Are you a PQ because you are time barred?

ACCA
#1

Often people become time barred and feel that this is the end of their studies and future career. The reasons for being time barred are many and various but other doors can be opened up. You are after all only time barred from that institute and with some other institutes you can transfer the modules you have passed to their syllabus and gain exemption. It does not always mean that you need to restart all the studies. There is often the opportunity to shift focus to say Cost and Management, CIPFA, ATII etc.

The field remains wide open, and with a multitude of learning sources available I would encourage PQ’s to look at all opps.

Has anybody switched from say ACA to ACCA having been time barred? Can they give the benefit of their experience?
