FRA how do we think we did?

i know we cannot post anything more than that till after 8pm but are we confident?

i think i am :thumbup: but i will wait for people to post their answers and then probably get really depressed :crying:

    FRA - How was it for you?

    I know also, we cannot post too much till after 8 p.m. tonight, but judging by the fact that at least two of us have finished, have travelled back home and are sat typing up postings, that the exam was fairly straight-forward? I am questioning myself over and over, since I left wondering if I missed something? Won't say any more though.

    I'd finished within 90 mins and was convinced I must have missed something!
    I thought it was a brilliant exam! If you'd revised and put the hours in it was pretty straight forward.

    I've spoken to a few friends though who didn't seem like they'd done too well. Couldn't get stuff to balance and panicked.

    Overall. I loved it :D

    Totally agree, this was a resit for me and in comparison to all past papers I thought it was straight forward and no need to use a suspense either, chow for now!!

    I finished in 1.5hrs too and thought it was ok - pleasantly surprised. Everything balanced which is a good sign (hopefully) but will be interesting as you say when numbers start appearing on the site.

    Aye didnt really seem to bad, finished a bit too fast though but didnt want to go back and check cos everything seem to just balance first go (which is bloody rare!!).

    A lot of the harder stuff (to me at least) didnt make an appearance at all though which suprised me - cant mention what but if you sat it you should know what i mean!

    This exams was dead easy. All balanced and everything answered. This and ECR out the way I'm already looking forward to technician level. Though looking at the replies and comments on the technician boards, it does seems a big jump from Intermediate to Technician level.

    I am so glad it is over... but agree with most of you guys it defo was soooo much easier than some of the past papers i have done, took me only 20 mins for section 1 and i was out of the exam room after just over an hour and 10 mins... glad some of the harder stuff didn't come up but like you said, if you put the work in you should be ok!!
    Bring it on! Good luck everyone! xxx :001_tt2:

    Not too Bad

    I too thought the exam was straight forward, no surprises and everything balanced without needing to go over anything. Out of all the past papers this was by far the easiest. The skills test though in comparison was pretty solid.
    Can't wait till later till numbers start appearing!!:thumbup:

    i know i've definately made one mistake but the b/s was still right, so hopefully they'll let me have that one!!

    how about you?

    it was better than i thought, no mark up or margin =)

    I think I did ok - I completely froze when I first opened it, but once I got going, everything actually balanced on the first go! I think that's a first for me! I thought ECR was easier, but think FRA definitely went better than I anticipated. Can't wait to see numbers and see if my balancing was actually correct! :thumbup:

    My b/s was out slightly (£50!!) and still can't think where i went wrong!! But apart from that all seemed to be ok, felt quite confident working through it... extremely glad no mark ups/margins.... i still can't get my head around them!! x

    jenz496 Registered Posts: 31 ? ? ?
    lol.

    i was ready to do all the mark up/margin questions first, that was my plan. before i had chance to forget how, but luckily none were there.

    my b/s sheet balanced thank god, it was only when i came out i realised the error. but at least it didn't affect my total. will be interesting later to see some figures appearing!!

    I think I did pretty well. There is one nagging doubt I have about the depreciation charge for the year, but other than that, I didn't have any trouble. It will be interesting to see if others done the same as me though... I'll have to wait untill 8.01 pm...

    I'm worried even though everything balanced - I seriously have never had anything balance first go. Spent ages on the part-exchange, but think it worked out..Just nervous because it did almost seem too easy....

    i had minutes to spare only cos my bs did not balance, then after working and reworking it finally did.

    section 1 was really easy, flew through that

    Argh

    OMG I left the exam about 4.40 after my balance sheet didnt balance because my trial balance didnt balance. my bank account nearly did but then I realised Id done everything back to front. Found it really hard and nearly cried. You guys are saying your glad partnership apportionment anf FRS wernt on there but thats the stuff i find easiest

    Yes you can still pass, if you've shown your workings and the theory is correct

    I couldn't believe it was this easy, I even checked if the question paper still had all the sheets. Hope answers were correct everything balanced though:thumbup:
