Hira, although I myself have got nothing to do with the accountancy profession technically, but even though, I have got few friends in the profession who always say that whenever something wanna come into the profession, they should always consider doing ACA (ICAEW) as their first priority.

I am sure others, who are members of respective professional bodies, would comment on this and may give you much better insight into the profession.

best wishes,

DT

hi
let me tell how much years are required to complete ACCA.
what are examination policy
which is the best institution
what are there fees.
what are the courses.
And any other thing you like to tell related to this
BYE



<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Tahoma, Arial" size=2 id=quote>

Overall there are 16 subjects/examinations of ACCA out of which you have to give 14... The ACCA syllabus is divided into three parts, namely, Part I, Part II and Part III...

ACCA examinations are held twice a year in June and December... In one attempt, you can appear for a maximum of four examinations... On average under normal circumstances, it takes approximately three years to complete ACCA...

There is also a three year work experience requirement for ACCA which is quite flexible, and can be gained before, during or after you do ACCA.

A person who has completed ACCA but not yet gained three years of relative work experience is called an ACCA Affiliate... One who has completed both, three years of work experience and also ACCA, is termed as an ACCA Member.

In Karachi, Tabanis, Alhamd, CMS, CAMS and SBS are amongst the popular ACCA institutions... The average tuition fees per ACCA exam subject is roughly Rs 5,000... The examination fees per ACCA exam varies from part to part... Part I £38 per exam, Part II £46 per exam, Part III £54 per exam.

I hope that answers all your questions.

You could start studying for CFA, but again to get the Charter, you've got be at least 23 years of age.

If you seriously want to persue CFA, then by all means go ahead. What I have heard that after the Actuarial Qualifications, CFA is renowned to be the most difficult and hence most sought after professional qualification in the finance world.

Good Luck.

Minimum age requirement for ACCA is 18 and one should have completed atleast intermediate/A levels... One can also do ACCA after O levels but then first CAT has to be attempted... Even intermediate students have to do CAT first and then ACCA... Only ALevels students can directly enrol themselves for ACCA...

There is another route for ACCA... If you don't fulfill the other pre-requisites (i.e havent done Inter, etc), then you can still join ACCA through the 'Mature Student Entry Route'... For that you have to be atleast 21 years old...

Also, if you have done MBA, you might be entitled to exemptions from the first five ACCA examinations.

Dear Hira,
Assalamalaikum
Sumaan has given some very nice answers here .. well I am an ACCA student as well and am in my 2nd part right now ..
As sumaan explained that 21 is the minimum age for mser students and not the normal students .. one thing i would like to add here is that for pakistani students the minimum requirement is either b.comm or a levels .. so if u have done either and are above 18 years of age you can sit for the papers ..
As you mentioned CFA and someone mentioned Actuary .. well all 3 qualifications are in different fields .. ACCA is basically an accountancy qualification .. where as CFA is a pure finance qualification, of course covering accounting as well but on a differnt level .. with ACCA you become a specialist in making accounts and related aspects whereas with CFA you gain knowledge about the whole of finance which is obviously a broader fields .. As for Actuary there is no relation to accounts or finance .. its a totally different field .. anyhow best of luck to you in your decision .. If you have any more queries you can email me at osahmed@yahoo.co.uk ....
take care


ma salaama

Firstly, Insurance Actuaries do involve in preparing financial statements for Insurance Companies generally in calculating 'technical provisions'. It is required by the FSA.

Secondly, I think Insurance does come under the Finance. So, since there are Fellowships in Insurance, therefore, Actuaries do work in FINANCE too.

thanks

Of course, Actuarial Science is a study of Finance and has 'direct' relation to it.

According to the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, UK;

"Actuaries provide commercial, financial and prudential advice on the management of assets and liabilities - especially where long term management and planning are critical factors."

And, then

"making financial sense of the future".

If you need more justifications, please feel free to contact.

yes DT
but what i had meant by my answer the other day was that actuarial sciences is not a specialisation in accounts or finance .. and if u see the broader picture then u will also understand that actuary is in itself a specialist field and hence the specialisation in finance and accounts is no present .. from what i understood was that hira wants to do something much more closely related to accounts then finance .. sorry if my wordings might have been misleading ..
