I have failed at least 7 times, the last with 46%(so frustrating to be that close). I think the key to passing this paper is to make sure you cover all parts of the requirement if it is broken down into more than one task. Also to be careful to answer the question set!. In the past examiner's reports he has said that this is a key failing of students. My major problem is time management not knowledge. I spend too long on certain pars and hence have to rush others.

The art is to balance the need to write enough for each part in the time allocated.

Hope this helps

Hi Muhammad...
i'm a past finalist but i hear your cries.
P.5 surely gave me a hard time...infact,i should have been through with A.C.C.A by 2010...honestly.
however,my word of advice to you who gets 40%,i surely feel your pain...but,p'se P'se P'se,go back,look through examiner's comments and articles and try to understand what he means when he says application and analysis...
thats where we all fail in P.5...u have to explain the facts right as well as put them to practical use....(analysis and application).
so go back look at e answers to these past seatings and try understanding how he analyses those cases.

Best of Luck Muhammad,
