HI guys, I am looking into starting on the foundation level and have discovered that on the third stage within the foundation level is very similar to the applied knowledge stage.
Am I correct in believing both stages overlap/are the same as I am looking into gaining additional resources and wouldn’t want to practice from the wrong source.
They are the same exam!
As you will see from our main FIA page, our free Paper FA lectures are for both FA and FIA.
You also need to buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA Approved Publishers. It is full of exam standard questions for practice after you have finished studying.
You will see that the Revision Kits are marked as being for both FIA and FA.
(Similarly FIA papers FBT and FMA are the same exams as the ACCA papers BT and MA)

Amazing – Blimey that is such a relief. I know its such a silly niggling question but I didn’t want to assume that both were of the same syllabus. That has made my Monday evening. Being able to seek your guidance is fantastic thank you for doing so as it can be quite lonely when self-studying without being able to seek help thank you for such a resource John. Absolute hero 🙂
With regards to the exam kits, e.g. BPP does it mirror what you can get within the exam or is it a case of it being being similar as I’m unsure how it works with the ACCA.
The ACCA does not publish past exams for Paper FA/FFA
The BPP Revision Kit contains exam type questions of a similar difficulty to those in the real exam, and is approved by the ACCA. That does not mean that the same questions will be asked in the exam (every exam is different because the questions are selected at random by the computer from a large bank of questions).
