I can't help but wonder if the pass rates will shoot up after they implement CBE for the F papers. I'm pretty disappointed with this move by ACCA.

Well, it would definitely increase the pass rates and all of our efforts or passing the papers by working so hard would go in vain cry.gif
But 4 attempts in 1 year looks quite attractive!

Yeah, 4 attempts a year would produce more ACCA members in a shorter time.

What I'm more concerned about is the quality of the graduates. Will this make others think lesser of ACCA members?

Because I have had a few lecturers and friends who did CPA said its crap for being MCQ.

Well, I think the quality would be affected for sure. But how will it be effected? Well either it would increase or would drop(significantly). Like for example in F1, It is not that easy to pass and the examiner can make it hell difficult it he/she wants to. Lets take F8 for instance, I did some mock questions which comprises of MCQs and they were not so easy, one of the question I remember was 'What is the purpose of IAASB?' And all the 4 options were looking correct tongue.gif

So I think ACCA would make the question very very difficult! But lets just wait and watch!

Looks like Graham is not going to make the same mistake twice. Last time he came out one easy cash flow statement and pass rate went up 10%.

CBE does not mean multiple choice question hmm.gif
It's writing using keyboards instead on paper.

Oh really? I thought it would be MCQ. Are you sure about that?

If its writing using computer I can see that it may be troublesome for students who can't type fast.

Yes.
Right now ACCA scans you exam answer sheets into the computer, send it to markers all over the world.
It's much more easier than mailing those exam papers to your house.

So the next stage now is, rather than writing it on paper and scan it into the computer, why not just do everything on the computer? No handwriting problems, no blurry scans.

I assume that you need to train for typing skills and also learn how to draw tables to do your workings for this CBE questions.

Makes more sense.

But if that's the case why did they mention that P1-P7 still must remain paper-based? Wouldn't it make more sense to have the P papers CBE as well because its mostly written answers?

Well I am pretty sure that this is impossible!!!

There might be some "Fill in the blanks" which we would need to fill, this would be the same as we do in F3 usually!

No idea why laugh.gif
Maybe they are using F levels as a test subject.
