      Stay away from the final accounts. They make your course longer, they are very complicated and they take up too much time. Focus on the rest of the course.

      I wouldnt recommend that choice to be honest..if u learn question 1 then u dont have to learn extra short questions... Q1 is guaranteed and only 3 types can come never know what can come up n q2,3 or 4...after that u can focus on your section 2...which means Q5 which is guaranteed also, and then u have a choice betwen 6 or 7 which are usually easy questions such as service firms or Suspense Accounts..In section 3 q9 is always going to be a budget with 3 types also and they are simple enough.

      If you wount learn Q1 you have to learn extra short questions and the ones u learn might not even come up also with Q1 if you learn sole trader they are all very alike just a few different adjustment.

      Anyways that what im doing with my teacher just a little advice..Good Luck:)

      You have only 50mins to complete final accounts. And many students struggle to complete it in that amount of time.

      But suppose you got a depreciation, which takes 25mins and control, which, if you can get the hang of, take 15 mins, that means you have extra time for the rest of the paper.

      And plus every 60 mark question comes up as a 100 mark question, but final a/c knowledge is used no where else in the paper, thus adding onto the list of topics to be covered.
