Trainees to sign up for examinations online at ACCA

ACCA is to allow students to enter for examinations via the internet and says that it is the first professional body to do so.

Students can access ACCA’s secure e-business site, view their examination options for the next examination session in June 2000, make their choice and pay online. There is no need for manual intervention by ACCA staff.

ACCA head of student affairs Mark Protherough said: ‘This development will improve both the speed and accuracy of examination entries and, by reducing ACCA’s dependence on paper flow, will enable us to offer an even better service to students.’

The move builds on the introduction last year of arrangements to allow members to maintain their personal details and pay their fees and subscriptions over the internet.

It also launched a new global website and ten country specific sites and made major investments in document imaging and customer relationship management systems.

The association, which has been working to develop the new services with Cable and Wireless, is now planning to extend the service by offering international webmail.

Protherough said ACCA plans to enable new students to register electronically through its web site later this year.
