just finished the revision phase of F7 and F5 and going to sit both this session. Last semester Ive studied with you opentuition.com and passed with honors. All 80+. This is my first time im going to sit paper based exam. Looking forward to get advice from you Sir.
F5 seems to be easy for me, but since its my first paper based exam im stragling with B section. The problem is with reading for relevant info. Too much details are given. I know this is because im lack of practice. I really need your consult about which area of the syllabus I need to focus more attention on. Which are more difficult, which are more examinable and worth more. Please sir, your every word is valued as gold, Teacher, like we Persians say:)

F5 is very tough, look at the pass rates!!
Anyway, I failed this in September with 49% and I was not with open tuition. Now, I am doing F5 and F9 in December with Open T.
My advise is, do questions from past papers. Any that you get wrong or struggle with, you will then know where to focus your study. There is no point in re-reading material at this stage. Questions and challeges are the only thing that will prepare you now.
By taking questions, it shows up very quickly any weaknesses you may have.
Do not underestimate F5. Section A can be as hard as section B. The examiner does not care about key areas. Instead the approach is, if its in the book, I can ask it. September 2015 was very much like this. It is also a paper that is over-complicated in my opinion.November 28, 2015 at 3:21 pm #285966vapiano91

Agree with Gonko.
I will also be appearing for F5 this dec and this is my first acca paper ever. I have exemptions for 6 papers. What i have realized so far is that F5 is definitely not an easy paper but practice is the key. The more you practice the more you learn. So fetch all the sources you can- the revision kits, opentuition revision lectures, past papers etc. They will also help you understand the paper pattern. Also MCQ’s will need practice as sometimes we may know the answer to a question but just becoz we dont read the question well or interpret it well, we may end up getting it wrong. (this is mostly the case in theory type questions)
All the very best to all of us for the exam!! 😀December 3, 2015 at 10:56 pm #287370rustamrakhmatov27
