    @mayfikry,

    well first part of cuteleo’s reply was correct anyway :)

    Global variant is like international. It is not related to any specific country! It is based on international law documents , like United Nations Convention on International Sale of Goods (UNSIGS) – the most important document that you will need to study for this paper.
    However u will find references to UK law as example of best practice.

    Hope you already acquired materials for Global variant.
    So download syllabus and use your materials to prepare for exam.

    good luck!

    Then my all time advice is to benefit from EXP resources for F4 Glo.

    http://www.theexpgroup.com/expand/8-f4_corp.__bus._law_glo.html

    nothing helped me in F4 more then those.

    best of luck with exam!
    study UNSIGS as well as u can, as at least 2 or even 3 questions will be based on it.

    Intesting,
    and when i was sitting F4 global,
    exam was based on the syllabus provided in accaglobal.
    and that syllabus is really just international.

    However , information that ansi provides is never reliable…even when it’s really obvious and based on my own experience. (I passed this exam last december.)
    so …i’m just saying what i think :)
    isn’t it, cuteleo ? ;)

    But the syallbus, study guides and all the articles on acca doesnt state that. Why would global be pakistan law, when you already have a pakistan variant?
    Here’s the link http://www2.accaglobal.com/pubs/students/acca/exams/f4/syllabus/f4pkn_sg2012.pdf

    thanks in advance

    DID ANYONE ACTUALLY READ MAYFIKRY’ ORIGINAL POST??

    The post asks for the difference between the UK and the English variant

    OK, here’s a sensible answer – there is no UK version of F4. English law is NOT the same as, for example, Scottish law. English law is law which relates to ENGLAND ( and Wales )

    If the original post had referred to the Global variant and the differences between Global variant and the English variant, then much of Ansi’s comments apply – the BIG difference is the section on the International rules on International contracts ( there is no equivalent section in the English variant )

    Extensive reference is made in the Global variant to relevant parts of English law, so there is a degree of commonality between the two variants.

    Contract law in the English variant is considered in rather greater depth than the Global equivalent.

    There is no section on Sharia law in the English variant whereas there is in the Global version.

    A simple comparison of the two published syllabi would easily answer the question “What’s the difference between ….?”

    But, the answer to the original question, as posted, is “There is no such thing as a UK law variant!”

    @sheilat77707,
    yes you can sit any law variant you want.

    But if you are going to sit it THIS december and you have already paid for it, and u opted for Global, then you won’t be able to change anything.

    If you are going to sit F4 in next exam sittings,
    then you need to check using my acca, which law and tax variant you opted for.
    If you opted for Law – Eng variant, that means by paying for F4 exam, you will be automatically in F4 uk stream.
    If u opted for any other law variant, then you can change it, by sending e-mail to acca.
    But i will repeat, the latter applies only in case if u haven’t paid for your F4 yet.
