So I’m abit confused as to what exams I need to pass to be we to apply for a practising certificate
On the requirements it just states experience and then 2 years post experience that meet the guidelines
But I remember someone telling me you had to pass SBR uk variant and the uk variant of one of the optional exams… Where they correct?
From looking at the ACCA website I would assume I could just sit the international exam for SBR and then just sit SBL, then 2 of the optional of my choice then apply for a certificate after 2 more years?
Where can I find this information on the specific exams I have to sit?October 16, 2019 at 4:39 pm #549785adeoluomosanya

Hi, I think you have to pass both the Tax and Audit papers. There are only 4 option P papers to choose from, the other two are more relevant to Industry than public practice.
For F papers, you have to pass them all or take some exemptions if you are eligible.
I also asked google for you, please see the following link, bullet point no. 5,October 18, 2019 at 3:59 pm #550105Kim SmithKeymaster

Anthony – it clear states on the link kindly provided above:
“successfully completed the UK or Irish variants of the following ACCA exams (or equivalent from previous syllabus):
Corporate and Business Law
Strategic Business Reporting
Advanced Audit and Assurance”
Unless you are already aspiring for partnership it doesn’t matter which variants you do – you could always sit them post-qualification.May 25, 2020 at 3:01 pm #571816kayzah

I think there is a kind of confusion. There are actually two Practicing certificates:
– Practicing certificate (w/o audit)
– Practicing certificate with audit qualification (PCAQ)
I think only the latter requires the individual to sit UK-variant papers.
Unless I’m mistaken, there is no mention of such requirement for the simple Practicing certificate.
