Rate the difficulty of the Advanced Diploma exams

I'm currently near the end of my advanced bookkeeping studies (Via on demand), i'll studying via Kaplan and am surprised how much content there is to go through for the Advanced bookkeeping, maybe its because of comparing it to the foundation level?

Anyways what would you say are the hardest-easiest exams in the advanced diploma level?

Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting - 30 Nov 18
Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting - 16 Oct 19
Level 4 Professional Diploma in Accounting - 22 Jul 21

    I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but personally for me Indirect tax was the hardest and Costing was the easiest.
    I believe this perception is different for everyone, however it will pay back if you focus more attention on Costing now, as management covers 2 units in the professional diploma

    My tutor at ICS said she thought Advanced Bookkeeping was the hardest Level 3 module, but it would vary for everyone I guess.
