Hi all,

Just wondered what your experience of the actual exam was like - was it similar to the practice CBAs on the AAT website???

I sat budgeting yesterday and exam was very similar to the AAT mocks but not sure how i am feeling with financial performance!!!

Thanks for taking the time to reply

    Thank you for this Marie,

    I think i am just panicing about this exam. I feel okish with the calculations and have spent most of today brushing up on the written elements - i've done myself a structure and i'm hoping that as long as i stick to this i will cover all the points that i need to. I just hope i don't get surprises on the exam!

    Hope you and me both pass it!!! I hate the wait for the results

    Well sat the exam and not sure how it went - i have never been able to predict these things! It was similar to the mocks but i found that there is lots of additional info you need to go through! Oh well its done now and have to wait 6 long weeks for the results!

    Try and forget about it now and enjoy the rest of the weekend! (says the person who starts checking My AAT for exam results about 10 days after sitting the exam :D)

    Good luck for your results :)

    Hi Becky,
    This "additional info" was also referred to in the earlier thread.
    I found that some of the questions included surplus details, which you did not need for the calculations, and may be were designed to confuse! so look at the questions carefully, and and check for all the relevant details that you need. Just because some figures are provided - it doesn't mean that you need them!
    Good luck,
    GP

    Good luck Becky, just keep practising, at least you are aware of the areas that may need a bit more, (have you done Greenlight & Osborne quizzes - they are good practice) once you get into the exam, stay calm, concentrate, and you will be fine. Just think, this time next week, it will be done!

    Hi Jane thanks, i think im ok now with the calculations, it is the written questions. Is it the same as the mock exams where section 2 is the written tasks? I will be revising in the sunshine over the weekend!!!! :)
