ACCA Applied Skills (Weekend course, June 2019 Sitting)
ACCA is suitable for those who would like a career in finance, business or accountancy, who wish to become a Chartered Certified Accountant. It takes around three to four years to complete the full qualification. You’ll learn both practical and technical skills to equip you for a future in business.
Subjects can be sat in any order. Students can sit up to four subjects in one exam sitting and a maximum of eight per year. You can overlap with Applied Knowledge as long as this level is being completed.
Applied Skills exams
LW is available as a Computer Based Exam (CBE) at Kaplan centres all year round and also at other ACCA approved centres. Both written and computer based versions of the LW exam are two hours long with no reading time. ENG and GLO versions of the exam are only examined by CBE in the UK.
With the exception of LW, exams for the Applied Skills subjects are available as Session CBEs sat at ACCA centres and there are four exam sittings per year. Find out more about exam entry dates.
In the UK, Applied Skills subjects are only examined by Session CBE. In some countries the subjects are still also available as Paper Based Exams (PBE) which take place at the same time as the Session CBE. Find out more about Session CBEs in your location.
Session CBEs are three hours 20 minutes long plus up to 10 minutes to read the pre-exam instructions. PBEs are three hours long with 15 minutes reading time. Find out more about the CBE exam format.
The pass mark for all subjects is 50%.
