8 rules which you can apply to clear the ACCA DipIFR Exam
Having an ACCA DipIFR sends specific signals. People know that you have achieved a challenging goal—you have passed the ACCA DipIFR exam, one of the globe's most challenging certification examinations for accountants.
In the business world, the DipIFR qualification instils confidence and trust. Students with a DipIFR added as a qualification command higher salaries, are in greater demand in the workforce, and are given priority when it comes to promotions or when seeking jobs.
The Typical ACCA DipIFR candidate
Every time we register students for the DipIFR ACCA exam, the most common statement made by the candidates is: “I am not your typical IFRS candidate. Do I have a chance to pass?” The answer is always the same: “Yes, you can pass if you are willing to correct your weaknesses, remain focused, and at all times continue to believe in your abilities.”
In other words, the key to passing is not to be categorised as the “typical IFRS candidate.” The key to passing is the willingness to work toward your goal; there is no typical candidate. There is no magic age to sit for the exam. The youngest candidate who registered with us was a 21-year-old CA final student. The oldest candidate was a sixty-year-old teacher who sat for the exam with his daughter-in-law because she asked him to. We have also had a 44-year BCOM working in an outsourcing firm; he wanted to switch careers and move up the ladder. They all worked very hard, and they all passed on the first attempt. When it comes to the IFRS exam, being categorised as a “typical” candidate does not help you pass.
No matter who you are, you are the kind of person who, with hard work and dedication, can pass the DIPIFR exam.
