With effect from 26 February 2014, the structure of both the computer based examination and the paper based F1 examination will change.
Instead of the current structure of 50 objective questions of two marks each, the exam will consist of two sections:
- Section A will contain 16 one mark objective questions and 30 two mark questions objective test questions (pick one answer from a number of alternatives).
- Section B will contain 6 four mark multi-task questions. Multi-task questions (MTQs) contain a series of tasks which relate to one or more scenarios.
All questions are compulsory and the pass mark is 50%
There are no changes to the syllabus and so there is nothing new to study, but it is important that you make sure you are familiar with the new structure.
The ACCA has prepared specimen exams in the new structure.
