Please share any tips on how to approach the exam questions during the exam, time management during the exam and any other tips that you might have.
I’m sitting for AFM this Friday (it’s my final exam) and so far I’ve only been able attempt around 20 questions. I am thinking of redoing those questions in the next couple of days instead of attempting new ones.
Also is reading the technical articles mandatory? Can you recommend any articles that I should read for this time? I’m not sure if I will have time to go through many of them.
Thank you very much

I am doing AFM Friday too, I sat SBL today and I have done zero test questions (apart from the revision lecture OpenTuition did.
I did all the questions in the notes once though.
What do you mean by technical articles? Hopefully I am not missing a huge part of the syllabus.
Well done on this being your last exam, hopefully I will get there too.
Judging on what I have seen so far they are going to present us with something that looks complicated but we need to stay calm.
I will practice as many questions as I can over the next 2.5 days. 🙂
Technical articles can be found on the ACCA website under study support resources. But don’t worry you are not missing from the syllabus. But many people say reading the technical articles help because sometimes some questions are based on them.
Thank you. Best of luck to you as well!
What do you mean by what you have seen so far?
Yes definitely try to practice as many questions as you can.
Btw, this is the link to the response I got when I asked this same question in the ask the tutor forum. Hope it helps you as well.
Thanks very much.
I just meant the questions I had seen so far had a lot of text and a serious time contstraint.
This meant that keeping calm was really important and picking off the parts you can do.
The revision book says don’t spend all the time on the parts you are finding difficult, spend the time on the parts you can do.
I suppose we need to get to 50 marks, we don’t need to get anything correct.
Yes, very true. I hope the exam went well for you.
