Session CBE (F5-F9)

ACCA launches F5 - F9 Computer Based Exams in
December 2016 in Pakistan

SKANS School of Accountancy is working in a partnership with ACCA to support the introduction of 'Session Computer Based Exams' (Session CBEs) for papers F5 – F9 in Pakistan, starting with the December 2016 exam sitting.

These CBEs have been developed after consultation with students, learning providers and employers so that they reflect the environment modern finance professionals' work in. The use of spreadsheets and word processing programs in the CBEs ensure that the right skills and competencies are developed in students.

What is the exam format?

The exam consists of a mix of short and long questions. The Objective Test and OT Cases are auto-marked. The Constructed Response (longer) questions are where students have to produce their own narrative and numerical answers require expert/human marking. See the following 'Exam Format' page for full details.

How will SKANS support me?

As SKANS is working closely with ACCA, we will ensure you are fully supported in the transition to the Session CBEs: We are running courses for the December attempt that will cover the full syllabus but also incorporate training to deal with the Computer Based element of the exam. You can benefit from the access to our learning support, resources and the facility to practice using the new word processing and spreadsheet functionalities.
