    Hey everyone!

    Today's unit 5 exam was difficult, I thought. Especially Question 9 (I think) about all of the ratios where it asked you to compare Rightbyte (was that the companies name?!) to a competitor. Should have revised more on that topic!

    I am on the Edexcel board, by the way.

    I was hoping and predicted an A for this unit, but after that exam, a B would be very welcome here!!

    How about you? Any thoughts??

    The Balance Sheet was a hard one. I couldn't see how I could balance it for a while, but then I saw that the wording was very sneaky and sly.

    You had to add on the £27k that they owed their suppliers to the £230k that was under the paid from business account section.

    However, it was the way it was worded that had me stumped for a while.

    Yeah, I had the same thing, couldn't balance it, but did the exam in like 60 mins, so had an entire hour spare to make it balance, which it did after I'd noticed the sneaky wording.

    I have seen worse papers - at least this thing didn't have one of those aged debtor analysis's on it - i can never do those!

    I was so annoyed that Age Debtor Analysis did not come up as I have been revising that section and had that covered!
