The Applied skills level helps you develop the effective finance skills needed by all professional accountants – testing your practical knowledge across six examinations. This level builds on your study of previous topics to develop further understanding of key accounting areas. Complete this to become a part-qualified accountant.
The Applied Skills level contains 6 modules. Corporate and Business Law can be sat at any time, whereas the remaining 5 modules are usually examined in one of four sittings a year: March, June, September and December.
Each module will take between 45-60 hours of study. Most students spend 6-8 weeks studying each module.
Many students start the Applied Skills level by completing the Corporate and Business Law module. This exam is computer-based and on-demand. It follows a very similar pattern to the Applied Knowledge modules.
Once you have completed Law, the vast majority of students will aim to complete the remaining exams over three sittings. Nevertheless, the flexibility of the ACCA allows you to move through the qualification at a pace that suits you.
If you have graduated with a degree accredited by ACCA, you may be eligible for exemptions from both Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills.
You can check whether you are eligible and should apply for any exemptions launch on the ACCA website before you start applying.
You will learn about the role of accounting in the business environment and develop the practical skills and techniques required of an accountant.
