I have booked to sit P5 in March 2019 session. I have previously sit the P4 paper twice and failed, that’s why I’m changing my paper now.
I have downloaded the study kit from the opentuition website and got a overview of how the exam is going to be. But I’m a a little bit nervous about my first sitting since my unsuccessful attempts in P4. I actually like P5 better and believe I can perform better as well, I think it’s because I put my time and energy in P4, that’s why I am only changing my paper now.
Do you think I should start with the exam papers straight away or what kind of strategy I should use? I am self-studying P5 right now.
I think you should read a chapter and listen to the lecture. At the end of each lecture some questions are suggested, so try one to reinforce what you’ve studied (some questions/papers are no longer on teh ACCA site, but most can be count by Googling the question name + P5 + ACCA + Paper date.).
One you are through all of the notes, start on the more recent ACCA papers that are still available. Note the current exam format.
Question practice is very important as there is not so much ‘fact’ examined in this syllabus.
Thank you sir for your advices.
I have started doing the exam papers, and I actually think this paper is easier than AFM for me. But I don’t want to take the exam lightly as this paper does have a very low pass rate.
Can you offer any insights on why or how candidates fail Advanced Performance Management? So that I can be aware of the traps and be as fully prepared as I can for the March 2019 exam sitting.
Glad you are finding APM easier than AFM.
