@abdullahzafar. The only scenario in which you can opt back to the degree scheme is if you haven’t sat F7 – F9 papers and you prove your English language proficiency before passing F7, F8 and F9.
AnnaAugust 16, 2014 at 10:32 pm
So this is obviously not applicable to people who have passed f4 before it turns to cbe right? I mean if a person passed f4 like 2 years ago theirs will be accepted as a proof of proficiency in English right?August 17, 2014 at 10:42 am
@sameed Yes, that’s correct. Students who have already passed F4 (including the June 2014 sitting) don’t need to worry about this new change.August 26, 2014 at 11:15 pm
Hello Anna can you please help me to understand the English Language Requirements for Oxford Brookes BSc (Hons) Applied Accounting ? I have checked the ACCA website and what I have found is this along with other english language qualifications:
ACCA qualification paper F4 – Corporate and Business Law (last EP acceptable
session June 2014)
Internally assessed ACCA Paper 1.3 or F4 (2007 syllabus)
CAT – (Technician Graduate) – last EP acceptable session June 2011, from Dec
2011 FIA does not meet EP.
As I have completed my CAT qualification in june 2011, should not my CAT qualification be sufficient for the english language requirements for OBU degree under that statement ?
The link is in here http://www.accaglobal.com/content/dam/ACCA_National/uk/stu/ELR-OXB-31-5-2014.pdf If u kindly check the very last page of this link you will see that information.
I am so confused, I have sent mail couple of times to the ACCA connect just to clarify the matter but all they replied me is “I regret to inform you that CAT is not a relevant English Language qualification” I am not really getting it.
KhanAugust 27, 2014 at 1:03 pm
@khan1200. In your message you copied in, it actually states that CAT is only acceptable if you completed it by June 2011. So if you are saying that you have completed it by then, then I am not sure what the issue is. Maybe contact ACCA via this chat room, maybe thirt time will be lucky 🙂 https://acca.whoson.com/chat/chatstart.aspx?domain=www.accaglobal.com&SID=1

I am acca affiliate now, earlier when i was a student i was already opted into BSc hons as there was a sentence written that you are opted into BSc.
I just want to ask i can’t see any sentences like these anymore, how do i check if i am currently opted in? as i am planning to submit my project in period 29August 27, 2014 at 6:08 pm
Dear Anna they have solved the issue. Thanks for your kind cooperation.August 27, 2014 at 9:41 pm
@khan1200 That is fantastic news!August 27, 2014 at 9:46 pm
Hi @captmario Your OBU status should be mentioned somewhere on your myACCA dashboard. If you can’t locate it, you can always contact ACCA directly via email or via their chat room (https://acca.whoson.com/chat/chatstart.aspx?domain=www.accaglobal.com&SID=1) and they will confirm the status for you.
AnnaAugust 28, 2014 at 9:46 am
It was mentioned earlier, however it’s been a while since i have seen such statement now. So provided i’m planning to submit my project this time, i just want to ensure i am still opted in.
I will contact ACCA then, thanksAugust 28, 2014 at 1:07 pm
@captmario If you haven’t opted out there shouldn’t be any reason why you can’t submit provided you fulfil the rest of the eligibility criteria. I take it you haven’t exceeded (or won’t have exceeded) the 10 year limit by the time the Period 29 submission window opens in November?September 2, 2014 at 8:43 pm
Hi everyone am new!
I will be writing my f1,f2,f3 exams come this December. I recently read an article that says that credits for the award of degree at Oxford Brookes University is gathered from f4 up to f9 .However, at some point I also read that one can opt in at f7.
My question is,why shouldn’t I deliberately opt in at f7 instead of at f4 which portends more exams hence more risks of failing?September 4, 2014 at 10:02 am
@donald your honours classification for your degree is only based on the average of papers passed from F4 to F9 so there is no difference when you opt in.
You are probably already opted in by default anyway. We have many posts on here about students who opted out then being too late to opt in – so leave well alone – if you are in stay in to avoid any future problemsSeptember 7, 2014 at 12:52 pm
If one opted for the OBU and the marks are at the range of 50s from f4 to f9 what happens thenSeptember 7, 2014 at 7:04 pm
@nacnac Please see page 14 of the Information Pack:
If your average for papers F4 to F9 is at least 54 and you pass your RAP (regardless of grade) you will get a Lower second class Honours – a 2.2
If your average is 53 marks then you will need a pass grade of A or B in your RAP to get a 2.2 as a C grade RAP would result in a 3rd Class honours degree
Any average marks lower than an average of 53 will mean 3rd Class honours (regardless of the pass grade you got for the RAP)
Obviously you only get the degree if you pass the RAP by your 3rd attemptSeptember 18, 2014 at 9:11 am
i was told last year that i can not submit my RAP with OBU because the time i registered for has elapsed. what is the position now.
henrySeptember 18, 2014 at 9:55 am
@henry mulenga Are you referring to the submission window or personal eligibility?
If it is10 or more years since you registered with ACCA or had passed F7/8/9 before opting into the OBU programme you are not eligible as those are still the ACCA/OBU rules.
If however you are referring to the submission window this opens on 1st NovSeptember 18, 2014 at 5:07 pm
am referring to personal eligibility. i registered ACCA in 2002September 18, 2014 at 7:50 pm
The BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting degree has a 10 year deadline starting from a student’s start date with ACCA. As this has expired in your case, then unfortunately you are no longer eligible to complete the degree.
AnnaSeptember 24, 2014 at 3:21 pm
i completed FIA june 2014. and now F4 exam format is changed.
I gave IELTS exam last year june 2013. and i got overall 6 band. listening 5.5 reading 5.5 writing 5.5 and speaking 7. would it help me or i must do again IELTS.September 26, 2014 at 12:10 pm
I read the 2014/2015 pack and in there, it was stated that “any students who have successfully passed Paper F4 on or before June
2014 will continue to be able to use this as proof of English proficiency.”
The rule therefore apply to those sitting F4 in December 2014 and beyond.October 24, 2014 at 12:03 pm
6 overall band is enough for eligibility for proficiency in English??December 13, 2014 at 12:33 pm
I would like to ask that,
We needed to presentation for OBU or just submit our work will do?December 19, 2014 at 9:16 am
According to the rules for OBU, you would need to make a presentation to your mentor before you can submit your project. Your mentor will also be required to confirm that you have made a presentation.
Your submitted documents will include the PPT slides you have used. I know some students skip the actual presentation altogether, but I think it holds immense educational value, and you should definitely consider making one!

Thank you so much…
Do you think that is better to take OBU or it will be same if I do not take it?
