Transfering from CAT to ACCA
The ACCA Qualification is your passport to reaching the highest levels in any organisation – and as a CAT graduate you have the knowledge, skills and practical experience to get off to a flying start.
You will be automatically transferred to the ACCA Qualification register when you have successfully completed your CAT exams, unless you chose not to select this option when you originally registered as a CAT student. You will be awarded exemption from the Knowledge module of the Fundamentals Level (F1, F2 and F3) and will not be charged an additional registration fee or exemption fees.
You can still opt in for automatic transfer to the ACCA Qualification providing that you put your request in writing to ACCA Connect before sitting your final CAT exams. If you did not opt for an automatic transfer to the ACCA Qualification and wish to continue with the ACCA Qualification exams, you will need to submit an ACCA Qualification registration form and pay the relevant registration fee.
You can also transfer to ACCA as soon as finishing the first 5 papers of CAT, yet you will not be granted any exemption of ACCA.
Should you own any degree that could earn you exemption of all 9 papers of CAT and 1-year relevant practical experience, you can apply for Direct Entry as a Certified Accounting Technician by submitting the Competence Summary form with T1 or T2 form (see Related Documents). Normally Vietnamese university graduates of accounting, auditing major can get exemption of all CAT's papers.
If you want to apply for CAT status after completing all exam papers, you have to submit the Competence Summary form with T3 form (see Related Documents).
Once transferred to the ACCA Qualification register, you will be subject to the Bye Laws, rules and regulations applicable to ACCA Qualification students, details of which will be sent to you on transfer.
