With studying for June exams starting now, making sure you’re ready is key. Planning at this early stage makes all the difference – just ask our prizewinners!

We think these are the most important steps in the first weeks of studying for a new exam – get organised before you get studying by doing the following:
1) Check the exam dates. Knowing how much time you have is essential to planning your study. You’ll also need to check that you don’t have anything disruptive (such as a holiday) planned during the exam period.
2) Get your study materials. If you haven’t already done it, purchasing study materials (especially the Complete Texts and Exam Kits) should be a top priority. ACCA always strongly recommend that you use Approved Content Providers for these materials – you can find a list of them here:
Online revision modules can be helpful too – but don’t forget ACCA have a wide range of free resources available here:
3) Create a study plan. Once you’ve checked the exam dates and reviewed the syllabus of the paper, it’s time to create a study plan. It’s usually best to use a calendar format, marking which specific areas of the syllabus you are planning to study on a given day. Make it thorough and comprehensive, but remember to keep it realistic – you need to be able to stick it.
