What is ‘seeding’?
The practice of ‘seeding’ is the inclusion of questions in an exam that do not contribute to a student’s result.
Seeded content is a best practice method of ensuring that our students continue to sit fair and equal exams, and receive reliable results. This is another reason why the ACCA Qualification will continue to be recognised on more education frameworks and by more regulators and professional bodies than any other accountancy body - keeping our students and members relevant and in-demand.
Will I know which questions are the ‘seeded content’?
The 10 marks of seeded content will either be one Objective Test (OT) case (five OT questions based around a single scenario) or five singular OTs. Students will not be informed and will not be able to determine which questions are the seeded questions, as they are randomly distributed within the exam.
