The exams are nearly over, and for most people, this period is ‘time away from the books’, while awaiting results. Let me remind you that the ACCA qualification is not just about the exams.
The period in between writing exams and getting exam results may be ideal for looking into updating PER records, and planning/achieving Performance Objectives. The advantage of planning towards the other aspects of the ACCA qualification, which are equally as important as the exams is that you can quickly transit into membership, after completing the exams.
I get a number of emails from students who are stuck at the affiliate stage after completing the required 14 exams, but had no idea about PER and Performance Objectives. The ACCA website has a wealth of information on PER, and achieving the necessary practical experience for students, whether they be employed or not.
*This post is not about completing PER only after exams (they can be done at anytime), but to highlight that with proper planning, completing some Performance Objective between now and August is realistic and achievable.
