FM sitters found sections A and B hard, and section C easy… That meant overall the paper has been given an ‘OK’.

Meanwhile, AFM was said to be: “not hard, but complex.” Those who got the land valuation/depreciation question found that one awkward, and many sitters are still unsure about the difference between currency swaps and forex swaps. And you had six marks to explain it all!

Sitters also suggested that the CBE practice tests on the ACCA website are way faster then excel spreadsheets in the exams themselves.

We also heard of quite a few students who didn’t get their RI exam to ‘launch’.
