May. New CBE centres in the Baltic States (Latvia and Lithuania)
PwC Lithuania and PwC Latvia have become the ACCA’s licensed centres for computer-based exams (CBE). PwC has become the first institution in the Baltic States offering on-demand exams for ACCA students.
The licensed CBE statuses have been awarded following the formal monitoring visits by ACCA, confirming that PwC’s facilities offer excellent level of comfort for ACCA students and secure the fairness of exam results.
Rimvydas Jogela, PwC Lithuania’s Partner, said: “As an organisation which aims to deliver excellence in every aspect of our activity we are proud to meet ACCA’s highest standards for exam administration. Offering on-demand exams complete the range of qualification services available to our clients, allowing them to have both tuition and assessment at one spot. Such educational improvement will create a long term value to our company and to finance profession in the region.”
On-demand exams provide greater flexibility for students to choose the place and time of examination; students are not restricted to June and December paper-based exam sessions only. Additionally, they get an instant result feedback at the end of the exam. The result is then transferred to student’s ACCA account within 72 hours. CBEs are available for the first three papers of the ACCA Qualification, as well as for the first seven papers within the Foundations in Accountancy suite of awards.
Nataliya Vovchuk, Head of ACCA Ukraine, Baltic and Caucasus States, said: “In a drive towards digitalisation of learning and assessment experience of students this becomes very important contribution in the region. PwC is the first institution to offer on-demand exams for ACCA students in the Baltic States, giving them greater degree of flexibility. What is more important, it allows saving substantial amount of time at early stages of ACCA progression – a benefit highly valued by young ambitious professionals. ACCA’s aim is to offer best service to people of application, ability and ambition around the world who seek a rewarding career in accountancy, finance and management.”
