task 2.1 (v) fixed overhead efficieny variance
Could anyone explain how you get the answer £400 fav please? I can't understand the workings shown in the answers.
its 720hrs/18000unitsx17000 units = 680 standard hrs for actual production
then
680 (it should have taken)640(only took)= 40 hrs less time needed x overhead absorpbtion rate 10
40 x 10 = 400 favorable
Sorry a bit long winded but only way i can work it back0

ANSWER
(17,000 units x 720 hours /18000 units  640 hours ) x £10 = 680 hours  640 hours
= 40 hours x 10 = £400 Favourable
Explanation
17000 x (720/18,000=0.04) gives you expected to work hours = 680 hours less 640 Actual hrs worked = 40 hours saved (Favourable) X £10 (OAR) = £400 FAVOURABLE
(720/18,000=0.04) gives you hours to produce per unit
x 17000 will give expected hours to produce 17000 units = 680 hours
we expected to work 680 hours but have manged to produce in 640 hours  SAVED 40 hours therefore EFFICIENT (FAVOURABLE)
40 Hours x £10 = £400 Favourable0 
Thanks Vic and SDV, I'd actually just managed to figure it out but not sure I'll remember next time though lol0

ok his was more long winded but better0 
its 720hrs/18000unitsx17000 units = 680 standard hrs for actual production
then
680 (it should have taken)640(only took)= 40 hrs less time needed x overhead absorpbtion rate 10
40 x 10 = 400 favorable
Sorry a bit long winded but only way i can work it back
Sorry didn't realise you had already posted the explanation0 
Where can I find this past exam?
I checked on the MyAAT page under past MAC exams, but I can only see those from December 2006 to June 2009. Do you know where I could get my hands on the November (or December?) 2009 exam?
Thanks a million,

If you log in then look at the left hand side it says past exam papers try there0 
Thanks for this. How strange. I looked in the study zone frame under Diploma, then unit 33 and it doesn't come up there. This is great thought, I didn't know we had access to the NVQ exams too. How did I not notice this before?
Thanks again,
Sara0 
I didnt either for a whlie0
