    I did past papers of recent years and found paper 2 2016 to be harder as compared to previous years papers. Did you find it difficult? I think I lost about 15 marks, or more. I hope paper 1 will be better. What do you think the grade boundaries for paper 2 for an A* will be?

    Well the mean average grade for A* for the past 5 years has been 191/240 and seems likely it'll dip to perhaps 187/240?

    I found the paper a bit unusual but not crazy hard however i probably lost 25 marks purely cause of my bad time management... Was aiming for A* but thats less likely now. Paper 1 seems like it may be harder considering limited companies have yet to come? Which variant did you do? I did 22.

    Even I couldn't manage my time properly, I was rushing through the last 2 pages on the last 10 minutes! I did variant 22 as well and will be doing variant 12 this Friday. Yeah I'm guessing limited company, books of prime entry, bank reconciliation and bad debts will come, but its unpredictable as they may also repeat some topics from Paper 2. I'm hoping paper 1 is better! :/

    I hate limited liability accounts ugh. Luckily it didn't come for me (paper 22) but it'll probably haunt me in paper 12
