    Hi I have my exam scheduled in February, anything in particular that I should be focusing on to ensure I pass? I’m finding this unit quite difficult

    Were there any questions about FIFO/AVCO?

    Task 1 is very difficult.
    Task 2: reapportionment (direct method only). Remember BOAR Budgeted overheads/budgeted direct hours/labour hours * actual hours=
    Task 3: it is quite difficult as well. I think all those silly equations came up like BEP.
    Task 4: remember the working capital. Mine was not 365 days it was 90 days. This is quite easy. Also, remember the profits/disposals and deprecation whether they add or deduct to profit or cash. This is really simple.

    Task 5 and 6: you will find this area very very difficult.
    The AAT exams are way easier than the real part of the excel. It is difficult to even understand, let alone answer them.

    Only 2 passed in our class.

    With task 5 and 6 we should at least pick up some marks for the calculations. As per the mark scheme, not all marks are for Excel. That has eased my mind a bit.

    But actually 27% of the marks are from the Excel.
    I don't know why they they put practice assessments on there, when they are never like them which is very annoying. Oh, when it says NO formula needed just plug in the answer.
    Oh, and remember to learn segmentation.

    Oh and just to let you know. On task 5 and 6, there are very limited options to go back (use the return option.) So if something goes wrong you are very unlikely to be able to undo it.

    For Excel I have read conditional formatting is important

    The excel is very very very difficult.

    Only joking above.
    Have a go yourself at the paper, then watch him to see the areas that you need to improve on.
    I cannot stress enough that the actually exam is far harder than the practice assessments; especially the excel parts.

    > Hi, Thanks for the message. I am not good on Excel at all, and I am now watching Michael's videos, to see if that helps me at all as I need to get marks on these Tasks which I cant avoid. James

    Yes I did thankfully, I sat BUAW on Monday which was not good, resit incoming!

    There were loads of things in there I did not know the answer too, which were not covered my my book. I was not impressed at all.

    The Pestle was on a charity shop which was not fun either!
