The new IFA units are based upon the outgoing 2010 IFA syllabus. The units are expressed in a more succinct and concise way. They essentially address the same learning points and help you develop the skills you need in the different areas of financial accounting but are worded in a simpler format.
The ethics units are there to ensure that you have some structured ethics training and assessment to prove your fitness to progress to IFA membership. The assessment is scenario- based with short questions which the IFA pass to you via email and you complete in your own time.
