    This survery has been very helpful, really pinpointed the areas which need to be focused and study materials to be thoroughly gone through. Opinion of the students who have a real exam experience is the best.

    everybody should make the best of their time as to those who r working u can spare sometime after work may be 2 hrs and take maximum benefit of the weekend you will be rewarded for hard work it is all a matter of determination and hard work practice lots of questions as much as possible to them over again and do mock exam and past exam questions there is nothing difficult to achieve only that the exams r getting tougher so fellow colleagues never give up no matter how hard it gets always have a positive attitude and say if others can do it why can’t I then you will see how far you go don’t lose courage remain focused and anyway we pay for the exam so we should get the most out of it let’s not lose hope

LOL

    Now I know why most of the students fail ACCA specially Later F papers and P papers, hmm it really looks like it is their own fault for failing due to giving less time to study, not covering syllabus thoroughly which is quite mandatory and relying on tips

        Everyone is different, espec those with family commitments as well as working 37 hrs a week!! where do you find time to study when you’re trying to help your Y6 child pass his sats papers…think on moron

      @joanneallan73 I think you first need to learn how to behave and answer first, even I can use this kind of language but as a professional its not my way, I do also work part time and I have seen many people who are having families and a 40 hours a week job but they manage their time according to plan P.S they also study ACCA and some of them giving ICAEW exams. The Comment I gave is regarding specially those candidates who do not cover their syllabus fully and rely more tips!
