Financial Statement Exam

Trish80Trish80 New MemberRegistered Posts: 6
Hello All

I just had my financial Statement exam this morning with Bpp and I can say it was manageable.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attempt question 2 task 1, which was to do with Ratio calculations . I could view the additional information and the first few lines of the question, but could not view the Ratios in question, and also had no space to answer the question.


I raised the query with the Bpp invigilator and he mentioned that he will have to send a report to AAT and get them to invstigate it.

Has anyone come across this problem, if so how was it resolved. I am worried that i will not get my exam marked fairly due to this.

Many thanks
Trish

    I'm fairly sure that something similar happened to me in my Indirect Tax exam. I was asked to fill out a return and I'm sure only half of it was shown. The tax return was cut off very abruptly and it looked like there should have been a scroll bar there, but there wasn't. The question was far too short and basic for the marks available so I'm pretty sure that there was a problem.

    I passed anyway so didn't need to raise it but I thought it might help to know that you are probably not the first it has happened to.

    I've also had an issue where my screen just froze and I was booted out of my exam, it took the invigilator three attempts to get it up and running again, before I could continue. The time left for the exam also froze so I didn't lose time as such, but I did have to redo a page of answers so it may have been an issue if I had been running short of time. Luckily those types of things don't faze me, but I imagine if someone was already nervous and panicking, it could mean the difference between a pass and a fail.

    I hope you get it all sorted (or rather that you pass anyway so you don't need to sort it!)

    Thank you for sharing your experience and am glad you passed anyways after what you went through. Thought i was the first.

    I also waisted a few minutes of my exam trying to explain to the inviligilator. I do hope that it will be sorted. Guess i will have to patient and see what happens.
