Ive just finished btc/ptc and completed units 8,9 and 11. (currently doing project)

I want to go on to ACA and gain excemption.
For some excemptions it states that you need to of complete tehnician level.

Does this mean that as ive only completed 2 out of the 4 choices that i wont get excempt.!!!

    I know that for CIMA you have to have done all units, including your project, and received your certificate before they will grant you exemptions.

    Not too sure about ACCA but i should imagine its all the same, you haven't realy completed the level until you get your certificate.

    Our tutors told us we had to do all units to get exemptions from ACA/ACCA/CIMA, sorry.
    Our tutors were not the best so they maybe wrong.
    I suggest having a look at the ACCA website

    It should tell you there or possibly contact them and ask.

    I can confirm that to get exemptions from F1, 2 and 3 of ACCA you only need to have completed technician, it doesn't matter which optional units you have done.

    I was under the impression that you gained exemption by passing all the units that you were listed to take, usually only 2 options. Not that you had to do all choice levels as well.

    I think bluewednesday is right I dont think you have to do everything on all units in tech just pass what you have to.

    After completing AAT Technician you will be exempt from these ACA Exams:
    • Business and Finance
    • Management Information
    If you pass Unit 11 (Industry, Practice and Commerece) you will be exempt from
    • Accounting
    If you pass Unit 17 (Implementing Audit Procedures) you will be exempt from
    • Assurance
    And if you pass both Units 18 (Business Tax) and Unit 19 (Personal Tax) you will gain exemptions from
    • Principles of Taxation

    Therefore if you do three of the four optional papers at AAT (there is no exemption for Unit 15 CMCC) you will have 5 less exams to sit. This only leaves one exam at the knowledge level.

    Also, you can sit a Financial Accounts top-up paper that will mean you don't have to sit the full Financial Accounting paper at the application level.

    I hope this helps; more information can be found at http://www.icaew.com/index.cfm?route=150507
