And the Journey is finally over. All thanks to GodApril 16, 2018 at 4:25 pm

Alhamduliliah passed by 52 % first attempt.two to go…April 17, 2018 at 12:11 am
Praise God that i passed with 55%. But i had the same results as you. Felt very discouraged.But i had too put those fails behind and move ahead.
You shall have success.April 17, 2018 at 10:49 am
Pass with 55%. Time management is very important. Last time, I left questions about 30 marks. Affiliate now. 🙂 For those who still work on the exam, keep going, be strong, never give up. Good luck.April 17, 2018 at 12:48 pm
I failed with a 45, absolutely gutted as I was getting over 70 in some of the mocks.
I don’t know if anybody on here could help me with a couple of things; (if anybody could help I’d really appreciated)
1. In all the mocks I was doing the 35 mark question at the start was usually split into 3 parts such as 20, 10 and 5. However in the exam it was just one big 35 so I struggled to allocate the time to each part.
I think this may be why I failed, does anyone know why ACCA did this or was it due to me doing a different variant on the mocks?
2. I was studying with BPP prior to my March sitting but they’ve now taken away all my online materials.
The biggest part of P7 study for me was getting my written questions marked/assessed but now I won’t have this option due to BPP disowning me (lol!) Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get my papers marked by a learning provider as a one off service?April 17, 2018 at 1:14 pm
Did this exam in September 2017 got 74%
Think trick is to think like an auditor and anything that looks or feels wrong in the scenario is wrong…thinking outside the box works with this paperApril 17, 2018 at 1:16 pm
UK Version is all lumped together while other variants are split out.
Advantage you can write anything to get the marks and not limited to specific sub questions.
Disadvantages there no structure so you cant allocate time to each part.April 17, 2018 at 4:07 pm
Don’t feel discouraged. I failed my P& in December 17. Like you, I only scored 45. I spent too much time on the first question (2 hours to be exact). But sat for my resit in March 18 and I scored 56 for my 2nd attempt.
Forget BPP materials. You can self-study using the materials provided by ACCA. Keep practicing using the past exam papers. Practice doing the past papers under the constraint of time (3 hours 15 minutes). Time yourself. Be extremely disciplined about it. Trust me, it is more important to complete each and every question in the exam than to get the “right” answer for every question.
After you are done, compare your answers to the examiner’s. Don’t feel too discouraged if they are too dissimilar because the examiner’s answer is the “perfect answer”. However, by making such comparison, you can evaluate your understanding of the audit concepts.
Know your quality control issues. Make sure you have the ethical/independence issues wrapped around your fingertip. Practice areas relating to non-assurance (eg. PFI, due diligence, performance audit). Most importantly, you need to know your accounting standards (IFRS) from A-Z.
Look out for technical articles from ACCA. If there’s a new one before an exam sitting, it could be examinable on that sitting.
Remember not to give up easily. With the right attitude and preparation, you can pass the second time around.
All the best!April 18, 2018 at 1:31 am
I passed 55% first attempt last paper! A big big thank you to opentuition.com, i could never have done it without your amazing tutors from the very first paper F1 to my last P7, thank you. Congrats to all you have passed. And to all who failed I encourage you to keep knocking that door until those hinges fall apart, best of lock in the next session.April 18, 2018 at 8:51 am
Don’t be discouraged. I was also bad at time management and never done all questions within 3 hours. English is not my first language and I am quite low at writing. Normally I could only complete 75-80% and leave the other 20% untouched. For P7, I’ve once read from a student on OpenTuition that for P7, we should start with optional questions and Q2 first and then do whatever you can for Q1. With this technique, we will ensure to complete 65 mark rather then only done 35 mark on Q1 and really rush for the remaining. Thanks to that advice, I have attempted Q2,3,4 completely and start to tried Q1 when there was only 20 minutes left. I wrote as much as I could for the easy parts (about 7-10 marks), try to get professional mark by making Introduction and Conclusion on the Q1a even I couldn’t write even a word due to no time. But it turned out a good strategy as I got 59 over 75.
Hope this could help.April 18, 2018 at 5:48 pm
congratsApril 18, 2018 at 5:51 pm
Last 3 times 47 48 48
what should I do to get the pass mark! Anybody can help?April 19, 2018 at 12:21 am
My study plan that has worked for me is as follows:
1. Plan time for going through entire opentuition lecture, and the amount of study kit questions I can comfortably attempt per day, with time for revision and Article reading. I am usually able to complete study in 2 month.
2. Watch opentuition lectures and read notes within my planned time frame to get an understanding of the paper, or just an idea of what is expected of the paper. I don’t try to know everything at this stage.
3. Practise all the questions in my study kit in the order they are issued in accordance with the number of questions I plan to attempt per day. I am usually clueless for the first 3/4 of the study kit but the repetitive questions start making sense the more I practise. I research what I don’t know or unsure about at this stage through internet searches, and opentuition ask lecturer forum, revisit my opentuition notes, and in some cases, lectures where I think I might have missed something.
3. Read ACCA articles on the examinable paper. I usually read what interest me.
4. Look back on questions that were troubling during study to challenge my understanding.
5. I do my questions in the exam in order of the easiest makes first. That way I start my paper with confidence.
I hope this helps in your future attempt.April 19, 2018 at 5:04 pm
