Does your subscription with the ACCA as a student have to be active at the time you are submitting your OBU RAP? I mean, do you need to pay for the suscription fee and keep your registration active in the year you are submitting the RAP?
Many thanks!January 5, 2017 at 8:00 am
Yes. It is a degree based partly on your ACCA exam records and if you are not up to date with your subscription you cannot be awarded it.January 5, 2017 at 4:10 pm
Thank you for your reply!January 16, 2017 at 12:00 pm

Hi guys, This is Talha, i need some assistance of yours if anyone can guide please.
Actually i’ve passed all papers till F9, till June 2014 except F4, and passed F4 in Dec 2014.
Now am I eligible to get OBU degree or not?
Thanking you all in advance.
Regards.January 26, 2017 at 8:08 pm
my o level certificate with a credit in english language meets obu requirements, please how do i submit it to acca?January 27, 2017 at 10:56 am
Contact the ACCA OBU office at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will probably be able to tell you.January 27, 2017 at 8:12 pm
ok thanksFebruary 16, 2017 at 6:19 pm
I registered with ACCA back in 2001 but stopped my studies when I had children, I have now resumed my studies and with 1 paper that was still valid I have now completed f1 f3 and f4.
Because I was registered with ACCA for over 10 years does it mean there is no way for me to complete my obuFebruary 16, 2017 at 7:45 pm
Sadly I rather think as you have exceeded the 10 years allowed. However I do think this rule works against women in your position. If you live in the UK I think you do have a case for sex discrimination. It is up to you if yo want to challenge ACCE and OBU on this – both reckon they apply equal opportunities. Your case would be extremely strong if you not only had children but worked full -time as you could argue how could you possibly do a degree as well while fulfilling all the requirements the other two put on you?February 17, 2017 at 12:07 pm
Must I pay my annual subscription before I can attain the degree, or can I pay later. Having financial issues at the moment.February 17, 2017 at 5:24 pm
Your ACCA subscription must be up to date when you submit your project and you will also have to pay the GBP 250 submissions fee when uploading otherwise your work cannot be marked.March 6, 2017 at 2:28 pm
Just a recap.
-It’s not enough to be ‘opted in’ in myacca.
-In addition to be ‘opted in’, a candidate must hold a suitable proof of proficiency in English language.
-The above applies also to UK, Irish, NZ, etc. nationals.
Is the above correct?March 7, 2017 at 12:52 pm
Yes I think you have very neatly summed up the situation so many thanks. 😀
Additionally the post a few above also applies – you must be up to date with your ACCA subscription. (Someone recently also asked if they could submit and pay the fee at a later date -the answer is no – there is no facility for effectively having a ‘loan’ and any system problems in payment after submitting would mean the result would be withheld pending full payment)March 15, 2017 at 6:43 am
just a few questions.
1.where should i send my english language proficiency certificate as a proof? i have an IELTS so am i supposed to email to oxford brooks or ACCA?
2. i have passed 11 acca papers so do i actually need to show proficiency certificate or something?
3.what is the last date to show english language proof for period 34?
sorry if im asking these questions again if you have already answered this any where before.
best regardsMarch 15, 2017 at 6:52 am
also additional note, i passed the paper f4 on december 2014 session . so would that qualify as english language proficiency?March 15, 2017 at 9:58 am
The problem we have on Open Tuition is that ACCA and OBU tend to change their requirements and we find it difficult to keep up with the subtle changes when it comes to admin procedures.
I myself will readily put my hands up and say I am competent to deal with most questions on academic approach and content on most RAP topics (there are a few I feel are outside my comfort zone in terms of lack of knowledge) however on the background eligibility rules I have distinct gaps!
I am sorry this is one of them. Your English appears fine to me but for accurate information you really need to contact the ACCA/OBU office at email@example.com
You should get an answer promptly if you do it now before the results are released otherwise it is likely to take much longer to get a reply from 22 March onwards.March 15, 2017 at 12:58 pm
ok thank you so much
