Is it a good idea to prepare and sit f6 and f9 in one sitting for dec 20? If yes need tips for maximum chance of passing bothSeptember 22, 2020 at 9:53 pm #586430henry1acca
At this point assuming you will be studying these papers from now up until the examination date in December this is a bad idea as it may well see you failing both. Reason being they –
1. Both are huge syllabuses and need at least 3 months studying each with constant practice
2. Are unrelated papers with the exception of the tax treatment of the NPV calculation for tax allowances in paper FM
3. Both are new subjects as there is now previous related paper as we have seen with MA > PM or FA > FR
This is just my opinion so you may succeed but both are demanding papers. Good luckSeptember 23, 2020 at 3:25 pm #586466bintetauqeer1996
Thanks for honest opinion 🙂September 23, 2020 at 3:40 pm #586467Kim SmithKeymaster
If you now plan to sit one in December and one in March, the preferable order is TX, then FM.
This is because if you were to be unsuccessful in TX, you would be able to resit it in March under the same tax legislation. The syllabus “year” is Sept-Jun/Aug for all exams except TX/ATX which is from June to the following March. So if you were to sit TX for the first time in March 2021 and have to resit, the Finance Act (for example) will be updated.September 23, 2020 at 5:01 pm #586472bintetauqeer1996
The papers i am left with is f4, f5 , f9, f6
I want to sit for 2 papers in December but i am not able to decide what combination of two would be good enough and possibly easy enough to prepare and pass in December and later leave 2 for march as i want to complete my fundamentals in march.September 23, 2020 at 5:45 pm #586475Kim SmithKeymaster
You should plan to do LW – assuming ENG or GLO you can sit on demand in later Dec/early Jan (say), or earlier if you are sufficiently ready. If you plan to sit two applied skills exams in December session you will be constrained to the same week.
