    Thanks guys! My SOA hasn't appeared yet on MyAAT, I guess because it's my first L4 CBA, just waiting for that now!

    Well done Becca, I've got mine tomorrow at 9:00am. I'm not at my most spectacular at that time of day - who is!

    Good to know the results are coming through quickly as well - we were told 6 weeks which means just before Christmas. Lovely pressie if you pass but not so nice if you have to plan a £40 resit into the Christmas budget!

    Phew - hopefully that's that one over with.

    It was almost identical the practice CBT's on the website so thank goodness for that! I did have a complete head full of cotton wool when asked to calculate the variable production overhead in 1.4 though which was really annoying as I'd done that one so many times with no troubles on the CBT!

    Unfortunately our centre hadn't taught us anything to do with product life cycle but I'd gone through the whole of the BPP book and did that last night so it was still fresh but several on my course were saying afterwards they hadn't a clue :(

    Just got to wait for the results now - hope I did enough in the writing bit as thats the bit I was dreading! I left it till last and then took all the time allowed in the exam to just sit and examine and analyse the figures - resulting in another cotton wool moment of not being able to calculate percentages!!! Doh!

    Anyway - onward and upward hopefully - Financial Performance next.... whoop de doo!

    Becca I'm in North Devon - good to meet a fellow Devonshire lass

    Hi,

    I have my budgeting exam on Tuesday and really concerned about the written bits also. I seem to be fine with all the calculations and will be doing the same as you...doing all calculations first then concentrating all my time on the written questions.

    May I ask as I know you said it was very similar the the practice CBT did you have a written question like the one in the first section of the practice CBT about a Direct Labour Budget? Or something to that effect? Then in section 2 did you have a written question where you had to explain the variances of Material, admin, labour and marketing or something again to that effect?

    Thank you in advance for any help x
