P.A. College Graduates, who select the Accounting and Finance pathway of the Business Administration degree programme, are exempted from the 12 out of the 16 papers towards the AIA professional qualification. The remaining four papers can be covered as part of the degree scheme, thus enabling the students simply to revise before taking the AIA external examinations.
