hi Le govo,

i will try and be brief here,
first ATS is for people that are not yet graduates. its has 3 stages 1, 11 and 111, the exam is usually written in MAR and SEPT each year
while ICAN is for graduates, its a professional exam and it also has 3 stages and written in MAY AND NOV each year

the relationship to ATS is that once you pass the ATS you can then be qualified to write the ICAN (remember its for non graduates)

the fees are based on the level you are writing - and its always advertised in the Newspaper, towards the exam period.

the materials are available from the various tutor houses and ICAN office (ie past questions and pilot

the duration is as a result of your successes. However it takes approx. a yr and six months to qualify (if you pass each stage\diet---) TRUST ''Nigerian factor'' angry
that is if the system will ''let its people go''
However dont be discouraged, they have changed the syllabus and has a credit system now which allows you to get a credit of what you have passed and re- write the failed one. so you have a better chnace now unlike before (cos they have lost many students to ACCA- london, thats why the hurried change of the old system)

my advice is that u go for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Though just be ready to study very hard. the end justifies the means.

for further enquirie go to

Anabib's given a low down but then u dont av to be a graduate before proceeding for the ICAN exams. My sister's not been to the university. She started wit ATS n is now in the first stage of ICAN, about to write her exams in May. She even got a job in a bank with her ATS cert. With ATS, u can also get a direct entry into 200 level in the university.

Please can u recommend good text books and ICAN tailored materials for P.E. III exams. I intend  studying on my own(for November Diet) since I'm  in a state where there are no ICAN tuition houses. Your recommendation will really be of great help.

Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by Anabib(f): 5:28pm On Apr 23, 2006

Well for PE 3 exams its best you get the following textbooks

Financial mgt-- by Oye or (this guy at pye- cant remember his name)
financial reporting-- by kalu
Auditing--- I used my note, so u can get a photocopy of a most current note from someone and also read in line wt your syllabus. e.g ISAs and SAS
MDSC---- use ICAN past questions and tutor house lecture pack (WYSE in lagos)
Tax-- will get his name later, written by (SAFE) lecturer

Really, the secret is studying past questions and Ican pilot packs
and if u can get a photo copy of an Ican tutor house lecture notes, that would help streamline what you have to read.

Ican syllabus is wide, and they expect you to know all well, so get familiar with the happenings around you, issues etc especially for MDCS as it has no text book.

All the best!!!

Anabib thanks alot.

I was in a similar situation last diet-I had reference in M.A. Hope to make it this diet.

I will not have the time, due to work, to go to Lagos(I presume that's where I can get these materials) so can you please give me in detail full names of the authors and editions so that whoever I send will buy the right textbooks.

Thanks once again. I really appreciate your quick response.
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by Anabib(f): 10:46am On Apr 24, 2006

MA- written by Oye
Tax- by Seyi Ojo
Fin Reporting by Kalu

Also get the past Questions and pilot for all subjects. (and study packs too )

Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by worldz(m): 5:04pm On May 09, 2006
Hi all!

I am currently studying for ICAN/ATS and intend schooling in Lagos probably UNILAG to enable me attend lecture centres close to me.

But going by the way things are in UNILAG, they frustrated me last session by setting cut-off marks for JAMB score after post-UME cut-offs which i beat.

I would really appreciate advice from my fellow Nairalanders, whether to go ahead with schooling in Lagos due to studies for ATS or to change Institution to somewhere outside lagos that would only rely on post-UME for admission. But how do i get good lecture centres there! or even know whether they exist?
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by Seun(m): 4:56pm On May 25, 2006
I guess you'll have to search before making your decision.
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by worldz(m): 5:09pm On May 25, 2006
Thanks Seun.

But any one in the house belive you can just read on your own for such exams without attending lectures. That is if there are no lecture centres available to you.
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by atitebi(m): 12:44pm On May 29, 2006
I will like to write the march 2006 diets of the ats and i will like to know which tutorial lesson is okay to go for. I will also like to know the estimate of their fees and if include study kit. Any one to give me list of ican-ats tutorial lessons and their location and email address if any. Thanks.
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by worldz(m): 11:44am On May 30, 2006
The ones i know of are: PYE close to Yabatech, WYSE, SAFE at Surulere close to Lagos State Polytechic, Gbaja, Surulere.

ATS 1 at SAFE is N13,000 FT, N10,000 PT including Question Packs for all subjects. While you can still get the Insight Past Questions (10 Diets) N1,000 for all subjects.

Hope you find these useful.

Goodluck !

l graduated from the department of business admin and l am very eager to be chartered
l started the ast program while l was still in the university but couldn't write their exams not that it was difficult, but because then, all their exams do clash with my school exams. and now l have graduated and l still intend to become a chartered.
can anybody please tell me where to start cos l have heard that since one is a graduate, there is no need going through the ast of a tin and l dont know if my discipline will give me the direct access to writing the exams or l still have some foundation programe to undertake.
l will really appreciate your contributions towards helping me achieving ,my dream

Hi every1, I need your cum advice. I have ND in bus admin., currently working in one of the respectable audit firm., I'm a guy who loves calculations so well, hence my desire for accounting profession. I was about registering for my HND progrm when a friend told me about ACCA in conjunction with oxford brookes university offer Bsc in applied accounting as well as acca membership.
So my fellow nairalanders, i want you to advice on which to enroll as far as time, money and educational value is concerned.
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by Bukittes(f): 10:10am On Feb 17, 2010
@alpontif, your not getting your ID card does not stop you from writing the exams now. So you registered since 3years ago and sat down just like that? Ok let me tell you the implications 1. Your subscriptions is accruing. 2. You have 10years to be a registered student member of the institute and you have conveniently wasted three of those. My candid advice? Go and begin writing with immediate effect and automatic alacrity. I don't think you can still register for the March diet, that may be too late already but brace up for September diet. You can make it, just be determined. wishing you well.
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by roarowolo: 6:02pm On Mar 25, 2010
@alpontif, look forward to you enrolling for September 2010 examination.
Re: About The ICAN/ATS Examinations by beebaba2: 8:12am On Mar 26, 2010
Also, for those who might be interested, you can also seize the opportunity to enrol for Professional exams like ICAN/ATS, CITN, NIMN, ACCA, CFA e.t.c which will also affect your academic programmes positively. All you need is just your extra time which other use for useless activities on the campus.

For ICAN/ATS programme, u can enrol with just O ‘Level 5 credits regardless of your academic background (be it science, art or commercial). From my experience, Science students mostly have the best chance. There are several benefits to this ATS programme: D.E admissions ( also for HND in polys),exceptions in ICAN professional exams, quick employment opportunities (even before the end of your BSc), it also put u ahead of your mates in class as so on. The programme has 3 stages and the exam is twice a yr (March & Sept.).
