i didnt said "AFF doesn't select candidates with papers left" i said after being selected in to pwc he will have 2-3 attempts to clear those paper else the will let him go (happened to a friend of mine)
moreover he is FTS-9 this attempts pwc's criteria for eligibility is
FTS 11 - 13 for those with CAF 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 passed
FTS 7 to 10 for those with whole level 2 passed
(source= https://www.facebook.com/alhamd.edu...82486922219/10153990171107220/?type=1&theater)

if he is awaiting result for 1 paper
he cannot apply this attempt (doesn't meet the criteria)
if he passes now (inshallah) the next induction requirement for pwc with level 2 cleared will be FTS 8 to 11 and after that FTS 9 to 12; so he can apply in the next two attempts

if he will give paper in this attempt (ie sep 2016) then his only option is to clear it and aim for the march 2017 induction of pwc (ie CAF cleared FTS 9 to 12 one)

hope i was clear on my perspective and if i am wrong about something do let me know :)


Thanks for information bro! :)
Actually I am going to appear in that exam in sep so I guess I'll be eligible for induction after that.
FTS 9 makes me feel bazurg in CA, really feeling guilty about taking this much time (8 attempts) for CAF :(
Actually stepped in this field without having any knowledge and guidance about it even I didn't knew about ICAP and Audit firms when I was in mod A :D

btw if you have time (i mean since you are only studying one subject) and you think it will be possible for you to focus on your studies side by side you can try learning a language (arabic, afghani, german and etc) because if you know a foreign language thats helpful for your employer you significantly increase your chances in big four i know a guy from FTS 7 (ish) who got in to EY in this attempt because he can speak afghani and another friend of mine previously was able to make into big four while from a lower FTS because he was fluent in arabic

EY has a lot of clients in Afghanistan thatswhy they may have hired him :D they even hire some trainees for Afghanistan office only.

I think I lost it at ICAP house.....:D
So I'll just go there and ask if they have the original or otherwise just get the duplicate.......
Yeah it might be possible that they have it with them because in case a card gets lost it is instructed to be returned to ICAP. But you can also apply for a new one.

Hi,

I've passed AFC and will be appearing in the March 2017 attempt for CAF 1,2,3 and 4. If anyone could help me out here in the selection of the institute, I'd be grateful. Listed below are links the FB pages of RAET's that I've shortlisted. Just take some minutes out and guide me as to which of these has the best faculty for CAF. Waiting for an earlier response, thanks!

I'm speaking for CA, ACCA isn't much different also.
It's not difficult, if you do normal study daily you will not have any problem. I , for example only start serious study 1 month before exams while do almost nothing in the rest of the months ;)

What are the benefits of doing ACCA along with CA. I'm planning to give ACCA papers too before the articles so that the articleship period counts for both and at the end I have membership of both bodies. What are the pros and cons of this? Time and money are not an issue

CA article ship periods counts after ca intermediate or you can say caf level papers
ACCA time period count irrespective of how many acca papers left , they have PER requirement read on acca site (as far as i know)
ca articlship timer period also count even if you are not intermediate ca ... how ? registration with firm on basis of b.com
