Just like skills in mode of exam.
But no change in courses.

Ican to get its own university? Lost priority, there is always a difference between academic and professionals.

Did I see higher than ACCA? With their shitty questions, website, exam centres.. etc. Every improvement made by ican has long been implemented by Acca. Check ACCA website alone, the resources provided there is enough to make one a complete accountant, Acca also interacts with its students better and conduct continuous research. You have opportunity to do CBEs in Acca in Fundamentals and Skills... If ican really wants to be at acca level, they must work very hard. Unfortunately na naija we dey, the process is still mediocre, so dont expect top notch output. Its good to know they are chasing well tho.
