My second attempt at the F2: Advanced Financial Reporting paper resulted in my second failure. This time, though, it’s more demoralising than the first sitting!
I felt well prepared and felt confident when I finished the exam – so it was a blow to see the words “fail”on the provisional result at the exam centre. I’ll wait for the official result and scaled score to gauge how close or far away I was for a pass mark.
The main challenges in the exam today were choose three from the options below; if any area then this was the one I felt weaker today. The F2 Advanced Financial Reporting paper is a real tough – achieving the 70% pass mark, it seems, is a really BIG ask.
Which makes me wonder how I will fare further down the line?
I’m also pondering whether to shelve this subject for now and move on to E2 and P2?
It feels like I have been staring at this subject for so long no seems to be going in any more.
Anyway, for those preparing for CIMA objective tests you might want to watch this video below from CIMA on how to approach the exam.
