    Accountancy is more than just numbers. The written questions are more around testing theory so a human marked which is why it takes 6 weeks to get the results. There a a load of ethics seminars at the moment from the local branches which you get a lot from what a accountant really is.

    Use your common sence, and write down all you know. Then you can hope for the best. Good Luck!

    @LWOODSAATQB Accountancy is not just numbers but can also be more strategic. Level 4 deals with Management Accountancy which can include providing reports to managers, both written and verbal. For this you will need communication skills as well as numerical skills.
