2007 Higher Accounting
Posted 18 May 2007 - 10:59 PM
Did anyone else think the same as me??
**It's crash higher accounts I'm doing btw. I got A's in the prelims, top marks in class but the exam was just a nightmare.

Thought the exam generally was okay but completely ran out of time because the cash budget took me a full hour - had to skip half my balance sheet for the club account and the theory for the management was useless - had like 1 minute to do it so put what i could in that time. Noone in my school actually managed to finish it eveyone was skipping parts out.
Did anyone get a loss on manufacture of £7? and at first my trading account was coming up with decimels - then added the 1 for interest on overdraft and it seemed to work out fine after that - hopefully got good marks in my Qs 2,4 and 6!! Really wanted a B - i wonder what the pass marks will be looking like?

Pass marks for previous years were:
I hope its round the 135 mark but i doubt it, I think it will be about 140 for an A because it was an easyish exam, just depends on how everyone else has done. The people in my school found the exam not too bad, and thats saying something as going by prelim results only 2 of us passed the exam...
What did people get for the surplus or deficit for the income and expenditure?

Completely screwed up my full q1 I got a loss on refreshments and a profit on everything else - dont remember the exact figure but I did get a surplus - then decided as I did not have enough time would only do half my balance sheet (how smart) but did work out my closing bank balance so should hopefully get some marks. That question was 35 marks for both the i + e account and the balance sheet - do you know how the marks will be spread? Just want to know how much I would have lost on my balance sheet.
Also for your cash budget did you get all positives for your closing bank balances? I did but people were saying they got all negatives and I was getting slightly worried.
Thanks for putting up the pass marks - hopefully I will be able to get a B as 121 doesnt sound so hard to get but you never know!!

I got a loss of around that sum for my Manufacturing Account - I thought that question was a really good break - can anyone remember what they got for their final closing balance on the Trading and Profit and Loss Account after the appropriations bit???
I think if I remember correctly that I got positives for my cash balnce, but I did get my production budget slightly wrong, but I did get positives!!!

I had positives to for the cash budgets, i mucked them up slightly with the bonus part but och well, only a couple of marks.
I think I had £60.75 for my closing balance, but yet again i mucked that up because i forgot to add in interest. Man I've mucked up a few things now....great well heres hoping the rest of my exam is fine...
What did everyone else get for the closing balance??
please say like £60 or £61!!!!

glad that some other people were getting all positives - my figure i thought was a bit to high at the end like £60 thousand and something!! - is this the closing balance you were talking about or the trading one?(if its this one and we seem to have around the same im gonna be so happy!! )
completely forgot about space in my production budget had like 1 tiny dot of space to write add closing stock etc - was using ant like writing
Did exactly the same as you at first floydy forgot interest then kept getting decimels but after i added it it was fine so hopfelly its worked out. I think my closing balance was around the 20s cant really remember. Im pretty sure I got 60 odds before tax and appropriations - 64 to be exact!
Did anyone do q8? the service costing one? how many washes did you get? completely screwed that q up due to time - was getting decimels and all sorts!
we seem to be getting the same answers(roundabout!!) so we may have done better than we thought!! Going to be terriefied when results time comes around!!

I did the service costing one too, cant remember what answer I had, my memory is going in my old age I did get nice round figures for charge per wash and contribution and all that i think though...
Ahh did anyone do part C of question 8? I totally couldnt remember the formula for it (my old ages fault again) so thats another 10 marks down the drain...
