Anbody has any tips for SLS and presentation. I am writing it, but there isnt a lot said about so not really sure if my approach is correct…
Maybe sharing experiences… plus how many slides are normal for the presentation i am on 15 now?
ThanksOctober 27, 2011 at 5:28 pm
I replied to a similar post, read it here:
About the presentation slides…I dont think there is a prescribed number, however, I had 23. This is including the starting slide.April 21, 2013 at 8:55 pm
I failed my RAP dur to failing in SLS. MY examiner comments are as follows:
Technical and Professional Skills
1. Understanding of accountancy/business models Pass
2. Application of accountancy/business models Pass
3. Evaluation of information, analysis and conclusions Pass
4. Presentation of project findings Pass
Overall Technical and Professional Skills Pass
5. Communication Pass
6. Information gathering and Referencing Pass
7. Information Technology Pass
Overall Graduate Skills Pass
Research Report Assessment B
Skills & Learning Statement
8. Self Reflection Pass
9. Communication Skills (inc Presentation) Fail
Reasons for fail and advice for improvement:
You fail in this section as you have delivered a presentation which contains no information about the performance of your organisations performance against the comparator. As it is essential to do this in the RAP it is also essential to demonstrate the results of your in the presentation.
Skills and Learning Statement assessment Fail
Overall RAP Result F
Please tell me :
Do I need to include a latest FY in presentation?
And what Files I have to Submitt?
Thank you very muchApril 24, 2013 at 8:23 am
guys plz post ur comments I am waitingApril 24, 2013 at 8:23 am
sorry *discussionApril 24, 2013 at 5:48 pm
The Examiner Has Told, You Did Not Present The Performance Of your Organization Against Competitor.
You Have To Use Latest 3 Financial Years Info In ” TOPIC 8 “April 24, 2013 at 5:53 pm
but my Research is passed. How can I use latest information as presentation based on reseach report and my Research report is already pass. Where can i get exact infoApril 25, 2013 at 12:28 am
So, include the competitor performance in the power point presentation. If that is what examiner meant.April 26, 2013 at 12:10 pm
You do not need the latest financial statements, as you already passed ur RAP. What the marker meant is that u did not include info concerning the performances of the organisation used against its competitor. What u need to do right now is to include the info you used in ur RAP also in ur presentation. You can present ur ratio in form of graph or table and you do not need to include comments as u can do that verbally during presentation.

My mentor is based in a different country than me. We have been communicating mostly on email and Whatsapp. We agreed to do the final presentation on Skype…
Looking through the SLS exemplars, as an answer to 1st question, we need to describe regarding meetings with mentor… however when no meeting has taken place, how to document it?
Thanks!May 7, 2016 at 7:44 am
My mentor also belongs to different country but i did not mentioned this in SLS while there is no need to mentioned this. You need to write the details about your meeting not how does this meetings has been set (skype or face to face) and same with the presentation. You need to write what did you learn from presentation like improved communication, body language and blah blah blah..
remember you have to asnwer the question about what did you LEARNED from meetings not how does they was arranged.May 7, 2016 at 8:24 am
Thanks HandsomeMay 8, 2016 at 2:27 pm
Good points @Handsome- as you say the focus should be on learning – what you learned, new skills and how such techniques helped you achieve your objectives etc. What you don’t do is focus on what happened and what you or your mentor did or said. This is supposed to be a self-reflective statement not a diary or witness statement of what took place.November 7, 2016 at 10:57 pm
Wanted to ask if its mandatory for the answers to be between 350 to 650 words each?
Can one answer be around 320 words and still pass?
All other answers are in the word limit and total is 2000 words as required.
Thanks!November 8, 2016 at 12:37 am
At least 320 words per question. However it is the quality of the self-reflection that matters not the number of words. 500 words of waffle for each question would fail whereas 320 – 650 of decent evaluation should pass.November 8, 2016 at 12:46 am
Great! Thanks Trephena for being helpful as always! =)November 11, 2016 at 6:56 am
Please can anyone help me..
I will like to know whether after passing SLS in my first submission I will still need to submit an updated PowerPoint presentation in my subsequent submission of RAP.
Please it’s urgentNovember 11, 2016 at 8:31 pm
If you passed both the self-reflection and Presentation then no you don’t. Otherwise if you only passed the SLS then you will need to upload it and also if you changed company or topic but did not pass both sections 8 and 9.November 11, 2016 at 8:36 pm
Thank youNovember 12, 2016 at 7:10 am
I am confused. i just did the 4 question answering of SLS and i was just checking the ACCA website and it says that SLS should be a 2000 word assessment from Nov 16 submission onwards but the new Info Pack still asks to answer the 4 questions. Which one to follow?November 12, 2016 at 8:06 am
Confused? So am I 🙂 !!!
However I have been told by OBU that either are acceptable (but I think they have dropped the idea of the essay). So no one should worry provided the SLS is packed with self-reflection (not a ‘diary’ of what you and the mentor said and did) – how you were affected and built on your personal strengths and overcame your weaknesses for example it should be fine.
So chill baby, chill! 😀 -and good luck!November 13, 2016 at 12:26 am
Should we include commentary on the slides about the graphs?November 13, 2016 at 7:43 am
A little explanation of the key points that are relevant to the particular slideNovember 13, 2016 at 4:55 pm
thanksNovember 26, 2016 at 6:30 am
Hey!! my SLS words as per MS word count were 2002, I had reduced them but forgot to save the file. So, on the basis of two excessive words will my SLS be failed?
