I just can't believe how easy the paper was today. I was done in 75 minutes -- and that's only because I wrote it all in pencil and had to rub it all out and write it all again in pen.

I was anticipatiting something tricky to throw me off course, but everything balanced first time. Next year students will revise the June 2008 paper and think it's simple! And it was!

I'm so happy!

Woooo!

    i thought it was one of the hardests. I was breezing until section 2 though.
    Other than being VAT registered i don't think section 2 could have been harder?
    Did you find it easy compared to past papers or just easy on the day.
    I've found the past papers to be really simple compared to this.

    I totally agree with you, I spent so long revising the more complicated stuff I forgot basic things like the balance sheet lay out!!! :blushing:

    Hi,

    I was just reading peoples post on yesterday's exam FRA. I have got to agree with the majority of people, this exam was hard, completely different from the past papers, i have been studying. Just got my fingers crossed otherwise will have to resit it.

    I thought that the paper we did was the easiest out of all the past exam papers, we did not have to do any markup's or Margins, use the accouting equation for part 1, no memo, no appropration account, no using SSAP to calculate closing stock, no journals, no bad debt provision. For me I think the only big thing was the fixed asset disposal

    give me all of the above and take away the balance sheet with no proforma!

    Twas good when we'd finished eh George? -- we'd gone into it fully planning on taking 2-2.5 hours and left in half that time.

    Was a great atmosphere -- roll on results day!

    I agree with Chris - there was nothing tricky at all, but maybe the margin for error will be tighter resulting in more failures?

    All in all, I'm very happy with my performance and seem to have seen all the potential pitfalls of the paper - Drawings and wages error, Interest received, corrections, disposal, current account....
