ACCA is the most popular certification of accountancy all over the world specially in Pakistan. Association Of Chartered Certified Accountants abbreviated as ACCA allover the world is a famous but difficult certification to get. In this article I'm going to give a review of ACCA in Lahore. There are so many institutes offering tuition for ACCA classes including PAC, CAP, SKANS,NCBA&E etc. Well I'm going to evaluate these institutes on basis of there campuses, faculty, standard of coaching and fees as well. For a very long period of time SKANS lead them for its high standards of education and outstanding and committed faculty members but now they are losing there reputation as they more concerned about making profit instead of quality education. On the other hand institutes like CFE and PAC and CAPS is really concentrating on there level of education and really gaining reputation. Lets have a quick review of these institutes.
SKANS remain on the top for like a long period of time due to its highly professional faculty and their commitment for high class education. It was like Son: “Dad I want to do ACCA” Dad: “Ok I’ll bring SKANS prospectus for you”. But now they don’t maintained their top position because they are more concerned now about making profits and less to provide quality education. One more thing affecting their repute is that most of their teachers are leaving them and they are doing nothing to intact them also SKANS fee is higher then other institutes offering ACCA. SKANS has got a big and impressive building on very prime location of Lahore just opposite the PU hostels. However admissions are open and classes will start from 27th July.
CFE is becoming first choice for students for ACCA as they are focusing on their education standards and giving very friendly environment to their students. Fees are comparatively less. Campus is also not bad and also on main location of Lahore. One reason for CFE to becoming popular is that there is less glamour in there campus and more education. So for me I must rate CFE above the SKANS.
College of Accountancy and Professional Studies (CAPS) if offering ACCA for a long period of time and know ranked above SKANS and CFE among students. When I said students it means students how want to study and only study but those who are more concerned with other activities obviously go for SKANS. They share same road with SKANS but size of building is much smaller then SKANS but quality of education in there is much more then SKANS. Hurry Up admissions are open these days !
PAC – The Professionals’ Academy Of Commerce for me is now the best college offering ACCA because of there unique teaching methods and strict check on students in the shape of Quizzes, monthly tests, class presentations, assignments and attendance reports on monthly basis. PAC have its purpose build campus near Jail Road with nice qualities. There fees are also less and can be discounted if negotiated properly. So for me PAC is best choice at the moment.
Few days ago a teacher of mine told me about Rise Institute. He said that Rise is the best place to do ACCA as its run by that man who make SKANS, SKANS. But as I don’t have much information about this institute so I can’t recommend this.
Note: Above comments are entirely on my personal judgment after talking to stakeholders of these institutes.
