It’s not until you qualify that you appreciate it.
ACCA P3 and CIMA E3 are great papers. Students often say to me that they love them but strangely enough they only realise this once they have qualified!
Over the years one major area that has distinguished the good students from the not so good students is the ability to be aware of what is happening in the economy and the business world and to link this in to the exam subject matter.
Having read this in the news the good students would then ask themselves what other businesses could be doing well in the recession and what ones will suffer. Linking this to the exam, is there an easy mark or two to make a note of the industry the case study company is involved in and how the recession will affect it? Will it be in a strong position when the recession comes to an end?
