ACCA Entry Requirements
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.
The ACCA has four exam sittings: March, June, September and December. PhoenixFT runs full ACCA programs for all sittings in Dubai.
ACCA Qualification
The ACCA allows students to take a maximum of 4 papers per exam sitting, but there is a cap at 8 exams for one year. Students need to pass 13 ACCA exams, complete their Ethics and Professional Skills Module and gain 3 years' practical work experience in order to qualify as an ACCA member.
