ACCA releases Q&As for F5-F9
ACCA students will have been both ‘shocked’ and ‘delighted’ with the news that the association released the F5-F9 September exam ‘Questions and Answers’.
However, there was some concern about just how near it all was to the December exams – PQ magazine didn’t find out until 1 December, just days from the December sitting.
We were alerted to the news by LSBF’s ACCA team. The college’s Paul Merison said: “I am delighted to see that ACCA has published the September 2016 exam papers and solutions for papers F5 through F9, presumably to show the new exam structures on these papers match the specimen papers published earlier in the year.”
Although this would surely help students, he felt that publishing them only one week in advance of the December exam sitting meant that very few tutors or students would have had the chance to benefit, so it seemed a little odd that they were not published shortly after results in mid-October.
Merison suggested that the more past papers available to students the better, but equally he thought ACCA should have a cut-off date and not publish anything new less than two weeks before exam weeks.
