Last diet, after our online revision classes I received a mail from James Johnson who expressed how he passed is ACCA P1 exam by using our comprehensive video lecture.

Actually, lots of students have used our video lectures to pass their ACCA exam but is result is special to me. So, I checked again to be really sure that he scored a big 89% in P1.

Furthermore this is one of a kind because it not easy to get high scores in ACCA professional level – which doesn’t rely only on technical knowledge but also testing the students like real life scenarios.  So, this implies that he had staggered across the right way to study for his ACCA exam.

Below is what he said:

“I am still not sure how it happened – what I did was that I followed your advised to study at least 1 hour daily and solve more of past papers so that I can really understand the scenarios. Is quite on believable that I got that score”.

So, the fact remains the same that big thing looks simple. Please, go through the whole syllabus at least twice if you are writing any P papers (or any paper that have case study in the questions). Hence, F papers are all about technical knowledge however things change when you get to P level.

It’s weird. When well prepared student fails suddenly and to them it ridiculous because what helped them then is no longer works. Understanding the basic knowledge helps to pass papers at the lower level – it doesn’t work in the higher level.

After all, you are studying to be a professional – someone who applies his knowledge on life scenarios.

So, note that professional focus more on scenarios and not memorizing knowledge – this is what you really need to do in the exam cases.

Furthermore, if you want to pass your exam than be like James.

Since indecision is also a decision then without delay, order for our comprehensive  video lectures that contains all you need to pass your exams with additional free support that will be available to enhance you pass your exams with ease.

To your success

Do you know why most students fail their ACCA exam? If you are a working, do you know why you shouldn’t study for more than 45minutes? Do you also know that you don’t need 100% to pass?

According to a report, these examples of innocent mistakes are committed by almost every student when writing ACCA exam but they are small potatoes compared to the most common mistake of all “cramming” to the exam hall.

Here’s the problem.

High Percentage of those that writes ACCA exam are workers and most of them only study during their leave which might be a month to the exam.

How can you overcome odds like that? This is what 10 simple mistakes you make when preparing for an exam seem to address.

These mistakes are divided into three categories:

  • General
  • Numerical
  • Written

General mistakes

  1. Leaving it all until too late. “Cramming” the night (or even the week) before the exam just does not work at this level of studying. You need to be disciplined and consistent over a period of at least two months leading up to the exams. A study diary helps.
  2. Studying for too long in one go. Concentration suffers dramatically when students try to study for longer than 30 to 45 minutes at a time. It is far better to have several short sessions a week than one marathon, and it is sensible to take regular short breaks.
  3. Spending too much time on favourite topics. It is human nature to avoid things we don’t like but this does not improve your ability in problem areas. As I always say, “focus on your weaknesses at home, and on your strengths in the exam”.
  4. Failing to answer the specific requirements of a question. Students who don’t read requirements carefully (a couple of times even!) often misinterpret what they are being asked to do. Questions asking for “advantages of acquisition” will generate plenty of answers that cover both advantages and disadvantages. Questions about “operating gearing” often spark extensive but irrelevant discussion of “financial gearing”.
  5. Not doing enough timed question practice. Students tend to prefer reading their notes and textbooks rather than subjecting themselves to the problem of attempting full questions under timed conditions, however you must remember that examiners don’t care what you know, only what you can apply in the exam.
  6. Not attempting a full mock exam. An extension of mistake 5. The prospect of sitting for two or three uninterrupted hours to complete a full mock will fill many students with dread, but there is little better to prepare them for the rigours of real thing. The first time you sit an exam in full should not be on the day of the real thing!Mistakes in numerical questions
  7. Trying to do everything. It is important to remember that you do not need 100% to pass an exam and that you can afford to make some mistakes and even ignore fiddly complications and still achieve a solid pass. At the top level papers for ACCA there is often too much information to realistically deal with in the time available so you need to use your judgement to focus on the easy marks.
  8. Not showing workings. It is all too easy in the heat of an exam to make “silly” mistakes in calculations but if full workings are shown a large proportion of the marks can still be earned for the method that was being applied. Without workings markers can give you very little credit. Mistakes in written questions
  9. Not breaking up text with headings. There is little worse than trying to mark a paragraph that lasts three pages. You need to clearly break down your text into mark able chunks, and what better way to do this than to give each block of writing a title to explain what it covers.
  10. Ignoring the specifics of the scenario given. Students have to learn to apply the technical content of the syllabus to the context of the scenarios they are given. The “advantages of IT for an airline” will be quite different to the “advantages of IT for a sandwich shop”. You cannot just regurgitate the textbook and expect to pass higher level papers.

