Hi, I’m going to start studying for F3 and sit my exam in Sept, will these lectures be relevant or require updating?
June 26, 2018 at 11:57 pm
I want to do mines in sept as well but I was wondering if this is sufficient to pass

Good afternoon sir,
I have passed F3 test today! Thanks a lot for your lectures, everything is explained so clearly and I truly like the examples given in class to help us understand. Honestly, your lectures are the best ACCA lectures I have ever taken 🙂 I will continue study on open tuition and recommend it to all of my friends!
February 23, 2018 at 3:38 pm
Thank you very much for your comment, and many congratulations on passing the exam 🙂
January 8, 2018 at 7:34 am
Dear Lecturer, thanks a lot for the lectures, for the way you present the information in such understandable way. Today I passed F3 CBE. I am so happy and I am going to continue self-study with opentuituon and recomment this site to my friends.
January 8, 2018 at 8:43 am
Thank you for your comment, and many congratulations on passing the exam 🙂
April 12, 2018 at 3:44 pm
did you use any other material other than the above to pass your exam? I usually pay for the online learning costing around $275pounds im looking for a cheaper option?
November 2, 2017 at 7:59 am
I’ve just passed my CBE in F3 with 64% . Thank you Opentuition! Your lectures and notes were more than sufficient in order to cover every aspect of the examination! I will recommend you to anyone I know who would like to start the ACCA!
November 2, 2017 at 4:09 pm
Thank you for your comment, and many congratulations on your exam result 🙂
September 17, 2017 at 9:59 pm
Hi. I would like to thank you for the invaluable support you provided to me. It has been 21 days that I have started to use opentuition.com and in the end I’ve passed my exam with 81%. I especially appreciate the information and advice you have provided.Thank you so much,again. 🙂

October 15, 2017 at 12:35 am
hi i am writing monday i do not even know which video to watch or skip ,, maybe the nerves are doing the most to me
please help on which specific videos should I LOOK AT
October 15, 2017 at 6:55 am
You should watch all of the lectures – they are a complete course. If you have already finished your studying then you should watch those topics that you find the most difficult.
August 27, 2017 at 7:43 am
Hi ! No doubts….but just A BIG THANKS to Open Tuition and the awesome teachers I passed my First ACCA exam (F3) with 78% ….all credit goes to Open Tuition!
Thanks a lot
August 27, 2017 at 7:45 am
Sorry in place of these question marks there were emojis !

April 4, 2017 at 8:32 am
Is it a must to have a revision kit?
April 4, 2017 at 3:05 pm
You really should buy one because it is vital to practice as many exam standard questions as possible if you are to pass the exam. The Revision Kits are full of exam standard questions.
October 17, 2016 at 7:55 am
I will be away from home at the weekend with no access to the internet.
Is there a way to watch these lectures offline?
October 17, 2016 at 1:19 pm
No – they can only be watched online. It is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.
October 17, 2016 at 5:49 pm
no problem . thanks for the reply 🙂
October 18, 2016 at 7:46 am
You are welcome 🙂
September 8, 2016 at 11:03 am
Sir, You have mentioned there’s a test available, But in the practice questions, its said no test for this chapter. Can you tell me where should I look for the test?
September 8, 2016 at 2:43 pm
Sorry – we used to have tests at the end of each chapter of the lecture notes (and this is what the lecture is referring to – I must cut that out of the lecture).
We have now removed them, and all the tests we have available are those in the list of online practice tests that are linked from the main Paper F3 page.
(Do appreciate that the tests are only very short tests. You must buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers to use when you have finished your studying. They have lots of exam standard questions for practice, and practice is vital for passing the exam.)
September 9, 2016 at 5:39 pm
Thank You sir.

August 30, 2016 at 1:37 pm
Hi I’ve watched the videos but the book I am using doesnt sync up with what you’re saying. Could you tell me what material you are using? Or if its on the website what link is it because I’ve downloaded the lecture notes and they aren’t what I’m looking for.
August 30, 2016 at 2:28 pm
As it says at the start of each video, the lectures work through our free lecture notes.
The link to download them is immediately above the lecture on the right hand side, and says on it “Download F3 notes”.
