    Hello all,

    I was here briefly around this time last year looking for help regarding getting my foot in the door when it came to starting a career in finance/accountancy. So big thanks to those who helped out, I now have a stable job in a global company and I'm due to sit my first round of "proper" ACCA exams this June (F4 & F5).

    So my question/query is in relation to the BSc at Oxford Brookes that ACCA offer (which I'm opted in for). Someone at my place of work recently became fully qualified and I've posed this question to her too. Is the BSc something people have enjoyed doing and seen a positive result from having it on their CV? Or perhaps just the experience has been a positive one.

    I'm looking into this quite early on as it's something I'm considering doing and I want to do it properly, by which I mean get atleast a 2:1 . I have a 2:2 in Physics which I've been hiding away in the cupboard and I want to better myself since my first degree should of been a 1st or a 2:1 but as life goes certain events made me stumble and eat dirt on the final stretch :P

    Anyway to put it briefly: Does anyone have any helpful feedback regarding the RAP and the assesment overall? Did you put exams on hold and just focus on doing the project or did you do exams and the assesment? Perhaps someone could give a brief summary of their project? Company researched, did anything surprise you about it? What did you take away from it?

    Regards,

    Jason
