ACCA EXAMS – DAY THREE

ACCA EXAMS – DAY THREE

How did PM and APM go? You tell us…


PM

Time management was a problem for some, with several sitters admitting to leaving the last question blank!

It was even suggested (tongue-in-cheek) that time management should be a topic in PM!

Those who got the building block question in section C found that a tricky test. “I didn’t type a lot,” admitted one sitter. It didn’t help those leaving the exam room to discover that others got ratio analysis and variances. Question envy will be a key emotion post exam with the CBEs.



The MCQs were a lot better than last time, suggested one Open Tuition student.

For many this exam could go ‘either way’.





APM

Was felt to be a tough but fair exam, although very timed pressured with some confusing wording thrown into the pot. Q1 was on the balanced score card and KPIs, Q2 on corporate failure and Q3 BPR.

There is a worry that some PQs are making past papers fit the September test, but both Q2 and Q3-type questions have appeared before.