June 1, 2016 at 2:47 pm
I am sorry but i am new to this site and i did not see any question on Page 4. As you said above to a comment that it has been removed from notes but where can i find these practice questions on F3 page. A link would be very appreciated. Thank you so much for the work your doing.
June 1, 2016 at 3:18 pm
Instead of tests in the lecture notes, we now have online practice tests for each chapter.
You can find them linked from the main Paper F3 page: http://opentuition.com/acca/f3/
August 25, 2016 at 8:07 pm
Hi I am also new and when I click on the link you send several different links appear and I’m not sure as to where to go. If you could help me out when you get a chance I’d really appreciate it, thanks.
August 26, 2016 at 6:18 am
It depends what it is you want – all the links are described if you scroll down the page!
If you want the practice tests then you click on the link called ‘practice tests’ (although obviously there is no point in doing that unless you have downloaded the free lecture notes and watched the free lectures first).
The ‘introduction’ video on the page explains how to use the material available.
May 23, 2016 at 7:23 pm
I’m very grateful to you Sir & Open Tuition. So far I’ve been successful in F1 & F3 using only your material. I recommend this site to all current & prospective ACCA students. Looking forward to greater accomplishments with opentuition.com! – Happy self-study student. 🙂
August 19, 2017 at 11:23 pm
u studied for how long?
May 14, 2016 at 2:17 pm
Thank you sir for your lectures. My question is, are you saying that among those three types of business entities, apart from accounting purposes are they not separate entity as by law?
or is it just the limited liabilities company that are by law separate ?
May 14, 2016 at 3:23 pm
It is just limited companies that are separate from the owners in law.
May 4, 2016 at 8:30 am
Hi sir, Can U explain the different between financial reporting and financial accounting? Thx
May 4, 2016 at 11:15 am
Financial reporting is the preparation of the financial statements. Financial accounting is the recording of transactions in order to be able to prepare the financial statements.
As far as Paper F3 is concerned they are really very much the same thing, and it is all covered within our free lectures.

John M. are you a real human being? I am simply amazed at your level of efficiency, commitment and excellence. You are ever so kind to the users of this forum and respond quickly to so many messages/questions from us. You should be given a humanitarian award. You are selfless and excellence in itself. I can’t think of better words to connote you than “Summa Cum Laude!!” You are of the highest excellence and honor. Although the term is used academically, i have redefined its use.
I just wish you had a slight idea about how you have pulled me up from the holes i dug and hid myself away from accounting. What nobody or textbook could do for me, you did digitally. You will never know…..
April 15, 2016 at 6:56 am
Thank you for the comment 🙂
March 19, 2016 at 11:10 am
Hi using March/June 2016 Exam lecture notes, there is no question on page 4 am I missing something?
March 19, 2016 at 5:32 pm
Sorry. It is because there used to be tests at the end of each chapter of the notes. These have now been removed and instead we have online practice tests for each chapter. You can find these linked from the main Paper F3 page.
January 24, 2016 at 5:37 am
Hi . I have a little confusion concerning the answer of this question. How does a company account for a contingent asset that is not ? A By way of note B As an asset in the statement of financial position C It does nothing D Offset against any associated liability why contingent asset is probable As an asset in the statement of financial position, I mean the contingent asset is not an asset,so contingent asset only is allowed to be disclosed in the notes to the accounts
January 24, 2016 at 9:21 am
You must ask questions like this in the Ask the Tutor Forum, and not as a comment on a lecture.
I suggest that you watch our free lecture on contingent assets and liabilities.
December 21, 2015 at 6:57 pm
sir plz tell i had a question on my paper they have the purchase price and a discounted price price of alloy wheel petrol insurance and need to print the name of company on car which items are included in the price?plz tell me
December 22, 2015 at 7:03 am
Why have you asked this as a comment on this lecture? This is dealt with in later lectures, and anyway please ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum in future and not as a comment on a lecture.
I assume that what you are actually asking is how much of the total price should be capitalised and appear on the Statement of financial position. If so it should be everything except for the petrol and the insurance (they appear as expenses in the Statement of profit or loss).
November 9, 2015 at 2:12 pm
Hi . I have a little confusion concerning the answer of this question. AN asset is A. An item owned by an entity B. An item controlled by an entity Which one is the correct answer ?
