    Hi All,

    I have tried asking this question in another forum but had no luck. I was able to get exception for F1 – F3 due to my undergraduate degree may years ago. I have not taken any accounting classes for a while and my memory is rusty to say the least.

    I am planning on taking F4, F5,F6 and F7 this December. How important is it to know the material in F1, F2. F3 to pass the exams that I intend on taking?

    F1 is not so important, but F2 is extremely important for F5, and F3 is extremely important for F7.

    F5 and F7 both assume that you know most of the topics included in F2 and F3 respectively.

    Thank you very much for your prompt response. Do you think I should try attempting F2 and F3 first? (Which will set me back substantially time wise) due to exam progression rules that a candidate cannot attempt F4 and onward exams without completing the prerequisites of F1-F3.

    From the sound of it, if I were to retain my exemptions and move ahead with my current plan, I should be prepared to study for F2 and F3. This is an equivalent of almost 6 exams.

    I know it’s a generic question but do you think it’s doable given the amount of work involved (if one is committee). I will be studying full time on my own with the help of this site and don’t plan on taking any tuition.

    Thank you again.
