FTMS Tips: ACCA Exam Strategies - Before the Exams


  • Have a study plan/strategy
  • Obtain basic knowledge – textbook, attend a course
  • Practice past exam questions, answers in full (how many questions should I practice?)
  • Read model answers and summarise the answers into points - write down those points
  • Read Student Accountant articles
  • Practice writing under exam condition (3 hours, 5 questions)
  • Write legibly – Practice!

FTMS TIPS: ACCA EXAM STRATEGIES - DURING THE EXAMS:

  • Using the 15 minutes RAP time
  • Do question one first, answer in order, not at random (e.g. Q1a, Q2c, Q4b ….)
  • Do not overspend your time in Q1
  • Do not write in one long uninterrupted paragraph, split your answers into points
  • Do not just focus on theory, use the scenario, answers must be tailored to the scenario
  • Answer the required number of questions, even though some parts may not be fully done
  • Give a good presentation of the answers with appropriate use of headings, paragraphs, sentences, table format
  • Always begin each new question on a fresh page
