    I am a foreign student in UK, I have 3 papers left, I don’ see any use of studying ACCA, do you think it’s worth studying and completing ACCA, if you have only 20hrs work permit per week

      @subash, hi subash, i’ve been exactly where you are right now and I know how tough it can be, to keep focus and the momentum to keep going. In fact you’ve done really well, considering that you’re only left with 3 papers to finish. As an international student I would ask you to widen your scope beyond the UK. The truth is the qualification would be a great treasure especially back home where you come from. So, don’t give up or given in at any cost.

    Hi Admin,

    Sorry what I meant was, is the resources provided by your website enough to achieve high grades on the F4-9 exams, i.e. over 75% or would you suggest I purchase other reading material?


    • Avatar of admin says

      it is not just the materials but it also depends on the student, :)

      you definitely need up to date revision kit,

      get the notes and watch the lectures for few topics and then see, if you understand it well enough to do past questions..
      then you will get your answer ;)

    Hi admin,

    Firstly I would like to thank you for all course notes and lectures that you provide on your website, I have passed F1, F2 and F3 exams entirely on your resources.

    I am enrolling on the Oxford Brookes degree course and would like to achieve high grades on each F exam. Can you please confirm whether I need pay for BPP books for extra support or does your material cover everything and is up-to-date?

    Thank you for your help.

    i would like to thank the OT for providing such wonderful lectures on the topics, they are really a great resource for quick revision as well as for clarifying any ambiguities in concept. Further, i would like to mention how helpful, Ask the tutor forums are. I gave four fundamentals and in my last days of prep. i used these lectures extensive for revision, well, i passed all of my exams.

    Thanks to OT ;)

      @estorka, well incase, u are a full time student , u can take the chance but it is still risky. Especially with F8 and F9 on the hand.

      i gave four fundamentals F4,6,8 and 9 and i passed them all. But i had to go thru a lot of though time even being a full time student.

      my advice, if u are confident and can study more than 12 hours in last one and half month..GO FOR IT !!!

    I attempted F9 (43%) and P3 (54%) in December, however I signed up for P2 and P7 before getting results. I’m thinking of continuing with P2 and P7 in June and doing F9 with P4 in December. Any thoughts ?

    P3, P4 and P5 would be ok as they are all based more on the consultancy / management accountancy side of the fence with enough cominality to make them a good single sitting combination.

    P7 is best sat with P2 as P7 expects all of the knowledge required for P2 plus the addition of audit standards and ethics.

    Trust me. P7 is a huge undertaking and it’s one where many come away from it after writing huge amounts with a feeling as though they’ve passed only for a fail to hit their inboxes a couple of months later (been there, done that, got the T shirt, writing the book).
