    ACCA F9
    Key Examinable Areas
    for June 2013
    NOTE: These should only be used in conjunction with proper studying.
    We cannot guarantee that these topics will appear in the actual exam as we have not seen the exam papers. Examiners are
    not predictable so it is vital that all core syllabus areas are revised fully. The tips are based on Kaplan’s experience and
    understanding of the ACCA exams and will help focus your last minute revision.
    Please also read all the Examiner’s Articles – available on the ACCA Global website
    The F9 Examiner has repeatedly stated that he will test across the whole syllabus.
    Investment appraisal
    This is a key topic which is highly likely to be examined every time. The most common technique
    assessed is NPV with inflation and taxation although be prepared for a twist, possibly involving some
    of the more basic methods of the applications of NPV such as replacement analysis or lease v buy. It
    is also worth bearing in mind that IRR has not been tested for three years so may pop up in some
    form.
    Working Capital Management
    Another key topic which is likely to examined every time. Exams to date have covered much of this
    topic but it’s been a while since we’ve seen the more numerical aspects surrounding cash
    management. A discussion about funding strategies is a key discursive element.
    Valuations
    This has been examined in virtually every F9 exam to date. Cash flow based values have yet to be
    examined although the PE ratio and dividend valuation methods still appear to be the more
    examinable areas. There are often high scoring discursive elements in this area of the syllabus for
    being able to discuss the implications of something on the value of the business or perhaps the
    relative methods of the valuation methods.
    Kaplan Financial June 2013
    Business Finance
    This topic has been heavily examined recently and in particular the impact of financing on ratios is an
    area the examiner likes. Make sure you’re able to discuss the impact that different policies may
    have on a company by being able to both calculate and interpret financial ratios.
    Cost of Capital
    This topic features in virtually every exam to a greater or lesser extent. Good coverage of all of the
    syllabus areas is therefore essential to ensure you can handle any eventuality on the day.
    Candidates should feel confident when calculating the overall cost of capital (WACC) and going on to
    discuss the impact of the cost of capital on investments. It’s been a while since we’ve seen CAPM
    based calculations.
    Risk Management
    Within this section of the syllabus, foreign exchange risk has been examined more often than
    interest rate risk. However, both are fairly under-examined areas of the syllabus as a whole and so
    this is a topic worth being on top of.
    The Financial Management Function and the impact of the economic
    environment upon it
    We can probably expect one specific topic from these syllabus areas to feature as a tag on discursive
    element within one question on the exam. This part of the question can provide some easier
    knowledge-based marks and therefore is worth some focus.
