Additionally, they get an instant result feedback at the end of the exam. The result is then transferred to student’s ACCA account within 72 hours. ICBS Colombo Centre will now conduct ACCA Foundation Exams F1(AB), F2(MA), F3(FA) and Skills Exam F4(CL ENG). The examination slots are 9.00am, 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm for ACCA F1(AB), F2(MA), F3(FA) and F4(CL ENG) from Monday to Saturday with payment to place an exam booking to be made via cash or card with zero surcharge. Additionally, during the month of May and June, ICBS will be also offering CBE exams at a special discounted rate.
