To meet the entry requirements for ACCA directly, students need 5 passes in total from their secondary school studies.
For the Indian syllabus, 3 of these must be 12th grade results. Out of the 5 passes, 2 must be over 65% and the others need to be 50% or higher. The subjects must include English and Mathematics or Accounting.
If students do not meet these requirements they can join the ACCA qualification as an FIA (Foundation in Accountancy) student. This would mean that the student would need to pass the first 3 papers (BT, MA and FA) before entering for further exams.
