    think i done better than last time but dont like to think about it too much as normally if i think i do bad i pass and if i think i done good i fail. but i did start thinking i was going to need more paper as i was writing so much. and was making a major effort to write every working as i think that not showing enough is my downfall in the past

    because of the different time zones people may still be sitting the exam or waiting to sit the exam

    overall i don't think the questions were that difficult but the volume of stuff they wanted was a bit overwhelming. i think it was definately a quantity vs quality paper and half the stuff learnt was useless. Don't know about this one, i'm just bricking it about BTC tomorrow :D

    hope the last question didnt count for too much - i really messed that up. didnt know 3 of the ratios, and panicked over gross margin ! so used one calculation for gross margin percentage but then another for the amended gross margin figure


    think i got the rest of the paper spot on though so hoping i should be ok

    Thought most of it was fine, bit confused by the RONA and the stock questions at the end. Did other people treat the materials in the first question as one 4X4 square per unit even though there was waste?
