AAT to ACCA question

Can I start ACCA without A levels, if i have completed the Professional Diploma in Accounting (Level 4)?

    Hi Daniel,

    Have you tried searching the ACCA website? Have you tried contacting ACCA?

    This may be of interest to you: AAT to ACCA

    In particular, read the section entitled "What Exemptions Do I Get?"

    All from a simple search of the ACCA website!

    Kind regards,

    Yes, I did check the ACCA website and it says you need GCSE's & A levels, or a level 4 qualification. My question is does the AAT Professional Diploma count as a level 4?

    Doesn't look like you looked at ACCA's website properly.
    If you complete AAT you can start ACCA and you will be exempt from few papers as well.

    @daniel_123456 if you've completed all levels of AAT, you can move on to ACCA. You'll be exempt from the first three F papers (F1 - F3).

    I too have no A levels or degree and took this route.
