Kindly better advise me to choose my last paper between P4 & P6 ?
Syllabus of which paper is lengthy ?
Which paper is tricky or tough between P4 & P6 ?
These two were my optional and final papers.
I sat them in the last December exam and brought to an end my 2 year ACCA journey.
Personally I chose them for the following reasons:
1. They were the topics that I enjoyed the most at F level
2. F6 and F9 are the papers where I scored the best marks (probably linked to 1. )
3. I am exploring career opportunities in Financial management and Taxation (I am currently a Financial Reporting manager in the banking sector so I needed to fill some knowledge gaps).
I think the 3 above should be the main criteria to consider when choosing your optional papers (not necessarily in that order though!).
The syllabus is huge especially for P6 UK variant, with a lot of rules to remember. I heard that other variants might be less challenging but optional papers are all equally demanding, in my opinion.
P4 is a complex but very interesting paper.
The syllabus is perhaps not that massive but still demanding.
I would also like to mention that if you choose P4 you will be able to enjoy the free, excellent resources available on OpenTuition: lectures, notes, forum.
P6, on the other hand, is not supported.
I self studied for all the papers and the opportunity to have access to these brilliant resources has been strategic for my success.
I will never stop praising OT for that.
P6 is a very specialised paper and could give you an edge if you work/plan to work in Taxation.
Whatever you choose good luck.
