Optional unit level 4

Hi there. I am thinking which optional unit is the most beneficial for me.
I am thinking to choose Business and Personal tax on level 4 studies.
Little bit about me: I am planning to study ACCA after AAT and I also have interest in Financial Risk Management. Thinking how to combine with my accounting knowledge.
Another thing: Is it possible to take exam for all optional units ? is it show on my final score ?
Thanks for the answers

    You can sit all optionals if you want to and the best 2 will count towards your final result.

    If you're going straight on to ACCA it's almost irrelevant what you do as they'll be covered again in the ACCA modules. I found the tax interesting and helpful immediately due to working in an accounting firm. If you are working in management then some of the other modules might be more immediately useful.

    You do not get any further exemption on the ACCA studies. The tax for example at ACCA covers more than the personal tax and business tax modules going into more detail on certain benefits and exemptions as well as how certain aspects work. Id imagine the same is true of the other overlapping modules.
