ACCA exemptions

Hi all

I've searched the forum to no avail. I'm trying to find out the exemptions I'd receive if I chose ACCA being AAT qualified. Since the new syllabus has been implemented it's hard to work it out. I guess it may depend on what optional papers I chose, I did the tax papers.

Any help appreciated.

Cheers

    Optional papers make no difference.

    You are exempted from F1, F2 and F3 by having technician regardless of which options you chose.

    However having said that you will be glad of doing the tax papers when you get to the business tax paper!

    Thanks, I also confirmed via ACCA.

    I was a little disappointed to find only 3 papers are exempt, as much as the AAT is a good course before going onto chartered I'd have rather done ACCA straight after A Levels than AAT. I'd have certainly been at least half way through by now!

    It can be longer than 2 years. In fact it'd be some going to do 3 every 6 months. I plan on doing around 2 every 6 months so I'm looking realistically at 3 years to have them 11 papers complete.

    You cannot choose your exemptions.
