Cash Management Exam

I have just done my Cash exam tonight and I have looked at all the posts on here lately and I was worried as most comments said it was nothing like the practice papers. Well everyone was right, questions 1 and 2 were given in a different format to what I have learnt so I went a bit to pot and then you are consious of the time. Why have AAT not given more realistic practice papers?

    I took this exam today and completely agree with you.

    I failed yet again! Seem to miss out by 5% or so. I have now decided to give Auditing a go. Will have to study on my own.

    Any tips are much appreciated. A bit fed up now to be honest! :(

    Sorry to read that zippi. How do you find out the percentage you failed? It is a tough exam. I took it today and ran out of time to complete the 2 written questions.

    Last time my tutor gave me a break down of the paper we received and worked it out for me. I had 3 exceeded, 3 met and rest below. There are in total 10 questions 1.1,1.2 etc in an exam (without counting a,b,c within each) and I also compared it to my Financial performance result, where it was also out of 10 and I had 7 and I got through 1st time.

    I am eagerly awaiting my cash management result but not holding out much hope. Got budgeting coming up in the 25th May but although I have a Gud understanding of this subject I havnt done well with the practice papers.
    I've lost my motivation and just sick of waiting for results.
    Good luck everyone

    Budgeting is not too bad. Very similar to practice papers on line. It looks at historic expenses etc. However, make sure you study written questions well as they score a lot of marks.

    Good luck ☺️
