BENEFITS OF CBE

Offering CBEs provides the following benefits to students:

    • Flexibility:

Students are not restricted to June and December paper-based exam sessions as CBEs can be sat at any time of the year. CBE also offers flexibility for re-sits which can be taken at any time. There is no restriction on the number of times a student can re-sit exams by CBE.

The student's result is displayed on the computer screen at the end of the exam.

      • Faster updates:

HOW DOES CBE WORK?

1. Students locate a CBE centre in their area offering the exam(s) they wish to sit by CBE.

2. When arranging bookings with the CBE centre, the exams staff will check the identity of the students against their ACCA registration cards and will also check the eligibility of the students to take the exam(s) they wish to sit.

3. Students pay The British College (CBE centre) directly for the exams.

4. Prior to the exam, The British College (CBE centre) will set up time-restricted access to the exams for the students. The exam must be sat on the scheduled date and at the sheduled time.

5. On the day of the exam, the students' identity is checked by the invigilator, further validity and eligibility checks are carried out, and then the invigilator instructions will be read out.

6. Upon completion of the exam, the final percentage score is calculated and displayed on screen.

7. Students will be asked to print two copies of the Provisional Result Notification; one copy is retained by the CBE centre and the other is for the students' records.

8. The CBE centre uploads the results to the CBE system and these will be transferred to the students' accounts with ACCA within 72 hours.
