    Agree with Hafeez and we are thankful that OT can provide the forum for us to share and would appreciate any support they can give.My real life scenario – Started ACCA yr 2000 – still not qualified by ACCA stds got promoted from Accounts clerk to Manager in a financial institution over the yrs. Have to resit 4 papers – scores range from 41 to 49. Currently there’s no alternative but to begin revision from all over due to syllabus changes.
    suggestions: ACCA can introduce a resit exam in a shorter time or sent students their marks per question for us to know where we fall short of the pass mark. This can be a guide to help us improve and it would be consistent with transparency.

    Hi there

    Time is running very fast and competition is on unavoidable now a days.
    ACCA unlike other qualifications (American) take long to qualify due to its
    exam polices, because student has to wait for next 6 months to attempt
    subject again (failed paper). ACCA is the most growing professional body from all over the world, but its exam polices and way of exam is still on 20 years old
    parameters. I started ACCA in 2007 and doing job, till now I am unqualifed
    because of system of exams. Number of attempts MUST BE more than TWO in a
    year. So, I request you to please consider to change exam pattern in
    following way:

    Student which has failed in June or Dec attempt, should be allowed to clear
    that paper within two weeks or 40 days INSTEAD of waiting for next time.
    This can save precious time of student. Consider and forward my requested
    to concerned department.

        @admin, Is it possible for Open Tuition to run a survey/poll to see if we can persuade the ACCA to change their exam sittings so re-sits can be done sooner? Luckily I havn’t had to do a re-take, but if I did I would be very frustrated at having to wait six months.

        @pankajvs, hi, yes indeed we can run a poll. and send the results to ACCA,
        don’t think ACCA will listen, not even sure, how many students will support it, but we can try.. in a few days expect to see the poll,
        if you like, reply here, with your suggested poll question, and choices..

        @admin, Thank you sir for considering to do this. It will greatly help all ACCA students who need to resit papers. I am sure with over 120,000 registered users quite a chunk will want this to happen and will vote. As for ACCA it will also be worthwile mentioning on the poll that students can second your survey by choosing the suggestions and also directly writing to ACCA through their myACCA emails.
        This is just a suggestion.
