      Why not do the resits for June especially since the Tax rules change this yr. and even though F5 will be a resit don’t under estimate it as many persons sit it over 3 times before passing so i would recommend going back and seeing where you were not clear and practice as much pass papers for both exams.

      then focus solely on F7 for September.

      P2 is a big paper and based on the comments here and overall difficulty I did it alone and passed first sitting.

      P1 and P3, i see where a lot of persons combine these two together and pass.

      I believe that you need to look at how much time you have to study and if you are good at written vs computation and take that into consideration when making up your mind.

      I believe its best to know your strengths and weaknesses when deciding what papers to sit next sitting. i know when doing the fundamentals i only failed the written papers even if its by only 2 marks i never failed the computational papers even if it is just hitting it with 50 on the dot i never had to repeat those.

      knowing that a paper like P2 other than the 35 mark consol. the rest is mainly writing it means working twice as hard.

      I believe its best to sit a paper once and give it your all than attempt two and end up fail one. face it if the F papers where hard wouldn’t the P’s be harder.

      which is why i’m glad that ACCA will now have 4 sittings per year. gives me two months to study and one for revision.

      That is a good combo as they both require mastering of the standards, however, you didn’t mention if you cleared P3 which you need to do since you cant skip it (at least not until September).

        Yes you can – but it’s an additional expense :-(

        If you enter for P2, P3 AND P7 for June, but then only attend the exam hall for P2 and P7, then that’s how you can do P7 before you have even attempted P3

        But you waste the exam fee for P3
