FAQ:

Computer-based exams (CBE) have been developed by ACCA as part of our overall e-business strategy, providing learning and assessment online and continuing to offer students access, opportunity and flexibility through the ACCA brand.

ACCA was the first professional body to introduce computer-based examinations in 1998.

Computer-based exams (CBEs) are available for the first seven papers (not the options papers) within the Foundations in Accountancy suite of awards and AB, MA, FA and LW (English and Global) from the ACCA Qualification.

Benefits of CBE

Offering CBEs provides the following benefits to students:
Flexibility - Students are not restricted to paper-based exam sessions as CBEs can be sat at any time of the year. CBE also offers flexibility for re-sits which can be taken at any time. There is no restriction on the number of times a student can re-sit exams by CBE.

  • Instant result - The student's result is displayed on the computer screen at the end of the exam.
  • Results - Once the student's result has been uploaded by the CBE centre it is transferred to the student's ACCA account within 72 hours.

  • Students choose ECCS as their preferred TEST centre offering the exam(s) they wish to sit by CBE.
  • When arranging bookings with the CBE centre, the exams staff will check the identity of the students against their ACCA registration cards and will also check the eligibility of the students to take the exam(s) they wish to sit.
  • Students pay the CBE centre directly for the exams.
  • Prior to the exam, the CBE centre will set up time-restricted access to the exams for the students. (The exam must be sat on the scheduled date and time). 
  • On the day of the exam, the students' identity is checked by the invigilator, further validity and eligibility checks are carried out, and then the invigilator instructions will be read out.
  • Students are then asked to start the exam software and input validation details into the software. This will further check their identity and eligibility to sit the exams.
  • Instruction screens will be displayed and the students may then start the exam when advised to do so by the invigilator.
  • Once the exam is started, the questions are displayed on screen and the answers are input directly onto the CBE software.
  • Upon completion of the exam, the final percentage score is calculated and displayed on screen.
  • Students will be asked to print a copy of the Provisional Result Notification; this copy is retained by the students for their records.
  • The CBE centre uploads the results to the CBE system and these will be transferred to the students' accounts with ACCA within 72 hours.

The types of questions contained in the exams are:

  • Multiple choice - where you are required to choose one answer from a list of options by clicking on the appropriate 'radio button'.
  • Multiple response - where you are required to select more than one response from the options provided by clicking the appropriate tick boxes.
  • Multiple response matching - where you are required to select a response to a number of related statements by clicking on the 'radio button' which corresponds to the appropriate response for each statement.
  • Number entry - where you are required to key in a numerical response to the question.
