Hello Kim, hope you’re in good health, I will be giving SBR this attempt and for the next attempt I’m stuck in a dilemma, there are certain reasons why I prefer giving AAA in the march attempt rather than the Dec one, I plan to give ATX in dec and then AAA in march, in your opinion will this put me at a disadvantageous position in the context of not remembering the standards to the details that I have learned in SBR as the standards are crucial for AAA and its easy to forget the details in six months, I’m dreading this decision, any guidance from you will be appreciated.
Welcome to my AAA forum! Delighted to see you will be sitting AAA.
Short answer – it will be fine.
It is certainly preferable to plan to sit ATX for the first time in Dec rather than March – if you planned for March and then had to defer/resit, it would be “all change” with new rates and allowances and a new Finance Act for the June.
And it won’t be 6 months … you can start looking at AAA after 6 December – so that’s only 3 months away 🙂 You really don’t need too much SBR in the way of “details” of any one standard but rather a solid understanding of how a broad range of transactions, events and balances are accounted for and reported (sufficient to be able to audit them).
(By the way, was your 86% in March a prize winning score? If not, it must have been very close! https://studentaccountant.accaglobal.com/2022/08/30/acca-news-jun22-prizewinners/content.html)
As always, thank you for your concise, relevant, and overall helpful response. And regarding AA, I was able to score a nationwide distinction in my country in march at 87% (i think i mistakenly mentioned 86% in my earlier post) but wasn’t able to score a global one, looking forward to acing AAA too with hard work and your guidance. 🙂
