5 Reasons Why ACCA Is Better Than ICAN by mikuz(m): 10:49am On Apr 18, 2017
In response to this thread : www.nairaland.com/3743965/5-reasons-why-should-write
I would like to use this golden opportunity to enlighten Nigerians on why any aspiring accountant should write ACCA exams instead of ICAN.

Before I continue, I will like to say here that comparing ACCA to ICAN is like comparing Ronaldo De Lima to Emile Heskey. Ignorance is really not bliss!


1. RECOGNITION

It goes without saying that ACCA being a global body for accountants is recognised in almost every part of the world. If you aspire to live and work in/outside Nigeria then ACCA is the answer. In June 2016 ACCA had 188 000 members and 480 000 students from 178 countries. There is little wonder as to why the body is growing in leaps and bounds globally. ACCA is not recognised in only a few countries.

2. EXAM FLEXIBILITY

ACCA exams are highly flexible. They are both computer and paper based. Furthermore,In Nigeria the first three exams are offered in an on-demand computer based format. This incredibly increases your pass rate since you are working at your own speed, time and convenience.

3. QUALIFICATIONS AND CERTIFICATES

On your road to becoming an ACCA member you have a chance of grabbing a number of certificates and qualifications before being awarded a B.sc and/ M.sc(Hons) in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University, UK. Qualifications includes : Awards of excellence, Diploma in Accounting and business, Advanced Diploma in accounting and business.
Furthermore, every year ACCA offers scholarships to 5 students who attain a certain performance.

4. EASY TO PASS

It is below average students who prepare badly that always complain about ACCA being difficult. I don't know if it's because of our poor educational system or those who enrol for a ACCA in Nigeria are just below average.
With a study material and a revision in 3-4 months you get awarded an accounting diploma which qualifies you as a junior accountant after passing just three on demand computer based exam exams. Flexibility!

5. STUDY MATERIALS

ACCA study materials are the easiest to get for any professional accounting exam online - with just a phone call you can get any hard copy study text/ kits of your choice at your disposal. It took me two days to order and receive F6 FA2016.
Let me also add that there are a lot of ACCA free learning resources/ classes online. For example Opentuition, LSBF and YouTube offer free lectures videos and class notes tailored according to ACCA syllables from F1-P6.


Please my fellow ACCA students don't be moved. You are on the right path. Hardwork and a determined heart will get us there. You don't need to waste money paying for ACCA lessons when there are a lot free lectures online, waiting for you to download them. Just get your study and exam kits and do a lot of practise. Goodnight to us!

Pls, I bought ICAN form but due to financial constraints, could not take the exam. Now, I am considering opt in for something that is global-ACCA and CFA. I think I should be thinking globally while acting locally.hope am on the right track?

ICAN and ACCA both have their strengths. For me, ICAN is;

1. cheaper to write
2. Developed for Nigeria
3. Easily convertible to ACCA if interested
4. Recognised by top local professional courses such as CITN a
5. And many more

That's is false no company in Nigeria or any where in the world compares ICAN to ACCA , it's even stated in all such job ads. ICAN a must but ACCA preferred.

Comparing ican to acca is like comparing a black and white cathode tv to a uhd 4k her 2.0 tv

There just simply no comparison, ican is useless when compared to acca
