Sitting P1 and P3 on Dec 2017 Exam?

Hi guys,

I stupidly missed the September 2017 exam deadline and to save time I'm thinking of studying P1 and P3 at once in the December exam sitting.

Has anyone got any thoughts or recommendations on this?

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated!

It would make sense on taking two P courses in December seeing that you will not be writing this September. I am also taking two courses for December sitting P1&P2 my reason is i want one course which is literature and another which is calculation that way i can balance it of easily, also since i just completed F8 and F7 these are still fresh in my mind hence my decision

I am guessing you want to complete P 1&3 as soon as possible to avoid it being merged when you have not yet completed them. The merger will only take effect for the September 2018 sitting meaning you have until June 2018 two write both courses separately i would say that is ample time to be done with them.

If interested you can reach out and we can work together.

Hi Chloe,

I believe you have enough time to prepare two papers for December'17 session. To be precised, I believe if you are currently doing any job then you would need to be very strict in regular study which is tough but doable OR, if you are a full time student then doing two papers in one session is a comfortable choice.

I am currently doing full job and planning to seat for p3 in December. I have already cleared my p1. I am available If you are interested to work together on p3.
