I suggest ACCA changes P3 paper marking process, this paper is all about practical applications, how can I be sure my suggested solution is being fairly considered? The exam Q case is very specific, my suggested exam answer would perfectly work well in my country, while it may be considered totally not good approach in other country, how can I be sure that the markers are not single minded? Since currently, each answer sheet is only marked by one marker...
I suggest, for P3 paper only, each student's answer sheet should be marked by 5 different mindset markers (e.g. They don't communicate with each other and coming from different country, such as marked by 5 FCCA members, after all it's about real world application, and those FCCA they are in business world, instead of by uni. Professor), the students final score should be averaged, to get a pass or fail.
How others reading this consider, I'm welcome all kinds of comments.
Another thing, personally, I think text books are too theorical, not suitable for revising P3 exam, what if the publisher can offer a case book, with many many real world examples that applied and listed under each P3 model?
I think we all learn by copying others, and then get developed our own mindset, by learning the specific "case book", we can get a sense of how the business is doing currently, the sequence of learning is read the case book under a heading of P3 theory, instead of reading the real world news, and try to link with P3 theories.
I suggest ACCA supply more recommended reading material, past paper and technical article alone are not sufficient, I think...
The idea for publishing "Case book" is perfect it will surely help the P3 students to see how can they apply the models in real world.
