The ACCA Qualification exam syllabus is divided into two levels; Fundamentals and Professional.
The Fundamentals level is divided into two modules; Knowledge and Skills.
The Knowledge module introduces you to the core areas of financial and management accounting, providing the platform from which the other technical accountancy areas will be studied in greater detail. The Skills module contains six subjects which comprehensively cover the main technical areas that any accountant, regardless of their future career aspirations, is expected to have mastered.