To your Success,

Tayo Stephen.

Here is some advice from years of teaching all papers

Now that you are preparing for your ACCA June 2017 diet exam – here’s a little food for thought on which paper to take next..

Wordy and Numbers papers together: F4 & F5, F7 with F8, P1 with P2, P3 with P4 etc. These are generally wise choices however students who do this have a tendency to over focus on a particular paper. Avoid this big mistake – generally split your studying 60%-40% but not below this. The secret to the wordy papers is generally past paper & question technique – this might takes time bur will triple your chances of passing your ACCA exams.

Do F7 before F8 (or simultaneously): Just because you will assimilate faster with some audit risks.

Do P2 immediately after F7: There are lots of similarities and you will find the groups techniques particularly useful again.

Do P7 as soon as possible after P2: This will be of big advantage as the major principles of corporate reporting standards (not calculations though) are all important in Advanced Audit and Assurance.

Do P1 as soon as possible after F8 (or together): There are lots of similarities regarding internal audit and corporate governance which will help you in the exam hall.

Don’t do P3 or P4 alone: This might sound odd to you however; with my years of teaching experience I realized that there is a tendency to “over study” these papers. Usually most students in writing ACCA skills level exam depended on hard study and memory work which helped them to pass their exam but later realized that this study technique isn’t working in the professional level. Furthermore, the key is understanding the principles and applying them like a real like scenarios because the examiner expect you to answer the question like a professional.

If taking 3 papers – try and ensure at least 1 is wordy: These papers are less technical and need less knowledge work – P1 is a good filler paper if you want to write 3 papers this diet.

P7 needs a rethink of your technique and thus more time: As mentioned earlier it builds on Corporate reporting (and AA) and needs to be done ASAP after corporate reporting particularly – however do be aware that the technique for this paper is vastly different. The examiner expects are a far greater range of points and thus knowledge than any of the other papers – so it’s a proper combination of lots of knowledge work and application skills. Therefore be wary of doing this alongside more than 1 other paper.

Any paper you will write I hope this will aid your decision – they’re not meant to be rules, rather just things for you to consider when choosing the paper to write in your next ACCA exam.

To your exam success,

Alluh Nelson.

P.S:  Our current economy situation won’t last forever and I will really like you to prepare yourself for future opportunities now.

How to start studyinghttp://starrygoldacademy.com/acca/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/ACCA_SilverLP-1.png

It takes courage to start a project. There is a proverb that says all men have fear but only the brave take action. I believe you are brave.

So, here is how you can start preparing for your ACCA March 2017 diet exams.

Step 1: Get determined

A determination is a skill that can be learned especially when you have something that you are looking up to. Being a certified accountant will open lots of opportunity for you that ordinary person won’t be able to like flexibility in your career, wealth, advantages and sense of accomplishment.

With this kind of determination in your mind then you step closer to your success.

Step 2: Study the right material

It is always good to study the right material. Over time we realized that most ACCA students study different materials and this really confused them most time. So, study a particular material like our comprehensive video lectures then practice past questions to measure your progress.

Step 3: Set yourself a weekly target

This implies that you need to have an efficient weekly study guide to suit your daily activities and with consistency.

Step 4: Start now

 

Applying this steps using our approved comprehensive ACCA video lectures

Step 1: Get determined

I will be giving you tips on a weekly basis on how you can pass your ACCA exams with ease.

Step 2: study the right material

Our videos are in line with current ACCA syllabus

Past papers are treated in the video lecture

You will be a chance to ask the lecturer questions 24/7 in our FREE support online forum.

Step 3: Set yourself a weekly target

Go through the video lecture at least an hour daily (very early in the morning) and any day that you did not study due to good reason (excuses)  punish yourself by giving away a certain amount of money to your friend or colleague as a act of discipline.

Step 4: Start now

You know indecision is a decision and sitting on the fence without taking any action is a dangerous position to be in life. So, get our comprehensive video lectures now that will double your chances of passing ACCA your March 2017 diet exams.

P.S. I strongly advice that you get our comprehensive video lectures that will help you to study at your own convenient time which have also helped lots of students to pass their ACCA exam and I believe that very soon you will be one of them. You know your ACCA exam is next month (March) and you really need to prepare very well for your ACCA exam so that you can qualify on time while you start enjoying the benefits of been a certified accountant.

