APC Dates

The Assessment of Professional Competence is the final academic requirement to qualifying as a CA(SA). The APC is a case study assessment that focuses on professional skills, requiring you to apply the technical competence you have already demonstrated at university and in the ITC to a scenario that simulates the real-life expectations placed on a newly-qualified CA(SA).

Dear Candidates,

As Head of the College of Accounting at UCT I am delighted to welcome you to the
UCT APC Programme for 2018, which we offer this year for the fifth time.

You embark on our APC programme at a time when the accounting profession is in
turmoil. As future custodians of the CA(SA) qualification, much will be expected of you.
This resonates with one of the pillars of our vision, which is to prepare students to be
responsible business leaders who are technically and professionally competent and
who have a firm grasp of professional ethics.

This year we also celebrate the one hundred-year anniversary of the birth of former President Nelson Mandela who
wrote in the “Long Walk to Freedom” – ‘I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come.
But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.’

I believe that with the support offered by our programme, you will be well placed for the SAICA APC exam in 2018. I wish you all the best for the year ahead.

Professor Goolam Modack
Head – College of Accounting
