How to get ACCA professional marks

Professional skills marks are coming to the ACCA optional exams, and ACCA said that from the September diet 2022 the option exams will look different. It explained: “We will be asking our students to apply their knowledge and demonstrate their professional skills across the entire exams.”

The new-look marking scheme will introduce 20 professional skills marks, with the idea that this better prepares students for the role of a finance professional: “asking them to demonstrate the critical professional skills required of a professional accountant.”

The changes build on previous changes to the ACCA qualification – such as the introduction of the SBL exam and ethics module.

ACCA has updated its resources too, with a series of videos, new mock exams on the practice platform, updated ‘read the mind of the marker’ articles, and a series of webinars.
