I’ve got F8 & F9 left from the fundamentals, now wants peoples recommendations? I’ve had a look at the syllabus and they both seem huge so should i only sit 1?
My past record – not the best to be honest, Dec 11 was the 1st sitting i’ve passed 2 ACCA papers in 1 sitting!
I sat both of these papers in December using self study only (just the text hadn’t discovered Open tuition yet). I failed them both getting 48% on F8 and 46% on F9. However I would say the are both perfectly passable together, I got so close while having a 3 week old baby waking me up in the middle of the night so I’m more than confident they can be done together with a bit more energy & sleep!
F8 is more understanding and the study text is quiet small although going on the pass rates it is a difficult paper. F9 has a huge text book with lots to cover but some of it you may already have seen.
I’m actually going to sit F8, F9, P1 & P2 in June and I feel I can pass them all with some hard work but getting so close in F8, F9 I have a starting point to build on for those exams while giving some extra time to P1 & P2.
Thanks jaysuey51, it really helps to know its possible. ACCA havent helped by changing the exam timetable for F8 & F9 to be a day after another, I personally prefer breaks in between my exams!
I’ve got the open tuition notes for Jun 12 and now i’m ordering kaplan’s exam kits so lets see
im taking f8 and f9 together for june 2012 .. and i think its doable! its a good combination of text and numbers and mostly people Do it without any problems.
I will sit F8 and F9 in June 2012 but with doubts…are 3 months sufficient to pass two exams? Id F8 more difficult than F9?
ofcourse they are sufficient but make your you Utilize you 3 months.. but you have to study every day! keep this in mind!!