November 9, 2015 at 4:17 pm
You must ask questions like this in the Ask the Tutor Forum and not as a comment on a lecture.
An asset is something controlled by an entity. (Usually that will mean that they own it, but there can be situations where the control it without actually legally owning it).
October 21, 2015 at 3:07 am
Hi , I have a confusion. why capital is a special kind of liability, I mean the business owes to the owner?
October 21, 2015 at 8:20 am
Yes – the money is owed to the owner (it is not owed to ‘outside’ people).
Money owed to other people must be repaid – if the business cannot afford to repay it, then the business has to close down (and for a sole trader, the owner has to pay it).
If you watch the next lecture in the course then all of this is explained.
November 9, 2015 at 2:17 pm
What about for partnership? It also have unlimited liability right? – the partners pay it or it close down ?
November 9, 2015 at 3:37 pm
Yes – and I do say this in the lectures.
October 20, 2015 at 3:00 pm
Where is the answer to the question on page 4 of “Introduction to Accounting” posted. I have gone through the question and know the answer but would like to verify it.
October 20, 2015 at 6:13 pm
If you look at the contents page of the free lecture notes, you will see what page all of the answers to the tests are on 🙂
September 17, 2015 at 1:20 pm
i intend on writing CBE this december and starting my reading today. Do i still have enough time to read and follow your lectures
September 17, 2015 at 1:30 pm
Yes – certainly.
September 17, 2015 at 9:06 am
If we see lectures and notes also revision kits. Don’t need tutor or inaitute or necessary????
September 17, 2015 at 9:08 am
The lectures, notes and Revision Kits are enough 🙂
August 2, 2015 at 4:31 am
why i can’t see this video lectures :3
August 2, 2015 at 8:30 am
The lecture is working fine – the problem must be at your end. Look for help on the support page (the link is above, under the heading “technical problems”). If you do not find a solution there, then ask on that page.
August 2, 2015 at 1:18 pm
i tried but i don’t find out the problem
i tried another browser but it still failure
i don’t know why
August 2, 2015 at 4:26 pm
try Tor Browser
October 19, 2015 at 4:22 pm
Yes. Maybe VIMEO is blocked in your country.
July 21, 2015 at 12:31 pm
hello sir,hopefully you are doing good!i have started f3 and i have some questions please,i want to score 90+,should i use both bpp and kaplan text or use one of them?how many hours/chapters per day will help me to get my goal?should i practice questions from both the kits or one of approved is enough?as you stated that”practice under time pressure”now should i practice kits under time pressure or you are talking about mock exam?
July 21, 2015 at 2:24 pm
You should watch all of our free lectures, in order, with the free lecture notes in front of you.
When you have done that, then you should practice and practice from the Revision Kits. If you have both then use both – the more practice the better. The first time you attempt the questions then take as long as you need and spend time sorting out where you go wrong. Later, attempt the questions again, but this time under time pressure – it is when you are rushing that you are likely to make silly mistakes or forget things.
You don’t really need to use the Study Texts if you are watching our lectures. Best is to use them more as a reference book on any areas that you do not feel happy about.
Any problems, ask in the Ask the Tutor Forum and we will try our best to help.
July 22, 2015 at 7:34 am
thank you so much for the suggestions,i will follow those..
August 4, 2015 at 12:44 am
You mention there is no need for the study text with OT lecture and notes. Does that apply to all the papers or just F3?
August 4, 2015 at 7:58 am
It applies to all papers. The only extra book you should get is a Revision Kit.
July 17, 2015 at 2:39 am
Pls can it be possible to download the lecture videos this is because my schedule won’t allow me to watch it online
July 17, 2015 at 8:20 am
Lectures can only be watched online – it is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.
July 4, 2015 at 10:00 pm
hi i am sorry but i really mean how long the lecture will be available i now start study because i writing exam august computer base
thank you so much
July 4, 2015 at 10:04 pm
there is no plan to remove the lectures or close the site..
we hope to attract more students to use opentuition.. not close it down
June 5, 2015 at 3:52 pm
Hi please inform me of the answer to the question on page 4. thank you
June 5, 2015 at 4:16 pm
The answers to all of the test questions are at the end of the Lecture Notes – if you look at the contents page you will see where.
