The greatest football tournament in the world kicks off on 12th June and ends on the 11th July. Now, if you are a CIMA student who sits your exams in May the rewards seem obvious – work hard and reward yourself with a month long football fest! CIPFA PQ’s also have perfect exams dates for football fans – 2 – 10 June. You have to feel sorry for the ICAEW students who have exams on 14, 15 and 16th June. Now those dates don’t actually clash with England games but it would be hard to justify watching the game just a few days before an actual exam. But it is the ACCA and AAT Exams which really fall foul of the World Cup timetable. The ACCA exams run from 7th June to the 16th. The AAT is 14th to the 18th June. England’s game against Algeria is very nicely time for the evening of Friday 18th
