ACCA Exemptions?

LaurenNicholls91LaurenNicholls91 GlasgowRegistered Posts: 1

I'm qualified up to AAT level 3 and am looking to commence ACCA. Can anyone tell me if level 3 provides any exemptions for ACCA? If so, what are they?

    Hi Lauren
    I doubt you can get an exemption being just AAT level 3 qualified. You'll need to finish level 4 then you can get the exemptions which is only the F papers (F1-F3).

    If you go into the ACCA exemptions calculator


    It says "There are no course exemptions for this qualification. Your course does however allow you to register for the ACCA Qualification."

    Level 4 gets you exemptions from the first 3 papers of ACCA (F1-F3), and there was a myth I heard at college about getting exemption from F6 if you took BTAX and PTAX at level 4, but a myth is all that seems to be. xD
