I was wondering if I should attempt p7 again or just choose p5 as an alternative. I’m preparing for p7 now for december session and honestly I’m not very confident about passing. I have already attempted p7 3 times all with 42 marks (dec16) 49 marks (mar17) 46 marks (june17)
I was very confident that i will pass in march 17 but got only 49 and in june only 46.
I’m really upset with p7 and thought maybe p5 would be a better choice?
I was told if i scored high marks in fundamental level it will help in the p level exams. I scored only 52 marks in F8 so maybe thats the reason I’m scoring low in the p7 exam?
I’m really not sure about this and would like to seek advice on this!
Thank you so much!September 9, 2017 at 1:05 pm
the syllabus in P5 may seem easy, but the paper is not! you can have a look at the avg. pass rates of this exam, it is the lowest for a reason.. i think if you already have marks in 40’s means you know how to answer the questions, you are gaining marks, just a little more and you will pass..
Moreover with P5, the questions are vague, not to the point.. so there are a number of possible answers that come up in your mind.. i would suggest you stick to P7.September 9, 2017 at 1:16 pm
Thanks so much I will stick to P7 🙂
I really didn’t know earning 50 marks is that difficult!September 9, 2017 at 8:19 pm
Yh i agree..it would be nwise to go start studying for p5 when your marks are already near a pass for p7. i recommend you just study and practice a bit more but just dont continue doing the same thing and expect a different result…tweak things a bit and that will be sufficient. read some more and pratcie more past papers…all the bestSeptember 10, 2017 at 5:27 pm
Just a quick question please, did you answer all questions in the paper you scored 49 marks?September 14, 2017 at 6:05 am

Thank you so much for your advice. i will stick to p7 and do things differently from before. And I will also practice alot more past papers. 🙂September 14, 2017 at 6:13 am

Yes, I think i finished all the questions the time i get 49 marks. Just have 6 or 7 marks left unanswered. 🙂 But i make sure to jot down an answer for every question which I think is not wise because p7 require quality and not quantity.September 14, 2017 at 12:31 pm
past paper practice and covering the whole syllabus (if possible) is key to passing P7 for meSeptember 23, 2017 at 1:08 pm
Wish you all the best for your December Exams..September 23, 2017 at 1:11 pm
Just wondered if we should spare some time to verify what we have written in the exams before submitting our paper to the invigilator. Do you think we should do that or it is not necessary?September 24, 2017 at 5:49 pm
I’ve been taught to highlight in the exam paper, and write 1 word notes for myself on the question paper as I read the scenario in Q1, that helps with writing the answer and I can say that with experience.
Then when writing the answer, try to take 2/3 seconds to see which is the most important risk (BR/AR/RMM) for the business and try and write them in order of priority for the business, as that will help score 1 of the 4 professional marks.
In section B, you know that Q5 is always on audit report, so best to practice as many of them as possible and after every attempt, critically appraise your answer (do this for Q1 too) and hopefully that will help you get a pass in P7.
Don’t give up, you’ll get through one day.
