Hi, I was doing ACCA back in 2008 after my graduation I started with F1, F2, F3 and passed those papers in First attempt with an average of 70% marks however due to some financial circumstances I had to quite ACCA to start a job and managing my I’ll father at that time. Now I’ve re-register my self with ACCA as I have enough money to carry it out again and it’s important for me to complete the degree for my career growth.
But since I re-started studies (from last year end) it felt way difficult compared to as it was 8 years ago, I don’t know why but I’m finding hard to concentrate and gather focus and I’m really pissed off from myself, but can’t accept defeat and cannot imagine my self being a looser the rest of my life, Can anyone please suggest me how to bring my focus back and how to concentrate more on studies. I’ll be really thankful with positive replies. ThanksJuly 30, 2018 at 6:47 pm #465303annamanna

I too had a long study break. I became a member of the AAT back in 1999 and at that point decided that I did not want to carry on studying. I was never academically minded and found it hard. However as my career progressed there was always something in the back of my mind that said you must go on. So a couple of years ago I started studying again. Now at the age of 45 I have only the professional papers to go. It has been differcult at times to be motivated, especially when the exam results I wanted did not go my way. But I just wanted to prove to myself and others that I can do it, in the hope to further my career.
So I always try and remember way I started doing this in the first place and the fact I love learning something new. I worked out when the best time to study was; the evenings is a no no because by the time I get home from work I am too tired to concentrate. So I study before work and at weekends. I get distracted easerly so I go to the library when I am revising or doing mock papers.
Just think how happy you will be when you can use the ACCA letters after your name and look back at how far you have come. So what ever happens just keep going and don’t give up.
Best of luck with your studies.

I became an ACCA student when I was 39, getting exemptions from F1-F3. I then gave 2.1 (converted to F5) and passed. But I quit after that as there was no support from my husband in helping with the kids.
I have restarted at the age of 52 and self taught F4 with a 73% and recently got my results for F6 – 76%. This is the best decision I have made in my life and I am so grateful to my children, who are now all grown up, for supporting me in gaining my qualifications.
I also work 3 full days a week and have a very busy social commitment due to my husbands work. I just hope and pray that my age does not become a barrier in finding a better job. I work as a Finance Officer for a charity and I am trying to get a job in an accountancy firm as I thoroughly enjoyed Taxation. At the moment, it seems like a huge challenge but im hoping to be part qualified by next summer and hopefully doors will open up. In the meantime, I will stay focussed and optimistic.