June 5, 2015 at 5:09 pm
June 5, 2015 at 10:04 am
hi, I hear Sports news at the background. Is it intentional to disrupt me from concentrating or you just want to demonstrate you can do two things at the same time?
June 5, 2015 at 10:36 am
There is definitely no sports news in the background!! Do you really think we would be so childish?
I suggest that you check what other webpages you have open at the same time – the sports news must be coming from another website that you have open!
May 21, 2015 at 6:26 pm
Hi Mr John…Why are the financial statements of sole traders considered to be private???….Thank you…
May 21, 2015 at 7:05 pm
If I am a sole trader, then the business is me. Any money that the business gets is my own money. The only reason I would prepare accounts for the business is so that I can see whether the business is doing OK or not (because obviously I might myself be getting money from places other than from the business).
So, just like you have no right to see what money I am getting myself, you have no right to see how much money is coming from my business. It is private to me.
There may be times that I do show my accounts to other people. For example, if I wanted to borrow money from the bank, then I might show them my accounts so they could see how much money the business is making. But that is my choice.
However, if it is a limited company, then although I might own the shares, the limited company is separate in law. If the company cannot pay what it owes, then it is not my problem. Therefore the law says that anyone has the right to see the accounts of a limited company.
Suppose you were thinking of selling goods to my business on credit – so you will get paid later. If you know I am very rich, then you would not be worried selling to me as a sole trader because if you do not get paid you can take me to court and I am rich. But if you sold goods to a limited company, then you could not take me to court – even if I am rich – you could only take the limited company to court, and if the company had no money you have a big problem. So with a limited company you are able to look at their accounts and see whether or not you think they can afford to pay you before you sell goods to them.
May 21, 2015 at 11:50 pm
How about this scenario…..I own business limited company…During my business years I receive goods from suppliers on credit and loans from banks and in the end I turn most of business assets into cash and I make them my own cash not business’s….As a result I can become rich and business goes bankrupt…..Is it possible….Have these kind of cases happened before…Thank you…
May 22, 2015 at 12:15 am
Why do national accounting standards exist…Can’t all countries just follow IFRS ?…
May 22, 2015 at 7:29 am
Both of these questions are dealt with in the later lectures – the lectures cannot cover everything all at once 🙂 The first chapters are about sole traders and later we bring in limited companies.
However, what you write in your first question is not possible, because (as you will find out in the lecture on Limited Companies), companies are only allowed to pay out as dividend the profits that have been made.
With regard to IFRS’s, it is like asking why do not all countries have exactly the same laws on everything 🙂 However, most countries are moving to IFRS’s (except the US – but there accounting standards are mostly very similar to IFRS’s and over time maybe they will be exactly the same).
May 11, 2015 at 11:24 pm
its quite unfair for users in Nigeria not to be able to access video lectures. i really want to know what you all think we are, i am really disgruntled and dissatisfied. you may cancel my logon, if you wont allow us all acess to the video. we will find another website that will trust and appreciate us and not punish all for the sin of a few. finally pls cancel my acess totally or give us all access to the video……………….
May 12, 2015 at 7:15 am
Don’t be so ridiculous. Students in Nigeria are able to watch the lectures.
We are not obliged to provide anything to anyone, but we certainly do not block access to students in any countries.
We are providing this free of charge to help as many as we can. We cannot control whether individual students in individual countries are able to access or not.
If you cannot access the lectures then the problem is most likely a problem with your computer and you should look for help on the support page – the link is below the lecture.
May 5, 2015 at 9:56 pm
good afternoon i recently sign up for open tuition and so far i am finding it very useful currently doing f1,f2,f3, hats off to all the persons behind this site #great_job 🙂 😉
March 19, 2015 at 5:25 pm
You said try the test and come back to the video…but where is the answer?
March 19, 2015 at 5:29 pm
Ooops – I shouldn’t have said come back to check the answer 🙂
If you look at the contents page of the Lecture Notes, you will see that answers to all of the tests are at the end of the notes.
April 21, 2015 at 10:26 am
Hello, Mr. John. unfortunately, at the end of the notes the answers are started only for Chapter 2. Moreover it says that to the Chapter 1 is “No Examples”.
