Past exam papers were a gist of the course when I was studying for my professional examinations. The papers and corresponding examiners’ comments were bound into booklets, which were quite popular. The professional body must have been making roaring business out of them. Besides the possibility of “spotting” the likely examination questions, the papers helped us discern the mind of the examiner, as it were. Furthermore, some of the examiners’ comments made exhilarating reading.
Talking about excitement, here is one such snippet. The question was: “You are the Secretary of a public company. You have been informed that the company is going to go into voluntary liquidation. What steps do you take?” (20 marks). According to the examiner, one candidate submitted the following answer: “I update my CV and start looking for another job”. I would have loved to get 20 marks out of this cute answer!
Still in this fun mood, I wish to thank those college and professional students in Forensic Accounting and related disciplines who have approached me online (and offline) with requests for examination preparations. Besides earning me a little income, the questions have had the effect of keeping me sharp and up-to-date on my professional career. Consequently, any prospective examination candidate in the following areas of my expertise can contact me for advice and assistance:
Financial and Management Accounting
Business and Transaction Advisory Services
Project and General Management
Company Secretarial/Administration Services
Due diligence Investigation
Fraud Investigation, Detection and Prevention programmes
