The CBE Practice Platform is a free on-demand resource where you can practice using the live exam format, layout and functionality. The platform contains ACCA specimen and past exam content and you have the ability to self-mark your answers within the platform using marking guides and sample answers. It also allows you to track your performance giving you confidence that you are exam ready.

Please note there are currently two or three temporary, minor differences between the Practice Platform and the live exam software. These are nothing to worry about, and there is an extra instruction screen in the exams contained within the Practice Platform which explains what these differences are. We’ve also summarised them in a PDF.
