From September 2018, we are launching the new ACCA Qualification which means that our exam names and levels are changing. This means the Knowledge level will be known as Applied Knowledge, Skills level will become Applied Skills and the Professional level will be Strategic Professional.

If you are booking and taking exams for the September exam session, you will be taking exams under the new ACCA Qualification. Following the publication of June exam results, all of your existing exam results and exemptions will be converted to the new Qualification.
