Chasing exemptions for ACCA

orient55 Registered Posts: 4 New contributor 🐸

Just wondering if someone has experienced similar problem... As I wish to get exemptions for ACCA I have to show my AAT statement of achievement with completed Diploma Level. The deadline for sending this to ACCA is 29th Feb. I have missed that as my project for Unit10 hasn't been verified by AAT (external verifier) yet even though I have finished it and submitted to my college a month ago.

Now I don't know whether it make sense to start my ACCA classes from F4 above (and pay for them) if I am not sure I will get the exemptions. ACCA doesn't guarantee it as I have missed the official deadline.

Please share your experience if you've (or someone you know) been through something similar.

    If you don't get your exemptions in time you will have to pay for F1, 2 and 3 before you can sit F4. You also won't be able to enter for any other exams as there is a maximum sitting of 4. I believe (though not know for sure) that you will still have to pay the exam fee for your exemptions again so it could end up costing you a lot of money.

    You may be better to get the exemptions and enter for exams in December.

    Thanks for completing the list of problems I might have :confused1: It's probably better to know what the situation is...

    I absolutely hate the idea that I would have to wait long 6 months (because my work is lying somewhere and the appropriate person didn't find time to tick it off - literally ), but if I go ahead with my studies now I may end up paying a lot and maybe would have to wait till December anyway...
