Failing isnt an option , its a fact of life.
Some times we win , rest we lose, It didnt mean we should ever give up.
As far as i am concerned giving up is never an option, atleast not the one after which i will never regret. Instead i'll prefer practising harder and harder to achieve what i desired than giving up on it.
This doesnt mean i'll keep my other options in field of career and education closed.

Feel free to revert back if i am not clear to you in clearing your doubt.

I agree with your article! That's what I did with exam P7 advance audit and Assurances. But having failed the exam several times it's not easy and it's frustrating. I done the advance Audit exam more then 10 times. It's more irritating that one sitting I get closer to 47 Marks and next session when I retake I get 30 or less. I just received the dec 15 result and disappointing 27 marks. But as you said I am not losing my faith and I am trying again the new March Session. Focusing on the exam technique and better writing skills. Since P7 is one of hardest exam with pass rates of 35 % or less ...

Dear Mark,
Keep going and regard fail as an opportunity to succeed, there's light at the end of tunnel, it's not hard , very soon, you will overcome in Jesus name.

Sometimes the regret of giving up in the future could be more intense than a lot of failures.

Failing is the part of everyones life and sometime it leads you to a bigger success.

Being a student of accountancy is to rationally and effectively apply your knowledge and this should be the strategy for your exams as well. In this case the knowledge is knowing the reasons of failure. You might be doing the hard work but take an opinion of a tutor or a senior after attempting a mock question and work on the areas where you are lacking at the moment.

If you have an option to appear in another exam than the one you are failing go for it with a fresh zeal and come back to this one later again more composed, prepared and oriented for a brilliant success.

Good luck!
