Computer Based Exams (CBEs)

On-demand Computer-based exams (CBEs) are available for papers AB, MA, FA, and LW (English and Global variants) of the ACCA Qualification.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SITTING CBEs?

  • Flexibility: You can sit CBEs at any time of year. While we hope that you will pass first time, a key advantage of a CBE is that you can take your resit much sooner while the information is fresh in your mind.
  • Instant results: Your result is displayed on the computer screen at the end of the exam, so you don’t need to spend the next few weeks waiting for your results.

HOW DO CBEs WORK?

  • Contact the School of Professional Studies (SPS) of Cyprus College and enquire about CBE schedule dates in the current semester. Both SPS Nicosia and Limassol branches are approved CBE centres.
  • You will need to pay the SPS directly for the exams you wish to sit.
  • Prior to the exam, we will set up time-restricted access to the exams.
  • On the day of the exam, you will need to have your identity with you as this will be checked by the invigilator.
  • Once the exam is started, the questions are displayed on screen and the answers are input directly onto the CBE software.
  • On completion of the exam, the final percentage score is calculated and displayed on screen.
  • At the end of the exam, we (as the CBE centre) will upload the results to the CBE system and these will be transferred to your records with ACCA within 72 hours.
