I failed my AP1 exam yesterday!! Which was really poo!! But have rebooked for next Thursday and my AP2 is on Tuesday!! Does anyone have any more practice papers for these units, as I have done the ones on the AAT website and done the ones on the Osbourne website! Just want to get as must practice as I need!!
Its so annoying that they don't actually tell you where you went wrong!! *Grumble Grumble*
Level 2 - Passed 2011
Level 3 - Passed 2012
Level 4 - Passed 2014

Awaiting to start CIMA :)

    Oh Sammmy, I'm sorry to hear that. Do you have any idea what may have caused this i.e. areas you may have struggled with whilst studying AP2?

    Don't be too disheartened (easier said than done) as you will get there eventually :)

    I know the Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss account.. I think its the goodwill ratios letting me down and possibly the incomplete records bit..

    Its just soooo upsetting!!

    Hey Sammy88, glad to hear you passed the second time round! Was there a major difference in the topics covered between the two papers? I'm not sure what subjects to focus on more then others.

    How did you find AP2, much harder then 1?

    When you mean difference between the two papers, do you mean the two AP1's or took, or between AP1 and AP2?

    I did find AP2 harder than AP1, but I know the Balance Sheet and P&L Its just the other bits that let me down I think!! I suppose its the way its worded, and I had goodwill ratios!! More practice I think is needed for me!!

    I meant between the first and second AP1 papers you took. I'm worried none of the stuff I'm comfortable with will come up.
