It wasn’t a Black Tuesday….

Was last Tuesday good or bad for you? Did you feel happy or sad when you left the exam hall after the ACCA P7 exam?

I only have one bit of advice after the exam and that is to forget all about your performance in the exam as you can’t change the result at all. There’s no use in worrying about the performance and instead just relax and enjoy life without having to study for P7!

One thing for sure is that last Tuesday was not as bad as the infamous “Black Tuesday” of 29 October 1929. This date is commonly considered to be the start of the Great Depression in the US in the 1920s with shares losing 13% of their value on Black Tuesday.

So, no matter how well or badly you think you may have done in the exam on Tuesday, rest assured that it definitely wasn’t a Black Tuesday.

Best of luck for your exam results but remember, forget about them until the results are out in a couple of months!
