Hiya guys,

Could anyone shed me some light about what exams are included in the three levels? At the moment, all i know is PLB is in level 2.
Also will you give full term like PLB is Preparing Ledger Blances and Initial Trial Balance. Thank you.

    THe PLB is the only exam at Foundation level.

    At Intermediate you do FRA (maintaining financial records & preparing accounts) & ECR (Recording & evaluating costs & revenues)

    At technician I think there are 3 compulsory exams (someone will correct me on this!!)
    DFS (Drafting financial statements)
    PEV (Management of performance & enhancement of value)
    BTC (Preparing business taxation computations)

    Hope this helps!

    3/4's right Lydi it's DFS, PEV & PCR (Contributing to the Planning and Control of Resources) these are compulsory central exams. Then you have to choose a further 2 optional units from BTC, PTC (personal taxation), Auditing and Cash management :001_smile:
