6. Variance analysis

Budgeted - Actual = variance

Budgeted = 117700 profit

Actual = -36800 profit

117700 F - 36800 A = 80900 Adverse

The profit for that year was £80900 less than the budgeted amount of 117700

You add all the F's and subtract the A's to get the variance, the use of negative numbers is confusing!

This is how I answered the question, please can someone tell me where I went wrong

Ah no it is wrong,

If they made -£36000 profit

and they budgeted £117000

then £36000 would be needed to get to £0 profit

and then a further £117000 to get to the budgeted.

36000+117000=153000A
9. if they budgeted 117000 and achieved 36000 then the variance would be 80000 adverse because it was lower than expected?

They didn't achieve 36000 profit, they made a loss of 36000. You got a negative figure when you worked out the actual profit, but it wasn't a profit it was a loss

Yeah spot on. The mistake most people made was thinking the firm was making a profit whereas they were actually making a loss. So therefore the budgeted figure minus that loss should give you 153/154 (000s) something adverse profit variance
12. No you have done budget-actual, it is budget-- (minus, minus) actual which is a plus. So technically you're saying they have an actual of 36 or whatever it is, not -36. The difference between the actual and the budget is 154500 adverse

I knew they made a loss but I didnt think of looking at the figures properly to see if it made sense lol. ah well hopefully done better on the other questions!

Yeah i got that too!

it was wrong though :/ i reckon we'll get 4/6
15. Guys how do everyone think about their exam? Anyone know about the grade boundaries? For me, I don't think I did good on this one. So many messed up answer I wrote. feel really bad!

16. I'm pretty sure it was 154,500
The real profit was like -30,000 or something so they made a loss and they budget to make around 120,000 so the variance was (154,500)
I'm pretty sure this was correct, quite tricky for a calculation question!

In my opinion I reckon around the 50's for an A, the paper felt average, not the best, hence why the case study lacked detail in question 2.

Yes, and then wrote that it could decrease quality if production is rushed however..
I also put that, as the employees would focus on the amount of products made rather than the quality of them
