That is the practical experience requirement of ACCA.

That one is certainly not considered practical training.

Practical training is quite a different thing if anyone were to mention that.

Not necessarily; just need to be somewhat in a role which fulfills the PER requirements.

Hi, it would all depend on you. I used to work with one of the big fours for 3 years with a background in a degree in accounting from local Uni...I resigned last year to focus on my studies. Currently, I'm studying at Help college in KL. I'm taking P2 this sem with Mr Ng Kian Tuck. I find his classes and notes very good and very informative. No doubt P2 is tough but he makes it understandable. I also like the environment. Oh yeah, there is also something called bridging classes. This one is very good for us especially degree students because it is to give us the knowledge on the accounting standards that we missed in the degree ..... and this was really good...........The fees are quite reasonable too... plus can use public transport (LRT)...I always use LRT coz the station is joint to the building via a skybridge.......So if you want to consider to take then I suggest Help lor....And as you are going to work in big four then u should take one but if you're comfortable  with two why not.....

P1 lecturer here also not bad.....I got through the first time......last sem he got world prizewinner also...Anyway, this is my opinion.....You make your own enquiries and hope you make a good decision....All the best in your future smile.gif

Man are you serious? I am taking his SBR class now and to be honest, his class is extremely boring. He does not give clear explanation when giving his lessons as well, just purely do the workings and doensn't explain why some adjustments are made (I am currently in the lesson of SOCF).

I am really worry that I couldnt pass my SBR exam and I don't think I will be studying in MCKL for my last 2 papers.

I understand under this COVID situation, the way of conducting online class might be difficult for some teachers, but I think Mr Ng can do better, pls do better if you are seeing this message, Mr Ng.

A bored student.

You can try opentuition.com to access for free ACCA course online. It works for me. Actually, you can choose which lecturers to attend ACCA classes because it is your choice. I do study my 5 prof papers (before combination of P1 & P3) in Yes Academy, Elite and Kasturi haha. Focus on SBR first before you plan next paper. All the best in Dec 2021 exams!

Hi, can anyone share their experience of remote invigilation?

Is it that you are not allowed to leave your seat even to go to the toilet during the exam?

To those who are currently working in Singapore, you might be the right one to answer to my question.

Currently, I am an ACCA member who is working in Singapore. I plan to stay in Singapore for long-term but my local Singaporean friends are taking Singapore Chartered Accountant professional papers and this makes me wonder whether I am required to take this exam or not?

I have searched around the internet and I found out that there is no direct pathway for ACCA members to convert to SA members, but ICAEW members can.
ACCA website: https://www.accaglobal.com/in/en/member/mem...rk-in-Singapore?
ICAEW website: https://www.cityacademy.sg/acca-to-aca-prom...0in%20Singapore.

With so many Malaysians working in Singapore right now, is there a pathway for us to convert our ACCA membership into CA Singapore? Or we are left with no choice but to sit for CA Singapore exams only?

Please I need some advice.

You can apply for admission as ISCA associate member and exempted from foundation module.
To become ISCA full member you need number of years working experience and pass the Professional module.

I feel that 2 publishers a bit too much, you can try out opentuition, just google it, got lots of reference and even have a forum for you to discuss with others. Good Luck biggrin.gif
