IS CAT DIFFICULT?
Large number of students agreed on the point that CAT is NOT very difficult and an average student is capable of doing it easily. However, when asked whether one should start it after matriculation or its equal counterpart o-level, majority was of the opinion that one should not jump into this with this much short academics.
ACCA VS. LOCAL DEGREES (B.COM, MBA)
ACCA is preferred, with big majority, over local degrees like MBA or B.Com. When asked why this is so, the answer was pretty straight forward: "Local degrees like B.Com proves no good to your carrier, rather wasting your time for 2 years, which is now 4 years, you are really at loss if you compare the time investment with ACCA which you can do with in 4.5 years including CAT". However most of the students want to do the MBA with their ACCA certification but only from selected institutes like Lahore School of Economics (LSE) or Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS).
SHOULD ONE DO CAT BEFORE DOING ACCA?
No clear decision came out on this. Respondents were found divided almost half and half on this. Some said its better to do CAT before ACCA but other were improvising on their opinion by saying why waste time on 5-9 papers when you can do the same in 3 papers with a bit over average effort.
ACCA VS. CA
In Pakistan ACCA is second only to CA, and to be very frank students of ACCA were found very "noisy" over this. At every point, at every opportunity CA keep its lead over ACCA. In order to put CAs to the test ACCA students have a new plan ACCA+MBA that really is AN idea. However some said that ACCA is a substitute to CA because of its global recognition and "easy to study" syllabus as compared to CA and in addition to that less time to complete the certification.
