session availability in your desired location.
