    do you have any idea what is going to come?
    any tips on what to study?
    I think its hard to predict what will come up for accounting if I am honest. Just try to revise everything and the stuff you know just read over. I think there may be control a/c's but nobody can be sure. For me I am writing out templates of how each a/c looks like and little definitions or theory stuff on the same page. Go through some pass papers to give you a feel and then check the answers to see if you would have got the same and if you did, then move onto something else. Hope this helps and good luck for the exam. Don't stress just accept what is on the paper and try your best!

    Which things aren't covered in the spec? I am finding it ok. Freaking out about limited companies but the rest i know pretty well. I know all the formulas but haven't bothered learning about the computerised systems only the adv and disad of them. Yeah, the paper for January was a lot easier and so many Q's were just ticking boxes and only 40 marks were for doing the a/c's. what are your main specialties at accounting? Only 5 days aaaaahhhhh Btw, which country are you taking the exam in? The UK? Are you doing other edexcel IGCSE's
    hmmm lets see.....
    1.2 d)journal entry for unusual losses
    3.13 )show changes in the proprietor’s capital as the result of the revaluation of fixed assets

    ya even my balance sheet was balancing!!! everyone else was like 30 000 still missing but later found out proposed dividend was missing
    i think you were supposed to deduct discount from all of the sales and returns....it was clearly written in the question tht he gives all of his customers 25% discount

    also am i the only who thought that the space provided was less?

    the gross profit was on the credit side
    capital was on the credit side
    the rest was like the normal accounting
    like bank- debit
    cash- debit
    creditors- credit
    debtors- debit and all that..
    actually the figure i got for the trial balance was 49 thousand and something..not the balance sheet
    i dont actually remember what i got for the balance sheet

    Sounds like we got the same then. Did you add the selling expenses to the indirect/factory overheads section in the manufacturing a/c or not. ??
