#23714 Horrendous Exam

Posted by Moral Fabric on 16 May 2005 - 04:03 PM in Accounting

QUOTE(Kevin_Kilbane @ May 16 2005, 04:45 PM)
Im not sure about that mistake.

People have told me that 22 is the 11 months figure, so 24 will be the 12 months one.

Still it was a complete f*ck up and the reason we could have done pishly is because the stupid SQA think its great to have two common Highers on the same day - how are we able to have our "wits" about us and avoid making stupid mistakes when your completely exhausted?

OHHH MAN, thats crap!!! i couldnt work that out, i kept making that mistake, i though he was owed it from a seperate month out of this year and had to be payed this month, they should have worded it more clearly, hopefully that'll come up at the markers meeting!



#23724 Horrendous Exam

Posted by Moral Fabric on 16 May 2005 - 04:10 PM in Accounting

question 6 is wrong, break even is not 1200 units, its 2500 units
Contribution = £50 - 5 - (3x9) - (2x3) = £12
BEP = FC/Cont = 30,000/£12
= 2,500 Units, Sales Value = 50x2,500 = £125,000

I think. laugh.gif



#23734 Horrendous Exam

Posted by Moral Fabric on 16 May 2005 - 04:28 PM in Accounting

Personally i feel the paper was quite hard, there was alot a places you could slip up on. I was looking at past pass marks, last year you needed 71% then 2003 was 75% hopefully they won't raise it this year, if anything it should go down a few %.
what do you guys think? sad.gif

Oh yeah I just used the £9 but I'll only lose like two marks for it for adding wrong

View Post



you might lose more though, cos of the question you "had to sell less" for...
and the MOS will be consequential
there are some others you may lose a further mark...



#23752 Crashing Accounts

Posted by Moral Fabric on 16 May 2005 - 05:44 PM in Accounting

Accounts is a hard subject i feel just because theres so much material you have to learn, having it at SG definately helps, its possible to crash but it would be exceptionally hard i think, mind you i thought it was really hard this year, the exam didnt go well, but we'll see on August 9th sad.gif



#23755 Uzbekistan

Guess who biggrin.gif am back tongue.gif lol
i think maybe the reason it wasnt covered as well may have been the consequences of making is so public... what they may be I'm not sure, but think about it internationally and not personally.

maybe its also the the oil situation, by having bad relations with a country that we have oil running through may not be the best, we need oil, it keeps our economy and people alive,... generating trade and energy etc, i believe more than 200 people would die. Its the greater good scenario, lol.

maybe I'm wrong, but Freedom of speech r0x tongue.gif

i agree that we tend to deal with backward extreame religious countries in the middle east for oil and i do think thats a bad thing because we are dependant on them

So, i long for the day we can ditch oil for something we have a lot of like.....alcohol maybe or sunflower oil

Think about it, H2 + 1/2O2 ---> H2O

cleaner than clean, then you you use electrolysis and go all over again

only problem is trying to produce more energy than you use to seperate the Hydrogen from the water.

roll on that day.... 'mon the chemists, lol

Louts, you've changed the title biggrin.gif

Just from this thread, I reckon its obvious the Accounting Paper has been a difficult, although the SQA didn't exactly help with their shocking wording of questions and "odd" compulsory questions.

What was it before? biggrin.gif
Well I guess it makes things a bit better that there are a few of you that found the exam to be really nasty. Pass marks will most likely be lower at least!

Im Feeling really worried now because I never felt any of the exam was really hard. It just seemed to be a straight forward exam imo. I must have missed something, but everyone who sat it at my school found it fine.

Did anyone take a note of the answers they put???

#23783 Horrendous Exam

QUOTE(ermdeviation @ May 16 2005, 08:34 PM)
Are you sure about the B/E? I couldn't decide whether to add depreciation in or not for fixed costs. Anyways, all of my figures were whole numbers throughout the rest of the Q so that has to be good biggrin.gif

Man, tht was a bad exam - still feeling goroggy, just having done geo, then hit with wthat. Kept getting temperature fluctuations.

On the bright side - I won our accounting prize. Me gets a shield thing for it biggrin.gif

stolen from my clutches i may add tongue.gif lol
joking biggrin.gif
it was a hard exam, in a hot n stuffy classroom with an invidulator that interupted once or twice, lol... i guess she was just trying to help
anyway, i've failed,... and yes... i'm positive about the B/E cos your accounting for one unit, one unit takes 3 labour hours to produce to the variable cost is the labour hours X the rate they are paid at cool.gif

QUOTE(Discogirl17 @ Feb 15 2005, 10:40 AM)
Well yeh the exam is out of 200 but to be honest its only cos they have doubled the marks you get for doing each bit of working so instead of getting a half mark for something you get a full one.

View Post


but if they doubled the marks you wouldnt get odd marked questions, lol i get what you mean though
