Hi and thanks for all your answers. How did you find the corporate finance role that you're moving into?

Hey there,
I was wondering if you could provide some advice.I graduated with an accountancy degree recently so I'm on the job hunt although I have serious worries. I started looking at the content of ACCA exams that I qualify for an exemption in and I do t remember a lot of my course.I've started reading over notes from the begining of the course but there's so much I genuinely don't remember or the uni course didn't cover in great detail.I'm worried about getting a job and being incompetent because I can't remember so much. It's become a serious worry for meDo you have any advice

That was it really. Did sports and some other extra curricular stuff as well such as a small business.

Hey,

Don't worry about it. Most people that join the accountancy profession in the UK don't even have a degree in it. So you will be among people who have never done accounting or tax in their life! In the big 4, the counteract this by ensuring that you do the core tax and accounting exams from scratch, even if you qualify for an exemption.

I would suggest you take the core accounting exams you have exemptions for to relearn to content. However, as I said, do not worry about not knowing the content because your peers probably wouldn't have done accounting at all.
