Pearson LCCI Level 3 Advanced Business Calculations (ASE3003)

There has been a minor change in the way candidates answer the exam. Previously candidates used a separate answer booklet, but this has now been replaced by inline question and answer booklet with effect from November 2020 exam.

Please be assured that there is no disadvantage to candidates.

Answering directly into the question paper brings this in line with the rest of the suite.

Upcoming training

Pearson LCCI Level 2 Business Statistics (ASE20108)

The Sample Assessment Materials for this qualification previously stated that the exam duration is 3 hours, however, this is incorrect.

The correct exam duration of 2 hours and 30 minutes and we amended the SAM document to reflect this.

What to do after an LCCI qualification?

We are proud that our LCCI qualifications offer a range of options to learners once they complete their studies. Visit our website to explore all agreed Professional Body recognition and exemptions for the LCCI suites.

ICAEW have confirmed that the current LCCI exemptions will also apply for 2021. As the Pearson LCCI Level 3 Certificate in Cost and Management Accounting qualification has been updated, and the first assessment for the new qualification is from April 2021, students who complete either qualification in 2021 will be eligible for the relevant exemption.
