Examination Marking Opportunities for the ICAEW

ICAEW is recruiting new markers for the Advanced Level Case Study marking team.

The Case Study is the four-hour final exam taken by ACA students. It aims to test candidates’ professional skills in the context of business issues, building on the knowledge and skills acquired during success at the Certificate Level and Professional Level examinations. Candidates are given 40 – 50 pages of Advance Information six weeks before the examination to ‘set the scene’ (who they are and the area they are working in). During the exam they must assess the four requirements given in the exam, taking into account approximately 15 pages of new information provided.

Case Study markers will generally:

  • Be qualified with a CCAB body or the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT), with at least three years’ post qualification experience
