    Dear John,
    I couldn’t pass my F2, F3 and F5 exams during 3 months without your help. I am grateful to you. Thank you very much and please wish me success on my coming exams – F7 and F9 :)

      As you will know from the pages on this website summarising the changes in December for each paper, there are no syllabus changes for Paper F9.

      The only change for F9 is that the format of the exam will change (with the introduction of some multiple choice questions).

      We always make sure that our Course Notes and lectures are up to date, and the only lecture for F9 that needs re-recording is the Introduction lecture. Most of it is still completely valid but it does refer to the old exam format and so this bit needs updating. Otherwise all of the lectures are completely valid for December.

        Hi. Thanks a lot for your comments. We all studied and qualified as accountants in the UK – then started teaching. I guess it is because we have been teaching for a very long time :-))

        I am pleased that the exam went well for you :-)

      I am sorry, but what can you expect us to do?
      We provide the service free of charge to help as many people as we can.
      You may not be able to watch the videos, but you can still download the free Course Notes, and you can still get help from the Ask the Tutor forums.

      The only way we can keep the website free is to only allow videos to be watched online. We are not the ACCA and get no finance from them.

      You can use other tuition providers for lectures, but they will be online also and they will charge!!

    Dear John,
    I have one thing to ask that can help so many users on OT. I just use OT, no other tuitions or universities. The OT helps indeed but I always find it difficult to check my answers that I write for Kit questions( specially theoretical). Sometimes I feel that I have written very well, but there’s not any point that replicates the Kit’s answer to with my own…
    So my General question is to seek your help regarding checking own answers for KIT Questions( e.g, f8 or f9).

    Kindly share techniques and tips for this, it could really help the OT viewers alot alot…including me!

    Many Thanks

      The Revision/Exam Kits do contain much longer answers for the written parts than is expected in the examination. The same applies to the examiners own answers.
      The reason is that they all realise that students use the answers to learn from and so they are trying to help.

      When checking your own answer, the best is to look at the marking scheme provided by the examiner (it is printed at the end of all the official exam answers). This is what the markers use when they are marking, and it makes it clear what points they are looking for and how many marks they are giving for each point.

      You are not expected to write long essays – all that is needed is to make the point and write enough to make it clear that you understand what you have written (and have not just learner a phrase from a text book )

      The only way really that we can help (and are gradually trying to do) is by recording our answers to past exam questions. There are quite a few online already and we are gradually adding more.
      In these we try and make it clear what points you should be making, and why.

        Bundle of thanks…Man you might dont know how important this information was for me!! I SUGGEST you that you should keep a separate portion on teaching just on how to answer. It could really add some passing marks to those who are failing or even its the first attempt.

        Its not really necessary that you must make a video. You can just add short 100-150 words article. The whole audience believe your every word.

        Many Thanks
