Hope you are well.
Can anyone please guide me which paper is best to start first, in Applied Skills ? considering my age 40+ and starting my studies after almost 15 years Gap
Kindly note : Got an exemption for Applied Knowledge
Appreciate ,your suggestions .
I would say LW will be a good place to start Applied Skills because it is easier to prepare for compared to remaining 5 modules in the unit.
I also heard it is better to complete FR before AA exam, some people even choose to sit both exams together. Between PM, FM, and TX, it is your choice.
Personally, I started off in the order of:
LW (pass) -> PM (pass) -> FM (pending) -> TX (ongoing) -> FR (upcoming) -> AA (upcoming).
The reason for my choice above is because LW is the easy one, PM is the one I personally hate (experience from MA module) so got it out of the way asap. FM was enjoyable and the remaining modules seemed interesting (having enjoyed FA module) so something to look forward to, keeps me going!
On the other hand, the choice may depends on the field you work in as well. Might be better to complete modules that closely connects to your job or future job of interest.
All the best.
Thank you so much for your time and the explanation. Appreciated 🙂
Good advice from mcnugget in above post. I would add that it makes sense to attempt financial reporting relatively closely with strategic business reporting in order to retain knowledge and skills associated with financial reporting. A lot depends on which modules you think you might take as options at strategic professional level. Hope this helps.
No problem, we are all in this together 🙂
You are welcome.
