Financial Performance exam on Monday - Variance help!!

Hi guys, im wondering if any of you can help me? I have my exam in a few days and have put so much time and effort into looking at variances but can't grasp any of it for some reason. Even the very basics isn't making sense to me. I don't seem to be able to remember or learn where you use the actual or standard etc. None of it is clicking or sinking in one bit!
Desperate help needed please!

    hi how did you get on the financial performance exam I got mine on Wednesday dreading it. I passed all the level 3 exams first times and have passed financial statements first but scared of this one..

    Hi there,

    Please see my drop box link I did a break down on material variances a while back, it might make it a bit easier to understand?

    Kind regards

    Don't worry about it I had my FNPF exam last week and it was very similar to the mock practise papers online
