Need to do some ACCA retakes?
Failing one of your professional exams can feel like the end of the world, but is it really that bad? And more importantly... what do you do now?
Firstly, failing an exam doesn't make you a failure. Professional exams are designed to test you and as I tell my students if they were easy we wouldn't get paid so much for being a qualified accountant! The other thing I tell my students is that I failed an exam too. Yes, I failed a professional accounting exam when I was a student. And yet I still qualified (completing all my exams within two years while working full time), had a successful accountancy career and I am now am Head of ACCA Programmes at BPP Professional Education - not bad eh? How did I do it? Well I learnt from what went wrong, and used that knowledge to become better. The most important thing is to learn from the experience. I want to show you how you can do that too.
