Beware last-minute ACCA exam updates

01 March 2018

Despite assurances that it wouldn’t happen again, the ACCA has released a new P1 technical article just a week before the March exam.

Concern tutors contacted PQ worried that many students in their final phase of revision would miss the article on transaction cost theory, which was posted on 26 February.

It was LSBF’s Paul Mersion who first spotted the article, 10 minutes after he had finished his final P1 revision course! He explained that there has been nothing on ‘organising transactions’ in any exam for the last 10 years and wondered with just two sittings left of P1 why is had suddenly appeared. Remember the P1 paper disappears once the new SBL exam takes over in September.

Fortunately for Merison’s students he had covered this subject in his classes. And said: “Most tutors would not have covered it as it’s not a mainstream topic. This is going to cause some panic.”
