👩🎓 On average (median), ACAs qualify at 24, ACCA at 27 an CIMA at 29.
ACCA/CIMA generally take longer to complete as they are taken at their own pace and may be self funded. One of the reasons we find ACCA is completed earlier is that some candidates have more exemptions for ACCA and as such, less exams to actually take. The key thing here is not to rush it and in reality, it does not matter when you qualify, there just tends to be less life distractions earlier on in your career!
