ACCA EXAM TIPS P5 ADVANCED PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT – DECEMBER 2012 Posted by Davinia McGann in Accountancy & Tax, 01.11.2012 As Head of ACCA Programmes here at BPP, I have asked my expert subject managers for ACCA Exam Tips for your forthcoming December 2012 exams. Here is what Doug Haste, our ACCA P5 Advanced Performance Management Subject Manager had to say: “Section A (50-70 marks in total) will contain two compulsory questions; each question will be allocated between 25 and 40 marks. The style of recent exam papers has been that question 1 in the exam has required a high level of data analysis using numerical techniques e.g. ROCE, RI and EVA. Question 2, in recent sittings, has often asked for the application of a performance management framework such as the balanced scorecard, the building blocks model, the performance pyramid and the performance prism. The balanced scorecard and the buildings blocks model are due to be tested. In section B (30-50 marks in total) you will need to choose two questions from a choice of three. Each question will be worth between 15 and 25 marks. Commonly tested areas include quality management, benchmarking (in both a private & a public sector context), the application of strategic models (such as PEST, Porter’s 5 forces and the BCG matrix), corporate failure models and transfer pricing.” MORE ACCA EXAM TIPS
