Well done to Xolile on his achievement for the March 2017 exam. We are proud of Xolile’s exam result.
We sat down with Xolile to gain further insight into his secrets of success:
What do you believe being an ACCA member will do for your career?
I believe membership to ACCA will give me access to a reputable professional body and access to credible material for CPD to keep my knowledge up to date in the competitive world of finance.
How do you find the time to study effectively while working full time (if applicable)
I prefer waking up early in the morning and putting in 1 to 1.5 hours of study before going to work, because it’s much tougher to study in the evenings after work.
How do you stay motivated?
I don’t believe in motivation as such, my philosophy is if you want something you get up and do it. Currently I stay motivated knowing that I have the opportunity to make it to membership in 2017.
What words of encouragement do you have for other students?
I would say focus more on questions and augment the areas where you lack theoretical knowledge by going back to your study text. Questions give you a platform to test your knowledge levels and to time yourself as well.
