Passed with 95%
couldn’t believe it when i saw the result.
January 29, 2020 at 6:20 am #560124
Well! That’s given everyone else a target to aim for!
I have no words other than “very well done – what a result!”
Let’s hope that you can replicate this in all your exams

Hi, what was your study method please? Did you go to formal classes with a lecturer or did you study independent with online tuition help? Just about to start and not sure what study method to choose. Thanks.

Personally I attended 3 residential course (6 weeks, 8 weeks and 8 weeks) for my 14 exams – 4 exams followed by 2 lots of 5 exams
If you read through posts on this site there seems to be a number of students that claim success from simply relying on our material together with their own hard work
Does that help you at all?
March 6, 2020 at 1:52 pm #564561
I Self-studied for months with sleepless nights and constant practice and I failed today with 47%. It is my first ACCA Exam F4.
March 6, 2020 at 3:05 pm #564582
Maybe try to get more sleep?
Watch the free videos at least one (more) time, read the free course notes (once each week (2 hours start to finish)), then back in to practicing questions from the revision kit
Don’t, I repeat ‘Do not’ push yourself into a situation of sleepless nights
Work in the evening, sure. But give your mind and body ample opportunity to close down before you go to bed
I don’t remember you ever having posted any questions on the Ask ACCA Tutor forum where you have come across something that you didn’t understand … and, clearly there are areas that you didn’t fully understand
Try following the above advice but, this time, when you hit a brick wall in your understanding, post your question
Post on the Ask ACCA Tutor forum – that way I shall certainly see it and I shall reply
March 6, 2020 at 5:07 pm #564636
Thank you very much Mike. I have made notes from all ur lectures in my book. Sometimes writing word for word which helps me remember.
I will follow these and try again. Please what time period will you recommend I do the resit please?
March 6, 2020 at 9:08 pm #564699
Leslie, you’re very welcome
Are you under time pressure from work? Or peer pressure? Do you have much in the way of ‘outside’distractions? Sport? Ancient relatives that need frequent / constant care and attention? Girl friends / boy friends making demands on your time? Young children demanding your attention?
If your life is pretty much free from this type of distraction, and given that you went into that exam with the fond expectation of passing, it seems to me that you are a mere 2 questions from nailing it at this second attempt
You scored 47% in your first attempt? That’s a question of two more correct / two fewer incorrect answers and you’ve passed
It’s not really any different than the Brexit referendum except that the 52 / 48 split was not reversible according to Trump’s puppet whereas your mastery of law has the opportunity to demonstrate previously undreamt of depths of understanding
Post again when you hit a problem … but post in only one of the forums!
March 6, 2020 at 9:59 pm #564709
SIR Mike this is actually my first ACCA F4 exam I have sat. Yes I have family and a daughter. Sports is never my thing. Only 2 questions to pass OMG. Thanks very much. Any idea in when to sit again? Do I wait a while or resit ASAP
March 7, 2020 at 8:36 am #564747
Only you can answer that! Why not try this … in any 2 hour session of your choice, see what percentage you can score in any (and all!) specimen exam (s) that you can get you hands on
When you have, say, 3 consecutive scores in excess of, say, 65% then that’s probably the time to be thinking seriously about a further attempt at the real thing
Between making that decision (and entering for the exam) and the date of your next attempt, keep going with your 2 hour regime
And keep posting your questions on the Ask ACCA Tutor forum!
March 15, 2020 at 11:50 am #565277jesscyParticipant
Passed this exam yesterday. Only spent around a week (this is bad, please do spend more time on it) to revise + Mike’s video + did questions online.
Thank you Mike x
March 15, 2020 at 3:33 pm #565285
Well! What can I say? Very well done / don’t leave yourself only a week for future exams!
That’s reassuring to know that the lectures are useful!
All the very best in your future studies … but, seriously, don’t leave yourself with just one week for preparation
April 17, 2020 at 7:47 am #568500muwawuParticipant
I passed my exam thank u very much opentuition…. I can’t be more greatful my advice to anyone who is yet to do this exam is just read the free lecture notes and videos…….then ur chances are very high that ull nail it
April 17, 2020 at 9:03 pm #568633
Well done Muwawu 🙂
Onwards and upwards

