I have just registered as an ACCA student, I am exempt from F1 and therefore am about to start studying for F2. I intend to enrol on tuition courses for June exams but would like to take a computer based exam or 2 prior to then so am going to start with F2 and see how I go – hoping to self study for the first couple, wish me luck!
Anyway, I work full time – and not in an accountancy environment – so I am just wondering how many exams it would be reasonable to expect to be able to sit at one time – would I be able to sit 2 exams in June?
Would be interested to hear from anyone in a similar situation (working full time in non accountancy role) – thanks!January 15, 2012 at 3:19 pm
You are on the right way. Two papers per sitting is always the optimal choice.
I do not suggest u to take more.January 19, 2012 at 11:40 pm
4 by June sounds tough! I’m just starting out too so I’m afraid I don’t have any advice for you, but I wondered which 2 you were planning to take after F2 and F3 are done?
All the best!January 24, 2012 at 7:32 am
Thanks for the advice ansi.
Fearnlove – I haven’t got as far as figuring out which order to take the exams in yet – I was planning to self study for F2 and then enrol in tuition for F3 & F4 together, however I am not sure with the exam progression rules whether I am allowed to sit F4 if I have not yet passed F3? And I had in my head that I would just do them in number order seeing as I have to do them all eventually and therefore no point in picking and choosing, however having read other people’s info it seems that some modules complement others so I guess I need to think about that, I will probably take advice from the tuition provider I plan to enrol with.
Good luck to you too if you are just starting out! Not sure I realise what I am letting myself in forJanuary 26, 2012 at 7:32 pm
hI nicr good luck with your studies. me too i have started studying after few years break since2008 and i am taking only one exam in June 2012. the reason why i am writting is that you say that you are working full time and want to do 3 papers!!!!!omg i do not know how can you do it. please tell me how do you do it. where do you find the time. i work full time &family and children to take care and find hard to find time to study.
