    Hi,

    Good luck for tomorrow. I sat my budgeting exam 14th November and I am pleased to say there were no nasty surprised as lons as you have one the AAT mocks you can expect the same. I even had 1 question which was the exact same on my exam compared with that of the AAT mock.

    Great - thank you.

    I feel i have done enough of the numerical questions and perhaps i need to focus on the written ones now!
    I just needed some reassurance that i can expect something along the lines of CBA's!

    Thank you xx

    Hello Alicia

    I sat budgeting on 4 January and found the actual CBA similar to the practice CBA.

    Have you attempted the additional questions available on greenlight to test your knowledge?

    Good luck tomorrow :)

    Yes i have completed the green light questions.

    I hope mine is similar to CBA's! I have even completed an old paper to try and get a feel for the assessments and that was fairly similar to CBA's.

    Thanks for the reply - fingers and toes crossed for tomorrow! :) xx

    Hello

    Iam sure one of my essay questions (Section 2) was on the monitoring of variances. I am still waiting for my results but feel like i am loosing hope with it as every day goes by! The rest i found was pretty similar to the practice CBA.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Alicia,

    The good thing this year is that we get feeback!

    I failed budgeting but my feedback told me the only task i did not meet was the written task in section 2!

    This is why im so worried, there's so many questions they could ask and the book has too much to take in haha

    Oh well resits two o clock, ive taken the day of work to read this book and make sure i know

    Good luck on your results, the waiting is the hardest!

    It took 3 weeks and 5 days for ours to come through, but we sat financial performance the 24th Jan and they havent come through yet