This is either a comment about Muwawu’s exam success or a comment about the lectures and OpenTuition generally
I’m going to believe it’s not about Muwawu’s performance so thank you for your endorsement
May 31, 2020 at 7:59 pm #572459anilcastelinoParticipant
Thank you very much for your excellent Videos and Notes ; I could pass the LW(GLO) today with 64% and really happy about that ; since it came all from self study initiative
June 1, 2020 at 8:37 am #572475
Very many congratulations Anil
Now replicate that across the rest of the exams!
June 1, 2020 at 9:29 am #572481thuyngo94Participant
Thank you Mike! Your videos and your help in answering my inquiries were great help. I got 75%.
June 1, 2020 at 1:17 pm #572507
Excellent result Thuy, well done
Keep that up and you’ll soon be able to call yourself ACCA
June 4, 2020 at 5:37 am #572820mmluqmanParticipant
Hello Mike. Hope all good at your side.
Reading comments from students in this forum gives me tremendous encouragement for self study. I’m resuming my studies, after some years. I now have family, two children. But I think with this lockdown, I have time to put effort.
I shall rely solely on your notes and lectures. Any advice, Mike?
June 4, 2020 at 5:04 pm #572869
If you’re locked down with your two children, why not let them join you in studying for ACCA?
It’s never too early to start!
Advice? Read the posts on this thread and then practice, practice, practice from a revision kit
And, when you hit a problem that you can’t resolve, post again on the Ask ACCA Tutor page
June 26, 2020 at 4:25 pm #574748katecgreenParticipant
I took the LW Remote exam from home. I did pass but felt I probably should have passed with a lot more confidence.
It was a lot more challenging than expected, nothing like the mocks and covered a small section of syllabus. Ive spoken to a large group who felt the same. I don’t know if thats because it was the remote exam
June 26, 2020 at 6:10 pm #574756
I’m not sure what I can say to comment on your post, Kate – do you have anything to say to me that I could maybe comment on? Are the notes and lectures not detailed enough? Were there any questions that you had before the exam where you decided not to ask them on the Ask ACCA Tutor forum?
Did you spend endless hours in a revision kit? And still felt that you were under-prepared?
Please let me know on the Ask ACCA Tutor forum and I shall get back to you
July 10, 2020 at 5:42 pm #576522vk1325Participant
Thanks for all your lectures. Managed to pass with 73% using your lectures, notes and the BPP revision kit.
Thanks once again.
July 11, 2020 at 8:17 am #576538
Well done Vijay and thanks for letting me know
Onwards and upwards 🙂
July 15, 2020 at 7:43 pm #576931hanafy08Participant
Congrats Vijay! Did you do the remote exam? If yes, how was your experience?
July 18, 2020 at 9:22 pm #577339mmluqmanParticipant
Mike. You are amazing. Today I passed my F4 CBE with 79% marks. A lot is due to your lectures and notes, I must say.
I’ve only studied from your lectures and then revision. Practice, Practice, Practice, just as you said Mike.
It took me 30 days to cover the syllabus through your lectures. 15 days revision. Total 45 days.
Thank you Mike once again.
July 19, 2020 at 4:39 am #577344
Great news Muhammad, well done
Here’s hoping that you can replicate this performance in the next exams
Again, well done
July 24, 2020 at 1:47 pm #577831saksheeParticipant
Thank you Mike, I passed the LW(Glo) Exam a week ago with 56%…self-studied for only one week (Although it’s definitely not recommended) using only the Opentuition notes, BPP Passcards and Revision Kit.
Some advices I can give from my personal experience:
Firstly, is to sleep well. Get atleast a good 6 hour sleep prior to the exam day. I slept for only 2 hours that night due to stress and believe me I know I could have done much better that day.
Secondly, practice all questions in the Revision Kit. I didn’t use any study text nor learnt all notes by heart. The key to passing the exam is knowing how to tackle the questions as the latter can be very tricky. (A small word can change the whole meaning of the question, thus the answer as well).
Third and lastly, attempt a mock exam one or two days before your exams. It might seem demotivating if ever you fail it (Believe me I failed with 48%) but atleast you would get an idea about where you’re standing and which chapters you’re having difficulties.
July 24, 2020 at 3:36 pm #577841
Well done Sakshee, and I agree totally with your three recommendations … although I believe that even 6 hours sleep is not enough – my recommendation would be to aim for at least 8 hours
As for your preparation time of just one week … what can I say? I certainly would not join you with that if you were recommending it. Of course, a lot depends on other elements of one’s life that could be distractors. If there’s nothing to get in the way of studying, then maybe one week is sufficient to squeeze past this exam but anyone with ambitions higher then mid-fifties would need to spend rather longer
Nevertheless, well done indeed. On now to the next level 🙂
July 29, 2020 at 12:04 am #578520abdulqayoomfarookParticipant
Failed with 49% just some time before.
Would it be recommended to get the administrative review done ???
If not any advice for the re-examination.
July 29, 2020 at 6:01 am #578530
Absolutely not! In all my years of teaching I have NEVER heard of a student that had their exam result changed. NEVER
Advice? Open that Revision kit and start going through the questions again and then, when you’ve finished all the questions, do them all again
I don’t remember you ever posting any questions on the Ask ACCA Tutor forum but it’s clear that you didn’t understand everything that you studied … so where were your questions?
We are here to help you but we can’t do that unless you tell us that you need help!

Amazing Law Lectures.

August 29, 2020 at 4:46 pm #582661kilaParticipant
Trust you are doing ok
Wanted to say thank you
Passed my exams today
Lectures were superb though I didn’t go via all. If I did would have done better
September 12, 2020 at 7:44 am #585251NABHIParticipant
Your videos were really helpful for some topics I did not get an understanding of and also for those that were just too boring to be read from the book only. Just passed it yesterday. Thank you!!
September 12, 2020 at 2:11 pm #585317FarheenuParticipant
I just passed my LW exam 62%. Just want to say a huge thanks to Mike and Open tuition to provide with all the support and free resources.
