Going a course where one has no interest.
Flying colors in ACCA does not also mean excellent work performance afterwards. Some are just gifted. The question is, how does ACCA tap into such knowledge which their exams tends to bury away? It is obvious such individuals can not cop the exams. “Tough does not mean excellent.” ACCA exams are about how quickly you can burn those brain cells and be able to figure out the answers quickly. But what about the slow learners?
Poor time allocation
conceptual problem..i think some reason for failure in exam is just because of concepts.logic of topics sometime not cleared.
Actually all of six reasons have equal importance.There should be balance between.Any of them could become a reason of students failure in exam.Every one has its unique and specific weakness.
can i know the formula for standard costing can get from whr?
how come the formula gave from my lecture is not same with other exercise?
may be not properly guided
not practicing past papers enough, and sometimes not understanding the exams question it self.
Firstly, the publishers release text book too late, hence givin students a short spave of time to revise, also, ACCA structures in a way that is too confusing, not forgeting the time given to complete the exma is not sufficient
HI are there any lectures for Correction of errors and trial balance for F3
what you see on line, is all there is, look at all F3 lectures available
Is anyone here doing ACCA and CIMA together?
please what are the best book for F1, F2 and F3 . i am a new student and i will writing my first three papers on December .i need a help guys .
BPP are the best. I transferred to Kaplan for the fundamental levels but it did not really helped as much as BPP did. I would recommend you to study with BPP textbooks.
indeed I was busy because I count to practice more to more I will try to practice
The other reason is because good things are hard to get. Just imagine if 95% of the students were to be passing each sitting. This would make ACCA to become worthless.
Experiene tells me that most students are studying for the sake of passing examininations without understanding and knowing the subject matter in and out. As such we fail to pass the examinination when cornered with a problem in an examination room. Of course its the wish of everybody to pass the examinination at the first attempt. This makes us concentrate on probable examination areas leaving the possibles hence we fail.
@zemsoko, with the short space of time and the amount of work that has to be completed before the exam, it cannot be expected of students to no every nity gritty to do with the particular course….its a hassle especially part time
@zemsoko, valuable assessment indeed.. there’s a lot of sense/truth in what you wrote
use your revision kit and past papers…questions, questions and more questions!!!
When will the p6 lectures be posted? Thanks.
There won’t be any p6 lectures
Open tuition is a great service. I have one question though will you ever accept payment for more in depth lectures and papers such as P6? I would not mind paying for some of these great lectures.
i failed one acca paper and that was f6 and the reasons i feel was the stupid exam centre in which the tables were too short and it was soo difficult to write on it and secondly i just got nervous for no reason in exam hall and in pressure paper wasnt finished on time
@Sara222, excuses excuses
@Sara222, True..True…I failed f6 cos my xam tables were too long and I had to strech out to reach my answer book! Eventually,I fell aseep!
@ Tony LOLzzzz
I dun lyk the lecturer of F7, the way he teach is gud enuf to make a listener fall asleep
guyz can some1 tell me the recommended text books for f1 ,f2 ,f3 and f4.am writing exams in dec and i am taking all 4 .plz help.
@tachiefox, Use kaplan study texts
the link is acually on open tuition
I think it’s purely hardworking that rewards u with good results.
Suggession to all keep trying!
and remember quitters are loosers.
I completely agree! i couldn’t have put it better myself
can anyone tell me where to get enough questions to practice. i am currently studying F1 F2 and F3
I think the main problem is not enough knowledge on the subject, I am doing self study F1 & F2, its really very hard for me:( I am saying this because its really hard to understand the notes sometimes. not only that , i do appreciate that open tuition really provides us with good stuff, but still its just really hard and boring to study alone! and the worst thing is that, I am planning to quit ACCA after my june exams:( and thats not really good..
Hi..currently i am studying F1-F3 on a part time basis especially with F 2 …and i am having difficulty in balancing the work and studies.What,how or techniques do you recommend me the possible way on getting me to get through the upcoming exams.Thanks.
@aiman959, it is a good question,
please post it on General ACCA forums
@aiman959, well u should post this in General Forum, since u hav asked, my suggestion would depend on ur working hours. Since i have been working for last 2 yrs and studyng at the same tym, i also face problem since i have late sittings most of the time, but the best practice would be to atleast give half or one hr after work.
I am really troubled about f6 zwe text. Does anyone know where I can get one! Thanks in advance for assistance guys
I would rather say all the reasons would affect your result, but the main reason is the pressure of that situation. I fail mainly bcoz of this reason.. I know everything in the paper but the pressure fails me…
From experience, I would say inadequate question practice by students is the prime reason for failures in the exam.
ACCA is very organised and will never go out of the syllabus. It is not enough covering the whole syllabus; as a matter of fact that is just the beginning!
If a student does enough question practice (under TIMED EXAM CONDITION – Very important) there is no way such student will not at least attain the pass mark in the real exam.
Bisala’s points are quite valid, especially regarding how structured ACCA is. In fact, until recently, i didnt realise how helpful it is to actually study in line with their stated detailed study guideline. Covering the respective key areas in the study guideline will mean that one would be prepared for whatever questions might get thrown.
Well, now that i have made this realisation prior to sitting my recent papers, I hope to utilise the study guide more effectively in the future and like Bisolaa has suggested, will put in more effort toward practising many questions prior to the exam. personally i think that apart from the benefit this can have on time management, it also can serve as a confidence booster.
Looking for more comments to improve ourselves!
speachless…..and looking all ov ur comments buddies….:-)
Time management is one of the main problems as highlighted by the examiner frequently. But why this problem is being repeated by examinees so often? Personally, I feel, some of the case study scenarios were written too for a 50-marker. As a result, the additional 15 minutes reading time is being compromised.
@kono, True! The 15 minutes given is too little time to plan the whole paper. The 3 hours given is broken down into 1.8 minutes per mark and students tend to start using part of the time that they are required to write on the answer sheet still planning. Therefore overshooting the time on each question. Ultimately unable to complete the last questions. I think this is the main reason for failure..
Because Lack of practice & Lack of confidence.its main reasons.
Most of the students at this level should be employed (whether part-timely or permanently). for this reason their level of concentration is divided bwtn studies and work. so there might not be enough time for preparations if time is poorly managed.
Sometimes its the vagueness of the question and writing an answer to what you thought the question asked
yes there should be on day gap…………..must be there………..for those students whose house is far away from examination hall……….ACCA should notice that
Not giving a day between exam paper is another factor for me i believe,from previous experience.Was to tire for the next paper.
