Can I Postpone my Acca exam booking?

Prior to the ACCA standard entry deadline - You can certainly postpone your ACCA exam booking. You need to log in to your Myacca and cancel your exam booking. The exam fees paid will be credited back to your MyACCA, which you can use for future exams.

Post-Standard entry deadline: Exam bookings cannot be cancelled. However, if you are unable to sit the exam due to illness or another student’s conduct, you may request a review by the Examining Board. The Examining Board will consider each case on its own merits and decide whether or not to allow a resit or refund. Write to students@accaglobal.com with proof of illness.

Centre based exams or home based exams

The decision of whether to take the home or centre based exams for ACCA should be based on the individual's preference and work/personal schedule.

The home-based exams offer more flexibility as they can be taken at any time and location that is convenient for the candidate. However, the centre-based exams are offered at specific times and locations, so candidates may need to travel in order to attend.
