Alan Hatfield, ACCA executive director – Strategy and Development, has confirmed that the ACCA’s June 2020 Exams have been cancelled worldwide. The COVID-19 impacts are being felt by all sectors and these accounting exams have not been spared.
At this time, all levels of exams are being reviewed to see if alternative arrangements can be made for future assessment periods. Both paper based and computer based exams have been cancelled because exam testing centers around the world are closed. As a result, students will be issued with exam fee credits for exams that they have already booked. However, there is the option to postpone for a future sitting.
In a recent message published on the ACCA Global website Mr. Hatfield states, “Our key priority is to ensure and support your health and safety and we’re closely following government and official guidelines. We know that you’d like clarity to help you progress through the ACCA exams. ”
He further stated that student safety and wellbeing are paramount and that the ACCA “wants to do the right thing.” Mr. Hatfield also advised students that although it may be difficult to stay motivated, time spent studying will be beneficial.
For further information, students are encouraged to visit the June 2020 Exams – Frequently Asked Questions. Additionally, student-related enquiries can be emailed to ACCA Connect at firstname.lastname@example.org.
