Job vs Full-time study

Hello Sam,

Thanks for reading the blog.

From your email, I get that you feel that because you have spent quite a bit of time completing F1-F6, you need to back to studying full-time to make up for this. Both of the options you gave (either lose the job and study here or go back to my Homeland and study in an regular institute)indicate this.

I’d like you to look at the larger picture, in terms of your job, finances, and your life in general. Is your current job an accounting role? If it is, then it can count towards your practical experience requirement (PER) & Performance Objectives, which is part of total ACCA qualification (please read the post on Completing the ACCA Qualification).

You should also consider your finances. If you quit your job, do you have an alternative source of finance for your exams?
I understand that right now, it seems that going full-time will make up for lost time, but each person’s situation is unique.  Before you resign, please have a look at the PER page. if your job role can count towards the Performance Objectives and PER, then you are not as far behind as you think.

I shall post this online as well, so others can learn. Thanks for reading my blog, and please leave a comment.
