ACCA Performance Management (PM/F5) – Question Practice Sessions


Success in your ACCA exams is achieved by being able to apply technical knowledge to exam scenarios. Exam practice is therefore crucial and helps improve your exam technique. Our ‘Question Practice Sessions’ will provide you with the right tool to practice exam questions and succeed in your exam. Our Tutors help improve students’ performance by explaining complex topics, plotting where a student needs to practice and guiding them through those challenging areas.

During the ‘Question Practice Sessions’, we aim to:

  • Develop students’ exam technique by setting plenty of real past exam questions in class using the exam kit;
  • Debrief questions carefully so that we build confidence by showing the many easy and achievable marks in the questions.
  • The selection of questions which will be covered during these sessions ensure good coverage of all of the key topics so as to reassure students that they can pass the exam if they fully understand these topics and use good exam technique.
  • Limited number of seats available within lectures to ensure individual attention, a supportive environment which enhances the strengths and tackles students’ weaknesses and to encourage students to raise any queries during the sessions.

The Performance Management ‘Question Practice Sessions’ will cover:

  • Activity-Based costing
  • Throughput accounting
  • Relevant costing
  • Limiting factors & linear programming
  • Advanced Variance analysis
  • Transfer Pricing
  • Divisional performance management

Mock Exam

Students can now enrol for the Mock Exam which can better aid in learning how to apply knowledge to exam questions. Mock exams are attempted under exam conditions and corrected by our expert tutors. The corrected script is thereby returned to the student in order to establish the areas of a subject they mostly succeeded in and work on areas where improvement is needed.
