    Hi all,

    I am currently applying for various graduate programmes, in Assurance, for 2011. Couldn't decide whether to go for the ACCA or ACA, so I decided to some research.

    Having briefly glanced over the previous ACCA papers (http://www.accaglobal.com/documents/pilotpapers.pdf), I am amazed at how difficult I found the questions. I could barely comprehend, let alone work out the answers to any the questions.:confused:

    Will the material get easier as I progress, or am I expected to understand the content of the papers from the outset? If you've previously studied (or studying) for the ACCA, did you have a similar reaction when you first saw these papers?

    By the way, I don't have an accountancy degree...

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Best,

    Humpasaurus.

    If you don't have any accountancy experience or A-level then I'm not surprised, it's hardly general knowledge stuff. Get on some courses and it'll be fine.

    Surely this is the same with all exams though? I tend to look at the sample exam papers at the beginning of every uni semester and have no idea whats going on. Once I've been to the lectures, done the tutorials, revised - I feel fine about it! I'm sure its the same with ACCA if you don't have an accounting background.