Could you please provide us with a correct answer. Thank you a lot in advance.
April 21, 2015 at 10:32 am
There are no examples in Chapter 1 !!
If you look at the contents page you will see that answers to the tests start on page 195.
April 21, 2015 at 12:03 pm
Thank you alot!!!!!!! I found it.
January 8, 2015 at 4:51 pm
Hi there, I would like to know where the test answers are, for the first test question and the rest?
It says come back here to check your answer but I can’t see it.
January 8, 2015 at 5:50 pm
If you mean the tests at the end of each chapter, then the answers are at the back of the Course Notes.
If you mean the mock exam, then as the page before the exam starts explains, there is a choice at the end of the exam to compare your answers with the correct answers.
December 29, 2014 at 8:10 pm
I passed my CBE F3 today and i would like to thank you Mr John for the lectures and notes! I did not even know what was debit and credit when i started to study this paper 😀
I’ve now completed level 1 using only OT resources + Revision kits
December 29, 2014 at 8:23 pm
That is great – many congratulations 🙂
November 1, 2014 at 9:21 pm
Hi Mr John I am facing a problem with opening the downloaded files since they are in PDF format if u can kindly provide for me a solution for this. Thank you.
November 1, 2014 at 10:19 pm

March 12, 2015 at 7:45 pm
Hi shairose.i have the same problem i cant download them,did u manage to download them?
March 13, 2015 at 7:49 am
Mohsin – have you read the support page? (And I assume you are asking about downloading the notes, downloading the lectures is not possible – they can only be watched online)
March 13, 2015 at 8:00 am
Sir.am talking about the notes.when i download the notes it saves as web page that means when am not able to access internet i will not be able to access the notes as well. Yes i read the support page as well.
March 13, 2015 at 8:26 am
If you can’t see the download link – ask someone in your office for help.
March 13, 2015 at 9:05 am
Ok thank you.
October 21, 2014 at 1:50 am
I mean whole income statements and balance sheet.
October 21, 2014 at 4:48 am
Yes you do, preparing the whole statement can be asked in Section B of the exam.
October 21, 2014 at 1:49 am
Hello, For CBE FFA do i need to practice whole income statements?
September 30, 2014 at 6:53 pm
Hi sir I would like to ask which chapter is bad and doubtful debts?
September 30, 2014 at 7:41 pm
If you look at the contents page of the Course Notes that are to be used with the lectures, you will see a chapter called ‘Irrecoverable and Doubftul debts’.
(They have not been called bad debts for many years – they are now called irrecoverable debts.)
October 1, 2014 at 12:34 am
thank you sir 🙂
August 18, 2014 at 9:30 pm
I need some help regarding how should I study. Should I first finish watching all the lectures and read all the course notes and then turn to the exam kit or should I do the exam kit by the end of each chapter.
August 18, 2014 at 10:06 pm
It is up to you, but best probably is first to watch all the lectures (and try the tests at the end of each chapter). Then start practicing from the Exam Kit and refer back to the lectures and notes when you come across something you have forgotten.
(and, of course, ask in the F3 Ask the ACCA Tutor Forum if you have have any problems with any of the questions. I will try my best to help.)
August 13, 2014 at 8:35 am
how many days do i need pass the paper f3? i’ve done F1 and F3..and i hardly need to pass the f3 exam within one month..am ready to work hard..is that possible?
August 13, 2014 at 9:09 am
It is impossible to say how many days – it depends on how many hours a day you can study, and also as to how easy or hard you find the subject.
If you are prepared to work hard then one month should be enough.
Watch all our free lectures (along with our course notes), get hold of a Revision/Exam Kit from one of the approved publishers (so that you have lots of questions to practice), and do ask in the Ask the Tutor Forum if you need any help.
August 13, 2014 at 9:41 am
thank you sir..
August 13, 2014 at 10:19 am
You are very welcome 🙂
August 11, 2014 at 10:09 am
hello MR JOHN first of all i would like thank you soo much for these notes and videos they are very helpfull and helped me pass my FAB exam. I would like ask u if i just listen to your lectures and practice from the updated ACCA revision kit will it be enough for me to pass for my FFA exam?
