Anyway, I'm thinking of studying ACCA and would like some advice on where to start. I finished college in May 16' with a 2:1 degree in accounting and finance. Wasn't too sure what I wanted to do after that but ended up in an industry job working in accounts. Been there for a year now.
PER: I know I need to work 3 years in a relevant role, and I need a qualified accountant to sign off on my work. Another lad who works in accounts has completed ACCA. Can he sign off on my PER?
I'm exempt from the Fundamental level exams, so I can start at P1. I know there are several study options including self study and evening courses, but I'm working in Monaghan 2 days a week and Dundalk 3 days a week, 9.00am to 5.30pm. Realistically, are evening courses in Dublin achievable? Or would self study be a valid option?
I don't mind giving up some weekends to study but would prefer to keep most free so I can spend some time with friends too. Is this possible? From what people say ACCA is very hard, and it seems like it will consume all my time for the next 3 years or however long it takes. Is this true?
Thanks in advance.
