    DFS was great! Everything balanced in section 1 for me, section 2 was quite nice! In and out in 1 n half hours

    Section 1 is definately passed! But I worry about section 2, but I do think I've answered it all well, but a mistake would be a bigger % than it should be!!

    Took me about 1.5 hours, think I've passed.

    Everything balanced - wey! Not too great on section 2 though - I forgot gearing so just did something anyway & explained that!:confused1:

    everthing balanced too, however I couldn't remember interest paid ratio and the impairment question I didn't answer correctly

    Same for me.

    Really glad DFS is out of the way, it's the one I've struggled with most of all. You watch I'll probably go and fail PCR now!:lol:

    Glad I've finished DFS today. All my figures balanced. The second section was straightforward as well. PEV, DFS done thats it for me and AAT. Good luck for everyone who's got exams left. Just the long wait to the results now.

    Dfs jun09 exams done

    HI
    Can you help!:001_smile:

    I have done the DFS exams today and althought the only thing I could not reconcilled was my cash flow statement , I had a small diff.
    I cannot remember if in this part there was a question to coment in the cash flow statement. Most probable there was, but I did'nt do it as I got very nervus and I wasted too much time but the only thing I know I did not reconcole was this.
    Can you telll me if we had to write and coment about the cash flow figures, as I don't think I did.
    Will I fail if I did not write the comments if there was any?

    This is the only thing I did not reconciled- the other parts I finished all.
    Many thanks

    I did DFS in December and couldn't remeber how to do the cash flow at all, put in the figures I knew (about 3 of them) and I stil passed so I wouldn't worry bout it!!

    Hi all,

    I dont think i answered task 2.2 well. What are the chances of me passing if i did really well on task 2.1 as that was worth 40 mins compared to 15 mins so you would think marks wise there would be more than 60% for task 2.1
  • GuruGuru Feels At Home Posts: 33Registered
    Is it the case that you're expected to get 70% (approx) per task, or per section?

    I would have thought it's per section, in which case you'll be ok.

    ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH
    i couldnt remember anything and had differences. little ones only but stiff differences. better than btc but worse than mac but now doubting that and why i'm even doing this
  • JointyJointy Feels At Home Posts: 78Registered
    I understand you have to be competent in both sections but i dont think the exam is even. On section 1 i didnt make a mistake and i could fail the exam because i got task 2.2 wrong. It should be a bit more even between the two sections.
  • xamixxamix New Member Posts: 11Registered
    its because section two only counts for 30% of the overall exam and section 1 is 70%

    hey all,

    just one question, what was the correct formula for the 4th ratio in the 2nd section?

    was it profit after operation / finance costs?

    Yeah profit before interest (profit from operations) / interest
  • xamixxamix New Member Posts: 11Registered
    interest cover should be.. profit from operations/finance costs ....i hope!!
  • PigpenPigpen Trusted Regular Posts: 331Registered
    Profit from operations (Before int & Tax) / Int - No of times Interest covered by Net profit I think

    i made the same mistakes i feel......but i got all the formula's correct on section two.........anybody feel this is enough to prove competent.....i did write some things in, but alot of it was blabbing on and getting small marks here and there!!!! :confused1:

    DFS is odd how can we not be competant if we can answer 8 out of 9 tasks but rules are rules
