Failed at first attempt. Those who did well, please share your tips to pass this paper. 🙁April 17, 2017 at 6:06 pm
Passed at first attempt with 53% , thank you Jesus, thanks open tuitionApril 17, 2017 at 9:40 pm
Hey, guys! Passed with 56% at the second attempt. Thank God!) The first attempt I scored 49.
1. Believe in yourself, forget what happened and start fresh. Never give up. I know how it feels when you see 49, you analyse what you could have written thinking this or that idea probably could have helped to earn that 1 point. Dont do that, dont spend your time on this, it wont change anything, you’ll only lose your energy. Seriously.
I failed a lot of times and what I think is if you fail, someone wants you to go through this again, and during this new journey you will learn something new you have missed in your previous attempts.
I have a colleague who scored 48% and immediately started his preps to the June session. So, don’t waste your time.
2. As less disruption as possible. When you read/study/practice/do your mock and etc turn off your phone. Nobody dies if you’ll be offline for a couple of hours. Only silence, you and books. Trust me, you’ll feel how addicted you are to checking your whatsapps (or whatever) every 3 mins. But, c’mon, turn it off for the studying time. It’s for your benefit, isnt it?
3. A week before the exam (or so) I opened the detailed sillabus and just looked through it, making sure I know and remember as much as possible. If not satisfied with what I know/remember about smth in particular, read through the chapter again and refresh basic points.
4. Practice, practice, practice, practice and again, practice 🙂
5. Oh, practice. Did I mentioned that? 🙂
6. Pray 🙂
Best of luck to all of you!April 17, 2017 at 10:13 pm

Better clear the essential papers first. P1 & P3 is going to merge into a 4 hour paper and P2 will be harder to pass.April 18, 2017 at 7:36 am
passed the paper, mainly used the revision kit. practice as many numbers as possible from past papersApril 18, 2017 at 8:09 am
Thought I had failed as the exam only touched on the Risk part of the syllabus.
Passed with 58%
Open Tuition and BPP Books.
For anyone wondering can they get the pass on this with a couple months of decent study – definitely possible.April 18, 2017 at 8:19 am
can u give some tips on how to study this p1…i only studied kaplan revision kit and failed at 49%…is it coz i didnt touch kaplan textbook i couldnt make it up?April 18, 2017 at 9:35 am
Passed with 66%…passed P3 at the same time so now an affiliate!April 18, 2017 at 9:41 am
I strongly advise you to read the Retake guide on acca website. It says if you scored between 45 and 49, that it is because you had a poor exam technique. So if you feel like that you probably should work on your technical skills. I used ATC books, open tuition videos, technical articles, examiner’s reports and guide on retake.April 18, 2017 at 10:05 am
passed in 2nd attempt. last time 39 and now 53 🙂April 18, 2017 at 10:23 am
I thank God for His mercies.
Passed F9 at 3rd attempt 41% Jun 2016, 47% Sept 2016, 52% March 2017. This exam scared me badly especially with the cash budget stuff, I was so confused but thank God its over.
Passed P1 at 1st attempt with 64%.
I have got the dreaded P4 and P7 left to go in June 2017…. so help me God!
Thank you open tution…you guys rock. God bless you big time.April 18, 2017 at 12:29 pm
so merely just doing the practice kit is a waste of time?,i think i did my p1 practice kit for atleast 3 times.April 18, 2017 at 1:34 pm
I passed on the first attempt. 57%. I used open tuition video lectures and lecture notes plus last 3 sessions’ past question papers (I downloaded from the ACCA website). I started studying a week before the exams and I do not advice anyone to do this because I left the exam very confused and afraid i’d fail.April 18, 2017 at 2:32 pm
I passed P1 with 69% for the second attempt (first attempt in December was with only 41%). What I did differently? I have focused more on the question practise rather than on theory. I was bad with time management, did not touch the third question for 25 points but overall I had to had good answers if I got 69% from those 75% answered. So practice, practice, practice. Theory is essential and solid start for your answer plan but will not make you pass. Good luck all for your next exams!April 18, 2017 at 2:51 pm
Did you start with question 1 or optional questions first?April 18, 2017 at 2:59 pm
Congrats!April 18, 2017 at 8:10 pm
54% 2nd attemptApril 19, 2017 at 12:28 pm
