    Well I had a go but had to walk out of the exam after doing half of section 1 as I just could not do it : ( Nearly didn't turn up so at least I had a go and by December I will know the subject off by heart.... will do this whether it takes me 2 attempts or 22. Hey ho.....

    Nothing balanced for me but I know the errors I made after I came out the exam and I dont think they're that major. They caused it not to balance but it was just one little mistake in each of the financial statements. Section 2 was a breeze, they liked us this year :-) Overall ok, just a bit concerned about the little mistakes, hopefully I won't get penalised too much!!

    Remember this exam is a compenency test. You do not need to balance, but need to show your working to explain how you got your answers.

    As long as you have shown your workings and they make sense, you are more likely to be marked as competent.

    So don't worry about it and just relax.

    I know you have worked very hard on this paper and we have every confidence that you will pass that paper.

    Everything balanced :) Finished about 11.30... only question I think I made an error on was the first IAS one (don't think we can write much more just yet) but still wrote something so fingers crossed.

    I'm home. am with Rachey on this one. they were nice to us and would have made silly mistakes. got so stressed on the way in though as there were 3 broken down vehicles on the way there that blocked lanes. one person was late because of it but not too late and another guy just scrapped in and still finished before me. someone finished while i was still on section 1. God knows how she done that. im now going to celebrate by tidying my stuff up. yay (and hubby will like that too as hes anoyed by the mess)

    back :)

    horrendous journey getting there, motorway was backed up but was already on the slip road and could not turn around.

    nice paper, was in there till the very last minute as i could not leave it unbalanced (call me anal, it would have annoyed me)

    invigilator managed to stay awake, but swapped 3 times with 2 other people aarrgghh - i think i would rather have a snorer

    cant remember any answers so will just wait and see if any you mention ring bells (or alarm bells lol)

    Phew PTC next

    I got everything to balance.Which is a surprise as I have never got anything to balance before in an exam.

    Only thing I think I stuffed up on was the IAS (it was one of the easier ones too).

    Back at three to discuss

    Quite happy with that paper really, it was definately kinder than most of the previous papers IMO.

    There were no real red herrings apart from me thinking i worked out my impairment loss wrong, but i stuck by my gun and went with it, then speaking to some of the others later it sounds like they got the same figure

    Overall quite happy, couldnt have asked for a nicer paper

    Not long got home, finished at 11.20am so not too bad. Wow my hand ached though, I know I slipped up a little in section 2 by forgetting to factor a ratio into the report but I really hope I did enough to pass anyway as I think I justified everything I could. Section 1 was pretty much by the book I think, no surprises which I was surprised about considering it was a new examiner I thought they might want to make their mark and have a complete overhaul.

    i think the exam wasn't necessarily too easy; it was exactly how it should be!

    There shouldnt be any trick questions, in a working day, in actual practise, anything we are not sure of we would surely look up and double check, expecially with the rules changing!

    In the exam we dont have any reference or books so i think it's un-necessary to try and trip us up, the worded questions are hard enough without complications on the computations.

    Todays exam was exactly how exams should be...in my opinion anyway!

    I like it, I like it a lot :o) Messed up a bit on the IAS - like BTC in December, I spent quite a lot of time learning the hard stuff, only for it to not come up in the end!!! I know all the things that development costs have to demostrate, for example! Oh well, with a bit of luck I'll be starting ACCA in October (sort of), so I'm sure I'll thank myself for my efforts then!!

    For once I also managed to get everything to balance, which is better than I managed in my Intermediate exams last year.

    Nice way to end a rubbish week - how sad is this - exams have made me really look forward to getting back to work tomorrow!! Quick, somebody get me a life!

    Wasn't too bad, probably messed up on the IAS question and my cashflow didn't balance... Ah well.

    I was the second one out, sitting at front in second row. I did section 2 first, which only took about 20 mins then did the first half, the only thing I really had to think about was the inventories question which I think I got wrong, luckily everything else balanced.. even checked through twice.

    Where were u sitting?
