The next exam that I will be taking is the ACCA F6 Taxation (UK) paper. I have not finalized a date for the exam, but I suspect that it will either be September 2018 or December 2018.
As with the previous papers, I’ve decided to highlight the resources that I will be utilizing for the exam. Past experience has taught me that my notes should be excellent enough that I can quickly refer to them at any time. And, they must also be thorough enough for anyone to follow. I’ve also learnt that past exam and practice questions are necessary if you want to pass any ACCA exam confidently.
I will be continuing on my self-study journey, because I know exactly what needs to be done. You should perform a strategic self-analysis that will provide you with a detailed look at your study ethic. If you are not disciplined, you should sign up for classes, so that you can benefit from a structured learning environment.
ACCA F6 Taxation is one of those papers that has several variants. I will be using the United Kingdom variant. Bear in mind that there are differences between paper versions, because they may use different examinable documents. Please ensure that you refer to ACCA’s examinable documents database for specific details about the variant that you will be taking.
