Hi Gabrielle,

Answers are 21000- F- 181000 V-126000

36000 F-193000 V-205000

Variable for 36000 units worked out as 25000 x £6= 150,000 11000 x £5=55000...150000+55000=205000.

Hope this helps.

### Re: Contribution per limiting factor

Ok, so we know that it takes 1.5 hours to make a unit and that the company wants to make 6,000 units in total. That will require 6,000 x 1.5hours = 9,000 hours in total.

We already know that there is enough hours to produce 4500 units. If we multiply 4,500 x 1.5 hours = 6,750.

So, 6,750 hours have been used to make 4500 units. But we need 9,000 hours to make 6000 units.

9,000 - 6,750 = 2,250 hours which will be required for the remaining units

2,250 hours x £9 = 20250

Hope that helps!

### Re: Practice Assessment 1- Task 1b.

That’s the variable figure for units produced under 25000, after that the variable figure reduces to £5/unit. You can work this out using the high low method :-)

### Re: What is the Synoptic Assessment and what does it consist of?

Yes, it is difficult, but not impossible to pass.

It consists of 6 tasks, 2 MCQ tasks (20 marks each) and 4 writing tasks (15 marks each):

1. Accounting function - MCQ

2. Budgetary reporting - writing task

3. Accounting control systems and procedures - writing task

4. Decision making and control - writing task

5. Ratios - MCQ

6. SWOT analysis - internal control - writing task

The layout is the same as the other exams.

### Re: Exam results - 6 weeks?

You can get them sooner if they were assessed by your college, if you are self learner they are reviewed by AAT and they usually take up to 6 weeks

### Re: Exam results - 6 weeks?

I think 6 weeks is the maximum time you can expect your results. You'll probably receive them much sooner.

When I completed the AQ2013 qualification, the exams which also needed to be marked by someone also had a time-frame of 6 weeks, but I usually got them the same week. This has it's differences to AQ2016 though, so don't take it as gospel.

Might be better if you pose the actual question as not everyone on here has access to the questions
