I find f9 is very basic subject teaching basic fundmental concept like working capital management, NPV, cost of capital, discounting future cash flow, foreign exchange and so on. if u could imagine that if we studied f9 first would it be easier to study f5 and f7? in f5 and f7, we are assessing financial performance without studying f9 is a joke. i should say study f9 then study such assessment it is easier.
similarly, i feel f4 is more basic than f8. first part of f4 is civil law. and 2nd part is corporate governance. what is f8? Assurance which is sub part of coporate governance. so, f4 is basic and f8 is advanced.
in same way, f6 tax is basic and then f7. if we study f6 and then f7, i guess that will be helpful.
so i wish to say f4, f6 and f9 are basic subjects and f5,f7, f8 are advanced.
Studying F4 first and then f8 is fine.
Im not sure about the f5 f7, f6 and f9 cus I personally did F5,7,9 as a combination for my exam :d I did get stuck with tax when it came to dealing with tax in F7 because I havent done my F6 yet. Although tax isn’t in depth in F7 studying becomes fun when u understand what u study. You can choose to do f6 before doing f7 but you still can attempt f7 before f6 if you prefer does not make much of a difference.
If at all I was asked to make changes to the combination your stated I would change it to F4, F5 F9 and F6 F7 F8 For me it does not matter where F5 goes it will still be good no matter what combination you make. It does not have connections with either papers. But if you really want to follow a good pattern connecting the dots as you study then your way is good
It does make alot of sense studying F9 prior to F7. I remember getting lost with present value when i studied F7 prior to F9 I had to ask around what present value, discounting meant. I made some wrong choices lol so it really helps to have opinions from experienced people
