Larry Learner chats about how many ICB subjects you can do in a year – June 2017

Hi Larry,

I have registered with the ICB and am studying Financial Accounting correspondently. I just wanted to ask if it is possible to do more than 4 modules in a year?

I was looking at my prospectus and it shows that I should study NQF Level 3 in a period of a year but I want to do NQF Level 3 and 4 in one year. I understand that I must have completed all the modules on NQF Level 3 before I can start with those on NQF Level 4 but I want to know if I can study and book for 2 modules at a time which would enable me to complete NQF Level 3 and 4 in a period of one year.



Hi Olwin,

You can definitely do more than 4 subjects a year. You can do as many exams as possible as long as the exam dates do not clash. You cannot write more than 1 exam a day as we only have 1 exam slot at 9am. So, have a look at Timetable B to see which exams you can book for as stated on the time table.

Here is a printable version of Timetable B: Make sure your printer settings are landscape, not portrait, for it to print properly. You can use this to schedule your exams.

Good luck!
