    I am also in the same boat. i took my PEV exams in december and failed the first section. i think the best thing is to go complaint AAT so that they would not change the whole settings this time. i was shoked to see my results and could not believe it. also solving past papers is the best idea as well.

    Hiya

    I think I am likely to fail section 1 of PEV, I just can not get my head round the Volume, Capacity and Efficany Variences!! :mad2:

    I found this on one of the forums might help - although not tried it yet! :glare:

    A WAY TO REMEMBER FIXED OVERHEAD VOLUME VARIENCES-

    VOLUME VARIENCE-
    (Silly Bloody Variences)

    Standard- Budgeted= Volume

    EFFICIENCY VARIENCE-
    (Stamped addressed envelope)

    Standard-Actual=efficiency

    CAPACITY VARIENCE-
    (ABC)

    Actual-Budgeted=Capacity

    Hi Sharon

    Thanks for that! But dont you also have to x it by something as well, is it the standard costs?

    You times it by the O.A.R Overhead Absorption Rate.

    Some exams will tell you it but its worked out by

    budgeted fixed overheads total cost / budget total hours.

    Hope this helps

    Good Luck with the exam x

    Help!

    I am in the same boat as you guys. Took PEV and didn't pass it.

    Anyway, I'm currently doing home studies/revision and cannot work out 'tea processor operators' and 'decpreciation of tea machines' in Dec 07 paper Task 2.2 (a)

    Hi
    The tea processor operators is
    Pickmaster
    £6x10x100x8=£48000 this is because this machine uses 10 operators for each of the 8 machines for 100days at £6hr

    Pickmaster2
    £6x1x100x8=£4800 this is because only 1 operator required for each of the 8 machines for 100days at £6hr

    Depreciation
    Pickmaster £2000x 8 = £16000 (each machine is £2000)

    Pickmaster2 £9000x8 = £72000 (each machine is £9000)

    Hope this helps and good luck because i failed this paper too and am retaking again

    Thanks Tasha

    Thanks Tasha. I done the same calculation but wasn't getting but then I realise I also have to calculate it by 8

    I was doing £6x10x100 rather than £6x10x100x8

    Thanks and good luck to you too
