Nicholas Thami Tshilani, Top Achiever June 2017

Nicholas is one of the students who did exceptionally well in the June Exam, particularly with F7. We had a chat with Nicholas and this is what he had to say;

What do you believe being an ACCA member will do for your career?

ACCA will definitely open doors which were previously closed for me. Having such a prestigious qualification will accelerate me to even more greater heights. I get very excited when I think of all the possibilities.

How do you find the time to study effectively while working full time?

You need to have complete commitment if you want to achieve good results through ACCA, with no procrastinating , just go at it at full speed. Plan your weekdays, arrive at work early or leave late and use that time wisely. Just tell yourself that, you have no weekends and it must be study, study. Ask a lot questions, it really works and do a lot of past exam papers and be disciplined as you doing it.

How do you stay motivated?

Just keep the end results in mind…ACCA qualification. I knew from the beginning that I just needed to push myself to the limit and I took enough modules to keep myself very busy and motivated.

What words of encouragement do you have for other students?

If you can, attend classes and prepare for these lecturers and asks questions, there is no stupid question. Participate on whatsApp group chats, there is so much help out there, there is absolutely no reason to suffer alone. Believe in your abilities and know that it is just a matter of time and the qualification will be yours. If you work hard, the pastures of success await you, and things sometimes just become a bit easier with some hard work.
