ICAEW CFAB student support and services

Support and benefits throughout your ICAEW CFAB studies.

Exam and study support

We provide plenty of free guidance and support to help you succeed at your exams. You will need your ICAEW student ID number to access these free study resources. For each ICAEW CFAB exam module, we have:

  • Study webinar – understand how the exam marks are awarded for that exam, the tricky areas of the syllabus and how to allocate your time in the exam;
  • Study guide – helps put your learning in context and why each subject is important;
  • Syllabus – what is covered at each exam subject
  • Sample questions and assessments – to help you to practise before you sit the exam; and
  • Video demonstration of the scenario-based questions (for the Accounting, Principles of Taxation and Management Information exams).

The student support team can offer you help and guidance on a range of issues, including registration, credit for prior learning/exemptions and assessments. You can contact them by telephone, web chat or by email.
