ACCA EXAMS – Day 3

08 September 2016

Your feedback from Day 3 of the ACCA September exam sitting...

F5 Performance Management
Some tough MCQs this time around. Students felt they were more theoretical.
Several PQs were disappointed that there was no demand equation or ABC questions.
Overall candidates seemed to feel the September test was better than June’s, but then that would not have been hard!


P1 Governance, Risk & Ethics
An ‘OK’ paper, but there were quite a few comments about the fact that the exam seemed to cover just a narrow bit of the syllabus. The worry is with four sittings a year students will see more random things as the examiner tries to cover the whole syllabus.


P5 Advanced Performance Management
“Time, time, time what has become of me” was the critical factor again.
Some students were put off by the length of the scenarios in section B. This made it hard to absorb the information and understand what was required. It also overwhelmed some.
The questions covered lean management & CoQ/TQM, benchmarking, ABC & KPIs and transfer pricing.
