    Be patient tips for june 11 will be posted most probably before
    2 weeks of exam
    turcalo85:- It depends on route through which you have entered
    acca . IF you enter through MSER(mature route level) that is your age
    is 21+ and you are not graduate than you have to appear in f1 first
    followed by f2 . There is no problem as you will have to have a gap of
    atleast 48 hrs from the first and second exam
    If you came after minimum completion of A levels or CAT/FIA it is totally upon
    you of which paper you want to give . IN THIS CASE YOU CAN APPEAR FOR
    ALL 3 PAPERS EVEN IN A SINGLE DAY.
    BEST OF LUCK :-)
