Hi, I just planned to study ACCA recently. As a beginner, I want to know if I can be the ACCA member with just passing all the exams, which I means I won’t find a accounting-related job even I passed the exams. I see the requirement to be a member seems to need accounting experience after taking it.
And I see the certificate require a lot of exams to pass. As I don’t have any accounting experience, I need to take all the exams, considering the too much time spent, do you have any suggestions that in what order is the best to pass the exams?

You will find a comprehensive article about exam progression here In the meantime please take a look at my exam progression article here https://opentuition.com/acca/plan-your-acca-exam-journey
If you pass all exams you can describe yourself as qualified and refer to yourself as an affiliate https://www.accaglobal.com/lk/en/affiliates.html
Affiliates CANNOT use the designation “ACCA” as that is strictly reserved for members.
As a “beginner” you should expect the qualification (14 exams) to take a minimum of 2 years and perhaps, realistically 3-4 years. Even if you can study full time, you can sit only a maximum maximum of 4 exams during each exam cycle and 8 exams over the course of a calendar year.
