I have failed FR by a few marks only and was thinking of repeating it while combining it with another subject since I already know FR and need not study it again as I did last semester.2019-06-18T23:58:04+10:00

FR is the toughest subject to pass in the CPA program.  It, therefore, requires the most amount of time to study.   Please call our PDL Support Staff for advice on this matter as it requires a more comprehensive discussion.

I am planning to do two subjects this semester, what would be the best combination of subjects I should enrol for?2016-12-09T16:23:20+10:00

The combination you choose depends on several factors like:

  1. The amount of time you have available to study.
  2. Your other priorities as studying for two subjects is a challenge particularly if you are working full-time and have other personal commitments.
  3. If you are combining with an Elective, the relevance of the Elective to your daily work and career aspirations
  4. There is no ideal combination of subjects you can choose to take, but our experience has shown that combining FR and SMA has been the most challenging combination for students
