New ACCA PAPER & THINGS Special...

The ACCA qualification changed in SEPTEMBER 2018 

The big news is a new paper replacing P1 and P3


The 3 Levels will have new names

  • Applied Knowledge (Old F1 - F3)

  • Applied Skills (Old F4 - F9)

  • Strategic Professional (Old P1 - P7)


Strategic Professional Level

Will have just 2 mandatory papers:

  1. Strategic Business Reporting

  2. Strategic Business leader


1) Strategic Business Leader

A combination of P1 and P3 to an extent - but more to it than that

4 hours long - 1 hour reading time

Realistic case study involving a modern business where decisions need to be made, measured and effectively communicated


2) Strategic Business Reporting

A bit wider than P2 - testing the vital skills needed to explain and communicate the implications of transactions and reporting.
