    Dear Sir,

    on the website here, the notes, videos and revisions refer to F7 International Syllabus.

    Would all these be the same which I can make use of if I want to sit for F7 UK Version. Or will all of these become irrelevant for me?

    Please help me understand if i can start studying everything on here as I want to sit for the UK version of F7

    It would also be very helpful if you can advise me whether to sit for the UK version or International Version? I live in the UK

    Thanks a lot Sir for your much anticipated advice and guidance.

    Hi

    There are increasingly fewer and fewer differences between the two variants and, as time goes on and the UK finally accept that there is intelligent life beyond Great Britain’s shores, those few differences will disappear and Uk GAAP will be adapted to fit the International Standards.

    Your question is tantamount to asking me whether it would be sensible to learn Olde Englishe! Time to move on with the times, I’m sorry to have to tell you. “International” is the way of the future

    Hi Mike,

    Comparing the syllabuses of F7 INT and F7 UK, in most of the part of the study guide ( I would say 90%) both syllabuses are the same. Would you be able to tell that the development of the syllabuses in the study texts is the same for INT & UK, with the exeption that for the UK version there are the “extra” bits, or it is more detailed for the INT version and less for the UK version?

    I came accross to only one study text (bpp) 2011 which says that is for international an UK stream. Is this the only book to study for the
    December 2012 session and then you just need to chose between the two exams when applying to sit the exam?

    Many thanks.

    Eljona

    Hi

    Pretty much. It would be ideal if you could get a 2012 text but a 2011 one will do if you update yourself for the 4 new IFRS ( 10 – 13 )

    It seems to me that “International” is the way to go – the UK will eventually catch up with their continental neighbours :-)

    Hi Damian

    There are one or two cosmetic amendments to make but nothing earth-shattering

    You should be OK – there’s a slight change in the consolidation “comprehensive example” but the amended notes will not be on the site until the new year – probably!