August 11, 2014 at 10:14 am
Yes – it should certainly be enough.
Just make sure that you practice as many questions as you can (and that you practice under time pressure. In the exam there is enormous time pressure, and it is then that you make silly mistakes and misread things).
If you have any problems then do ask the in the Ask the ACCA Tutor Forum and I will do my best to help.
August 11, 2014 at 10:19 am
Thank you soo much 🙂
August 11, 2014 at 10:20 am
July 15, 2014 at 2:33 pm
Thanks John and all at Open Tuition! I managed to work my way through F1, F2 and F3 over the past 7 months and couldn’t have passed without your help!
July 16, 2014 at 6:34 am
Thank you, and many congratulations 🙂
June 29, 2014 at 1:48 pm

Hi Sir, how to convert a mark up of 12.5% into margin? If the markup is 20%, then I say it’s 1/4, so margin must be 1/(4+1), so margin is 1/5. How you do it for 12.5%? Thanks
May 18, 2014 at 7:06 pm
Well…….you got it wrong for 20% markup!!! The way you do it, then it would be 1/5, not 1/4. So the margin must be 1/(5+1) = 1/6.
If it was 12.5% mark-up, then you could say it is 1/8 and then do it your way.
Or you could say that if the cost was x then the markup would be X x 0.125X so the sales would be X(1.125). So the margin would be 0.125X/1.125X or 0.125/1.125
May 12, 2014 at 11:49 am
Hi, does anybody have a pdf version of BPP revision kit for ACCA f3 -exam 2014? Please share with me

I am studying financial reporting, where I am asked to revise the following topics: 1) conceptual framework – clueless on what this is about 2) consolidated statement of financial position 3) statement of cash flows – direct and indirect methods 4) presentation of financial statements 5) intangible assets
Is f3 the appropriate revision notes? Do you guys have lectures of conceptual frameworks? If so, could you please tell me where.
April 14, 2014 at 2:27 pm
Are these lectures along with course notes enough to pass FFA exam ?
April 14, 2014 at 4:50 pm
The lectures and Course Notes will provide you with enough knowledge to pass the exam well. However, what is also needed is lots of practice on exam-type questions, and for this you must get hold of a Revision/Exam Kit from one of the approved publishers. They contain lots of questions (and answers) to use for practice.
April 14, 2014 at 5:52 pm
Ok. So opentuition’s notes and approved publishers kit will it be a good combination ?
April 14, 2014 at 5:53 pm
April 14, 2014 at 5:55 pm
Thanks mate. 🙂
April 2, 2014 at 5:50 am
John.. I passed in F3.. All because of you! Thanks a lot! Wish I could make it up for u 🙂
April 2, 2014 at 6:21 am
Congratulations on passing -that is great. Thanks for your comments.
April 2, 2014 at 6:27 am
You are most welcome.. I’ve taken up paper F9 now and I’m following your F9 lectures at the moment. And really, they are quite extraordinary as well.. many thanks 🙂 🙂
March 20, 2014 at 1:52 pm
I would like to start with the very basics to start in accounting. which course do I begin with .
March 20, 2014 at 4:10 pm
Paper F3 is the best to start with 🙂
March 20, 2014 at 10:42 am
Please provide answers for the test questions
March 20, 2014 at 10:55 am
The answers are in the Course Notes. Look at the contents page.
March 1, 2014 at 2:59 pm
Please,how do I download the lecture videos?
March 1, 2014 at 3:55 pm
Lectures can only be watched online – they are not downloadable. It is the only way that we can keep this site free of charge.
February 12, 2014 at 3:13 pm
what is the different between f3 and ffa.
February 12, 2014 at 4:10 pm
There is no difference – they are the same exam!
February 12, 2014 at 9:02 am
where is a questions to practice? kindly send me a link 🙂
February 12, 2014 at 9:16 am
There are test questions at the end of each chapter of the Course Notes. For more questions you need to get a Revision / Exam Kit from one of the approved publishers.
January 30, 2014 at 6:46 pm
Hey Mr. John. I would like to ask you which study text are you using to give the lectures, BPP, GTG or Kaplan? And also please suggest which one is the best to refer to. I’m using the BPP currently.
