What is the RAP Resubmission process?
If you have failed your RAP, ensure you familiarise yourself with the resubmission process. The process itself is not difficult or complicated, but there are certain points that I would like to highlight to you in this article.
• All students have three attempts to pass their RAP. If you do not pass after a third submission, then, unfortunately, you will no longer be eligible to complete the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting degree and you will not be able to resubmit.
• You must resubmit within the 10 year eligibility period for the BSc (Hons) Applied Accounting.
• You are NOT required to resubmit at the next submission period. Students often find benefit from taking the time to consider what went wrong.
• Anonymous marking is adopted, so please identify yourself in any documentation using only your ACCA number and not your name.
• Resubmissions will always require at least the full project Fee to be paid. Students who have been found guilty under the Academic Conduct procedures may be asked to pay a higher fee for resubmission.
Resubmission of the Research Report (RR)
You can choose either to keep the same project title or choose another topic title from the twenty approved project topic areas. If you decide to change the company you are researching and analysing or the topic then the Research Report passes previously achieved will not be carried forward.
When resubmitting your RAP you must include the RAP Resubmission Statement of 500 words (unless you have changed your topic/organisation), explaining how you have addressed the feedback provided by the marker and moderator and where you have made changes.
Resubmission of the Skills and Learning Statement (SLS)
If you passed the SLS in full (both the Learning Statement and Presentation), you don’t have to submit them again. However, if you have failed one part, that part must be resubmitted.
If you are resubmitting your RAP and changing either the topic or an organisation and have not previously passed both parts of the SLS, then the whole SLS – Reflection and Presentation – must be resubmitted.If you passed your SLS, you don’t have to have mentor meetings again. However, you may find it useful to meet with your mentor if:
a) You decide to submit a different Research Report and/or
b) You generally feel that you need help from your mentor.
You do not have to use the same mentor for a resubmission. If you failed your SLS, you don’t need to have three further meetings with your mentor but you must meet them at least once. This will help you re-consider where you went wrong in your SLS.
