Any thoughts on the F8 December 2016 paper?

I didn't pass and know it was down to my lecturer. Unfortunately i was more confused leaving the class than when i entered. I do some audit and i was hoping this would be an easy paper but nope.

I am going to self-study for March 2017 i think.

How did everyone else find the exam?

i was surprised at the pass rate. 40% for December 2016.

Hi Safina

Did you attend the classes and revision classroom as well?

Hi, ayesha

I did yes.

She made such a simple subject so complicated. So I'm going to do it by myself. Pretty annoyed.

Hi Safina,

Are you studying through kaplan or bpp?

Hi!

It was my fourth attempt this December and hopefully I finally passed it with 57p. I did not find it very difficult but like always fighting against the time. I would totally recommend revising the previous exam questions and practicing them as I kind of neglected that a bit previously - concentrating on theory...
Nevertheless, only on the first attempt I felt like failing the exam, later I was rather surprised that I failed so I agree the marking scheme and exam format is rather difficult and not really "understandable" for me.

Hope you pass it this March!

Kind regards,
Adam

I will do that Adam. My lecturer was not great. We'd walk out more confused after a lecture than we did coming in! But it's my own fault too for not applying the correct revision techniques.

Ayesha, i was at Manchester Metropolitan University. We used Kaplan's books but the lecturer was an employee of the University.

Hi Safina,

how are you preparing for the exam this time round and what was it that you found hard on your last sit. I am doing this in march and am nervous as I know my stuff since I have self studied using a Kaplan book and covered it all.. but not sure how more to prepare . What questions banks are people using to revise form? Where can I find more past papers, the earliest I can see are 2014 on the acca website.
