    you'll be fine, i rounded up, but either way as long as you completed the consolidation then its fine, you get the marks for using the correct methods. Plus seeing as it was 66.666% then I'm sure they'll be expecting people to use 66%; 2/3 or 67%

    DFS exam Dec 08

    Hi all

    Just to say the paper went ok on the whole. The only slip-up I made was in the balance sheet in Section 1. I think I made a mess up of the journal entries for the sales returns. I did:-
    DR Sales returns CR Receivables
    DR Inventories(B/S) CR Inventories(B/S)

    Is that correct. I got a profit figure for hte year of £1602 and the balance sheet was out by about £2900. I checked my workings over and over at the end but could not account for the difference. Did anyone else have the same problem?

    Otherwise I think I did ok. I presume the report re the cash flow question meant only to comment on net cash from operating activities. But I also mentioned the purchase of fixed assets and that the NCF from operations plus the extra finance raised from loans and shares was not enough to cover this outlay, hence the reduction in NCF of £2m for the year.

    In Section 2 I was not sure whether the slight decrease in payables turnover was good or bad. I said this had improved.

    Please reply with your comments.

    I haven't seen the paper but I am sure they will atke your figure and work it forward from where you first amde any error. You'll be fine and, anyway, it's too late to alter it now so don't lose sleep over it - move on to whatever you're doing next and enoy the surprise when you get your exam results in February!

    As all the figures that you needed to adjust for were divisible by 3 I just did everything at 1/3 or 2/3 instead of using percentages...?
