I am currently considering my last acca exam.
The aaa pass rate looks very disappointing.
Could you advise if the aaa paper would be any easier for me if I’m a practicing auditors with 7 years of experience.
Maybe there is a separate statistics of candidates with audit background which I could not find?
Would really appreciate your comments
Welcome to my forum!
All the option pass rates are “very disappointing” – I am sure that one of the reasons for that is that students don’t have “real options” when it comes to choosing their options – e.g. if they did a variant TX exam that doesn’t have an ATX equivalent, that pretty much rules out ATX. Or if they work for a particular accountancy firm they may be required to do AAA and APM.
There are no stats other than the global pass rates, but this article suggest that you should be more comfortable with AAA with practical experience
The only danger is to be “too comfortable” – I have had many a resit who didn’t give AAA sufficient attention because they thought they could rely on their practical experience. It doesn’t work like that – practical experience should help to comprehend the subject matter, but it’s no substitute for question practice.
