ACCA F7 – Nature of the paper
ACCA F7 Paper – Financial Reporting – is a step up from the double entry
bookkeeping learned at F3 and is a link leading to P2 advanced Corporate
Reporting. It extends the appreciation of the preparation of consolidated
financial statements and examines a student’s ability to prepare and / or
interpret a business’ performance from a set of financial statements.
Structure of the ACCA F7 paper
The exam is a three-hour paper, with all questions being compulsory, and with 15 minutes reading time.
There will be two sections to the exam:
Section A will comprise 20 multiple choice questions of 2 marks each.
Section B will comprise one 30 mark questions and two 15 mark questions.
(The 30 mark question will examine the preparation of financial statements for either a single entity or a group. The section A question and the other questions in Section B can cover any areas of the syllabus.)

Hi sir. Is it possible that cash flow will come up in section c for june 2018 paper based exam?
It’s perfectly possible
The exam format above is incorrect.
Now there are 3 sections:
A- 15 multiple choice questions
B- 3 multi task questions
C- 2 structured questions
please visit the ACCA wesite for confirmation.
You’re right of course – in the very near future the relevant page is to be updated along with the lectures, but thanks for your input
Hi, if you don’t show workings for consolidated profit or loss and the answe is correct will you still get marks?
Yes, but why wouldn’t you show the workings? Goodwill (and therefore the calculated figure as a percentage impairment through profit or loss) could be worth up to 5 marks
If you make a single mistake in the calculation of that goodwill to be impaired that’s 5 marks down the drain
If you show your workings and there’s just that one mistake in the calculation, you’re still scoring 4 out of the 5 available
It was the statement of profit or loss. I wrote all workings in pencil but i heard the pencil won’t scan

Where can I find “worked examples of all the questions 1, 2 and 3 on this website”
Home, ACCA, F7, scroll down to “ACCA Revision lectures” and click on that.
This post should have been on the “Ask the Tutor” page!
Examiners need to be lenient with students who fail with mark 49
my lecturer said those around 49 marks, examiner will check upon their theory questions.. just write even simple words.. they want to see it rather than just do the calculation part..
hello i had listen that no of attempts is incresed in a year is it true then from what period.
I’m not sure I fully understand your post (“hello i had listen that no of attempts is incresed in a year is it true then from what period.”) but this is what I think you meant ….. “Hello, I heard that the number of sittings per year for exams is to be increased. Is it true? If so, then what date does this proposed change take effect?”
Am I correct? Is that what you meant to ask? If so, the ACCA is introducing change slowly. F4 is to be made available as a CBE in the near future and is certainly to be made 70% multi-choice based with effect from December 2014 The other F level exams will convert during 2015
With reference to “more sittings per year” yes, there appears to be a move towards 3 sittings per year but, not to worry, by then you will have already qualified!
Hi Mike ,
I just came across you post and would like you to confirm if the changes mentioned regarding the introduction of more sitting this year have been introduced ).

Hi, yes, with effect from September this year some (but not all) centers will have an extra session in this September and then, with effect from 2016 all centers around the world will have 4 sittings each year.
There’s a lot of detail in this in order to be able to explain it fully. Have you read the information on the ACCA’s own website?

Hi when will the F7 Financial Reporting – UK variant course notes be available for the December 2012 sitting.
I see that there are only the international ones available at present.
@Manx Sapphire, Hi – it’s unlikely that we’ll be doing UK variant notes – the UK is eventually converging with International and applying international standards so there’s little point in preparing UK notes when you’re getting closer and closer to complete convergence!
