Need a bit of advice on how to decide your optional papers? I understand that a lot depends on your job role and employer, but other than that, what considerations have you taken into account when choosing your optional papers?
Hello Fatima. It is true that selecting optional papers depends highly on what career you want to pursue in future. I am myself confused on what to select. Should I be looking at high pass rates of each so that I clear them and complete my degree or should I select them from career perspective. There should be some sort of guidance on it From Acca body as well.
In choosing options you should go for those papers which you intend to pursue in future. If its management reporting then go for p4/p5 and if its auditory roles then p6/p7. It also depends on which area you are stronger in, numbers or theory. P6/p4 are more numerical whereas p7 and p5 are more theory based. You should also look at your F5, F6, F8 & F9 scores and see where you scored higher and found interesting and pursue those
