THANK YOU SO MUCH KEN!October 15, 2019 at 1:52 am
to all of you who did not pass:
don’t feel bad. don’t lose confidence. remember you got some marks. you just need a few more to pass. you just need to figure out where you are falling short. concentrate on passing, not failing.
did you use the support materials on the ACCA website (technical articles). they are really good in terms of helping you pass.
e.g. did you read the questions properly? theres an ACCA article that lists question words and exactly what they mean (e.g. evaluate, assess, describe).
do you apply the answer to the specific company in the scenario (not just respond in general terms?).October 15, 2019 at 6:39 am
Definitely you should go for AR as this will give you confidence where you’re good at and where you need to practice. It helped me a lot and I passed APM in September 2019.October 15, 2019 at 9:57 am
Passed my last exam. I had no idea if I did well or not in this exam. Very happy that I’ve passed.October 15, 2019 at 5:33 pm
9th attempt and 45%, 46%, 48%, 47% and 45% again this time.
You don’t listen to advice.i even got 49 in this paper and 48 and 47 but I chatting taxation and now am a memberOctober 15, 2019 at 6:32 pm
Really puzzled with this exam. I thought I had passed APM smoothly and failed AFM. In reality, passed both with a 50 mark. I finished my APM comfortably and ahead of time, so I guess I must be missing something fundamental about how the exam needed to be approached – don’t complain about passing though.October 15, 2019 at 10:25 pm
9th attempt and 45%, 46%, 48%, 47% and 45% again this time.
I was in similar situation and had got AR done last time and passed this time. My advice to Anybody’s got stuck in 40s should go for AR as you get understanding that where you’re going wrong and where you need a little push.October 16, 2019 at 5:25 am
What is AR?October 16, 2019 at 7:00 am
What is AR?
Administrative Review by ACCA.October 16, 2019 at 7:23 am
For strategic professional stage the Administrative review (AR) will only indicate whether you have passed in a question or not and no additional information. Am I correct?October 16, 2019 at 9:44 am

You’re right but think about if the outcome of AR reveals you have passed Q1 and failed Q2 and Q3 then your strategy to revise will completely change whereas if you have got 47 and don’t know which question you passed and which one you failed, you would start revision from scratch and might repeat the same mistake.
Thanks to few participants on this portal who post questions straight after exam which will help a lot in analysing yourself in the light of AR.
This worked for me and many might not agree with but what I said above carry some weight.October 16, 2019 at 4:09 pm
Fail 47% 2nd attempt – I think for me it was exam technique becuz I ran out of time and left 18 points on the table.
Question – did you for Q1 plan out your answer before you started to write? how much time should such planning take, not considering the reading time for Q1October 17, 2019 at 1:19 am
i always plan for every question.
i put aside 15 minutes at that start for reading time and in that time i also plan by skimming the questions first and then the text for each question and making notes on the question paper- underlining main points in the text, circling things etc
i look at the marks for each question and multiply them by 1.8 to get the number of minutes I should devote to the question. then I reread the actual question itself THREE or even FOUR times to make sure i have understood EXACTLY what it does (and does not) want. I will underline the key words in the question.
Then I look at the number of marks again. e.g. 10 marks means 10 separate points. so I quickly think out and jot down 10 things (e.g. as bullet points in on the question paper), again referring specifically to the company in the scenario and referring each point back to the question (to double check relevancy).
if you become short of time, you can jot the bullet points down on the answer booklet too. that might get you some marks.October 17, 2019 at 6:14 am
If you spend the reading time of 15 minutes to read all 3 questions I think it is only after 1.30 hours time to you can attempt the second question. Therefore I think it is advisable to spend the entire 15 minutes planning time to read the first question and trying to finish it with the next 1.30 hours. For the second and third questions balance 1.30 hours can be utilized. There is no choice among the questions and therefore you need not spend your time on any questions which you are not supposed to answer.October 17, 2019 at 6:28 am
Can anybody remember the last part of APM – September 2019. I can remember there is something about NPV and standard deviation. How should we apply the standard deviation figure to this particular question. Anybody knows about any technical article relating to this area of APM.October 17, 2019 at 6:08 pm
hello can you please tell me how to get AR .October 18, 2019 at 6:00 am
You log on to Myacca and under the exam status and results you will find the request for Administrative Service. (AR)October 25, 2019 at 5:42 am
