DEFERMENT OF THE COMMENCEMENT DATE FOR THE NEW PROFESSIONAL EXAMINATION SYLLABUS FROM MARCH 2021 TILL NOVEMBER 2021
The 2020 revised syllabus for the Institute’s Professional Examinations was due to take effect from March 2021 diet. Due to CQVID-19 pandemic, the Institute experienced challenges in completing all the necessary arrangements for the commencement of the new syllabus as scheduled. The Council of the Institute at its meeting held on 14th January, 2021 took a decision to defer the commencement date of the new syllabus from March, 2021 to November 202l. This is to ensure that the Institute’s policy on producing quality accountants remains intact.
Therefore, the May diet 2021 professional examination will be based on the November 2019 syllabus while November 2021 diet examinations will be based on March 2021 syllabus.
We therefore enjoin all the students to utilize this opportunity to prepare adequately for the examinations.
