I am using Kaplan’s study text and test kit to prepare for the exam.
The studies text describes the chapter on budgeting in a great level of detail. Although it is good but very time-consuming.
I mean, do I really need to go through all of that or can I just watch your lectures, refer to your notes, and practice questions related to this particular chapter in order to clear the exam?
Thank you.September 2, 2021 at 7:54 am #633927
Our notes are not intended to be a Study Text but if used together with our lectures they cover more than enough to be able to pass the exam well.
Question practice is vital, but not the questions in the Study Text (most of them are not exam standard) it is the Exam Kit that you should be using for practice because all the questions are either past exam questions or are exam-standard questions.September 2, 2021 at 9:47 pm #634044
Can a full-fledged 20 marks question be expected from this chapter?September 3, 2021 at 8:27 am #634092
According to what is written in the syllabus on the ACCA website:
Section C of the exam comprises two 20 mark constructed response questions. The two 20- mark questions will come from the decision-making techniques, budgeting and control and/or performance measurement and control areas of the syllabus. These questions may also include requirements related to the information systems area of the syllabus. The section A questions and the questions in section B can cover any areas of the syllabus.September 3, 2021 at 9:36 pm #634207
Thank you for the information.
Btw, I am able to solve numerical questions correctly and with much more ease but I particularly struggle with answering theory-based questions.
Would you please advise me of some tips or points so that I am able to score well in the theory part of the exam as well?
Thanks again!September 4, 2021 at 10:45 am #634251
All I can suggest is that you watch all of our lectures and that you practice all of the questions in your Revision Kit, learning from the answers to the written parts (bearing in mind that you are never expected to write as much as the examiner writes).
