This means that you may not have to take all of the exams in the Foundation level of the ACCA Qualification and you can start your studies at the right level.

You may enter details of your qualification in the ACCA Exemption Calculator  and check the number of exemptions you may be entitled to. You will need to pay a fee for each paper exempted. Exemptions are charged at the early exam entry fee.

Special exemption fee waiver offers for CIMA, CA and AAT and CMA Passed Finalists and University of London undergraduate programme completed students!
