ACCA December tips
03 November 2017
We will have lots of tips in the next issue of PQ magazine and coming online here at www.pqmagazine.com. But before that here’s a taster...
F5: As there is no longer formal reading time you should plan your answer to section C before you start to write!
F6: Spend at least 50% of your revision time on section C.
F7: In section A expect non-core topics like inflation and specialised entities to be tested.
F8: Try to use a tabular format in your solutions where relevant as the examining team says sitters who do this score better marks.
F9: The efficient market hypothesis is likely to be tested in section A.
P1: You are advised to still use the notional 15 minutes to plan the big section A 50-marker question above all others.
P2: Read the exam team articles on fair value measurement, capital reporting (2), P&L vs OCI, integrated reporting, etc.
P3: Students must not underestimate the importance of practising the 50-marker t help their time management in the real thing,
P4: remember this paper is not a maths test – the examiner wants to see how you can communicate & give good management advice.
P5: Read the recent exam team articles o complex business structures, big data, integrated reporting and BCG and 5 forces.
P6: Personal service companies, share schemes and company purchase of won shares are all topics you would expect to see in December
P7: Candidates are expected to apply their knowledge to the scenario in order to score well.
