Am just about to start this unit. Has anyone completed this unit, is it tough going and how long did it take you - I am doing it by distance learning.

    I found Unit 15 one of the easiest of the units since Foundation! The best thing about this one is that it is assessed by Skills Test only - NO EXAM!!!!

    You will learn to draw up cash flows and also look at financing a business - loans, shares, bonds etc.

    This is a good 'light' unit (it was certainly a breath of fresh air for me as we did it during our Technician year).

    I did this one by distance learning - set myself up with it for 8 weeks and I found this was time enough before skills test - reasonably straight forward unit as well which made it more enjoyable, if that is the right word ... :001_smile:

    I made this unit hard work for myself didnt have any books or anything - although a few people have said it was easy i cant recommend do your reading before you attempt the sim.

    Good Luck :thumbup1:

    If I remember correctly, from start to finish it took about 10 weeks plus a week for the Skills Test.

    I messed my skills test up at college in December and didn't want to wait until June when we were told we could do it again at college. I boned up and did it on 28th Feb thru Kaplan, they were brilliant, got it marked in a week and had two little things to do, again marked in a week. Did it on a Sat morning at work, with my boss (Chartered accountant,) supervising.

    I would recommend this to anyone.

    But !! my college now won't let me do level 4 because I did this skills test through distance learning - I am appalled, so looks like another distance learning co will get my £££s!!

    Cost was £100bit less than usual as I didn't need a text book, but they provided mock and pratice questions and pass cards booklet. I did the practice stuff but didn't bother with getting mock checked just got on with it ! - I made damned certain I'd do it second time around. My problem first time was double checking cash flow - used too much time!! Lesson learnt there!

    The contact I had at Kaplan was James McNair - couldn't havebeen more helpful. They have to get you to register at a centre though I did Reading. Then then said the stuff to your designated invigilator.

    The contact might get sensored don't know!!

    Good luck.

    Anouther big "thumbs up" and thanks to James McNair at Kaplan distance learning, hes helped me out a few times with queries, problems with Sims etc. Actually most of the staff ive come across with Distance Learning are brill.
