Accounting and finance exams

The British Council Pakistan can conduct the exams listed below.

We run an on demand service for these exams. As a candidate you must first register with your university or institution of choice, organise your exam and then get in touch with us. We will host the exam on behalf of the institution.

If that is not clear, or you need assistance, please contact us.

Association of Chartered Certified Accountants

ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is the global body for professional accountants. ACCA aims to offer business-relevant, first-choice qualifications to people of application, ability and ambition around the world who seek a rewarding career in accountancy, finance and management.

In Pakistan, written examinations are held in June and December and computer based tests are administered on demand through registration at institutions certified by ACCA. Fee details available with ACCA and registrations are also made through local ACCA representatives.

In addition to June and December ACCA examinations, British Council also manages ACCA computer based examinations.
