ACCA 'paper' papers to be withdrawn
24 May 2017
ACCA has unveiled the formal timetable for the withdraw paper exams for the F5-F9 sessions.
Delegates to the ACCA Global Learning Providers’ Conference were told that with the exception of India, countries who launched CBE sessions in September and December 2016 will have their final paper exams in December this year. That means, as of March 2018 there will be full F5-F9 CBE centre coverage across the UK, Ireland, Pakistan, China, Czech Republic, Hungry, Slovakia, UEA, and Sri Lanka.
This news comes as some countries haven’t started to offer CBEs! Countries offering CBEs for the first (such as Poland, Vietnam and Trinidad) this June will have their last paper-based exams in March 2018.
Countries launching session CBEs in September 2017 have been confirmed and students are booking these exams in places like Barbados, Singapore and South Africa. These markets will operate paper-based exams until June 2018.
ACCA has promised that it will replicate the paper exam centre network, and is working with the British Council to ensure students get the ‘same experience’.
ACCA told conference that from June 2019 F5-F9 paper exams will not be available anywhere in the world.
