    yeah they were when i did mine back in May, how did you find the rest of the exam? or any questions you thought you struggled with?

    Definitely one of the hardest exams I’ve done so far. Majority of the questions seemed to be similar to the mock exam but one question stumped me. A lot of preparation is definitely needed and looking back now I should have referenced the case study more.

    How did you find it? Do you get your results soon?

    @Mewmoon yeah same when I did it, I failed by one mark, so just waiting to go back In for it, I messed up the make a decision question (think it was question two) then the question 4 I think I made errors, they were on job segregation if I remember rightly

    @thelowendtheory18 fingers crossed for you; I can’t remember what the question was now for mine, but as long as you are rational you should get marks

    Keep going of those that didn pass This time around...and if you have 69% defo appeal it. .You have nothing to lose.....I appealed my D&C exam as I had 69% but there isn't that many written questions that are open to interpretation..... but in the synoptic it's mostly written so may be successful in appealing the result

    Looking more closely at my result is very interesting

    Task 1 exceeded
    Task 2 exceeded
    Task 3 below requirement
    Task 4 below requirement
    Task 5 exceeded
    Task 6 (dreaded SWOT) Met

    It's really important to try and take maximum marks on task 1 & 5... that's what I focused alot on and it seems to have paid of...

    @thelowendtheory18 Well done on your pass! And thank you for your encouraging words. Did you manage to get your marks changed for the D&C?

    My results were:

    Task 1 exceeded
    Task 2 significantly below
    Task 3 met
    Task 4 below req
    Task 5 exceeded
    Task 6 below req

    I quite surprised with task 6 I expected at least a met grade 🤷‍♀️

    @LSmithYorkshire good luck for next week ☘️ Let us know how you get on. I’ve booked my exam for 20th sept.

    @Alsa. Try and not get too defeated by it. I would look at your results and concentrate on your weakest areas. Keep trying and it be worth it in the end 🤗

    I was unsuccessful in appealing the D&C result..... but I really would urge you to appeal your result as there are some many written questions (much more than the D&C exam)

    Hi there:)
    Can I get know, how did you @thelowendtheory18 prepare to synoptics-hich books did you use, any course taken? I have attempted twice (64%, 61%). Do not know how to improve my scores..🤔

    @annamiki I'll used Kaplan text books and exam kit and studied on demand at home.. how did you do in tasks 2 & 5?? In my opinion you need to get close to 100% on these tasks to give yourself a good chance of passing

    What about pre-released scenario- no idea in which task should relate to it- in 5 or 6..?
  • thelowendtheory18
    thelowendtheory18 Registered Posts: 290
    Very sorry..I meant to say task 1 & 5... there are no written elements to these questions and with practice you should am to pick up at least 90% of the marks on these tasks

    To get exceeded in any of the areas you need to get 14/15 out of 15 or 10/10 in the others. I’ve found on question 5 even without knowing the ratios you can pretty much work them out anyway. Question 3/4 is where I have fallen down
  • annamiki
    annamiki Registered, AAT Student Posts: 6
    Ok. I need more practice on these tasks..
    Sorry, last question:)- did you relate to pre-released scenario (Veggie Delights) in task 6?
    Sorry to bother you..

    I had a swot based analysis, which it tells you everything in the task, but if you get the other type of question you can, I throw in that they’re rapidly growing business so controls will need to be in place
