ID Verification Letter

Students not in possession of their ACCA Registration card are advised to get their ID Verification Letter made. The ID Verification letter is required to prove a student’s identity and is mandatory for their entry in the examination hall. Once the supporting documentation including proof of identity is submitted, we need at least 24-48 hours to process the timely receipt of your ID verification letters.
