Why Should You Consider ACCA After A or O Level?

ACCA After A or O Level: Are you presently working in the finance sector? Or do you want to pursue a career in accounting?

In either case, choosing ACCA qualifications allows you to begin your career at the right level for you. You can begin your studies at the ACCA Qualification if you have two A Levels and three GCSEs, or their equivalent, in five different areas, including English and arithmetic. When you take the first nine papers (the Fundamentals level), the ACCA Qualification is almost equivalent to degree quality. The professional level is comparable to earning a master’s degree. Once your tests, ethics module, and work experience are successfully completed, you will be qualified to work as a professional accountant.

Key Reasons: Why Pursue ACCA After O or A Level?

Students who are interested in a career in accounting should pursue the ACCA professional certificate right out of high school. One benefit of obtaining this qualification is that it is accepted everywhere, which increases your work options. It is a respected qualification, which is why employers from all over the world appreciate it so highly. The ACCA is also committed to ensuring that you continue to grow professionally by keeping you informed about recent developments in the field so that you are always up-to-date.

The ability to pace oneself while performing it is an additional advantage. There are four exam sessions offered by ACCA annually, so you can select how you want to sit. If you keep a very good pace, you can find that you complete it in two to three years or less—while your contemporaries are still in college.

 Sometimes, you might think that you are missing out on opportunities while your fellow students continue to pursue various degrees, but don’t lose heart; ACCA has partnered with Oxford Brookes University to give you the opportunity to get a degree, the BSc in Applied Accounting. After passing all nine ACCA Knowledge and Skills level exams and the ACCA Ethics and Professional Skills module, you will be qualified to pursue this degree. The Research and Analysis project is the only requirement for the BSc in Applied Accounting, after which you will have earned your degree.

The ACCA has a Foundations in Accountancy and CAT Qualification that will pave the way for O-level students who are certain they want to pursue a career in accounting.

In comparison to pursuing a master’s degree, obtaining an ACCA accreditation is the fastest path to launching your career in the accounting and financial industries. Additionally, ACCA qualifications cost less to get than accounting degrees do.

On the other hand, you would be in an ideal position to pursue a career directly associated with accounting because the ACCA qualification equips individuals with professional abilities. Furthermore, the Big Four, the biggest accounting firms, demand that all of their staff members hold a professional degree.

An accounting degree may be your best option if you want to pursue careers outside of accounting in the future. Your options in related industries, including real estate, market research, media, and advertising, will be expanded by this credential.

 Eligibility for the ACCA

  •  It requires two passes at the A-Level and three passes at the O-Level in five different areas, including English and mathematics.
  • An American Higher School Diploma with at least 50% of the required marks or a bachelor’s degree (such as a B.A., BSc, B.Com., or equivalent)
  • A Foundation Diploma

Bottom Line on ACCA After A or O Level

 It’s safe to assume that ACCA after A or O Level is your best bet if you want to pursue a successful accounting profession after earning your A- or O-level degree. You don’t have to wait three to four years to get your degree. The option is ultimately up to you, so evaluate your budget, your future professional goals, and the spare time you have to devote to your studies before taking action.
