ACCA March Exams – Day Five

How was the last day of the March exams. Here’s what sitters said…


General felt to be an OK paper from the feedback we received.

There was a question on NPV without inflation, capital allowances and working capital.

There was also an Islamic finance discussion question in section C for many, and something on fintech.

Some sitters admitted they were thrown by the examiner asking about floor value of bonds. “I’ve never seen it mentioned like this before, “ said one sitter.


Described as ‘tricky’ but better than December – if that makes it any easier!

In the Open Tuition Instant Poll 18% of sitters said the march sitting was a disaster for them and another 38% found it hard.

Time is a big enemy for many. As one sitter explains: “I love AFM and quite comfortable in all areas, it’s just the time that messes me up. I start rushing and missing out on reading things properly and then too cannot attempt it all. It was my second time today – last time I got 49%.”

Another PQ said that despite passing everything first time they were totally lost in this exam, mainly due to time. They also felt the questions just seemed odd.
