Up to now i have wrote 2000 words of utter gibberish.

Has anybody laid the mapping document out in lay-man terms, that i could have a copy of? lol.

I seem to be writing the same things over and over again for each section. I'm absolutely stumped with the analysis section. I just don't know what is required and the wordings of the mapping document may as well be written in Latin.

I'm doing the Inkwell case scenario, concentrating on the General Ledger. The information i have is not really indepth but then again my eyes have gone blurry from reading it over and over.

Any help would be muchly appreciated,

Ta,

Neil.

    Have you got a copy of the marking criteria which shows what points you need to show in each section, in order to be marked as competent in each area? I wish I'd had a copy BEFORE I'd written mine, would have saved me a lot of time!

    If not, PM me your email and I'll send you a copy. I also have a breakdown of the sections if that would help.

    I've got a copy of the mapping document but the section breakdown would be a great help.

    Thanks Nps.

    I'll hunt it out in a mo (just tucking into some cake!)

    It's not the mapping document I have, but the marking criteria which shows the marker what they need to see written in order to mark you as competent. I'll send it with the breakdown.

    Try this link on MyAAT:

    From the level 4 page and ICAS section have a look at the standards for your mapping references aslo if you look at the guidance this will confirm what your findings should be showing.

    Hope it helps!

    Totally agree with you - I found the mapping document harder than the project!! If you get a 'layman' document, please let me know!!

    Our tutor has got us to leave it to end, I have just uploaded my 1st draft along with a hobbled together mapping document which I am sure is wrong. Anyhoooo will just have to be patient!!

    Keep up the good work - the end is in sight!!

    I was told to write out the structure of the business first - what it does, how it functions, roles and departments etc. Move onto strengths and weaknesses and then identify a major weakness that needs improving.
    Point out all potential areas of fraud in this area and the business as a whole and then do a cost benefit analysis on improving the system / area. This will have made up 90% of your report.

    Get the mapping doc off the practise assessment page and look through to see what you need to add in. There may be sentences that dont flow in the report but you have to stick in to cover the area needed on the ampping doc.

    Split your report into 3 columns, First column is paragraph numbering and middle one is text and final one is mapping ref. Then map the report to the doc and then on the doc you write the paragrah number relating to each point.
    Some paragraphs will cover a few points.

    Hope this helps
