ACCA AA Audit and Assurance Syllabus & Exam

Aim

The aim of ACCA AA Audit and Assurance (formerly F8) is to develop knowledge and understanding of the process of carrying out the assurance engagement and its application in the context of the professional regulatory framework.

Objective of the Syllabus

  • Explain the concept of audit and assurance and the functions of audit, corporate governance, including ethics and professional conduct, describing the scope and distinguishing between the functions of internal and external audit
  • Demonstrate how the auditor obtains and accepts audit engagements, obtains an understanding of the entity and its environment, assesses the risk of material misstatement (whether arising from fraud or other irregularities) and plans an audit of financial statements
  • Describe and evaluate internal controls, techniques and audit tests, including IT systems to identify and communicate control risks and their potential consequences, making appropriate recommendations
  • Identify and describe the work and evidence obtained by the auditor and others required to meet the objectives of audit engagements and the application of the International Standards on Auditing (ISAs)
  • Explain how consideration of subsequent events and the going concern principle can inform the conclusions from audit work and are reflected in different types of auditor’s report, written representations and the final review and report.

Exam Format

The ACCA AA Audit and Assurance syllabus is assessed by a three-hour examination available in both computer-based and paper-based formats. * *For paper-based exams there is an extra 15 minutes to reflect the manual effort required. Section A of the exam comprises three 10 mark case-based questions. Each case has five objective test questions worth 2 marks each. Section B of the exam comprises one 30 mark question and two 20 mark questions.
