The hardest exam on level 3?

I have completed all of level 3 recently and wondered for those who have finished all of level 3 which exam you found the hardest? For me it was Cash Managment which I completed last year. I thought I understood the subject just as well as the other modules, but the exam was quite different to all the questions in my book and mock exams. Everyone in my class seemed really nervous of AP2 and C&R but I thought the exams were a lot easier than the CM exam.

    CM, AP1 and CRS in that order (still have PEAF to do though)

    I found AP1 and AP2 hardest, as I found them the less 'intuitive' exams.

    I have always found the core accounting modules the hardest!

    AP1 & AP2 for me too, found the 'numbers and costing' side of things easier in level 3

    CRS as there was so much to take in, failed AP1 (or was it 2?) though, but didn't find it the hardest one

    I think AP1 was the hardest in terms of learning, but Cost and Revenues was a horrible exam!

    so we managed to mention nearly every module from level 3 (apart from spreadsheets and ethics) this means everyone is different and finds different things easier than others.

    cash management its awful , there is too many questions and not enough time. Also getting section a of a question wrong can cause b and c to be wrong . Dreading the exam for this

    Cash Management so far out of that, AP1 and AP2 although I passed all okay.

    It is so unlike the practice assessments online and I sat in front of some of the questions not really sure what it was asking of me! Hey ho at least I passed but would love to know how much by!! 50% pass rate for our class on this one.
