ACCA Syllabus and Papers
The ACCA syllabus consists of 13 papers divided into four levels:
- Knowledge - 3 papers
- Skills – 6 papers
- Essentials – 2 papers
- Options – 2 papers from 4
This module, which includes papers AB (F1) to FA (F3), is the starting point on your way to achieving your
ACCA qualification. Once you've passed all 3 papers, you can continue on to the ACCA Skills module.
Comprising modules LW (F4) to FM (F9), this module examines the principle technical subjects that you're expected to have an advanced understanding of. These subjects include law, taxation, auditing and financial management, financial reporting and performance management. You will develop knowledge and skills in these subject areas, reaching a level of knowledge equivalent to a Bachelor's degree.
This module is called Essentials as it will provide you with the specialised skills and techniques required to become an expert accountant, either in a consultancy or high-level advisory role. Each of the 2 ACCA papers is assessed with a 3-hour paper-based exam.
