    The unit 2 paper wasn't so much difficult as it was sneaky. I've done about 5 years worth of past papers and I have never ever ever seen layouts like I saw today. It has a stupid amount of written marks though (25 I believe?) And I was banking on a full income statement or balance sheet but nope. And that 21 (or was it 23?) mark table question was vile.
    It wasn't the stuff was difficult. Just laid out and examined in an odd way. There were few areas where layout got you marks. Usually just putting figures in the right place grabs you a few marks. But nope. Not in this exam! No easy marks. Heck. Even the ticky box question was mean! Usually you'd get at least 2 or 3 marks for giving the formula and working the ratio out. But no. You got 1 for each thing you worked out. Thanks aqa!

    I'm pretty sure my college is filing a complaint to AQA about it, so if you are dissatisfied then it would be more beneficial if more people complained as numbers speak volumes

    how do u complain
    Go to your teacher and say about you want to complain, and then they will either dismiss it or take it further

    If they dismiss it, just complain to AQA yourself through writing. All of the list of contacts and how to complain etc are on their website

    I tutor undergraduate Accounting students, specializing in Financial Accounting 1 and 2, and Intermediate Accounting 1 and 2. On a case-by-case basis, I tutor upper-level accounting courses. I also teach in group settings at discounted rates.For one-on-one sessions, I offer completely individualized tutoring - according to to my student's strengths and weaknesses. You'll find that I have a unique ability to assess your knowledge gaps and develop ways to close those gaps. Reach out for help. '

    I often find that students are not afraid to talk to me, but they won’t talk to their instructors for help. But you should! Instructors are there to help not just with topics, but they can help you if you have questions about how to find information you need for the class (where’s it’s located in ANGEL or if you’re seeking additional information on the topic).

    “I am willing to teach but you must be willing and ready to learn.” If you reach out to ask for help, it shows me (and other instructors) that you want to learn!
