    Anyone have any tips for the Accounting AS Unit 2 exam on Friday 20th May 2016? ACCN1 today was ever so hard and the questions were quite different to the past papers of the previous few years....

    SO glad someone else thought the questions were massively different to previous years! I've done loads of past papers in preparation for Unit 1, got into the exam today and felt like I was sitting a completely different exam board! Really disappointing!

    4 control accounts has never come up in a past paper before. They could at least have warned us before hand that theyre changing the exam format. Did 6 past papers before the exam under timed conditions and got 5 A's and a B and that exam was terrible!

    4 control accounts have never come up before in one exam? That's probably true, but if you can do one you can do the rest 😂
