CURRENCY FLUCTUATION AND ACCA STUDENTS FACING ISSUES: WAYS TO COPE
BY ABDUL SAMAD
The subject is one that most of us are concerned about: ACCA fees and currency fluctuations, stressing out not only a middle-class student but the entire nation. We are all in the same situation, especially those who are pursuing a foreign qualification like an ACCA, however, I’d want to provide some real advice that I believe could help students deal with the circumstance. All of these call for work and pushing yourself outside your comfort zone, but they will undoubtedly aid in situation adaptation.
I want to start by saying that if you find yourself in a scenario where you can pay the fee but are unable to do so because it is too much at once, then you should look into this alternative, It is advised to choose the part-payment option, it is more appropriate for individuals who are registering for June attempt because the remaining dues of Annual Subscription should be paid before 31st march, so those who will register for June attempt will undoubtedly gain from this since they will have plenty of time to pay their fees, but they can also anticipate a short-term stabilization of the economy within the following three to four months if they didn’t take an exam in March and want to do it in June. Second, everyone who finds that paying the fees completely burdens their family should hunt for employment—whether it be a job that requires them to work from home or an office. If it involves office work, students should look for opportunities at their educational institution or in those accounting businesses that do not have tight requirements for hiring trainees.
This will undoubtedly assist the student in receiving some sort of stipend, which they can utilize to pay their exam expenses each quarter. Otherwise, if they want to work from home, they should enrol as soon as possible in taxation and AA exams, which will enable them to complete freelance work for clients in other countries using various online platforms for freelancing. They can use this to improve their suitability. Even while this employment may end up being unsteady, it will undoubtedly pay off more than any physical job at a company.
I’m hoping that students who are currently in the skill module would realize the advantages of earning a little money for themselves in order to properly maintain their exam finances instead of burdening their families.
