Examination regulations and syllabuses

The Knowledge guide to ICAEW examination papers has been developed to help you track down the examination papers and their associated publications through the years - with guidance on where you can find online resources for recent and current examinations. On this page we focus on sources for examination regulations and syllabuses.

The examinations regulations and syllabuses were first published in 1882 and have been published under a number of titles since then including 'Examination regulations and syllabus', 'New examination syllabuses' and 'Examinations conduct and syllabuses'.

Aspects covered by the regulations include eligibility, entry requirements, arrangements for the exams and publication of results. The syllabus lists the papers, outlines the knowledge that candidates will need to have gained and skills required in the examinations.
