Updated 18 February 2020

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all ACCA exams in Mainland China, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR for the March 2020 exam session have been cancelled.

The following frequently asked questions (FAQs) have been created to address students’ most common queries.

1. Why have all ACCA exams in Mainland China, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR for the March session been cancelled?

The March 2020 exams have been cancelled in these areas as a direct result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and ongoing impact. This decision has been made based on extensive discussions with our exam delivery partners and guidance by the local government.

2. Why has this decision been taken now?

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has reached a stage whereby it is no longer possible to deliver March exams safely in Mainland China, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR.

We always strive to hold exam sittings where possible but based on extensive discussions with our exam delivery partners and governmental guidance the March exams in these areas have been cancelled. Making the decision now provides students with a clear message and allows them to alter their plans and studies accordingly.

3.  Is it possible this decision may be reversed prior to exam week if the situation improves?

No. Now the decision has been made to cancel the exam session, this decision will not be overturned. Even if the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation significantly and unexpectedly improves, the cancellation remains a final decision.

4.  If universities and institutes holding exams are open by the first day of exams (2 March), can the exam still go ahead?

No, the decision to cancel all March 2020 session-based exams in Mainland China, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR is final.

5.  Can the March session be rescheduled to take place in April or May if the virus is contained?

No. Due to the nature and complexity of operating the exams, ACCA is not able to reschedule any session-based exams. It is therefore not possible to reschedule March exams as a result of the current situation caused by the virus.

The next exam session will be held between 1-5 June 2020.

6. Do students need to take any action to withdraw their March exam booking(s)?

No. ACCA has already removed all March 2020 exam bookings for affected students, and credited myACCA accounts with the exam fee accordingly.

7. Will students receive an exam fee credit for their March exam(s)?

Yes. All March 2020 exam fees paid by students due to sit in Mainland China, Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR will be returned in full due to the session cancellation as a result of the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).

8. How and when will this credit be issued?

All credits will be issued to student accounts unless the exam fee was paid for by an employer, in which case it would be returned to the employer directly.

All credits have now been processed. If students have further queries regarding their March exam entry or credit, please email the Exams team at examsoperationsservices@accaglobal.com.

9. When will students know the March 2020 credit has been issued?

All credits have now been processed.

Students should receive a notification confirming their March 2020 exam booking(s) has been officially withdrawn and credit issued.

10. Can the exam fee credit be returned to student bank accounts instead of myACCA?

All credits will be issued to student myACCA accounts (where the student has paid for the exam).

Once this has been issued, if any student would prefer for the refund to be made to a bank account then please contact the Connect team on students@accaglobal.com with details of your request.

11. If there are overdue fees on student accounts not directly related to exams, will this affect the exam fee credit?

All exam fee credits will be returned to student accounts whereby the student has made the initial payment. This credit will be automatically allocated against any overdue invoices currently active on student accounts.

In order to enter for future exams, all students should ensure overdue fees are paid in full as an exam entry cannot be made otherwise.

12. How will the cancelled exam session be recorded on students’myACCA accounts?

Student records will clearly state that the March 2020 exam session was cancelled.

13. If a March withdrawal was previously sent to the Exams team, but not processed before the June early entry deadline (10 February), can students still be entered at the early rate?

Only students who entered for the March 2020 exam session during the early entry period will be able to enter at the early entry rate for the June 2020 session if they have missed the 10 February deadline.

Students in this category who are not yet entered for June and would like to be, should enter via the Exam Planner during the standard period as normal. Following this, ACCA will credit student accounts within 7 working days for the price difference between the early and standard period.

14. What if students entered the June session for a Strategic Professional exam at the early rate, but this entry has now been removed as part of the March exam withdrawals and the June early deadline has passed?

Similar to the above, all students who entered for an SP exam at the June 2020 exam session during the early entry period and have now had this entry removed due to the progression rules, will be able to enter at the early entry rate for the SP exam at the June 2020 session again.

Students in this category who are not yet entered for June and would like to be, should enter via the Exam Planner during the standard period as normal. Following this, ACCA will credit student accounts within 7 working days for the price difference between the early and standard period.

15. The decision to cancel March exams was made after the June 2020 early entry deadline had passed…can students be given a further opportunity to enter at the June early prices?

See above.

16. Will ACCA automatically re-enter students for the same exam in June?

No. Students should enter for a future exam session via the Exam Planner prior to the applicable deadline for the session of their choice.

17. Will there be an increase in exam centre capacity for the June session given the expected rise in entries following the March cancellation?

We are currently working with our partners to assess the impact of the March cancellation on the June session in order that we can secure the additional capacity required.

18. Will the June 2020 standard entry deadline be extended due to the impact of the cancelled March session and on-demand CBE exams?

No. The June standard entry deadline will remain Monday 27 April, with the late entry deadline on 4 May 2020.  

19. If a student’s June exam entry for a Strategic Professional exam was dependent on a March entry for an Applied Skills exam, how will the June entry be affected now the March exam has not been sat?

Any students in this scenario will have their June Strategic Professional exam automatically withdrawn as part of the progression rules, and will be required to re-enter for both the Applied Skills exam and Strategic Professional exam in June to abide by the current progression rules.  

20. For those students affected by the 7-year rule for March 2020 and June 2020, will their expiring pass be given an extension?

Any students who are affected will be given an extension until the December 2020 exam session.

There is no need for students to take any further action to confirm the extension as ACCA are able to identify all those affected and will make the change within the next 5 working days.

21. What if there is a change in syllabus for my exam between the March and June session?

Students should ensure they remain aware of the syllabus related to the exam and exam session they are entered for, and study accordingly.

More information on the syllabus of each individual exam can be found via the following link:

https://www.accaglobal.com/lk/en/student/exam-support-resources.html

As for TX-UK, students should ensure they study in respect to the updated exam content which will be based on the Finance Act 2019 (March 2020 session is based on the Finance Act 2018).  Specifically, students should refer to the syllabus and study guide for June 2020 to March 2021 as well as the Finance Act 2019 article.

Please refer to the following links for the “syllabus & study guide” , “examinable documents” and technical article – Finance Act 2019” for the United Kingdom (UK):

ACCA will provide further support and guidance to both tutors and students to prepare TX-UK for June 2020 as soon as possible.

22. Does this cancellation include on-demand CBE exams as well?

On-demand CBE exams have been disrupted across the different areas in various ways.

All on-demand CBEs in February have also been suspended across Mainland China for three of our exam providers: Golden Finance, ZBG and British Council. Golden Finance will also not be offering on-demand exams in March or April. Some on-demand CBE centres in Wuhan have also temporarily suspended on-demand exams due to the outbreak.

Macau on-demand exams have been cancelled for February, whilst some centres in Hong Kong have also cancelled exams for the remainder of February.

ACCA is monitoring the virus situation very closely in conjunction with our partners and local agencies. Students should contact on-demand centres directly for availability regarding on-demand exams but remain aware the centre may be temporarily closed due to the virus.

23. How do students arrange on-demand CBE exam fee refunds?

All students due to sit an on-demand CBE exam which has now been cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) should contact the on-demand centre directly to arrange a refund.

24. Is the June exam session going ahead?

Yes. ACCA will continue to be guided by the advice from the local government and our exam delivery partners for exams beyond March, but at this stage it is expected the June session will go ahead as planned.

25. Who should students contact for further information?
