Did the test. Pretty easy. Not much of use unless you plan to go into forensic accounting or AML work

It is just a marketing tool for your firm, no use to you in terms of career development.

Whats AML work?

Yeah, you will rarely do any AML work if you are in Audit. It's more of financial services, advisory or data analytics related

I do, test wasn't bad. I'm now in forensic accounting

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
