The personal finance stuff was actually harder than I was expecting, I spent almost an hour on that *female dog*.
Seriously the paper was just like 80% long answer questions 20% actual maths, like what was the point of learning all those ratios and formulas.

pawnbrokers- quick way of acquiring cash needed for short period of time, no interest charged
Types of financial business- im not quite sure but i gave a wild guess and wrote banks/building societies :/
Pros of Chaps- didn't even know what it was lol, but anyways i wrote quick and fast for transferring funds one off and no need to sign up. might sound stupid but lemme tell ya those 2/4 markers were considerably harder than the big questions in my opinion.
Advantages of store card- Basically off you benefits such as loyalty rewards that can contain discounts, saves money and i think i wrote one more and for disadvantages i simply wrote they are only restricted to the specific department store so Sam wont benefit when making purchases in other stores for value as the source states he researches before going ahead with payments.
Breakeven- The one im really scared about easy question, which i felt like i bottled. I got something like 16500 shirts i think 😬 Hope im right.
ISA HAKIM one- explained each one and opted for the royal bank in end and gave my opinion.

Did anyone else feel that we weren't given enough time? I only had about 5 mins left for the last 12 mark question...

Yeah timing is really tight in the exam. I literally had around 12 mins to complete last 3 question, which i had to rush through. Were there any questions which particularly stood out for you?

I was very lost on the question where it shows the difference between the business not making notebooks and them making notebooks. I completely forgot what current ratio and liquid capital ratio meant so I just had to guess as I didn't have time to think.