Dear Starry Gold Team,
God has been on your side, You are the best. I cleared F5, F7 and F9 in skills level, and this just-concluded December 2016 diet, I passed P1 and P2 but left with the only P3, P5 and P7. – Yaya

I score 75% in F7. The videos and the printable soft copy were very helpful. I am ready for the March diet exam. Thanks to Starry Gold. – Nadine

Hey Starry Gold, Am so excited! I passed P1. Your video lecture is the best. I need to prepare for P6. Please, how much is it?Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android – Stephanie

Yes. I am one of them. I passed my ACCA P4 exam using only your video lectures God bless you.

I am feeling on top of the world after seeing all this testimony. Furthermore, we are sorry if we didn’t post your testimony because it will be too long here. However, we will compile the list and upload it on our testimonials page.

Hence, If you didn’t pass your exam please don’t give up. Moreover, not all of our students pass their exams. However, you can start planning towards passing ACCA March 2017 diet examination NOW because time waits for no man.

Hello Professional Students,

This is Starry Gold Academy ACCA Silver approved learning partners (SALP).

Definitely, before a football match, the players usually train very hard and also learn the tactics on how to win the match (on the field). This implies that before your ACCA professional exam, you need to fully understand things you must do doing your exam which we usually teach our students and I glad that the below principles have been proven by our students pass rate. So, in today’s blog, I will be explaining the principles to you so that you can also pass your exam with ease.

Things you must do/understand before you get to the exam hall:

You know most of ACCA professional papers is all about case study and you need to approach the questions like a consultant because the examiner is testing you on real life scenarios so you must read wide to cover the entire syllabus especially if you have a tight schedule. So, you need to learn to multiply by 1.5 – vital to good time management in the exam. So how hard can that be? Why 1.5? Well, that is the number of minutes you have to get a mark on P Paper (180 mins/100 marks = 1.8, but allowing 30 minutes to read the paper even after planning time leaves 150 mins/100 marks = 1.5 minutes per mark). This recommendation is adopted from one of ACCA examiner’s report because it is common for candidates to spend a disproportionate amount of time on questions with few marks. That why you need to understand what you have to do to get just one mark.

Things you should do when given the paper in the exam hall

You know ACCA professional level is not all about writing the exam but also  a strategic exercise, so you must:

–  Plan your time once you receive your exam paper.

– Organized, which questions to answer.

– In what order and, most importantly.

– How to score the most marks out of each question to ensure that you reach the magic 50%.

– Lastly, you need to plan your answers which is very important.

Actually, one the major mistakes students make in the exam hall is that they believe that the first 30 minute is for reading the questions only instead of also planning. I mean critical planning because you need to decide the questions you intend to attempt and it must be questions that you fully understand so that you can have full confidence that you will pass your ACCA exam.

Things candidates should do when starting to write – this means your presentation skills.

The examiner expects you to analyze the case study problem and also identify things that are absent. Furthermore, research has shown that there is three major type of exam presentation:

a good content and well presented – these are easy to read and mark.

a good content but not well presented – these are difficult to read and to mark.
a good presentation but poor content – it usually exam failure.

So, I strongly encourage you that you have all the positive quality so that you can pass your ACCA exam with ease and you will get all this quality in our comprehensive ACCA video lectures.

To your ACCA exam success,

Tayo Stephen.

Finally, Finally, Finally, Starry Gold Academy is now ACCA silver approved learning partners (SALP).

Over the space of 10 years of teaching experience, I have realized that adopting an effective study technique is one of the most important ways to pass your ACCA exams with ease and these principles have been proven by lots of our students pass rate.

Below is how you can effective study techniques for your ACCA exam:

1. Make study a habit

It’s not easily working and writing ACCA exam at the same time. But, you need to study as possible so that you can pass your ACCA exam with ease and you also need your job to pay ACCA bills (exam fees, subscription fees). So, I do advise our students to make the best use of their time. For instance, discipline yourself to study at least one hour daily) precisely very early in the morning) when your brain is still fresh to assimilate faster and if you fail to study for a day you will have to punish yourself and give away a certain amount of money that will pain you when you give it away.

2. Study the right material

Lots of students have used our video lectures to pass their exams and we have produced lots of certified accountant across Africa and that one of the major reason why ACCA gave us silver approved learning partners. Furthermore, our videos are in line with current syllabus; you can study at your own convenient time to suit your busy schedule; 8 diets past questions are fully treated in the videos; the soft copy will be available that you can print out and use it as a note. So, I strongly advise that you study the right materials like our ACCA approved comprehensive video lectures.

3. Ask questions if you don’t understand

You know ACCA exam is all about questions. This implies that the more questions you ask and solved the higher your chances of passing ACCA exam, That why we have FREE support forum where you can ask the lecturer any question relating your ACCA  when stock.
