ICAEW ACA Advanced Level Case Study

DSR offers ICAEW ACA Case Study preparation for both exam sittings. Our Case Study course is taught by Zafar Rizvi, FCA (ICAEW), in partnership with EOS Training in the UK.  


What is the Case Study?

The Case Study is the final exam of the ICAEW's ACA program and is designed to test your:
*Business Analysis
*Financial Analysis
*Professional Skepticism
*Ability to link different bits of information
*Strategic thinking
*Ability to communicate at the board level


Exam Structure:


Six weeks before the exam, the ICAEW releases 40-50 pages of Advance Information (AI). Students are expected to know the advanced material and be prepared to answer real-life situational questions on the day of the exam. New information will be provided on the day of the exam that students will have to integrate with the Advance Information.

The exam questions will be based on real-life situations for which you have to apply your understanding of the Advance Information.

You have 4 hours to complete the exam.


Who should be taking the Case Study?

* Students who have completed the first 14 ICAEW ACA papers. The Case Study must be the last exam that you attempt. The ICAEW recommends that before you sit the Case Study you complete the structured training in ethics (STE) program and be in the final level of Initial Professional Development (IPD).

If you are an ICAI / ICAP / ICAB/ ICASL or ACCA member and have completed the other two advance level exams, you can take the Case study to get the prestigious ICAEW ACA designation.


Challenges to Overcome:

*Inadequate analysis of AI
*Lack of identifying business issues
*Focus on the wrong issues
*Poor time management


DSR can help you overcome the challenges that most students face!

Our overall Case Study pass rate is well above the world average.
