Passed with 66%. First timer. Exam felt okay in difficulty but there was some time pressure.January 15, 2018 at 1:54 pm
I would say make time to study. I am not parent but i work and do alot of over time. I stated studying Mid – Sept for the Dec Exam. I made sure every day i gave 2 hours to studying on weekend lil more early in morning . I first did notes and the watch lecture for further clarity. When was done did all exam papers i could find really on ACCA website for P2 . The older ones first and make sure all change standards did not do as answer would have changed. I only used open tuition material and past papers and i am more than happy as i got 58% .January 15, 2018 at 1:56 pm
50%, that’s all I needed.
God is great, first attempt. Was so sure I failedJanuary 15, 2018 at 3:41 pm
Thank you toobeelee. Well done to you as well.January 15, 2018 at 4:10 pm
I passed first time and was also convinced that I failed.
I used the BPP question bank which I thought was excellent. I did every single consolidated question and 2 questions on each standard.
What I think really really helped with the standards was opentuition. My commute to work is around 1 hour each way, so instead of listening to music I would stream the IAS/IFRS standards lectures just to soak up as much information as possible – did this for around 2 months straight.
I would also recommend that you do all the lecture examples on the OT notes for the standards. They are exam standard and really really helped. I can’t recommend them enough. I went through all of them around 3 times and spent the last day doing every single lecture question.
One other thing to not confuse your self with the consolidated questions/ techniques. If you’re using BPP learn the BPP technique, or if your’re using OT learn the OT technique or Kaplan etc. and don’t cross different provider Q & A’s because you could end up confusing your self.January 15, 2018 at 4:21 pm
63% first attempt. Can’t believe that.
I just completed section A & one 25-mark qs of section B.
Congrats to all who pass. For those who have not passed P2, keep going.January 15, 2018 at 6:09 pm
Thank you ofenomeno99, that’s fantastic tip/help also.January 15, 2018 at 9:49 pm
Finally no more exams. Passed my last paper after 7 attempts with 50 marks. Talk about a miracle.
After so many attempts I felt there was nothing else to study I knew pretty much all the past questions.
But what was missing….. exam technique and a positive mindset. I prepared in under 5 days . Had I practiced better techniques and put in more time I may have done better.
So thankful.January 16, 2018 at 12:02 am
@sindypanda congrats on passing.
Unbelievably i passed too with 57%. I still cant believe it im finally an ACCA AffiliateJanuary 16, 2018 at 12:32 am
Passed with 54% first attempt. Very surprised as I was 50/50 pass/fail!! On to P7 nowJanuary 16, 2018 at 1:56 am
I promised myself to post a comment here if I passed this time round. So I finally did. Im not the brightest student, but I hope this helps those who think they could not make it for P2. You def CAN.
Passed third attempt @ 58% with 2 weeks to study. I did not really focus the last two attempts and ignored the important exam techniques etc (time management is super important guys – READ before you dive into all the questions).
Make full use of the 15 minutes reading time. Pick your questions, write some notes here and there. Because after an hour or so of doing Q1, you will forget all stuff you wanted to write in the first place (happened to me). Please DONT do this. Choose all the questions you want to answer during the 15 minutes reading time. So vital to passing your exam.
BUT really, hats off to Chris. I managed to do this thanks to his lecturers. Chris’ lecturers literally saved my life as I have a full-time job and managed to squeeze time to study at night and during the weekend. I would repeat the lecturers again and again. Thank you so Much Chris if you are reading this.
Lesson i learnt from previous attempts:
i. Do not try to rot learn all the accounting standards, you have to understand the principles behind each standard.
ii. Do not question/standard-pick, learn ALL the standards. At least the basics.
iii. I didn’t have enough time to do question practices ( i never complete a whole set of questions before lol), so I picked to practice questions which im weaker at ie Financial instruments, tax etc over and over again.
iv. Use the technical articles.
v. Dont bother buying expensive textbooks (you could but you can def pass w opentuition, accowtancy resources, any resources online and practice past exam questions.
v. Watch Chris’ Lecturers (helped me so much, it will def help you)
Hope this helps. Just helping out those who failed – resitting/ taking P2 exam in the future. 50% is all we need guys! One more paper to go. Do not give up guys! God bless.January 16, 2018 at 7:51 am

@sindypanda Thank you Sindy im still on cloud 9 😀 Applied for my membership yesterday and it got approved having completed my PER and ethcis too.
From feeling down and out and almost giving up on ACCA a couple of months ago because i would have lost my P exams due to the 7 year rule if i didnt pass P2 at this sitting…to becoming a full member how things can change in a flash…
Moral is to never give up even when it all seems so bleak.
I sat advanced audit and the performance options but that was way way back in 2011. Good luck with whichever you choose im sure you will be on that prestigious ACCA members list with me soon 😉January 27, 2018 at 10:43 am
pls anybody, is there any way one can download ACCA video lecture on opentuition.com?
