I assume that you are certain that you have studied everything properly (if you are not sure then I do suggest that you watch my free lectures – I discuss the relevant discursive areas in the lectures as well as obviously working through the calculations).
Otherwise, it is down to practice at exam standard questions. I assume that you have a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers (if not, then you really must buy one). Make sure that you attempt the questions properly yourself before looking at the answers – that is the only way of learning from your mistakes.
For Section C questions, the marks for the calculation parts are for the workings and not the final answer, so make sure you are making your workings clear for the marker. As far as the discursive parts are concerned, the examiners answers are deliberately much longer that those expected from students. Usually each point is worth 1 or 2 marks and so depending on how many marks are being allocated to that part of the question then decide how many points you should be trying to make.
Remember that you are trying to get 50% to be able to pass and so. be aiming for at least 50% on every part of every question. Allocate your time between sections and the parts of questions in section C. You will not finish everything and get everything correct – it is better to have attempted every part of every question (which does not mean finishing every part of every question) than leaving some parts of question not attempted at all.