Thank you! 🙂
January 30, 2014 at 7:32 pm
My lectures do not use a study text! They use the OpenTuition course notes.
You do not really need a Study Text. What you do need is a Revision / Exam Kit in order to practice as many questions as possible. All of the kits from approved publishers are good.
January 23, 2014 at 9:23 am
Sir John Moffat..I just want to thank you. I passed my cbe exam today with your help!! Really thank you for the online lectures!!:)
January 23, 2014 at 9:29 am
That’s great – congratulations 🙂

I have a query…I actually started my ACCA last year on january…i still need to sit for two papers ..i wanted to know if there is a need for me to pay subscription fees even though i will not continue with the ACCA course?That is do i have to pay the subscription fees just to sit for the exams of my remaining two papers?
January 8, 2014 at 5:02 am
To take exams, you have to be register with the ACCA, and so you have to pay the ACCA subscription each year.
December 16, 2013 at 2:57 pm
I wished to know if F3 syllabus gonna change next year?I had in fact taken my F3 course during the start of the year and I recently went for F3 exam and was unfortunately unsuccessful..I don’t think that I’m ready right now for the exam..so i wanted to sit for the exam next year..during the first weeks of January..That’s why i wanted to know if the syllabus is going to change?
December 16, 2013 at 5:12 pm
Please find the attached updated link for the syllabus…
And you must focus on the basic Accounting concepts as this will remain same and keep focusing on practising again n again…
December 19, 2013 at 8:35 am
Thanks a lot for the link..
December 20, 2013 at 4:37 am
please find the below mention link for the syllbus till August 2015…
December 27, 2013 at 2:06 pm
Many thanks again…
December 13, 2013 at 3:37 pm
Hello John, thank you very much for this site and your lectures. I was able to pass F2 and F3 easily via CBEs within one month.
Now I am thinking to go for F5 in June 2014 cycle.
But I had another question: What happens in case I dont want to take any exam in 2014 for example. What will happen if I dont pay the yearly fee? I didnt think about this option but would be fine to know as I did not find it on Accaglobal website.
December 13, 2013 at 3:46 pm
Congratulations on passing F2 and F3. I am afraid that you do need to pay the yearly fee to remain registered with the ACCA, even if you do not take any exams in that year 🙁
August 4, 2015 at 1:07 am
You only studied one month for each (or both subject)? How many hours per day study did you do?
November 29, 2013 at 4:59 pm
September 28, 2013 at 10:49 pm
Does the separate legal entity concept only applied to limited company?
September 29, 2013 at 7:03 am
That is not a concept!
The concept is ‘the separate entity concept’, and that does apply to all businesses – we treat the business as separate from the owner.
Limited companies are separate in law (separate LEGAL entities) but sole traders are not separate in law.
December 13, 2013 at 10:47 pm
Just want to say thank you for this site and your free lectures. They were helpful in passing my F3 exam
September 17, 2013 at 1:34 pm

January 13, 2014 at 10:58 am
plsss folks i want to take the f8 auditing paper,but i have not taken the f4 law paper,is this gonna give me some problems?are these two papers connected in any way?
January 13, 2014 at 11:33 am
kofishadrack, there’s no problem taking F8 before F4 – they are only tangentially related
July 21, 2013 at 9:44 am
Hi i started a mock exam but unfortunately went out of time and could not finish the paper, i wanted to take the paper anagin but i am getting mssage as “Time limit exceeded! We cannot accept your results.” How to acess paper again please help.
July 15, 2013 at 6:47 pm
Hey Open tution I have one question, can someone pass F1, F2, F3 by only reading this course notes and viewing those lectures and if yes where can I download those vedios ??
July 15, 2013 at 8:56 pm
You can certainly pass, although you should get hold of an exam/revision kit from one of the publishers and practice lots of questions.
The videos are not downloadable – it is the only way that we can keep this site free of charge.
Muhammad Sarosh says
July 20, 2013 at 12:00 pm
There is a lot of text missing from F3 notes, there is no details just the headlines, please check it.
July 20, 2013 at 12:59 pm
That is deliberate because they are lecture notes. They are to be used with the lectures and during the lectures we expand on the headings. The course notes are not meant to replace study texts.
