PCR Paper Laypout!

Hayley123Hayley123 Just JoinedRegistered Posts: 3
Hello

I have been doing all the past PCR papers and was really ready, until I have just looked at DEC 08 Paper!

I heard there was a new examinator for this one, does anyone know if he/she is writing the paper for tomorrow?? As the layout is so different to all the ones before!

Starting to freak out!

    I think it is the same examiner..we can only guess that the layout will remain the same as Dec 08

    I just cant get past limiting factor questions, for some reason my mind just goes blank i think its how they word it.

    I used to know what the reasons for variances were aswel but i have forgotten that aswel!!!!

    yea it is how they word it ... do the 2007 papers the limiting factor questions in them are worded better and much more straight forward hopefuly it will get ur confidence back up ..

    Have you looked at the MAC exam papers? They have got budgets in and the same kind of questions.

    I agree June 07 and Dec 07 are alot easier.

    Hi guys. i was one of the unfortunate people to sit the dec08 pcr and luckily i passed. It was basically the same old stuff just set out a little different. If you can do the old papers you can do this one. You just need to read the questions carefully and figure out what they're asking, rather than rush straight in like you can with all the past papers. Best of luck:thumbup1:

    My biggest fear is that their will be a really complicated rescheduling thing & they might bring Absorption and Marginal costing into play.
