    ACCA F1 Tips & FAQs - Kaplan

    How is marking awarded?

    About 30% of the syllabus is devoted to theories which need to be learnt, such as organisation, management, leadership, team formation and motivation. Questions tend to ask for definitions rather than requiring any application of the theories.

    Around 20% of the syllabus is devoted to areas where a degree of application is required, such as economics and PEST analysis. You need a more in-depth knowledge of these areas in order to interpret the question and answer them correctly.

    Plan your time effectively

    There is a huge volume of content to learn, do this bit by bit, don’t try to cram it all at the last minute.

    You need to know the theorists in the syllabus – make a crib sheet of all the theorists and learn it.
    Use mind maps or mnemonics to help you retain the knowledge.
    Read the questions extremely carefully. The existence of just one word can completely change your perception of the question.
    F1 is not as time pressured as F2 or F3, so you should ensure you steadily read over not only the question, but also all of the potential answers.

    Answering multiple choice questions

    In some of multiple choice questions you should try and eliminate all of the wrong options before coming to your conclusion as to which one is correct. This will avoid rushing your decision and choosing one which “looks about right” whilst overlooking the correct answer.

    Students with a good overall knowledge of a wide range of areas will have a greater chance of passing this exam that students with who have only have an in depth knowledge of a small range of topics.

    Practice as many questions as possible across the syllabus, and don’t just concentrate on the areas you like.

    Check over your answers

    Before you end the exam ensure you’ve checked that all questions have been attempted. There is no negative marking, so you could make an educated guess at a multiple choice question if you really have no idea.


    Q. Do I need to know all the theories?

    A. As F1 is 100% compulsory you need good syllabus coverage of all topic areas. It is therefore essential that you are comfortable with the key theories you have covered in your course.

    Q. What is the best way to study for F1?

    A. F1 is basically a memory test exercise, but you need to make sure you do more than just read the material over and over again. Note taking is an excellent way to revise a topic like this, start on page one, try and condense the long passages of text down to shorter notes. If you already know something do not just write it down. Work through the entire book taking notes, then when you get to the end, bin your notes and start again. By writing things down and thinking how to put long text into shorter notes you are storing the information in a different part of your brain which retains information for longer.

    Q. The syllabus is huge, are there any areas I can miss out?

    A. Unfortunately not. The point of an objective test exam is that it can ask you anything from any area of the syllabus so there is no escaping it I am afraid!

    Q. There are so many theorists, do I need to learn them all?

    A. You need to learn the theorists which are examinable by name. These could easily be tested in multiple choice questions – perhaps scenario type questions.

    Q. How should I approach the exam?

    A. Follow what we call a two wave approach. Work through all the questions initially answering all the ‘easier’ questions first, then work through the remainder. If you get stuck with a question, do not spend too much time on it, leave it to the end but remember to go back to it. Make sure you answer all questions. If in doubt, use process of elimination, and if you are still struggling, guess!
