    I've found studying for the ACA stressful so far but have got first time passes in exams up to this point.

    Now I'm thinking of the future: after I qualify I want a relatively stress free job, where I imagineI'd be doing similar things each day i.e. monthly journal postings, reconciliations etc.

    If I wanted a fairly mechanical job like this would I be over qualified if I had my ACA?

    Fellow ACA qualified people, or those who know such people, what jobs have you gone on to do? How stressful are your jobs?

    The ACA is really prestigious, well done on your first time passes so far. Im looking to join an apprenticeship, where the firm provides the tuition and covers the fees for the ACA. Maybe you should apply to such a firm where they are looking for qualified chartered accountants, theirs loads of them who would be glad to have a qualified chartered accountant. About the ACA itself, how difficult has it been so far? How much of your time do you dedicate per day/week studying for it, and how long does each module take to learn?

    Try getting some experience in the banking sector coverage team if there is one and then once you qualify try to move into product control at a bank, very 9-5, very mechanical, makes audit look exciting... also pays much better than audit