July 31, 2013 at 10:54 am
is net profit, profit before tax
July 31, 2013 at 11:04 am
For a sole trader, tax is not relevant (because the business itself does not pay tax – the owner pays it).
For a limited company there is more than one way of defining net profit, however we normally mean net operating profit which is the profit before loan interest and before tax.
July 15, 2013 at 3:03 pm
Hi everybody, i have studied science subjects, so i don’t have any knowledge in accounting. Do you think that i should studies MA1, FA1, MA2, FA2 first then start with FAB, FMA and FFA? Or the lectures and notes here(for level 1) are enough to understand the basic concept as well?
July 15, 2013 at 3:05 pm
You really should not need to study the other papers first – the lectures and notes here should be sufficient.
July 16, 2013 at 5:55 pm
Thank u Sir, so i’m going to start my studies with F1, F2 and F3 here then!
May 24, 2013 at 6:40 pm
This lecture says f3 (int) is this correct for exams in the uk?
May 25, 2013 at 6:15 am
Yes it is correct for the UK. (There used be a separate UK paper, but not any more)
July 10, 2013 at 8:21 am
I’m from kenya are this notes good enough
July 10, 2013 at 9:18 am
Yes – they are fine for everywhere (it is the same exam now throughout the world 🙂 )
May 16, 2013 at 3:43 pm
are these video lectures and course notes enough to pass without the textbooks?
May 16, 2013 at 3:52 pm
You need revision kit to practice as many past ACCA questions as possible, study text us really optional – depending how you understand the topics from notes/lectures..
May 16, 2013 at 3:42 pm
New to Acca and to this wonderful site,great job keep it up 😀
May 13, 2013 at 3:37 am
Thanks OT.. passed my F3 paper with this site, God bless 🙂 hope i can pass other paper as well 😀

January 29, 2013 at 8:31 am
There is enough here to pass, but you must practice lots of questions. At the very least all the past exam questions but preferably get a revision/exam kit as well.
January 11, 2013 at 5:03 am
Are these lectures and the ones on youtube the same? Or are the youtube ones outdated? Because mobile devices can’t access opentuition.com video thank you
January 11, 2013 at 7:18 am
opentuition.com video lectures play fine on mobile phones/tablets. (if using android – install flash or MP4 player)
February 26, 2013 at 12:16 pm

August 2, 2011 at 7:59 am
You can start now Only partnership chapter will be removed from the notes, and some extra chapters added for December
August 1, 2011 at 4:58 pm
hello friends is it true that after the completion of f1-f3, acca issues diploma certificate based on demand?
July 26, 2011 at 8:56 pm
CBE – computer based exam: you do the exam at a computer paper based exam: you do the exam on paper
July 24, 2011 at 5:33 am
Can someone tell me the difference between the cbe and the paper base exam.

why dont opentution provides CAT guides
March 30, 2011 at 7:55 pm
I just hate to hear bpp. I wonder why the authors keep feeding us with all these irrelevant stuff. The best ACCA book I have ever come across is Emile Woolfs. I salute the authors.
March 14, 2011 at 10:53 am
its really helpful lecture. really appriciative 🙂 thanks opentution … let me see ahead on chapter 2 and so on 🙂
March 14, 2011 at 7:31 am
THanks alot Opentuition, it really helped me alot, and i am very thankful from Opentuition for providing this opportunity.
February 20, 2011 at 2:45 am
The BPP book has lot more topics in it… So is it simply useless to study from the examination point of view…
February 20, 2011 at 9:33 am
no itz not but bbp is in more detail , itz like u study from here ull be on the sufrace of the water but if u study from bpp ull reach the bottom of the that water. BUT some thingz in BPP are quite irrelevant
February 13, 2011 at 9:21 am
Opentuition is very concise and useful. It helps me to learn as quickly as possible. Personally I think, better than BPP’s book.
February 8, 2011 at 6:17 am
Very good. Thank you
Uzair Tareen says
February 4, 2011 at 9:11 pm
Can you watch these videos on iPad by any chance or do I need to get a laptop.
February 5, 2011 at 12:00 am
@Uzair I am afraid ipad does not support flash, and, the site does not support ipad at the moment 🙁
February 2, 2011 at 4:23 am
