ACCA exemptions

Have only just found out - on Diploma route need to fulfil experiential requirement of CAT, to get exemptions for ACCA.

Totally gutted, initially started AAT on diploma route hoping to find a finance job, only project to complete now, and still no finance job.

I've wasted my time- now can't progress further until I get some experience - no job - no experience, no experience - no further educational progress - no job.

Any one else in the same situation::huh:

    have you though about volunteering, not quite sure if that counts though.

    i am sure someone of more knowledge will be along shortly to hopefully shed more light on this.

    Hi, i emailed acca not long ago to enquire about exemptions - completion of the aat qualification gives you exemptions from f1, f2 and f3.....

    Don't give up

    Hi, don't give up.
    My first degree is in computing. But I can not find a job in IT. So I changed my subject to accounting. I started my studying AAT last July. And four months later, I found a volunteering job in Big Issue. I did credit control. That was very helpful. One month later, I got a temp job. Although only one week, it was very helpful for your job hunting. Two months later, I got a job offer about financial clerk, that was a permanent job in a university. Now I enjoy my job very much.
    So don't give up. Keep going. Try to find a volunteering job.

    Good Luck.
