    I’m not sure if it is feasible to attempt P2 as home study…..you will need to be very aware of the IFRSs and IASs in detail, as any of these can be tested….there are quite a few of them, so have a look at the P2 syllabus to get an idea of this.

    In addition, you’ll need to make sure that you are happy with a consolidated balance sheet, consolidated income statement and consolidated cash flow, as any of these can be tested in the section A question, worth approx. 50% of the paper.

    I studied with Kaplan, where it was useful to have a plan of how to go through the workings for each scenario (consolidated balance sheet, etc), and that’s what you can stick with to prepare yourself for any eventuality.

    I am sure that there are others out there who have studied P2 self-study and have been successful in passing the paper, so it may be useful to get some tips from them.

    I don’t know if this helps, but whatever the situation, I wish you good luck in your studies!


    I hope it is possible I am attempting this paper home study I am repeating but it was 2 years ago since I attempted this paper so much has changed. I am just working through the Kaplan book & hope to do lots of questions from the kit. The only thing is I might do the revision weekend I am lucky to have one near by.

    I know its a huge amount of work so I hope to get involved in the study group on this site for help on difficult areas.
    So good luck with the study
