PEV Exam - what did you think?

^Joe^Joe Feels At HomeRegistered Posts: 35
I thought it was easier than the past exams, being only one F/O variance! :thumbup1:


A lot of writing required elsewhere though.

What did you think?

  • x-lauren-xx-lauren-x Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22

  • Nicolaw1702Nicolaw1702 Feels At Home BoltonRegistered Posts: 64
    I couldnt get my variances to reconcile! Wasnt very confident!

    And the last question on section 2 I didnt understand! Couldnt do that one
  • x-lauren-xx-lauren-x Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    I was the same, but then for the last part of section 2 i just put down a load of workings and just hope that they can pull something usefull from it??? Fingers crossed x

    For the last question I did part B, where you had to calculate how much you would save on labour rate?

    Then just said after working out section B , I put I would invest as you would save so much just off the labour hours being reduced?

    did anyone else discount their depreciation? I did, by think I made a massive mistake in doing so!!
  • x-lauren-xx-lauren-x Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    Got 2 zero variances.... anyone else? Really put me off, never seen that before!
  • Debs2809Debs2809 Feels At Home Registered Posts: 42
    depreciation for what?
  • x-lauren-xx-lauren-x Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    I was thinking the same, didnt do anything with depreciation
  • Debs2809Debs2809 Feels At Home Registered Posts: 42
    I had two zero variances material usage and labour rate if I can remember rightly!!
  • Polymer xxPolymer xx New Member Registered Posts: 13
    OK, must have made some silliy mistake then.

    Yeah - got two nil variances - most people did though so think its all good!!
  • CJECJE New Member Registered Posts: 9

  • x-lauren-xx-lauren-x Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22

    Aye :)

    What reconciliations were there? Whoops, may have missed a question :mad2:
  • Nicolaw1702Nicolaw1702 Feels At Home BoltonRegistered Posts: 64
    I had the two same NIL variances also!!

    Put me off also , as never seen that before.

    But the question did say calculate the variances, IF ANY. so then I thought there must be at least one for them to put that.
  • x-lauren-xx-lauren-x Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 22
    My mistake is i never read the qu properly, so didnt see that..... oops never mind, seems i got it the same as most others so thats ok:)
  • Polymer xxPolymer xx New Member Registered Posts: 13
    anyone remember what they got for the lifecycle cost?
  • Debs2809Debs2809 Feels At Home Registered Posts: 42
    still don't know why I couldn't get it to balance. Can anyone tell me the variance for fixed overhead efficiency variance the absorption rate confused me as it was either £30 or £32.50......
