Hi Sir, I hope you are well. I was solving questions and i seen alot of theory in next pages of forcasting techniques chapter in kaplan. There were advantages, disadvantages, implications etc.
So, i wanted to know from which chapters the theoritical questions may asked. And how many theoritical and how many practical (Calculation involved) questions will asked. ?
If there is no proper answer for no. Of theoritical questions, can you please give me an estimatimation.
As the MA mostly have Practical questions but i am confused about theoritical part in sense of marking / examination.
Should i focus on theory of practical chapters equally like forcasting techniques, Overhead, labour, material, job and process costing etc.
Thanks in advance.June 16, 2020 at 8:59 am
All topics in the syllabus can be examined as calculations or as theoretical questions because the examiner is checking that you have not just learned ‘rules’ but that you understand as well.
I cannot give you an estimate because every persons exam is different – the questions for everyone are selected at random from a big bank of questions by the computer.
Appreciate that you cannot be asked to type out answers to theoretical questions, only to select the correct answers from a choice of answers.
If you are watching my free lectures then you do not really need the Study Text – the lectures are a complete free course and cover everything needed to pass the exam well.
When you have finished studying then practice the specimen exams on the ACCA website and make sure you have a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers (BPP and Kaplan) because they are full of exam standard questions.
