How is it best to prepare for the ACCA Qualification Knowledge module exams?
Students should ensure that as part of their revision, they are familiar with the multiple choice style of questions as well as the wider range of objective question types, and multi task questions if taking a computer-based exam.
It is recommended that students sit the relevant CBE Specimen exam.
Are section weightings for computer-based exams the same as for paper-based exams?
Both computer-based and paper-based exams have the same weightings for different syllabus areas. Weightings for each area have been given to reflect their relative size and importance.
