    As I used to say to students when I used to teach the old DFS paper - you must learn all the examinable ones! Do not just learn the "main" ones especially with the new FNST and its apparent "unpredictability" which seems to be catching a lot of students out. Err on the side of caution and get a sound understanding of them all.

    Again with the IFRSs/IASs, learn the main content of each one that is examinable (note, not all of them are examinable). Spending, say, a day practising questions wholly on accounting standards (though not at the detriment of the rest of the syllabus) is a good way of getting a sound grasp of what each standard says. Also, refer to the syllabus and see the ways in which each IAS/IFRS can be tested (not all of them require numeric calculations/discussion).

    Kind regards
