One good, one bad – that’s performance management for you!
As one September PM sitter said: “Such an unpredictable exam. I feel like ACCA collate all the nasty stuff and put it into one exam.”
Many said they found this a hard one. As another sitter said: “Section C, th first question was hard. Even some of the MCQs were tricky. I feel like all the worse little topics came up.”
A fellow sufferer agreed: “Terrible paper this morning – they picked three of my worst subjects!”
“Awkward’”, “tricky” and “very tough” were also used a lot in Facebook groups
Another hard test too according to the Open Tuition Instant Poll. Some 22% described the September sitting as a disaster, and 43% said they found it hard. Just 32% said the exam was OK.
“Nice, with nothing too nasty,” is how one sitter described APM this time around. Another sitter explained: “I feel quite confident about APM this morning. All the questions were absolutely manageable, nothing too tricky.”
Yet another seemed shocked and simply said: “All OK, can’t complain!”
So, more decent subjects and formulas this time, compared to June.
