What is ACCA?

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is a leading international body for professional accountants. It offers the Chartered Certified Accountant qualification, which is based on international accounting and auditing standards and is recognised globally.

The ACCA qualification emphasises on the technical aspects of accounting. Unlike an Accounting Degree that covers many subjects beyond the field of accounting, ACCA offers a more in-depth and specialised knowledge about accounting in itself, particularly at the Professional Level. It blends technical, ethical and professional skills into its programme to build competency in students to join the workforce as a forward-thinking professional accountant.

While ACCA is a professional certificate and not a degree, it is nonetheless regarded as a prestigious qualification and is highly sought after among employers.

Fast track to the ACCA Qualification

SPM students in Malaysia can enjoy a fast track into the ACCA Qualification through the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) Qualification. They will need five SPM credits (grade C or above in five separate subjects including English and Mathematics) to study CAT. As an added bonus, students who scored grade A in SPM Prinsip Perakaunan paper will be exempted one paper (Paper FA1) from the CAT Qualification. Through this pathway, SPM students can complete the CAT and ACCA Qualifications within three years thereby completing their professional exams by the age of 20 years.
