London, 26 October 2017 - Zain Munir A. Malik, an online student at London School of Business and Finance, has been commended by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) for being one of the top achievers in this September’s P6 Advanced UK Taxation paper.
Mr Malik is a senior auditor at Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu’s office in Jeddah. He has been working with the Big Four firm since 2013, starting as an assistant auditor and working his way up to his current role.
His story of career progression with Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu goes hand-in-hand with his learning relationship with LSBF.
“Two years ago I studied for a few papers with LSBF, and I was very happy with the result,” he said. “Later I managed to pass P2, P3, and P7 by self-studying, but then I decided to go back to LSBF for P6, as Advanced UK Taxation was a new subject for me.”
Studying throughout June to take the September sitting, Mr Malik opted for the LSBF Online ACCA Live Tuition & Live Revision package as he recognised the importance of having tutorial support for such a challenging professional paper.
LSBF’s ACCA Online Courses are designed specifically to suit the various requirements of distance learners like Mr Malik, who is originally from Pakistan and currently living in Saudi Arabia.
“I truly enjoyed studying with LSBF,” he explained. “The lecturers, videos, and study material thoroughly covered the whole syllabus of P6, and I am sure that without LSBF I could have not cleared this paper at the first attempt.
“The Mock paper helped me in finding out what my weaknesses were, and the feedback the lecturers gave me about it allowed me to focus on the points that I needed to pass.”
Mr Malik was rewarded for his efforts with a mark of 62 on P6 and a special mention from ACCA. “I am very happy for this recognition,” he said. “Many students don’t pass the P6 the first time and it is a great feeling for me to have been able to do so, especially while working full time.”
LSBF works with Edology and a number of highly regarded universities and academic institutions to provide fully accredited, globally recognised online degree programmes and professional qualifications.
