Changes to the ACCA Qualification
To ensure the ACCA Qualification continues to evolve and adapt to the latest business and accounting sector needs it will, from June 2010, undergo development and updating rather than any major structural changes.
The syllabuses and study guides, including a summary of the main changes to these syllabuses, are now available for each individual examination paper by following the links to each individual paper as follows. http://www.accaglobal.com/students/acca/exams/
The June 2010 Student Accountant magazine also has a comprehensive article on the changes including a table on the impact on each paper and the time frames involved.
