Are you an ACA student?

As an ACA student who has already completed the first six ACA exams, you can gain the ICAEW Certificate of Finance, Accounting and Business (ICAEW CFAB) as part of your studies.


ICAEW CFAB exams are examined by computer-based assessment and can be taken at an approved exam test centre or via remote invigilation.

  • If you plan to study ICAEW CFAB through a tuition provider, many will have on-site exam centres or are affiliated to an approved exam centre where you will be able to take your exams.
  • If you plan to study ICAEW CFAB on your own (without the support of a tuition provider), you can find your nearest exam centre through the Pearson Vue network.
  • You can also sit your exams via remote invigilation

Please note

The Accounting module is compulsory for all CFAB students except for:

  • AAT qualified individuals who have also passed the ACA Financial Accounting top-up paper, or
  • university graduates who have passed the ACA Financial Accounting and Reporting module, or who have passed the previous ACA Financial Accounting module.
