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.
Apparently 2015. Not too sure as yesterday was the first time I'm hearing about this.

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.

THIS.. is exactly what im thinking today. write until.. i saw everyone like massage their hand by flinging them. me too. Damn tired!! Why don't they implement computer based right now. But soon though.. lol

And I didn't use black ball pen to shade the 1st fill in our own detail page!

How ah! T_T

I went to Andrew Pang for P5. I do not like the way he handles the class. The way he present the lectures is monotonous. No student participation. Basically you just go there and sit while trying really hard to follow what he says because his voice is not clear. My friend in his P4 say he is the same way in that class as well.

How do I check whether the potential employee has got an ACCA? Is there a link in the ACCA website where I could obtain the information?

One question... In the exam I started every question on a new age but didn't start every part on one, was too stressed and it skipped my mind.. Like part a b c etc would they penalize for that??

It's perfectly fine. Actually I do mine the way you describe. Every part on a new page seems very wasteful of paper.

But HELP, Kasturi and so many other colleges still call it CAT!!
It should officially be announced by the Ministry of Education to change it since it really confuses many students!
