    What on earth do you mean 'GFY' at least make sense if you wish to reply to me. You don't intimate me.

    Did I miss something??? When did Blobby ask to get to get 'intimate' with Glynis?

    However, I will happily inform you that Steve's on a well deserved holiday with Glynis.

    Hard work does pay off.

    Maybe im completely wrong but i thought the last word of GFY might be 'Yourself'?

    Im sure people on here would be extremly helpful if the original poster wasnt whinging and made a more structured analysis of issues.

    In my own opinion, if i struggled that much with a subject and work in general, i think i would realise my calling maybe wasnt accountancy and try another route? There are other areas of business that AAT would be useful for and eliminate the need to further stress yourself out trying to achieve ACCA?

    Agreed, its gets to the point were you need to make this decision.

    Good advice Lucy, but on Glynis merely advice sadly wasted.

    Still, I disagree that Glynis has never contributed anything worthwhile to these forums. Okay, so she might have never offered any help whatsoever to other students, merely taking everything and giving nothing back, offering not even a polite "Thank you" most times (unless it's to Steve of course), but where would many of us be on Monday mornings without the eagerly awaited updates of her latest calamities or a new "FAO Steve" thread?

    Please go here before you annoy any more people and stop AAT members getting help and support from these forums by hounding the poeple that give it, i for one do not visit these much anymore as there are just endless threads about flipping ACCA....check the url address at the the top its the AAT.!!! Im sure people wouldnt mind now and again but you are a bit relentless.

    That's true, I have seen too many ACCA posts in this forum, ok about asking new providers or which units to take, but discussions about their exams I believe should be done in THEIR forum!

    But we like these forums :(

    And just think, when you're doing ACCA or whatever you have Steve to ask!

    Actually, if you took Glynises's ACCA posts away that would be 90% of them gone.

    And we like you still coming back - don't go!

    It's good that those who have gone on to ACCA (or CIMA) still visit us here as they are still willing to help and advise - surely it's better for us to have as much of that as we can.

    Maybe there should be an ACCA/ACA/CIMA forum as part of the Members section?

    I think there is a place for ACCA/ACA/CIMA posts on this website, but the AAT Technician/Diploma section isn't the right place.

    I don't really think ruling out students doing ACCA is correct. They are still qualified members of the AAT and as such they are just as welcome IMO (me included!).

    I think it is good the extra wealth of knowledge that is here, including knowledge of which ACCA courses are best taken when etc..

    Agree with Richard, perhaps there should be a 'further studies' section.

    Good idea, would be a good section to have!

    Yes I think so too, there seems to be a few of us here and our discussions can give current AAT students an idea of what further study is like without taking over 'their' section of the forums.

    completely agree with richard and ak, a "further studies" section would be fantastic, as i do think there is a wealth of info out there which we as aat students and beyond tap into. if we close the aat forums to just aat'ers then we lose a huge vat of knowledge.

    As much as the trolls are annoying with their endless moaning of "it's not fair" etc yawn - boring me now, i do believe we should not close the aat forum to not aat'ers

    Thanks Tracy, however me - and I assume most of the other ACCAers - are still AATers as well, just full members now rather than students. So I think we should still be able to use the forums, just have our own place in them.
