ACCA Exam fees

The ACCA exam fee has to be paid for every exam that you enter. Students sitting for their exam in a special or unlisted centre will be required to pay an additional local invigilation and accommodation fees. The exam fees are subjected to change and it’s advisable to look up the ACCA Global Website for accurate fee listing.

LSBF in Singapore does not host any ACCA exam and only charges the tuition fees. The entire exam fees paid by students go to the statutory body which is ACCA Global. Also, the exam fees mentioned on the LSBF in Singapore website is specific to students in Singapore. Here is a general idea of requisite fees and students can check the official site for more.
