I am taking the FR exam for the 6th time – I really need help passing this exam…it is a matter of 6 marks from passing or 3 MCQs.
I was hoping to get some one to one help on FR (as well as AA if possible). But in terms of section C, is there a difference between what they ask you per 6 months?
So the last two exams have asked in section c about preparing a statement of profit/loss, however I think in Mar and Jun, they asked to complete the extract around single company statement of financial position? Should I change things? put focus on one area?
I just need some guidance and really want to pass or a strategy to pass this exam as it is causing me a lot of issues.

If it is your sixth time then you must be doing something fundamentally wrong in your preparation.
Firstly, please do not try to question spot as it is not going to work. You are then relying on a specific question to arise and if it doesn’t then you are going to fail. You need to cover the entire syllabus to ensure that you can pass the exam plus practise all the types of questions that can appear in Section C. Do not take any short cuts!
With regards to your revision, then you need to be on top of the technical knowledge first. I’d hope that this is up to speed given the number of sittings so far but the best way to work on this knowledge is to hammer the Section A and Section B questions. Focus on a particular syllabus area each time and gradually build up that knowledge.
Once you are on top of the technical knowledge then you can work through the past exam questions in Section C. When doing this you need to do it to time and under exam conditions, so that means not using any notes and answering the questions using the exam software. You have to replicate the exam conditions as otherwise the revision is pointless.
If you do this then your chances of passing will improve significantly.
Thanks and good luck.
