Following the Advanced Tax exam, both Assia and Augustine were reasonably happy. They could attempt all 4 questions and there were no nasty surprises.
As Assia said ‘80% of the topics covered in the QBD came up in the exam’. In fact, considering the revision course as well it was closer to 95% of the topics which is excellent.
Despite getting most of it right, there still were a few curve balls such as a couple of marks on leases and pensions that many students struggled with.
However, it is not surprising as Advanced tax has the largest syllabus of any ACCA paper. It is important to cover a wide range of topics to stand a chance in the exam. I was surprised not to see personal service companies, the super deduction of 130% and incorporation relief.
I am very proud of both Assia and Augustine. The coped well with the pressure and worked hard. They also used my Condensed Notes.
The best way to prepare for your tax exams is to learn my Condensed Notes and then practice exam questions. (by the way I do explain everything including fringe areas like the split year treatment using cutting-edge accelerated learning techniques which make it easy to understand and memorize).
If you are planning on doing Taxation or Advanced Tax in September 2022, I recommend you purchase Tax Condensed or Advanced Tax Condensed which will allow you to learn the technical rules If you then practice the key questions I recommend, you too will be ready for anything the examiner throws at you.
