′′ In comparison to the SBR paper which focuses on corporate external financial reporting, APM is an exam that tests the candidate’s analytical skills in solving the internal problems of an organization,” she said.

Looi also shared the secret of her achievements. “Besides revising, I also got myself familiar with all the past-year questions.”

“Determination and persistence is considered to be of utmost importance for ACCA candidates.”
