SBL Study Tips:
1. Emphasize on the technique to answer the exam (very important for SBL)
2. Understand, not merely memorizing the concepts and facts
3. Focus in class (don’t play with phone too much)
4. Go out and have fun sometimes (good time management for work, study, social life etc)

PAY ATTENTION during the lecture and spend some time to do REVISION.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, 
besides doing the revision kit given in the lectures, I also practice extra questions from the other approved learning publisher books.

NEVER TRY NEVER KNOW.  When I have set a target, it motivates me to work hard to achieve it.

“I’m a firm believer that you get what you put in and never expect more unless you’re willing to contribute more. This applies to all situation but not to everyone.If you put 100% effort to memorise but understand nothing about the knowledge, it is a total waste of time as you do not know how to apply the knowledge.”

“At first, I was skeptical as I was told that studying accounts was only about numbers. However, after taking the first few foundation papers, I realised that ACCA was not all about figures but included other aspects such as taxation, audit and strategic planning.

Through this course, I have learned the true meaning of perseverance and hard work. There were countless times where I stumbled and fell but my God, family and friends were my driving force that led me to where I am today. Never lose hope and you’ll soon discover that the finish line is not far behind!”

“Being a little special as compared to normal scholarships, I was given a year to complete my Professional Level of ACCA before going over to BDO as an Audit Associate. On top of being offered a job, all my fees incurred during the final year of my studies were born by BDO. I had no need to worry over competition to secure a job later on nor tire myself out over working full-time while study part-time.”
