    A-Vic couldnt help noticing the Rochdale badge. Fair play to them winning promotion!!!

    2 exams for me Personal tax and DFS. Feeling guilty but have really enjoyed DFS as just like getting stuck into Group accounts and consolidated SFPs etc as well as working out goodwill and minority interest.

    PTC halfway through BPP course companion and enjoying it but feel like I have had a blizzard of information thrown at me which is slowly but surely sinking in. As mentioned have only been doing PTC this week having previoulsy spent 6 or so weeks getting stuck into DFS so sure it will begin to come together in the next few weeks.

    All in all going fairly well and very optimistic although I wish someone would move the world cup back to June 19th!!!!

    I'm studying BTC and PTC and have found PTC a lot nicer!

    I'm back on BTC now and struggled last time I went through the book. I'm now taking it slowly and making sure I understand every chapter before moving on to the next one.

    BTC and PTC for me...was originally only going to do BTC but glad I started PTC as they pretty much overlap into each other. Enjoy doing it when I am in the mood for it :)

    Yes I'm sort of enjoying the studying but finding it very very hectic. I've only got DFS to do in June but finding it hard going as we only started the subject 3 weeks ago and should have 4 weeks tuition left until the exam but our tutor had a panic after realising the exam was so close and is seeing if we can go in half term week as she doesn't think everything will be covered thoroughly enough otherwise. Today we covered consolidated accounts - statements of financial position and loads were struggling but are now left to their own devices as no time to go back over it, they are feeling very let down.
    We also have not gone over any standards unless they have come up in a question we are doing in class - we have been told to go through them ourselves and make our own crib notes as no time.

    Level four you do, do two at a time unless over two years am sitting MAC BTC and completing Unit 10 (hopefully tonight) forget a life or sleep food on grab sessions and lots and lots of pencils and rubbers :lol:

    I'm on Level Four and this is the first time I am doing two. I hate it! So hard to find time to study as so busy at work.

    That sounds like a real nightmare. How many days a week are you at college studying DFS?

    PEV PTC DFS PCR

    Like PTC and DFS - can relate to both of these. Struggling with PEV and failed PCR.
    Got 4 exams in one week in June. It is the only way our college do Technician Level.
    Ideally best done over 2 years but clock ticking to complete all before next June.
    I work full time too. Just done Skills Test for Cash Management this week. That wasnt too bad. Looking forward to no more study hopefully at the end of these exams.

    No i think thats just the feeling sleep deprivation gives you. Maybe time to get your head down and rest now before you waste the whole weekend in bed.
