A story here,
After giving TX exam in September 2019, i skipped my next ACCA paper in December 2019 and then in March and September 2020 i gave FR,AA,FM but failed my AA in first attempt, Later on attempted my PM paper which i skipped in Dec 2019 in December 2020 but i took a year break to give AA paper in between that i skipped an attempt of AA too in March 2021 but passed AA in second attempt in December 2021 and now doing my professionals in 2022 and hoping to complete my ACCA in Sep 2022.
So my question here is..
If i took a gap year and skipping my papers during ACCA affiliation status, will it have a negative impact on my CV and future jobs that i will be searching for in Big4?February 8, 2022 at 7:53 am #648268Kim SmithKeymaster

This is a study/exam support site rather than a careers advice site. Given that the pandemic has resulted in many hiccups in exam progression, it should not surprise employers that many applicants will have taken longer to qualify than might otherwise be expected. Your CV will only indicate when you became an affiliate – you won’t give chapter and verse on what you sat and when.
Depending on where you are I wonder why you would be looking for a job only in Big4. In many parts of the world, they recruit a graduate intake once or twice a year and train students up to pass the firm’s preferred professional qualification alongside internal training in the firm’s methodology. If they get recruitment right, their supervisors, managers, experts, etc will be “home grown” – and they will have little if any need to advertise positions for qualified staff.
