ACCA students continue to be a lucrative source of revenues. The annual accounts for the year 2000 show that the ACCA made more that £5 million out of its students. ACCA has never explained why students from China were/are subsidised but those from many poorer developing countries continue to be exploited.
Examination and Exemption Fees 12,156

Most ACCA students are also wasting their money. ACCA boasts around
170,000 students, but only around 8-10,000 passes its final examinations
every year. Most are never destined to qualify. Most rarely pass all the
exams at the first attempt. Those unable to pass the exams should be weeded
out at the earliest opportunity, but this does not happen. ACCA has now
got used to milking students.
