    Even Though,according Fellow Student I Have Got Sound Knowledge On Double Entry I Believe Fra Is Hard When Posting Journals Specially Error Of Original Entry.

    FRA had to be the hardest for me. :thumbdown: I was a direct entrant into Intermediate, and really could have done with a couple of weeks intensive training on the double entry. ECR was logical and although there are lots of different formulas to remember they aren't particularly difficult and with a bit of thought most of them are pretty obvious.

    I think that ECR was harder than FRA. I am just glad that they are both over and done with now and we can relax for the summer.

    There are quite a few formulas you need to learn for the exam with ECR but it is fairly straight forward. There seems to be much more to learn with FRA and for me, even though I have done lots of accounts work through employment, the FRA was quite tough but enjoyable to do at the same time.

    FRA I forgot about revising disposals! But having both p&L and bal sheet was refreshing and fairly straightforward.
    ECR was just the same as many of the past papers.

    I think FRA is harder but in the most recent years, layout of FRA papers has become far more better and ECR papers have slightly change. So I think the gap is closing between the two papers.
