Costing & Ethics

Hi All :) how many study hours did you spend doing Costing unit and then the Ethics unit? trying to pre-plan exams ensuring I have enough time to gain all the knowledge. Thanks

    2 hours, 5 days a week, for 3 weeks to sit each level 3 and 4 paper.

    Weekends would generally be spent online searching for how X interacts with Y in a real life context - doing so helps you to retain the information.

    That's probably about what I've spent on all the other units with a few full days closer to exam. Are both units as bad as I've been reading, saved the worst until last!

    Honestly - no.

    I didn't mind spending a few weeks on ethics as it was a break from the calculator lol. In the exam make sure your answer is clear and to the point.

    But no, they are not difficult, you will be just fine.

    Where do your interests lay, financial or management accountancy?
