You need stamina for SBL
27 March 2019
Do you have the stamina to pass the ACCA SBL exam? In the most recent Examiner’s Report the examiner said they were worried there are ‘indications’ that sitters are running out of stamina during the four-hour test. The examiner said it was also noticeable that the quality of answers tailed off toward the end of the exam.
The examiner is strongly recommending that students take mock exams before the real thing under exam conditions to get used to the demands on concentration, thinking and writing which the longer exam required.
Students are also showing the examiner which questions they are struggling with most! The examiner said: “Mostly candidates answered the questions in order. Where they did not, they appeared to be leaving one question, which they liked least, until the end.” The concern here is that in future exams the examiner has said the questions may follow a timeline or have question requirements that progress in other ways. That means you are getting a direct recommendation to answer the requirements in order.
