    Dear Mike,
    I got 43 on p2. It was horrible. I did not have an IDEA of how to deal with the 1rst question regarding cash flows. I felt very vulnerable preparing for p2. And I think I paid the price. This is sad for me because I gave p2 n p3 this time and failed and this is my first ever failure in an exam. I was hoping to get a pass in p3 but even that turned out to be a fail! (with 41 marks!) So now I have to repeat both these, plus I have already enrolled and taking classes for p4 and p7. I wanted june 2011 to be my final session. Now I want some help from you:

    1) I work part time so I cant study full time like 8 hours a day. But I have an urge to appear for all 4 papers and although this seems to be impossible.. I just want your advice on it because one of the main things about my objectives with ACCA is, I want to get over with it very very soon.

    2) If I appear for three papers in june 2011, what do you suggest would be the best combination.. p3 p4 p7 or p2 p3 p7 .? I cant skip p7 out of the schedule because the tuition fee will be wasted. What’s the ideal combination at this point in time.

    3) I am also taking up the Obu RAP. Is it advisable to appear for 3 papers at all.

    I would be very thankful for your response! I am very disheartened.

    Why not try P2, P4 and P7? That way, no tuition fees will be lost – you’ll need to enter for P3 and pay the entry fee, but then don’t turn up.
    P2 because you’ve already got the basics, and P4 and P7 because you’re taking classes for them.

    Then knock off P3 in December and …..!!!!!

    mike! I thought about this.. thanks for replying but it so happend by the time I read ur reply I already annulled my p4 fee! Reason being I didn’t start p4 I havn’t as yet, and because of the OBU rap keeping me busy its hard for me to imagine how I’ll go thru it I am just scared of p4 its hard to find people to pass it first time

    Hi

    I think reconstructions are the topic of a chapter in the course notes – from memory. The SMEs – there’s an article – I think by Graham Holt – in Student Accountant towards the end of last year. There’s nothing about SMEs in the course notes – I seem to remember that I hadn’t read enough about them to justify a chapter in the notes
