ACCA scripts need to be neater
22 November 2016
ACCA F9 candidates should manage their own learning well and not be totally reliant on a single textbook or revision course for their knowledge, said the examiner in the September Examiner’s Report.
The examiner also wants candidates to be more precise in presenting answers, in particular numerical questions in section C. Students need to how all their workings and they should be presented with the same neatness of presentation as the main schedule of figures.
Meanwhile the F7 examining team said there could be two reasons why the September performance in section C was “a little disappointing”. Firstly, candidates are not giving themselves enough time to answer section C properly. Secondly PQs might have been confused with the combination of interpretation and consolidation issues in Q32. However, the examiner felt the structure of the question should have allowed candidates to pick up the necessary marks.
Both the P4 and P6 examiners noted that not all of the questions were completed on their papers. Time management is a key complaint of students sitting these papers.
