Exam fees for Foundations in Accountancy students
When it comes to exam fees for this category of students, it gets complicated, as most of the exams are only available on demand at the CBE centres. This includes exams for the Introductory and Intermediate Certificates in Financial and Management Accounting (MA1, MA2, FA1 and FA2), as well as the FMA, FFA and FAB for a Diploma in Accounting and Business.
