University of Auckland Double Entry Accounting Test


Accountests has joined with University of Auckland to offer you the opportunity to benchmark your Double Entry Accounting skills with those needed by employers.

The Double Entry Accounting Skills Test is designed to be a fast, simple and efficient way to determine if you have a good grasp of the basics of double entry accounting (i.e. debits and credits).

Double Entry Accounting Skills Test

The test covers four areas:

  • Easy Journals – identifying journals from easy transactions
  • Harder Journals - identifying journals from harder transactions
  • Financial Statements – identifying where accounts will be found in financial statements
  • Transactions – from a journal entry identifying the transaction that has occurred

This test has been specifically designed with the assistance of University of Auckland.

The test consists of 20 questions and you will have 15 minutes only to complete the test. To get the best from the test, complete it on your own in quiet conditions.

After purchasing a test you will receive a link by email. Click on the link to access the test. Once completed you will receive an email with a link to your test report.  This report is in the same format an employer would receive so you need to read it with that in mind.

IMPORTANT NOTE : Purchasing a test allows you only ONE attempt to complete the test. Once you’ve clicked on the link you must complete the test in one go.
