I took a break from ACCA for 2 sittings and now I hear that syllabus has changed and the exam paper pattern and duration has changed for the September ’18 sitting onwards. Could you please confirm if this is true and what exactly are the changes.
Due to work pressure I haven’t started studying for P5 and I’m planning to start now with your notes and lectures. I know it’s too short a time but is there any chance that I can still carry it out and give the exam in September?July 10, 2018 at 12:02 pm
I assume the sittings you missed were March and June. If so, there are no material syllabus changes. In fact the only recent changes were the removal the performamce prism and beyond budgeting and the addition of big data (a while ago).
The exam structure is: a 50 mark case study and two 25 mark questions.
Time 3hrs 15 minutes (old reading time now incorporated into total time).July 17, 2018 at 11:06 am
I was going through your study notes and it includes the topic of a performance pyramid which you said, it has been removed from the p5 syllabus.July 17, 2018 at 11:44 am
My error. I meant to say performance PRISM. I have edited that post.
