1. South Africa, as a mere 22 year old democracy, is currently facing tough economic conditions, political turbulence and student unrest. Outline your views on the current university funding crisis under #FeesMustFall and come up with ways in which funding for tertiary education can be made available to students. Discuss your thoughts on whether such funding should apply to all or only selected categories of students.
2. Describe the role that SAICA (as a professional body), and other stakeholders outside of government, can play in upgrading South Africa’s economic status in order to avoid reaching junk status.
3. This was the second year of the APC (Assessment of Professional Competence) exam; yet as a profession, we still witnessed poor behaviour from certain candidates. What should have been done better by SAICA, candidates and the training officers to stop candidates from wanting to gain an unfair advantage? What parameters should be put into place to discourage ill practice from candidates?
