FAQs

Many learners who take accounting go onto university and become qualified accountants, working for accountancy practices or within an organisation. With a few years experience, some accountants then decide to start their own practice.

Before you start your tutor will contact you to welcome you and, if you’re new to Learn Now, help you understand what study will be like. They’ll also clarify how and when they can be contacted, and how quickly they will respond to you.

Once you’ve started your tutor will mark and provide feedback on your assignments and support your progress throughout the course.


There is no coursework or practical involved with this course. Your final grade will be based on exams only. This qualification is 100% exam based.

With our A Level courses you receive support and access for up to two years. You can however complete the course much sooner if you wish to. You will need to check the exam dates for your A Level subject and the number of guided learning hours to ensure that you can achieve your goals.
