Decision and control exam

Hi, I have my Decision and Controls exam in a few weeks and feeling quite nervous due to a lot of people struggling with this one! Has anyone got any tips on this exam e.g what areas to focus on the most?

Thanks in advance for any answers!

    Hi I will have my exam in couple of weeks as well, but I don't worry too much now, I just want a pass so I can move on to Synoptic.
    The main areas I focus on are standards, variances, limited factors and ABC costing and also practice calculations as much as possible
    What do you focus on?

    I have done this today.

    the section A is fairly easy:

    anticipates sales 20000 units x £18 (budgeted sales x sales price) result= (1)
    Target total operating profit (the question gives the answer 25% - profit margin) so result of the above (1) x 25% result= (2)
    Target cost would be the (1)-(2) result= (3)
    Target cost per unit (3) / 20000 units

    the section B is:

    target profit per unit is 25% of £17
    Total cost is the sales price - profit

    target fixed costs would be = total unit cost - total variable costs

    ii of section B, i didn't really understand how to calculate that sorry
