I need some information about ACCA.I have checked the acca site and i'm planning to go to uk in july to start my acca.But i am a little hesitant in opting to do ACCA as i have the option to do my bachelors in accounting and finance from some UK university.What i would like to know is would ACCA be a better option or a bachelors degree in accounting and finance?.I have completed my Alevels and have scored a Grade A at 95% in alevel accounting..that sort of forces me to go for ACCA but on the other hand i have heard people quitting in part 2 or 3 cuz it gets so tough.I little help on this would be greatly appreciated.

<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></font id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"><b>Everyone has different opinions, this one is mine. </b>

Definately ACCA will be a much better option. One plus will be the the BSC Degree(Applied Accounting) which you can take on completion of level 2.

To succeed...You need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you likewise judging by your percentage in Accounting of A lelvels it seems as if you have devoleped some interest in it, and do beleive me it will help you alot in ACCA .


Perhaps the single most important element in mastering the techniques and tactics is experience. But once you have the fundamentals, acquiring the experience is a matter of time.


And Here’s what it takes.

Sit in the front of the class. It’s the first step in getting the instructor to personally know you. You will be more attentive (especially if it’s a huge lecture hall), and you’ll take better notes.

Listen more than write. By listening intently and taking only a few notes as reminders, you’ll form the basis for expanding your notes later in the day.

See if the instructor will review your paper before the deadline. This is especially important if you’re not a good writer. Even if you are a good writer, this step will help you fine-tune your paper and let the instructor know you care about your academics.

Meet deadlines. They’re part of college and life. If you miss them, whether it’s a credit card deadline or enrollment cut-off date, it’ll cause difficulties that will ultimately impact your future.

Plan to study two to three times class time. It’s a simple but accurate equation If you have lecture or lab three hours a week, allow six to nine hours for studying for that class. This is why taking 15 semester hours is considered attending school full time [8D].

If you do poorly on a test, ask for a retake. Instructors generally understand that the first test of a class can be hard to study for. So if you blew an exam, show them you studied hard but just didn’t know what material to focus on. You’ve got nothing to lose by asking to retake the test.

If you must miss a class, ask what you will miss. This will show your instructors that you’re a sincerely ambitious student. It will also prevent you from having to rely on another student for the info.

Test out of classes. Opportunities abound for those who want to test out of certain requirements. Ask your college advisor about what tests your school recognizes for credit.

Schedule a break in the day. You’ll find that an hour or so break during the day is the perfect time to study, use the library or meet with your advisor.

Register as early as possible. A large part of your success depends on your time management skills. Registering as early as possible will help you control your days.

Switch at the beginning of the semester if a class is not right for you. There is nothing wrong with doing this—you are not giving up, you’re simply moving to a better class choice. Better to put your efforts into a class that fits you rather than struggle through a course that doesn’t.

Know the deadline for dropping classes without penalty. Students often get stuck in a class that’s wrong for them simply because they failed to note the drop deadline.

<b>Dont get discouraged because of people who dropped ACCA in middle.</b>

Everyone is different. Everyone has different experiences in their past to draw from so I think we need to grow as a collective to realize that our experiences are not carbon copied. Some of us may have left ACCA and others could have definately cleared it in 1st attempt, BUT some of us DON'T!! . Actually, I bet the feeling might change in different times of life. We have different expereinces and that is .fine., we shouldn't judge each other as having more valid or complete experiences by some checklist!.

Getting student visa is no hard I am also on student visa in UK. You have to follow theses steps to get the student visa.

1) Get admission at any UK institute as full time student.
2) Show them (embassy) proof of your accommodation in UK e.g. a hostel accommodation letter from your University etc.
3) Show them proof of your or your sponsored income
4) Show them proof that you can afford your education in UK without working e.g. bank statements and business or job documents etc.
5) Tell them that you would leave the UK after completion of your education.
