Computer-based exams have been developed by ACCA as part of our overall e-business strategy, providing learning and assessment online and continuing to offer students access, opportunity and flexibility through the ACCA brand. ACCA was the first professional body to introduce computer-based examinations in 1998. ACCA has over 500 licensed CBE centres worldwide and Alpha College is of approved centre of ACCA to conduct CBE exams. Computer-based exams (CBEs) are available for the first seven papers (not the options papers) within the Foundations in Accountancy suite of awards and F1, F2, F3 and F4 (English and Global) from the ACCA Qualification.
