    I'm sure you'll need FA10 books for exams in March. Can someone correct me if I'm wrong please :)

    According to my tutor FA11 won't come into play for exams until after the end of the current tax year

    On the sheet I have from Osborne it says FA2011 is assessable from 1st March 2012. Depends how certain you are on the March sitting if it's doubtful and there's a chance it could be delayed by a couple of months then you might be better off doing FA2011. But if it's certain then do FA2010

    Morning Coojee

    He defo said the PTX BTX exams would be March - so what happens if we work from FA2010 and dont pass or end up having to sit the cbe later than March - will I have to do the class again - is it just the figures that change? not sure how it works.
    Thanks. :)

    Anniebabe, it will just be the figures that change. I've seen a couple of the FA09 books and they are almost identical to the FA10 books
