Foundations in Accountancy
Transitional arrangements for new students, current CAT and MSER students
07 Jan 2011
As you may know, ACCA is to launch a new suite of awards collectively referred to as Foundations in Accountancy.
Students will be able to register on Foundations in Accountancy from January 2011, and the first paper and computer-based exams will be first examined in December 2011.
Existing CAT and MSER students will be transferred over to Foundations in Accountancy (depending on their June 2011 exam results and which qualification they have stated they wish to transfer to) in August 2011.
However, for those students who wish to progress with their studies as soon as possible, we have put in place transitional arrangements to allow newly registered students taking qualifications and awards within Foundations in Accountancy to take some exams as computer-based exams between February-November 2011.
To ensure we are fair to all students, these transitional arrangements will also apply to existing CAT students and MSER students so they can take exams up until November 2011.
Access detailed information on the transitional arrangements
We will notify existing CAT and MSER students of the transitional arrangements shortly, but you may pass on this information to you students now, direct them to the website and explain the options available.
