Support for CTA FinAcc IFRS
Financial Accounting is a favourite subject among many CTA students, and often, a lot of time is spent on this subject. That’s partly because it feels more relevant (people equate CAs with accounting foremost) since the standards make it easier with the rules and formats one can use. And of course it’s all about the numbers – which we love, right?
Well, that’s where we come in. Financial Accounting and Reporting are actually NOT about rules and formats. It’s all based on concepts and principles. It’s a huge syllabus with an overwhelming number of resources that are given to you. You will be required to answer conceptual and principle-based discussion questions on applying the theory of Accounting, and not just do some number-crunching.
The biggest challenge you’re going to face is time. You have limited time available to you, and you cannot work through every single resource and learn a set of rules. Our presenters have dedicated the course preparation to finding the BEST and most time-efficient way for you to get through the IFRS material, by spending more time on the concepts and principles that need the most of your attention, and less time on those that aren’t as critical.
We teach you to UNDERSTAND the concepts and the principles of the Conceptual Framework, IFRS and IAS, so that you don’t need to spend your time learning a million different “rules”. It’s a faster, more effective way of being able to DO Accounting (which is what counts in the exam - right?). We help you to be more selective about what you spend your time on, and the quality (and return on investment regarding marks) that you get out of that time you spend.
Note that we also have CTA Gold and Platinum Programmes which include this subject. If you are considering getting support in multiple subjects the programmes could save you money. See here for more information.
Online Videos & Notes
Our lecturers are great at simplifying concepts, with our videos explaining your work with the focus on your exam outcomes, and walking you through your exam technique. Our lecturers and presenters have lectured Auditing at CTA level for years, so they’re perfectly placed to help you get through CTA successfully.
We realise that students struggle with some topics from their undergraduate studies (like Risk assessment and Audit Planning!), so we’ve added revision content as well. The beauty is that you get to control what you revise, and what you don’t. You can go back if you need to, or stick to the CTA content if that’s all you need.
Test & Exam Technique Videos
We also walk you through how to do exam-type questions and past papers. Our videos will help you with your communication skills and planning of answers, to ensure you’re totally prepared for your tests and exams.
Our lecturers are available on our discussion forums to answer your queries and motivate you, and yes check up on you too!
We’ll show you how to tag, highlight and use those open books to your advantage. This is a great skill, and for Auditing, real marks are hiding in those standards. We’re going to show you how to get them!
