    ACCA F3 Tips & FAQs - Kaplan

    F3 Financial Accounting (FA)

    Practice answering exam questions

    Make sure you know your double entries – you cannot pass the exam without knowing these well.

    The exam can be quite time pressured, therefore practice as many questions as possible to time before the exam – the more you practice the faster you will become.

    Practising as many questions as possible prior to the exam will also allow you to get used to the way in which the questions are asked the best way to approach the questions.

    If you’re stuck, move on!

    The F3 exam will involve a mixture of question styles, some of which are very quick to answer and others which will be quite time consuming. It is important that you do not spend too much time on questions which you are struggling with. If you are not 100% sure what to do in a question you should move on and come back to it later on.

    Understand the basic

    Common problem topics for students are Cashflow Statements, Dealing with Errors, Actuals, Prepayments and Incomplete Records. For all of these topics you need to have a good understanding of the basics before you can answer questions. Make sure you put the work in before your exam.

    FAQ s

    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’ (non calculation) 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!

    Q. Will all areas of the syllabus be examined; are there any that I can ignore?

    A. The point of objective test exams is that it can ask you anything from any area of the syllabus so make sure you cover all syllabus areas

    Q. Are the Computer Based Exam questions random?

    A. Yes, they are generated automatically once you input your student registration number

    Q. Are there more theoretical questions then numerical?

    A. The mix is completely random.

    Q. Are there fill-in-the-blank questions, if so how many?

    A. Yes, and their appearance is completely random, but normally around 25%

    Q. Should I leave questions out and come back to them at the end?

    A. No, always guess your answer in case you run out of time. Make a note and return to it later, if you have time.

    Q. If I know the topic area really well can I spend more time on it?

    A. Generally, no - you must allocate the same time per mark throughout the paper but any time saved can be allocated to a complex question. Always, guess your answer and come back if time.

    Q. Is there a pattern of answer in the multiple choice paper of most answers being either A B C or D?

    A. No.

    Q. Can we use a printable data retaining calculator for the exam?

    A. No, although the majority of questions are multi choice, there will be a number of questions requiring single entry of a figure.
