Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew what the best (nicest/easiest) exam would be to take as a first exam after AAT?

Thanks

Steph

    Maybe some sort of art course?

    Ah ACCA :D Try by just doing one exam, obviously one of the early ones, which hopefully AAT will help you lead onto.

    It depends what the last AAT one is that you did, if you did DFS then I would follow it up with F7, if you did a tax paper then I would do F6 (hoping I've remembered the number of those papers properly but you get the idea)

    I took F6 and F5 first, F6 followed on very well from Personal and Business Tax and F5 followed on well from PEV and PCR (as they were then - the costing papers).

    Yeah I thought doing F6 the tax paper would be a Good one to start with as my exams have/will run in this order

    Budgeting
    Financial Performance
    Personal Tax
    Business Tax
    Financial Statements

    But have been told not to sit the tax exam in a dec sitting in case I need to resist as I would resist in a different tax year. I have also been told that it may be an idea to take them in order? I am quite on concerned with this as I know F4 is financial and business law which I have been told is all theory (which I hate) and I would like to start the ACCA with a pass to keep me going.

    Thanks

    I can't imagine a different tax year would be that difficult to tackle if you know the basic principles.

    That's right a resit in June would be for a different tax year, but as has already been pointed out the basic priniciples will still be the same, and hopefully it wouldn't come to that anyway!

    A few people in my F4 class were starting with that paper and taking them in order, but yes it is all theory and a completely written exam. It wasn't my favourite, I wouldn't advise starting there. Like you said, it's a good idea to start with a paper you feel confident on.

    Good luck!
