    I thought the questions that came up on unit 2 (f012) were hard topics together, controll accounts, clubs and ratios. In the past there have been similar papers to this and the boundary for an A was 63%. Do people think this will be the case again

    Yes I took this exam today and I hate control accounts. I have two different teachers and the one is rubbish and he was the one who taught us control accounts. I didn't manage to do the reconciliation right. I thought the next two questions were fine. When I saw the last question was budgeting I panicked because I've has two lessons on it with the rubbish teacher and no one listened, but I think i managed to do it pretty well. My friend didn't even attempt the budgeting questions, it was 22 marks as well =/. I happy you said that about the grade boundary though, it makes me feel more confident.

    Yhhh I sat that paper and I got a B just, I didn't revise but looking back on it now they were all easy questions except the controll accounts. I think this one was much harder so hopefully it will be 80 odd/ 120 for an A. It was 93 for june 2009

    The mark scheme they always have low boundaries on are questions papers that have clubs, controll accounts, ratios and journals and we had three of them so hopefully its all gdd. I didn't like the controll a/c qu, everything else was ok :p:

    guys if your all doing AS dont panic

    im in second year and re taking this was a doddle
    litrally did 2 days revision an i think iv aced it.

    also little trick on the balancing..
    take lower figure from higher figure. if difference is small eg 600 ish, then check all the adjustments to see if youve missed one as a first port of call.

    Ah, same. I think I was approximately seven marks off an A for F012 last year and after checking the mark scheme, I think I would have picked those marks up if I had properly revised the Financed by section in the Balance Sheet of the Appropriation Account - kicking myself (but what's done is done). I was so happy that cash budgets came up - I hated them last year but because it's in the F014 module, I find them so much easier now. I just hope I did better than last time as I desperately need a good grade for university.

    Two topics came up again which appeared in the F012 exam last year when I sat them - Control Accounts and Ratios. I was in a similar position to you last year on budgeting since it had only recently been added into the specification. However in A2, you cover the cash budgets module properly in F014 which should make it a lot easier.

    Hate to dampen your hopes but iv since found out we could have lost a few marks.

    Due it being a 10% loan and only £1100 in loan interest. Even though there was no correct point (i) thing apprently it should be £1200 meaning the net profit is too high by £100 and then current liabilities is down by £100 therefore meaning it would still balance.

    or well nothing we can do now

    :\
    hmm...i was thinking about the mysterious £100 from the £1200
    since in the past papers it tells you that it was accrued, we should have been told that :s it just confuses us.
    well...i just followed what i learnt and put it as current liability either way lol
    whats done is done hehe..
    anyways.. hopefully we'll get most of the marks
