    I did it yesterday morning. I thought it went ok too! We was told that a 100% rate was extremely rare and most people have to re-sit certain questions. Anything below 80% is a fail.

    One (of many!) things I cant get are the higher and lower costs. I had to put a little note on my simulation paper than I had brain freeze!

    I sat mine in September and had to rush it as I spent too much time on the FRA one earlier in the day and got told the centre was shutting at 5pm. (Don't understand how as they were having student's coming in for evening classes), managed to get it done in less than 2 hours.

    Found it loads easier than the exam, I had thought I would really struggle with it but I passed.

    Reember to double check the reading of the product ranking question as they give you the contribution per one thing (i.e.) machine hour then the limiting factor is the other thing (ie. labour hour)
