How did everyone find todays exam
So I had issues with part 3 of Q2 (Evaluating the performance analysis) and Part 1 of question 3. For part 1 of question 3 I essentially did no calculations apart from a very basic p/l on disposal calculation (which is defo wrong) but put commentary for the following:



- That one was full disposal of sub and 2 was part disposal with control still retained

- That Development costs should be capitalised, thereby increasing the profit and increasing net assets, thereby increasing the consideration likely to be received

- Gave commentary around the fact that for the part disposed sub there would be no p/l and NCI would just be reduced to reflect lower ownership

- Mentioned how the investment would have been held in the individual financial statements (FVTOCI? probably wrong but just rushed and put it down) and that this would be impacted

- Just general waffle about control etc to try and scrape more marks



Just thought I'd throw this out there in case anyone did similar or it helps anyone... I feel like part 1 of q3 could only be worth 12 marks max as the audit section of it was heavy (likely 12 marks) and the ethics probably 6? Anyone agree disagree? Also how many marks do we thing the final part of Q2 was worth?

Meh, didn't do the performance analysis bit at all but did the 3 FR treatments and the fixed cost/ provision part? What did you do for it?

The fixed cost provision part? What bit was that? I probably didn’t notice that.

I also didn’t do question 2 part 3 cause I ran out of time. I hated question 3 FR parts, mind went absolutely blank and had no idea what I wrote. Think it’s a resit for me

There was a tiny bit under the draft FS in q2 that mentioned fixed costs had been apportioned as normal so I think you needed to take out a couple months as it was discontinued operation with a few months spare in the financial year, and then there was a bit saying a provision was recognised for restructuring and redundancies... it was super brief i recon it was literally worth 3 marks so I wouldnt stress it at all

Yea me too, it took me 10 minutes on q3 to even think of anything to put down, what did you end up actually saying for the fr treatment for q3?

So hard to gauge, I'm assuming i did fairly well on the treatment of leases and just fingers crossed for the audit.... really need to get like mid twenties in it to pad out the other two questions which i felt went poorly

I feel exactly the same. I’d be lucky if I got any marks in question 3. It really went terrible.

For audit and FR? What did you end up getting down? Sure it went better than you think

Did you manage to get the adjustments in there or just leave it?

Ah sure that will get you a couple marks to be fair! I mean there wasn't tons of adjustments from what I remember? I think i just put a reversal of the entirety of the lease being expensed to p/l, added depreciation on ROU asset in, added finance cost in from the one year of unwinding of the lease liability... not sure if that is even correct so who knows. How did you find the rest of the paper?

found the audit bits ok - quite straight forward. FR bits were v time pressured but quite liked Q3 best and the inflo notes I had basically meant I didnt have to go into it which was helpful

Sounds pretty promising! What kind of stuff did you put down for FR treatment and audit risk/procedures for Q3? Yea i had a few inflo notes for about 4 transactions which I just spewed out which was handy, then grabbed 2 from inflow so fingers crossed, annoyingly i cant actually remember how much i did for q1 in terms of the split between audit risks, procedures and comments on the juniors work which is annoying
