I finished the paper in about 2 and a half hours and on the whole found it a nice paper, much easier than the ones from days of old that were really hard! Spent ages yesterday learning all the formulas for only a couple to come up. Know my operating statement was £30 out and messed up one ratio but can now forget about the paper til mid August.

Hope everyone else was ok? x :001_smile:

    Thought it was a pretty fair paper. The only tricky part was part 1.3 which I wasn't quite sure what to do with as I didn't think the wording was great but apart from that, if I've failed I've only got myself to blame :laugh:

    Feeling pretty good, just the last question on each section was a little tricky, but I think i've done it how they want it to be done, so feeling like i deserve to pass!!

    Can't wait for 3 though!

    Did everyone go for purchasing or leasing on the last question? I made the whole thing up as I really wasnt sure!

    I found it pretty straight forward except the very last sub question. Put an answer but not sure about it.

    It's finally 3!!

    the answers that I can remember are:
    2.2 £2400 increase and 80%

    2.3 It should be bought

    Cost Card I got 16900.

    thats all I can remember though, maybe I'll see some more as the day goes on!!

    Edited btw.

    What was the 16900 for? I got 80% for return on assets :) and purchase due to saving of 51840? :)

    Hi, I got the same as you for 2.2. And 2.3 should be bought. Did you put the first £125k for lease payment in Year 0 rather than Year 1? I did thinking that this is where it should sit with being paid in advance but having doubts now!
  • garry_coombs
    garry_coombs Registered Posts: 108 ? ? ?
    oh sorry maybe not for that question then, I'll edit it actually, the 16900 was for the cost card in section 1, not sure why i mixed that up, 2400 increase in profit.

    I can't tottally remember the saving, but want to say that i had over 200k, but not sure at all.

    I put my £125,000 in year 0 too, with it being paid in advance it should go here.

    I'm confused with £16,900 what was that figure for??

    i got 16900 for the answer to the standard cost card in section 1. 80% in the return on the additional investment in section 2 and my recommendation was to buy the machines as the saving was 51k something or other.

    I put £125k in the year 0 too, and didnt put it in year 5 as it had finished by then, was that right? My cost card came to £27200... Gulp!!!
  • lala2009

    Yep my 125,000 was in year 0. And 2400 profit increase. But think the cost was wrong cos had something like 151,000?

    yea i put it in year 0, and was the purchase meant to be in year 0?

    for Leasing I put 125k in year 0, 165k for the years 1-4 and 40k in year 5, but wasn't totally sure if the running costs would still be there in leasing, wrote a note to say I was assuming it was still there.

    what about the future contact? with the seasonal variances?

    i worked out that it would cost an extra £18000 to take out the contract.

    can any1 tell me which index number they used - the trend or the seasonally adjusted ones?
    I got 169000. Also got 80% & went for purchase as it was 51680 cheaper. Feeling more confident now as at least if I'm wrong, I'm wrong in company!!

    Got exactly the same. Also for section 2 £2.4m profit increase and NPC of leasing was approx double the purchase option.

    Indexing?

    I had a complete blank for the indexing task 1.3, and ended up leaving it blank, what did it want to know, and how did you work it out?

    I thought the rest was ok though

    I used seasonally adjusted, I thought the question was written fairly oddly, so I wrote a note about it!!

    Yeh, that sounds like what I put. The indexed costs were, I think:

    1200 x 126/105 £1440 x 100 tonnes £144,000
    1200 x 119/105 £1360 x 100 tonnes £136,000
    1200 x 133/105 £1520 x 100 tonnes £152,000

    Total £432,000

    If contracted £150,000 x 3 £450,000....extra £18k

    I did £1200 / 105 (Mays index) x current index.

    Hi Byrnie

    I used seasonally adjusted.

    This all added up to 4320 tonnes giving a saving of 180 tonnes over the contract
